Nice sublime chipotle ale, light in body with a hint of pepper. Sourced directly from their rogue farms. Solid chili beer if that’s your thing!

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2014 Surprisingly malty. Not too much with the Chipotle until the middle to back end and mild at that. Which suites me fine as Hot Pepper beer isn?t my thing (my wife bought it for me). All in all I enjoyed it.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a clear amber with two fingers of off-white head diminishing gradually to a thick ca and heavy lacing. Nose is... bizarre: smoky green jalapeños, caramel malt, and something I can’t identify. Taste follows, with a moderate spiciness that grows as the pint progresses. Medium body, low carbonation, and an off-dry finish.
I’m sorry, this is nasty. As in, sink pour territory - and I don’t generally do that, plus I love spicy food. This just doesn’t work. Save your time and money and don’t bother. I’m coming to the conclusion that this is a brewery that you can’t blindly support. Some of their brews just don’t work, and this is the poster child for that.

650ml bottle. Pours hazy copper thin off white head. Aromas of malt some spice I guess a little chipotle. Taste is the chipotle up front and nice spice in the throat. Very unique but I like it.

Spina @ fob.
Ambrata con schiuma eterna.
Affumicatura davvero importante, con finale piccantino.
Non sarà il massimo della bevibilità ma è molto intrigante e particolare

Pours....I dunno, was dark out, but the head was soft and frothy. Aroma of malts and something. Taste is malty, light roasted, finishes with a little peppery flavour. It's...ok I guess. Chipotle? Not really.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transfer from BA review on 8-18-12 -
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served a golden amber colored brew with a one finger white head. The head faded rather fast to leave a good level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a malty and ready smell. Mixed with these aromas are some hot pepper as well as a smoky and char like aroma.
Taste –The taste begins more on the malty side. This more bready taste is soon met with some smoke and char flavors more toward the middle of the taste. The chipotle in the name is, for the most part , absent up till the middle of the taste, at which point some light hints of pepper heat are detected. At the end the spicy flavor gets a bit stronger (although never really all that potent) and leaves a light spicy heat aftertaste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The beer is on the average side in terms of thickness with a carbonation level that is average as well. A good compromise for the more malty and spicy characteristics of the brew which overall create a good drinkability.
Overall – The beer has some good flavors and feel, but is not really something I would ever pine for on any real occasion. Worth a try, but nothing exceptional.

Coppery pour with a thin off white head. Smell is caramel, malty, and something I can’t put my finger on - not bad, just not...right. Flavour is sweet, caramel, slight spiciness to it, a little smoke. It’s not bad - not as spicy as I expected, fairly subtle, grows on me after a few sips. Most vague review ever.

I like the appearance, but not crazy about the rest. Caramel color, short-living head, little lacing. The aroma literally have me a little headache. Spicy and formaldehyde with pepper.
