Dark bodied with reddish brown small head. Chocolate, roasted, earthy. Taste starts af okay, light sweet and good creamyness. But then the burn comes through. Omg, who thought of this combination? Horrible. Scraping the end of your throat. Yuck. Probably will never get a chili-infused beer ever again. (25cl tap at Beer Temple)

Deep black with thick tan head... looks like an Imperial Stout! Head settles very nicely. Aroma of chocolate and barbeque? Must be the chili. Wow, the taste is very nice, the chili compliments this beer very well. Not a killer like other chili beers Iíve had. Tastes like a nice strong porter up front, the chili is most apparent in the aftertaste. This is great, much better than I expected. Far better than any other chili beer Iíve had, and one of the more interesting Mikkeller beers Iíve tried. Letís see how my stomach handles it.

Dark in appearance, with a strange hue in the head -- interesting. Nice smokey/pepper test that comes back to bite you with a spicy aftertaste. Not what a beer should taste like, but worth a try.

The color is spot on but there isnít much head. A lot of roasted notes and smoke in the aroma. The flavor is like youíd expect. A velvety smooth smoked porter with chile heat at the end. Itís a late heat that really lingers. Iíd put the heat on a level close to a mild jalapeno.Certainly not overpowering. And, since itís a porter, if you search for some bittersweet chocolate, youíll find it. The smoke comes out more as it warms. Really pleased with my first chile beer and I want more!

Deep brown with a decent tan head. Aroma of smoke, coffee and spice. Taste is of smoke (slightly ashy), coffee, roasted malts, firewood, with a very pleasant burning finish.

ogivlado (5900) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 26, 2011
Bottled 330ml. -from ōlbutikken, Kopenhagen. Pitch black coloured, medium to big sized brown head, hoppy chocolate nose. Strong roasted malt, chocolate and coffee taste with burning chilli that shows up after few seconds. Well balanced and enjoyable brew. I like chilli a lot so I really enjoyed this one.

Bov (9810) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 26, 2011
Mondial de la BiŤre 2011, Strasbourg - dark black beer with a little dark beige foam left; very roasted chocolatey aroma with notes of ashes and pepper; full-bodied, fairly bitter and with a long hoppy chocolatey finish; very dry with notes of ashes; salty and peppery - superb

PotjeBier (1771) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2011
Tap @ Beer Temple. Black color, brown head, good lacing. Aromaís of roasted malts, cocoa, mocha, spice. Flavor is slightly sweet, roasted, with some spiciness. Medium body. Finishes with more roast, a bit of ash and bitter coffee, only slightly spicy. The spiciness is only moderate so you can actually taste the beer.

LilBeerDoctor (3505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Bottle ("Chipotle Porter"). Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of rich roasted malt, sweet malt, chocolate, and peppers (as in whole peppers). Flavor of roasted malt up front and plenty of heat in the finish. On the bitter side for a strong(ish) porter. Certainly spicier than the aroma suggests, but not overwhelmingly hot. Great porter made with peppers, probably one of the best ones Iíve had (though it canít beat Hunahpus ;-) ) 8/4/9/4/17 [4.2/5

jaghana (4166) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - OCT 21, 2011
Bottle @mondial de la biere. A dark beer with low head, nose is near a strong imperial stout. Aroma is on a creamy roasted and bitter chocolate body with some toasted acrid notes associated with a strong spicy part, intense in aroma, some lignt acidity, strong in many directions, bit spicy but not bad, quite strong roastness.
