Pours a thin brownish black. No head present, aroma of coffee and muddled peppers. Taste follows, nothing amazing but interesting. I'm glad I got to try this.

Bottle. Deep black pour with a very light, off white head. Nice, coffee aroma with a strong, spicy aroma. Roasted chocolate as well. Nice, coffee taste. Ends with a good bite. The second beer I have had with chipotle spice and I love it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with a tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee with slight spice notes. Flavor is fairly big coffee with a slightly bittersweet finish. Pepper is not as noticeable in the taste, a slight burn in the aftertaste is about it. Not bad, fairly solid stout.

pours thick black with almost no head. Distinct coffee aroma,with a decided chipotle tone. Iím not surprised that this is a very roasty beer with hints of chipotle and coffee throughout. Not a great beer, but not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a large, tight tan head. Nose is earthy malt, a nice rich roasted coffee, cocoa powder. Pretty thin mouth, flavors focus on the light, earthy malt and that rich coffee bean. Finish is long and earthy, a bit tingling. I wouldnít have picked it as being chipotle but it makes sense. Pretty nice stuff, I would have liked a thicker feel but this is good.

A - Pours a dark black with a hint of brown mixed in and a finger of frothy khaki colored head atop. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind a touch of lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of some roasted and burnt chocolate and coffee with a touch of sweetness and some peppers.
T - Starts off with some roasted and slightly burnt chocolate malts and coffee with a bit of hot pepper in the background. Through the middle some more pepper flavor comes through with some bitter coffee flavor and a bit of earthiness. The finish is a mix of roasted chocolate and coffee with a touch of pepper.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth was a warming, roasted, and dry finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nice stout and the touch of hot chipotle is a nice touch for some depth.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the IJTBP. Pours pitch black with a thick creamy head. Has one of the best noses on any beer Iíve ever had. Very strong hints of smokey coffee and chocolate. Taste backs this up completely, medium body mouth feel and finishes with a bite from the chipotle pepper.... Just awesome, one of my favorites for sure.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours black. Head lingers and slick nasty pea size yeast float but j donít care. Nise is coffee, chocolate, rich caramel, and fruity hops. Flavor is same coffee and dark chocolate but now just a slight amount of smoke comes through and some complex roastyness. There is some evident pepper heat lingering in the finish after all other flavors give way. Not sweet in the finish but not really dry. this one is excellent. nice drinker and complex. thanks Kasey!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at restaurant Mesa in Costa Mesa. Thick black with a tight head. You can instantly smell coffee and chocolate. The flavor is the same, but with a hint of perfectly balanced spiciness. A bit chewy on the palate and easy to drink. Excellent stout.

A great creamy brown head on top of a smooth, intense, bakerís chocolate with delicious mocha undertones. One of the two best stouts I ever had.
