Bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’s place. Thanks Stas & Vova. Black with a nice brown head. Strong aroma of roast and lots of chili peppers, somewhat vegetal, coffee and a bit of smoke. Roasty flavor with some sweetness, smoke, coffee, a bit of chocolate, some vegetal peppers and and mildly hot finish. Medium to full-bodied.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Cornelius. Black body with a huge tan head. Great lacing. Aroma of chilli pepper and milk chocolate. Flavour of smooth roasted malt and a very light spice. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft fizz. Tasty, but less spicy and complex that I hoped.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black colour with a large thick tan head that dissipates but leaves a small head that retains. Aroma - chipotle pepper comes through more like green pepper, dark dark chocolate, earthy, coffee, roasted malt. Great mouthfeel, the chipotle pepper just comes through on the finish. Slight tickle on my lip. Good balance of sweetness, slightly vegetal, some chocolate and expresso. Really good!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pitch black body with a thick, creamy brown head. Nose has rich aromas of cocoa beans, coffee and caramel. Taste is sweet with a slowly developing peppery hotness and a lingering bitter finish. Low carbonation and thick, creamy palate. Very well made and nicely balanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from LCBO. Dark almost-black body with umber highlights and a thin cap of dark tan foam. Leaves some seriously oily looking legs on the glass when swirled. Big aroma - charred malt, wet oak, dark chocolate, and deep smokiness. Smooth body, low carbonation. Nicely integrated flavours, with the big, malty porter doing a great job in supporting the smoky chili notes. Quite enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle - pours black, opaque with a small dark cap - rich roasty-cocoa tones in the nose with a hint of spice and smokiness- flavour is a rich thick blend of roasty dark malts with bright hopping enhanced by a piquant sharpness - rich roasty finish with a spicy smoky end to it. I think the smoky chipotle ads to the porter and the use of thi spice was judicious and accurate to make it a great accompaniment to the palate.
