You can just get that smell of pepper mixed in with the aromas of smokey coffee and chocolate. The roast chocolate rests on your palate along with slight vanilla and slight coffee tones as well. The chili comes in at the end, when the sweetness gives way to that nice burn in the back of your mouth. A very memorable beer, and even with its spice, I found it very drinkable.

Barrell aged chipoltle porter bottle.Poured to a lager pub glass.Initial 3 finger cinnamon tan head,lots of lacing. Fantastic aroma,mainly a malt milk chocolate, a little carmel and sweetness,somewhat fresh bready.You can kinda detect some heat.Vanilla bourbon oak tones.Great aroma! Taste is smooth medium sweet,creamy chocolate with a light but smooth kind of roastyness fairly bready with the creamyness and some dark cherry kind of edge to it, there is a nice bitterness in the finish balanced and smooth as well.Some earthy oaky dryness comes out as it warms giving it a mild woody chocolate dryness.The chiplotle heat comes out a bit in the finish but i probably wouldnt know it had i not known chipoltle was in it.But you can start to notice it in the finish as it warms.

Date: December 3, 2011 Mode: Bottle Source: Binnys Description: Opaque black pour with some head and lacing, aroma is roasty and chipotle / chili pepper, taste is similar with some whiskey / bourbon, smooth and medium bodied, aftertaste leaves some chipotle for sure but not too overpowering.

(Draught at "la Capsule" Lille, 30/10/11) This one remind me coffee (roasty?) flavour in mouth, like a smoked sensation. It is a black, cloudy beer, with medium bitterness, soft carbonation, and creamy in mouth, Really spicy and long finish, you’d better keep this beer for the final taste if you want to taste another ones.

mjs (5372) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2011
(Draught at Sorbon, 20111115) The beer poured black. Its head was huge - pouring took some time - and light brown. Aroma had roasted malts, smoke and liquorice. Palate was full bodied and burning (not alcohol burning but chilli burning) with medium carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, coffee, liquorice, chilli pepper, hops, ash and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty and bitter. The chilli burning was quite intense. A surprisingly good chilli beer.

Wombata (535) - Kobe, JAPAN - NOV 20, 2011
On Tap. Aroma: Rich stout with coffee, chocolate and some smoky roasted red pepper, though I didn’t notice it initially, it showed itself after a while in glass. Palate: With time it gave a bit of a bite, though not too much. Flavor: Sweet coffee and chocolate with a hint of roasted red pepper that, with time, comes out more on the mid-palate and finish to give it a spicy kick. Comments: The flavors work well together and the pepper seemed subtle initially. Even as it warms up and gets a bit spicier, it isn’t overdone. A success.

Draft @ FFF’s Anny Party...pours a dark black, the head on this is out-of-control. Nose is lite on the chili’s with more of a focus on the roasted malts and chocolate notes. Silky mouthfeel, lingering on the tongue...starts with some really nice dark chocolate notes, along with a bit of coffee...BUT THEN, the peppers come through. Wonderfully balanced, the chilis compliment the dark malts perfectly and leave a lingering burn. Admittedly, a full glass was a bit hard to get through, but still a damn fine brew.

glennmastrange (2445) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2011
Bottle. Moderate to heavy bitter chocolate, strong coffee and burnt for the malt, moderate resin and earth for the hops and yeast, with notes of tar, smoke and a whiskey type alcohol, Head is small, frothy, light brown with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is really dark brown, just about black. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and heavily bitter. Palate is medium to full, creamy, with a soft to lively carbonation and light capsaisin burn, dry in the mouth and sticky on the lips finish. A very good, bold and rich type beer. The chili burn at the end is a subtle and pleasant surprise.
