tmoreau (2562) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2014
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. as a 12 oz. serving, dispensed to a Czech-pils glass, showing a black/brown color, with some ruby highlighting, tan head froth, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The nose was maybe a touch of cocoa, not much roastiness, but more hints of cherry, vinous notes, and a bit of tartness. The flavor then presented a lingering, peppery quality that slowly escalated in intensity as the tasting continued, and roastiness that was substantial, but more coffee-like than cocoa. Medium+ bodied, the alcohol was fairly hidden, and the carbonation successfully enhanced the peppery, and only moderately restrained bitterness into the additionally dry finish.

maley1 (807) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 20, 2014
Dark brown pour with small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa, peppers and chocolate. Taste of roasted malts, unsweetened chocolate, hint of coffee, some earthiness, charcoal, and a chili pepper hotness on the finish, also powdered cocoa on the finish. Medium bodied, nice carbonation, a little too spicy on the finish for me.

brokensail (11529) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 9, 2011
A: The beer pours a dark brown color with a finger of tan head. S: Really quite smokey with lots of earthy tones, so the chipotle is really coming through. Plenty of roasted malt and only a mild dark chocolate/cocoa aroma to it. Not really much sweetness. T: I was surprised how much spice this beer had to it. A big kick of heat from the chipotle peppers which also impart a big time earthiness and smokiness to the beer. Moderately roasty with a more pronounced chocolate quality to them. M: Medium in body and carbonation. O: The chile pepper is quite strong, but I thought it was pretty decent and it worked alright with the chocolate and porter base.
