Sampled at GCBF2010 as Chipotle Rauchbier? Never mind, its chili in any case which is evident from the aroma. Murky brown  Strange flavour mix: lactic start, roasted paprika, smoked and burned notes. Chili finish. Peversely fascinating. Meaty burn in the back of throat.  Medium body. Grows on me somehow.

(Draught) Sampled at GCBF 2010 on September 10, 2010. Very different from the Island norm. Sour, smoked and very very spicy. Vegetable crazed. Interesting beyond the realm of comprehension. Good stuff from a Victoria-fixture.
