Bottle: † Muddy in color, deep dark dirty brown, small to moderate beige head, fairly nice lacing. † Wow, that is chipotle on the nose. † Reminds me of the chipotle mayo at Brouwerís Cafť. † Similar tongue, a touch of heat and funk. † Has a vinegar like sweetness to it too, like pickled chipotle peppers or something. † This one is unique, and while a bit odd, its hard to put down. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Finishes sweet, salty, spicy, and peppery, with lingering chipotle. † Very unique.   Word of advice tho, donít let it warm up or it gets a bit more sour versus sweet vinegar.

Thanks to Dustin for sharing this bottle! Gusher -- gushed and gushed and gushed. Chili peppers; wine, funk, basement, lavender. Another 1-of-a-kind Epic food beer - this one reminds me of bbq potato chips that I dropped and ate, despite not fully cleaning off all the dirt.

"We made this farmhouse ale with rye, barley, hops and smoked serrano peppers. Itís a blend of smoke, spice, earth, fruit with funk layered throughout. Many thanks to Santos for inviting us to do this project. Cheers!"
Another Buckeyeboy addition to tonightís tasting. A HUGE gusher.. we lost more than half the bottle.
Nose shows plenty of smoke and chilis...
Fruit mirrors the aroma with a sorta funky/sour element that actually ties it together a bit... Still, this doesnít jive too well with me. It reminds me of salsa juice. Would go well in a bloody mary.
Again, I respect the vision.. but overall this brew is just not for me.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2014 originally rating from 2013- Cloudy orange brown pour gusher thin tan head. Aroma of apples. vinegar, chipotle. Tastes like a slice of whole wheat bread slathered with acidic bbq sauce. Dry creamy finish. Awesome savory brew.
rerated 10/22/14 Acidity has intensified a bit more. more earthy than I remember. sharpness to finish. still a wonderful brew. delicious.
