Pours pitch black with a thick mocha head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma has rich chocolate, a hint of dark fruit, and mildly boozy whiskey notes. Flavor has bitter bakers chocolate, a subtle hint of dark fruit, and mildly smoky roastiness with just a hint of oak and a hint of peppery burn. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry, very roasty, bitter finish that has just a hint of smoky burn. Interesting beer!

Bottle. Pour is black with a thin brown head. Aroma has notes of whiskey, toasted oak, vanilla, peated malt, smoke. Tastes sweet with chocolate, chilies, whiskey, burnt malt, leading to a dry almost ashy finish.

Bottle sample as "Mikkeller Barrel Aged Chipotle Porter"at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Ariel. Pours black, opaque, tan foam. Coffee, peanut butter and roast aroma, brilliant chili-chocolate taste, smooth, long aftertaste and full body. I love it.

12.7 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. The head stays around a little while, and there’s a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells like smoky whisky, dark chocolate, roasted malt, and a bit of chilies. It tastes like bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, smoky/peaty whisky, oak, and some light chilies. The chili flavor does get stronger as the beer warms up, but it’s not close to being overpowering at all. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s a bit creamy and coating, and has moderate, soft carbonation. It certainly goes down easy enough. I think it’s a pretty good brew. It’s pricey at $11.99 a bottle, but I’d probably buy it again at that price.

DSG (6332) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Ariel. As "Mikkeller Barrel Aged Chipotle Porter". Black with a light brown head. Powerful burnt aroma of dark chocolate, whiskey and some spiciness with chili peppers notes. Sweet burnt flavor with dark chocolate, some chili peppers and a dry roasty finish with a bit of hot pepper feel. Full-bodied. Nice.

Good stuff that doesnt taste much different then the original. The barrel aging resulted in a light peaty smokyness and slight woody tones. Base beer is still great stuff with subtle pepper flavor and a great base porter.

This is ridiculously impressive. Got a new respect for Mikel and his borrowing of others equipment. The barrel aging doesn’t overwhelm at all, it is a trifecta of balance between the chilis, the porter malts, and the barrel aging. NICE!

Massive Mikkeller pt.2. Dark pour, jet black with brown head. Big notes of bourbon and chili peppers here. Chocolate flavor is pretty heavy as well. A slow sipper but very enjoyable.
