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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
66cl bottle from BottleDog, London. 12-09-2014.
Pours hazy dark copper with nice tan head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Smoky, coffee, spicy aromas. Medium body (maybe some more body would be appreciated), average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is hot, smoky, coffee. Hot flavours dominate, but yet balanced beer, smoky notes being very subtle at the beggining. Really hot aftertaste. Very enjoyable.

Poured from a bomber to a shaker pint glass. Deep brown with thick tan head. Light smoke and boozy aroma with minimal chocolate note. Coffee/roast flavor with a nicely balanced spice/heat from the chipotle as an after flavour.

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from bomber into pint glass. The aroma is a bit disagreeable, with a pungent pepper and smoke flavor that is less appetizing than it is foul. The flavor is solid though. Moderate smoke with a mild spicy bite. I would like it to be hotter, but it was still hotter than I expected. Though the beer is kinda straightforward and not very complex, it executes what it sets out to do.

12 fl. oz. on tap @ The Lower Depths. Pours very dark brown with a low off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts, smoked ham and chipotle. Flavor is roasted malts, smoked ham and lots of chipotle in flavor and burn. Good balance. One of the best chili-beers I’ve ever had.
