Fire is made with smoked malts and infused with chipotles – smoke-dried jalapeno chillies – for seriously flavoursome, smokey-sweet beer.
Aroma: Big, big aromas of smoke and chilli plus some sweet caramel.
Look: Fire Rauchbier pours dark gold with a nice white head.
Taste: Smoked wood and caramel before the heat of chilli kicks in; heat that gradually builds before reaching a plateau after a few sips, but never dominates the smokey sweetness.
Food Pairing: This firecracker of a beer demands to be paired with authentic Mexican food. Try it with a selection of tacos for fireworks in your mouth.
Verdict: An absolute scorcher; sweet yet fiery – what a mouthful.
