Bottle @ WWT IV. Clear dark amber color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, pretty sharp peppers but I have to say I really can’t stand hot and spicy stuff, some leaves. Burning hot peppers in the finish, too much for me.

Pours slightly translucent dark brown body with reddish hues. Thin light tan head. Roasted malt and cocoa aroma with a touch of smoke. Taste is bitter chocolate, some burned coffee. Charred oak and a hint of tobacco. Dry finish; the pepper really comes through on the back end. Heat is not overpowering, but enough to take notice. Nice addition of spiciness. Enjoyable with good complexity.

Pours pitch black with a one finger beige head. Peppery aroma with just a hint of smoke. Flavour wise it starts of with notes of cocoa, charred wood, some fruitiness from the pepper and the end is spicy. Alright mouthfeel with good amount of carbonation.

I’ve enjoyed a lot of chilli beers before and usually the heat is best when mixed with food but here the Chipotle is subtle enough for just quaffing. I’ll pair with fajitas shortly.
