Tap @ Beer Temple. Black color, brown head, good lacing. Aroma’s of roasted malts, cocoa, mocha, spice. Flavor is slightly sweet, roasted, with some spiciness. Medium body. Finishes with more roast, a bit of ash and bitter coffee, only slightly spicy. The spiciness is only moderate so you can actually taste the beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle ("Chipotle Porter"). Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of rich roasted malt, sweet malt, chocolate, and peppers (as in whole peppers). Flavor of roasted malt up front and plenty of heat in the finish. On the bitter side for a strong(ish) porter. Certainly spicier than the aroma suggests, but not overwhelmingly hot. Great porter made with peppers, probably one of the best ones I’ve had (though it can’t beat Hunahpus ;-) )
