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.

Hazy tan orange in color... Aroma of light peppers, biscuity malts, caramel... Flavor is actually mostly biscuity and caramel malt forward, only slightly peppery... Solid

650ml bottle. Strong spiced flavors with a slight malt aftertaste. Having never tried Chipotle before I was not sure what to expect. Interesting beer but not quite to my taste.

Golden colour. Off-white lacing. Sheer Jalepenos on aroma. Some honey and spring dew as well. Taste is old school IPA, hot chili, hot finish. Meh. Not my kinda thing. Don’t really get this one. Sorry!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Cambridge Winter Ales Festival 2016. Honey brown with a slight ring of white head. Aroma produces some chilli but also strawberry jam, cereal and wood shavings. Sweet-savoury chilli taste with a pronounced sour note in the finish. Slight pine and maple syrup suggestions as the sip slips away. Subtly warming chilli on the lips. Aftertaste is a bit glue-y, not sure about that. Good all in all and worth a try.

Bottle. Pours dark gold with a creamy thin white head. Aromas of sweet caramel malt and slight vegetables. Flavors are grass, smokey crackery notes, sweet malt, tobacco, vegetable notes and a slight hot pepper burn. Thin but creamy mouthfeel. Actually, a well-made beer, but the addition of chipotle peppers takes the flavor in a direction that isn’t terribly enjoyable. This reminds me of a rauchbier crossed with a lager. Without the peppers, this would be a pretty delicious ale.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing an orangey gold, almost amber color, with some soft white head foam that reduced expeditiously to a ring & film, and left some wavy lacing on the glass. The nose was light smoke & pepper that presented a bit of betadine/Band-Aid scent, with some light fruit involved. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste included moderate & lingering, earthy bitterness, with dryness, and "better late than never" pepperiness to the finish. Okay, but the introduction disappointed.

Pours clear copper color with off white head. Aromas of caramel and peppers with some smokiness. Smoked pepper flavor with slight heat and some caramel. Medium body with average carbonation. Better than I was expecting.

I love chipotle! Thin head, weak aroma, but sweet of anything. Some smokey. Flavor is of smokey chipotle, kind of spicy, but very mild. A bit of malt character comes through. Overall the chipotle dominates. Finished sweet, yet dry. Not bad.

Keg. Honey coloured with a thin white scum. Nose is honey sweet with a firey pepper. Taste is thin, a light lemon then a hit of pepper/paprika. A bit "meaty", but a but overly thin to excite. Burny, but not hot...
