Dark brown, almost black, bubbly dark brown head. Nose is roasted malt, smoke, oak, floral hops. Taste begins with toasted malts, light hops and dark chocolate then develops into a nice chipotle-heat. Heat builds up as the bottle empties. Nice.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2014 Bottle from Hökeren. Pours dark brown with a brown head. This is really something. The aroma is mainly chocolate and some fruit/port/madeira. The taste, oh boy! Burned/roasted malts, some hops (pretty fresh bottle), loads of chocolate, some sweet notes and then...the chili kicks in, bites and hangs on for a long while. One of my favourites. Feels more like a stout than a porter. Looking forward to see how it will taste after a few years ageing.
Added 120715: Pretty much the same as the last time but with some milk chocolate/cold cocoa drink in taste. Chocolate malts is more prominent this time.
Rerate 140413: Thinner than all previous times, chili has no growing heat for each sip and is overall very weak. Not the usual great flavour either. I’m disappointed. Perhaps just a batch variation.

MotherBrother (891) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2012
Tap @ mikkeller bar. Pour black, with a small creamy tan head. Aroma is rather roasty, of oatmeal, roasted malts, slightly smokey, and a heavy dose of spicy chillies. - quite spicy!! Taste is a little sweet, with a little bit of roasted bitter and spicieness. Medium-full bodied, with a slightly flat carb.

Bottle. Poured hazy dark brown color with a large frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, wood and smoke aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted smoke malt bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

Defreni (2979) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2012
Fad: Helt mørk øl med et fint rødligt skumhoved. Duften er meget stout. Men med en tand chili. Den chili slår for alvor igennem i smagen. Virkelig en lækkerbisken og meget balanceret for dens stærke tendens.

Bottle from Bierkoning. Dark black with lowrising puffy tan head. Nose is peat, malts, spices, cocoa and coffee. Taste is nice chocolate, roasty malts, sugar, vanilla, chocolate shake. Texture is creamy and oily. Finish is strong with the chili coming through. Enjoyable throughout.

Draft. Deep brown/black body with a deep tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, hop leafs, wood with a hint of flowers. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter, though the bitterness does not linger into the finish or, rather, is overtaken by the chipotle pepper heat. Medium body, velvety texture and moderate carbonation. This is one rich porter with just the right amount of pepper hotness. Dry with tastes of chocolate, coffee, smoke.

Opaque black beer. Frothy brown head. Smoked chilli pepper nose. Softish palate. Sweet creamy dark malt. Well blended smoked roasted chilli peppers. Tangy with a nice blooming warmth that is just about right and doesn’t blow your head off! Sublte fruit, well buried. Thought this would be a stinker - so pleasantly wrong!

Ktwse (3828) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2012
On tap. Pours black with very small tan head. Aroma is very roasty, thick malt, with coffee, cocoa, pepper, oak wood. Taste is all about the chipotle, really, it’s very spicy from the start. I have a recipe for baked black beans that we do with chili, dark chocolate and Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey Chipotle, it’s absolutely amazing. This beer is like a liquid form of that dish. It’s rich and full, malty and roasty, and very spicy. A perfect finish to the night. Great stuff!

ej (1224) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2012
Pours pitch black with a frothy, creamy, brownish head Aroma is roasted malts, caramel and hints of booze. Taste is roasty with hints of caramel and coffee at first then giving way to the soft burn of hot chillies. Finish is slightly bitter with lasting burn from the chili. Palate is close to full and softly carbonated.
