I love spicy stuff, but don’t mess with my beer. I seriously felt like I drank a beer that someone puked in.

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.

Honey gold, white head. Wheat aroma. Spicy pepper kick, a bit light on. Smoked? Not bad.

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.

It’s ok. Really just a bit of smoke and a warming aftertaste. As much as a smoked ale as anything. Kind of thin.

650ml bottle from Beers of Europe. 5%, 40 IBU, according to the bottle. Pours hazy amber, thick white head. Aromas are malty, caramel, vanilla, light spice, green vegetables. Taste is more of the capsicum, light spicy heat. Clean finish, but not a big fan to be honest.

Interesting. A solid ale as you’d expect from Rogue with mildish hops and caramel and vanilla from the malt but a very distinct spicy heat that kicks in late on. Happy to have tried but I’ll stick to more traditional tastes in my 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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy amber with lasting lacing white head. Aroma of malt and slight spiciness. Most of the chipotle is in the aftertaste, it tastes like a solid pale ale with a building pepper flavor. I love peppers, I’d drink it again!
