Draft at YNWA: Fine light brown head, lasting, colour is black. Light elegangt nose were the chili is only vaguely evident. A bit dissapointing as it is light with some chockolate pudding. Medium body and long burning taste. nice soft entry with some chockolate and bitternes and then BANG - the chili hits you. Weird and fine that I dont have to try it againe...

I hate to say it, bc I have loved every Mikkeller beer Iíve ever had, but this beer sucks. Itís not the chipotle, itís not the barrel aging, it just tastes like a bad recipe, and I couldnít quite finish the bottle. It was well packaged, presented cold, well carbonated, and just foul tasting, very vegetal, and no chipotle notes at all. Not sure where it went wrong, but itís sooo bad.

Taster at DBS. Full flavor of spicy chocolate/coffee malt. Flavor sticks around in the throat, like hot peppers in Mexican food. Had a distinct bitter flavor. Good beer, but bring the TUMS.

Bottle @ home. Black coloured beer with a dence brown head. Rather spicy slightly roasted and malty hinted aroma. Creamy full palate. Slight tinkling on the tongue. Finish is full, malty hinted with a linguering heat of the chili peppers. Developing flavour of chili, long ending. This is rather bizar. Creamy stout combined with some nice chilli heat you would not expect from a beer. Actually rather good still. I like this!!!

750 from Frank Smithís. Pours..wow, this pour is thick, deep black with very little light through, and a 3-finger brown head that stays around longer than an unwanted house guest. Nose is huge black patent and choc malts, peppers, both black and red, and hops...huge hops. The nose is Alpha Klausy. Tastes rich, smooth, velvety, with a big choc syrup, cacao, and roasty black patent malt flavor, a lot of peppers, and a lot of hops. This one is very complex, very easy to drink, and the chipotle bolsters and accentuates the malt and hops. This one is delicious.
