jmgreenuk (7266) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 2, 2012
Draft at Taps Beer Bar Kuala Lumpur. The bar tender thought I might not like this beer, so he insisted I sampled it first! He didn't need to worry :-) Its really unusual to find a chilli beer, but this one was perfect. It was great to taste a spicy beer where the spiciness was from chillies and not from hops. Perhaps a little overpowering for some, but not for me. A great beer. Give it a try, perhaps with a curry! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle at Strefa Piwa, Krakow. Gorgeous in goblet, looks like an impy, dense black with dark brown head. Aroma is also big, and fresh with minty hop overlay and heat. No chili in aroma but in the throat for sure. Balance is fab, dry spicy finish with a natural acidity, chocolate. Stronger than expected, earthy dense Aztec spiced melange of flavors.

yumyum (221) - barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2012
Pours nice deep brown with moderate lacing. Nice smokey and maltiness on the nose. The chipotle is overpowering for my liking. It dominates the flavour and leaves a lingering spicy aftertaste. Likely better with a meal but not or me.

esp0r (2679) - NORWAY - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle shared at a cottage near Blokhus, summer 2012. Bought at Vinspecialisten Aalborg
Pours black with a brown head, very nice laces. Smells of roasted malts, coffee, hops, tar and peat. Medium sweet, quite smoky and peaty, some liquorice. After a while i get a very distinct chili pepper. Guess i found the chipotle chili... Very nice. It lasts and lasts and blends in with the hop finish which is medium bitter. Really want to try this again

hackobock (3283) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2012
On tap at Mikkeller Bar. Dark brown/black with a minimal head. Aroma not as smokey as expected, dark malts and chocolate dominates. Perfect amount of chilies, the heat from the chipotle increases with every sip without taking over. For stouts I prefer a heavier body so if this would have been an imperial stout I would have appreciated it much more.

Bottle from Kris Wines, London. Poured thin and dark brown / black with a velvet-brown head that exploded with roasted coffee malt aromas. Taste was long and complex and ran through sweet cameral to bitter coffee with a spike of chipotle chili in the middle that tingled the tongue then slowly faded from the palette. Awesome beer.

Crompt (122) - York, South Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012 Looks like a thin stout when poured but the smell of this one is amazing. You can really smell the chipotle. Chipotle comes through in the taste and it is a little spicy. The heat gets better and better as you sip on it which is exactly what I would want from a beer brewed with chili peppers. Best chili pepper beer I’ve had.

Oakes (15252) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2012
Pretty much black. Into the goblet w/o much head. Fat rich malt, lots of chocolate and dark fruits. The palate has a stack of bitter chocolatw (not even close to Mexican) and a subtle chipotle character. Some rounded ancho notes, lots of deep chocolatey porter stuff. I personally wod like it smokier but this is nice.

ALLOVATE (2857) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2012
Tried @ Grain Cru - Roll Out the Barrels, Belgian Beer Café.
Opaque black with a depleting tan head and minimal carbonation. Aroma has hints of dark chocolate, charred grain, way too much of ’smoker’s lounge’ ash and tar and a piercing, acidic and herbal hit of green peppers. Good all encompassing mouthfeel, quite smooth and velvety. Dark chocolate is prevalent with a touch of aniseed aiding its liquorish dwell. The swallow spoils all this. Hot burn with an acidity that is actually pleasant but it is the tobacco smoke and emphysema-esque, smokers breath that is far too lingering. It is a husky, tobacco ridden, spiced choc-block overall. Not my thing. (33cL, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

20 cl tasting glass @ Mikkeller bar in Copenhagen, Denmark. Beautiful, chocolate brown pour with thin cocoa-tint head. Aroma of chocolate and heat (something is lurking in there). Almost like a paprika tingle to the nose. A fanatastic porter! Ideal temperature for imbibing . . . the beer has a velvety mouthfeel, coats the palate with a roasted, smokiness paired with the previously mentioned chocolate notes and then . . . the money shot. Boom! The pepper hits the back of the throat! I am in awe of this beer. Probably one of the most amazing beer experiences of my life. What can I say? I bought a 750 cl bottle and drank it when I got back to Sweden.
