3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Oooh. My 100th American beer. Appears resinous amber with a full white head that sank and left excellent lace. Aromas of stewed fruit, malt and then a dangerous undertone of violent pepperiness. Like Talisker whisky without restraint. Initially creamy and fluffy and then the flushes of peppers. Bitterness suggests itself and then comes the piquancy just as you’re trying to think of other things to write. It lingers as a capsicum spray on the palate. It is piquant without being overwhelming.
I have had two beer related pepper-gasms: Mikkeler Texas Ranger, which was utterly remarkable; Mussel Inn Heat Rash, which was intriguing and I have had another experience when I was 5 when I rubbed drying Cayenne pepper into my face. I was wary for nearly thirty years. With this beer, I’m a little disappointed there wasn’t more thrown back to crying child who thought his face was on fire.

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

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.

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!
