Tap at Black Sensation, Mikkeller Bar. Opaque black with a lively light brown head, good retention and lace. Aroma is hard roasted malts with notes of licorice and what might be a whiff of chili. Taste is sweet roast with a strong licorice note, a whiff of vanilla and a nice chili bite, that gets stronger the more beer warms up. A very, very good beer.

Burned platic and toast nose with prunes. Mahogany, thin beige head. Intense toasty flavor with mulberries. Sourwood and chili pepper at midpalate. Creosote finish. Soft carbonation. Hitting on all pointsd as usual for Mikkeller. The bouquet seemed a little off but I think that was some weird cumulative effect of the very different aromas together.

750ml bottle that I scored for $7 which s good because I would not have bought it at $14. Looks like your standard porter, black with a decent head. Smells slightly like a porter but here come the chipotles, uh oh....The flavor is overwhelming, straight chipotle peppers and adobo sauce smothering the porter to death. Both me and my friend found this to be very one dimensional. It wasnít gross but it wasnít tasty either, Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-09-2011 21:54:25

Pours thick and creamy. Burnt, creamy, hoppy and then....the chili kick! Works really well. A wonderful stout with flavors of chocolate and chili that really go well with each other. Excellent!

shoulderbroken (3755) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 16, 2012
Tap at Belg Aube Roppongi. Dark brown, dark golden small bubbly head. Looks dangerous and dirty. Aroma is roasty, lots of coffee bitterness, lots of spicy chilli. Taste is nice, coffee bitter initially, spice creeps up at the end to a full on chilli taste. Slightly smoky. Long spice and smoke finish. Got a real bite to it. Exactly what I needed at this stage, a few drinks down the line. But one was definitely enough.

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is roast, coffee, slight smoke, molasses and bready malt. Flavour is coffee, sharp pepper, roasty malt, bread, sharper pepper, faint caramel, sharper pepper > continue >>>... Good thing I like spicy.

RoyalFlushing (326) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle poured a deep black with an enormous mocha head that dissapated slowly leaving intense lacing. Aroma includes roasted malt, smoke, and pepper. Taste begins with coffee and roasted malt before bakers chocolate is introduced leading to a peppery finish with slight chipotle burn on the throat. Nice mouthfeel with smokiness and relatively intense chipotle flavor/burn lingering. Chipotle should have been better balanced (e.g., Stone 11/11/11 blending green chili).

Bottle. A little smoky, a bit more chocolately, and a lot more firey. Iím not sure it comes together, but Im not complaining.

Tap. Deep brown, near black. This is amazing. Pepper is very subtle heat. Really smooth porter with huge rich malt.
