Chocolate, coffee, aroma that is quite complex. However this does not match the taste that is quite sour. Not so tasty.

Had a glass of this from a bottle at the Arbor Brewing Company sours & fruits tasting. Didnít take formal notes. Pepper, spicy, dark.

Firkin sample at MiWBF 14. I was a bit disappointed in this. Didnít get a lot from the cocoa nibs and the pepper was a little heavy at the end. A bit of a gritty mouthfeel.

tap. Near black with small head. Thick stout with some coffee and bourbon barrel. I also pick up some strange pepperiness that makes more sense now that I see the reference to Chipotle peppers. Iíve had a lot better barrel aged stouts.

Draft at Logan's Alley - pours a murky dark brown . Some faint bourbon aromas but mostly espresso and chilies . Medium pepper spice with Italian espresso . Pretty good . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark black with a aroma of peppers and roast. Taste is tart and roasty. The peppers shine forth. Tart yet spicy. Interesting. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled provided by jale. Thanks, Jim! Pours a very dark brown color with a half-finger of mocha head and a few bubbles on top as it goes down. The nose brought a lot of roast character and coffee. Nothing too extreme, but it worked out quite well. The flavor added in a few other components, with the chipotle becoming present here along with a touch of chocolate. The roast character is still prominent along with the coffee. The feel is where the chipotle really comes in, bringing a spicy note that I didnít really feel complemented the all flavors all that well in its extremity. Toning it down a bit would definitely help blend the flavors quite a bit more. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-07-2010

Bottle thanks to Jale...Pours an ugly dark brown, amber hints. Light tan head doesnít show me much...Aroma of chocolate, and a little chipotle heat, not much going on...The taste is just wrong, this is more of the aroma but not a good combination for some reason. I didnít drink much of this, nor did the 7 other of us as there was still half a bottle left at the end of the night. Donít bother.

on tap @ slow bbq. this is much better than arborís regular espresso love, which i think tastes like crap. a bit thin, just like the regular love, but much tastier. the peppery taste is certainly present. not something iíd want again, but it was decent.
