Cafè, xocolata, fosca com la nit, escuma persistent que es menja i amb un lleuger final picant, molt agradable i llarg. Fantàstica.

Smell: A really roasty, coffe, havreflarn (sort of like a oatmeal cookie). Taste: Grapefruit, chocolait, burnt, havreflarn and a quite a heat. Mouthfell: Thick, robust, some heat. Notes: A nice robust porter, interesting, but not one I’ll be dying to try again.

Before this I had only tried the bourbon barrel version which was quite a disappointment to me. The normal version goes a lot further. It smells great of coffee, dark chocolates and cookies without any real sweetness to it. The body is medium to light and actually feels refreshing. A lot of cold coffee comes though with some spices and a lingering warming sensation of chili that works quite well with the beer.

THOUGHTS: Actually quite spicy. Way more heat than I was expecting, but it never reached an unpleasant level. But I love hot stuff and this might be too much for some. It would go nice with some sausages. Rather complex. Would be great even without the peppers, but this was incredible and different. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark brown that was basically opaque black in the glass with a large, light brown head that mostly diminished, but kept a decent sheet and left excellent lacing. The aroma had moderate to heavy roasted malt, dark chocolate, cocoa, and chocolate milk; maple syrup; and hints of pepper and spice (but that might be my imagination.). The initial flavor was spicy, light to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, slightly bitter and slightly sour; while the finish was moderately sweet, lightly bitter, spicy, and lightly sour with a long duration, especially on the spices. There was chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, chocolate syrup, spicy peppers, dark chocolate, cocoa, slight burnt malt, a little dark fruit, sausage spices, caramel and sour coffee. The medium to full body was leaning toward full. It was silky and then a bit dry with soft yet tingly carbonation that intensified when the spice started to effect the tongue. It also had a dry and spicy finish.

Bottle generously shared at the RBSG grand tasting. Labeled as Chipotle Porter. Pours a dark chocolate brown. Aroma is musty with notes of dark chocolate. Flavor is unsweetened cocoa with some chalk. Roasted malt in the finish. Fairly good, but I got no pepper whatsoever.

hopdog (8886) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2011
Chipotle Bottle at RBSG. Poured a deep brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of roast, peppers, and chocolate. Tastes of roast, peppers, coffee, and caramel. Lighter peppery burn that as not overwhelmingly hot.

Sammy (8582) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2011
A great porter, with imperial stout thickness, chocolate, mollases, spicy peppers in the finish. Complex, carbonation right there. Masterful.

Bottle at RBSG. Dark brownish with a small tan head. Notes of roast, cocoa, coffee, strong pepper. Pretty well integrated pepper beer.

A tall, long lasting tan head rises out of this black bodied brew. Rich aroma of cocoa, coffee with some smoke. The flavor follows the aroma with a peppery, slightly hot finish. Very well done pepper beer! I’ll have another one of these!
