4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
It pours a light amber and gives the same color body. A really nice looking foamy lumpy white one inch head appears and lasts for a good three minutes before gently dieing into the body. Some spotty lacing is left. The smell has the jalapeno peppers powerfully up front, malts only come in after a half an hour of warming up. The taste is the same adding a very nice dry smokey aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium and sharp on the tongue, possibly because of the peppers that were added. A nice "hot" feel rushes over my tongue after about five minutes of having a couple sips of this, interesting. Overall, this is good for me and good for its style.

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. The flavour is moderate bitter light sweet with a smooth resin hop bitter light spice palate. Medium bodied witn average carbonation. Nice and smooth but I hoped for more flavour and a lick in the tail.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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."

Had this beer with some jalapeños brats - very good.
I thought the beer had just enough of a bite to it and wasn’t overwhelming. I would have it again.
