3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours reddish amber with a one finger off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of earthy chipotle, caramel, sweet malts, pine, and some toasted malts. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and an spicy, semi dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a decently tasty pepper beer.

Reddish brown pour. Malt, smoke, a bit of chili pepper make up the flavor. It’s pretty good but I wish I liked it more than I do.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on draught at the Bull in Highgate. Deep golden, going on copper, colour with a white head. This ale starts sweet with toffee flavours and a slight smokiness creeps in. The chilli hit comes later. In between there is an enjoyable fruitiness with notes of quince. Very full mouth feel. The beer is well hopped and has a pleasing bitterness. The chipotle flavour, with its smokiness and chilli heat, is surprisingly well integrated. An excellent and original beer from Rogue.

Bottle at the Roadhouse Barbecue, Bangkok. Poured a clear mediun amber with a thin white head. The aroma is light malt hop.

Cloudy amber-red-brown with a glass-full of kace and two finger head. Aroma of malt, hop, caramel, yeast, spice, peppercorns and grass. Taste has a slight spiced hop kick. Subtle heat that disappears as soon as the watered down hops come through. Smooth watery palate. Chipotle pepps finally are noticeable on the end.

"this one is definitely unique & spicy (for better or worse) with a roasted quality not found in many chile pepper beers. i’d never be able to drink a 22 of this by myself, so i consider the drinkability low, but it goes quite well with tamales. 7/11-still dont realy dig it. spice and smoke, rough around the edges. eh."
