Really rich aroma, mainly of chocolate. Some raisin, sticky brown sugar and coffee. Not much trace of the barrel. Taste is slightly earthy, the chocolate element comes through, coffee note and then a long subtle chilli heat to finish. Best beer I’ve had in a long time.

Memory banks rate, drank a lot of this when I was getting in to beer, still think it’s a great drink, never mind beer. So much going on. Red wine barrels, as I recall. Dark brown, thin but persistent tan head. Aromas of chocolate, faint chilli, red wine, oak, vanilla. Taste is more of the same.

375 ml bottle picked up locally at home. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, peppery spice, wood, mild barrel notes, a mild smoked character, the heat enhances rather than dominates the beer, drinkable, pretty solid.

BeergeekKorea (107) - SOUTH KOREA - JUN 28, 2015
Draft at Mikkeller Bar in Seoul. Deep red, dark colour and sticky thin head. Aroma of spice and the bourbon. Tender palate starts, spicy dark malts taste like coffee and another one of yeasts. And finishes with following flavour of yeasts and the bourbon, not strong. Pretty good.

tom10101 (5045) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
Bottle (375 ml). Split 3-ways.

Appearance: Dark brown with a medium brown head and little lacing.

Aroma: Cocoa, bourbon, spicy/chili notes, light vegetal presence and roasted malts.

Taste: Light to moderate acidic presence. Cocoa, anise, bourbon, chili and cinnamon.

Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Warming finish from the chipotle chilis that gives the impression that the beer has a much higher abv.

Overall: Good spicy porter that is drinking like an Imperial Porter. Tasty. Decent balance considering the adjuncts. I liked it.

cmacklin (759) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
375 ml bottle. Pours an opaque, dark brown with a huge, frothy, brown head that laces. Rich chocolate aroma with roasted malt, oak and a hint of chili. Sweet flavour of chocolate, roasted malt, bourbon, oak, lighter notes of chili, vanilla and smoke with a subtle warming alcohol finish. Full body with a creamy, oily texture and soft carbonation. A well balanced, excellent brew.
