Flowey, hoppy aroma.
Smokey flavour, but way too much chili.

Kolsvart med högt beige skum. Lätt rökig doft. Torr, fyllig len vätska. Rökig, men inte så kärv, växande rökig chilismak som funkar väldigt bra.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Pours black with a creamy brown head. The aroma holds asphalt, black currant, citrus, liquorice, smoke, coffee, light cocoa and clear pepper notes.
The pepper brings som complexity to the otherwise one-dimetional nose. The flavour is light sweet, near medium bitter and tiny acidic. Roasted, smoky and citric with a clear peppery sting. The mouthfeel is clean and numbing with a light to medium carbonation. Li gearing peppery finish (too peppery if you ask me). Light to medium bodied.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
25.4 oz bottle, labeled Chipotle Porter. Dark brown with a fluffy tan head. Nose is hay, chocolate, spruce and chipotle; quite smokey. Tangy, ashy, medium body with a long chili buzz. Taste is French roast, black olive, chocolate and grapefruit. The smoke and raisin of the chipotle can be easy to miss but the heat is quite prominent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle labeled Chipotle Porter, but otherwise looks similar. aroma is smoky but not overly so, with lots of roasted malt and coffee. i dont detect much pepper. some fresh earthy hops though, which is interesting. flavor is sweet heavy porter in front, slightly vegetal in back, with a solid smoky heat in the finish. a bit of burn that lasts in the throat. it pours a thick dark brown, opaque, small rocky dark tan head. heavy body for a 6.6% abv. i dont know, not bad but not my favorite. i think the spice would work better in something less heavy. dont think anyone could drink an entire bottle of this in one sitting...

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a luscious sable just a whisker above black with a very thick and fluffy dark tan head that sticks around for a bit. Aroma has a strong overtone of semi-sweet chocolate as well as molasses and roast coffee notes and a hint of toffee. Flavor fills the mouth with chocolate, roast coffee and molasses tones plus nutty and toffee hints. The chilis add an interesting and unique zing to the full-bodied and fizzy flavor, making it unique among all beers that I have tried so far. A must for porter fans, if you don’t mind a bit of pepper heat.
