Bottle - Chocolate and smoke with a bit of spice, almost like a Mole. Jet black with a creamy dark brown head. Bittersweet chocolate which mellows to an almost milk chocolate and finishes with some peppery heat on the back of the throat. I feel the chocolate notes overwhelm the real chipotle flavor, but I do still enjoy it.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a nice dark brown head. Aroma of hard roasted malt, coffee and chipotle. Flavours are of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, spices - the usual stuff, but with the smoky taste of the chilies - followed by liquorice - in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is full and has a bitter (but good) finish. Very pleasant to drink - if you’re into spicy beers. I like it, but I wouldn’t want to drink it all the time.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is smoky, chocolate, roasted malts. I don’t really get too much of the pepper in here, mostly just the smoke. Taste is somewhat bitter and smoky. Nice and thick. Lingering smoky aftertaste. An intense porter. Chipotle is mild in the taste, and you have to think about it to really get it.

Lingering aftertaste of campfire, but in a pleasant and rewarding way. Smells incredible. Chipotle is quite mild but the bite is there, blended well I think.
