look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy, mahogany color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and poor lacing. Smells of sweet malt, citrus (dates and/or cherry), sweet malt, earthiness, pale malt, hint of hop. Fits the style of a Chile Beer. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a slight heat. Tastes of caramel malt, sweet malt, citrus, earthiness, hint of roasted malt, hint of hop, and slight chile. Overall, sweet, earthy, and citrusy; a great blend and the heat is the perfect amount.

Very mild for a chili beer, which is expected with the chipotle peppers. Easy drinking and quite tasty, with a little bit of heat for the after taste.

I've been impressed with both beers I've tried from Piney River.

If you're looking for something a little more mild than habenero sculpin this is a great beer. Right away you get some heat which fades to a real gummy sweetness. The beer is a little surprising in that it finishes with that nice smokey chipotle zing. I thought this was a very nicely balanced beer. Great, non-overpowering, yet unique beer for the start of your next tasting event. Cheers Piney River!

Canned on 12-10-13

Pours an effervescent copper/auburn with a pinky of sand colored head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Peppers, dark fruit

T: Figs, pears, & smokey pepper up front. Jammy notes as this warms, a touch of persimmon & a little more heat, a touch of golden raisin & drynesss as well. Finishes with subtle smokey heat, a whisper of leafy hops & pears/dates

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation

Subtle use of pepper heat & a nice sweetness to counter it. I'll take this over straight up heat, are you listening Stone? Drinks easy
