Shared this bottle with people in line at the CBS release. Poured from a 750ml into my Deschutes snifter. A: Pours a dark brown with a nice khaki head and leaves a webbed lace down the glass. S: Smells of green peppers, a little chocolate and a little malt bill. The pepper is dominated which I expected. T: The taste blows the smell out of the water. A great smokiness is present first and foremost. The spice from the chipotle gives it a great kick and there is a green paper freshness that is great. There is a slight sweet chocolate on the backend that really rounds it out. M: Refreshing and spicy, medium bodied with a nice carbonation. O: The nose wasn’t too inviting but the taste more than made up for it. Very well balanced. The best pepper beer out there. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-02-2011

SDalkoholic (2331) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 23, 2012
On tap @ Toronado: Poured a jet dark black liquid into a snifter with a perfect layer of tiny head. The aroma is rich and succulent with bold scents of roasted malts while a soft touch of chipotle or some other kind of spicy chili pepper. The flavor is amazing with a bold taste of smoked chili pepper and or dried ancho or poblano peppers. Such a complex yet harmonic balance in this beer that it won me over thus earnings high scores across the board.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 I never bothered to read the Danish label at the supermarket, so only when I got home and slowly went through it again I realised it had chipotle. Oh, what the hell, let’s try it. Interesting aroma, leathery, charred, very much of an Imperial Stout but with a certain nose of olives in oil. Green olives. Pours oily black, with one of the darkest heads I have ever seen. Walnut brown head, very thick. Flavours should make a prefect stout if not for the peppery heat. That spoils the flavour and ruins the finsih. Just too hot for a beer. This Danish concotion doesn’t do much to improve the image of Texas rangers.

Pours pitch black with thick mocha head that lasts. Smells of coffee and chocolate. Tastes of dark chocolate, coffee, mocha, and chili pepper. Bitter flavors mixed with pepper flavors. Finishes spicy with a bitter and spicy linger.

thb (799) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 18, 2012
Thick black pour with creamy brown head (plenty of it, and it lingers). Aroma is rich and stouty - roasted barley, chocolate, leather. Taste is big and bold - great stout which comes across almost as an imperial. Sweetness cut by bitterness and through it all the heat from the chilis. Heat from the chilis replaces the heat from alcohol in stronger stouts. The heat is maybe a bit much in the finish (and I like heat).

Theydon_Bois (16480) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2012
Tap at the Craft Beer Co - 14/09/12. Pitch black with a thin coffee head which soon thin and good lacing ensued. Nose is sweet malt, chocolate, and a little woody smokiness. Tastes of charred wood, sweet chocolate, burnt tones, chilli and a little medicinal at the end, almost whisky like. Medium bodied, but fairly chewy, moderate carbonation, smoky finish.

Idiosynkrasie (6193) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2012
330ml bottle. Pitch black colour with average, frothy to creamy, lasting, lacing, brown head. Roasty, dark malty aroma with notes of leather, herbs, spice, already peppery hints of chili in the nose. Taste is intense dark malty, dry and roasty, hints of dark chocolate, lasting hot, peppery aftertaste; also a Black IPA-like hop note in the finish.

teorn88 (6047) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2012
On tap at CBC, London. It pours a dark brown/almost black colour with a small light brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, raisins, figs, licorice and red wine. Taste is mostly sweet with a closing bitterness from the roasted malts. Notes of wood, coffee, smoke. FinIsh is bitter and hot. The chili peppers show themselves in the lingering hot and spicy aftertaste. Mouthfeel is quite thick with good carbonation. Overall, an outstanding chili stout, with just the perfect amount of spiciness.
