Black in color with no real head to it, maybe a little bit of mocha foam. Wow, the smoke and chipotle aromas are absolutely overwhelming. Overdone chipotle, smoke, and earth notes. Lots of roast and a little bit of coffee. The flavor is so smokey and heavy on the chipotle that is almost dehydrating. Brutally overdone smoke, charred wood, roasted malt, and maybe some coffee.

Tap at The Bruery Reserve Party. Strong smoke and chipotle flavor that overwhelmed. Not nearly as good as the normal Smoking Wood. A little too much for me.

Dark pour, almost black, with a thin tan head. Smokey, earthy, peppery heat, roasted peppers, chocolate, and roasted malt. Definitely some heat in the throat, but not completely overwhelming. I actually enjoyed this, very chipotle.
