Kestral (506) - Ňrnes, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2011
Bottle@HŚndverkerstuene. Black with a thick, creamy brown head. Good amount of sticky lace. A lot of smoke in the aroma, almost sour smoke, along with nuts, dry cocoa, and some bready notes. A lot of spiciness on the tongue, some chocolate and coffee with smoke, ashes and that heat in the finish. Fittingly thick and creamy with subtle carbonation. Yes, itís wierd, but itís good, itís a cool brew. A whole bottle on my own though, would prove a task.

In short: A spicy (hot spices) chocolaty porter. Well made but not my thing
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed relatively fresh, more than 2 years before expiration date.
The look: Black body topped by a medium brown head leaving lots of lacings
In long: Nose of chocolate cake, a bit of smoke, spicy notes. Taste is very creamy no-so-bitter bakery chocolate, lots of chilli pepper (too much for me), some black coffee, tree bark, lot of grounded black pepper, some woody hops. This is once again a chocolaty spicy beer that I didnít really enjoy. I drank the whole 750ml bottle despite the fact that this is not my style of beer so this is probably a good sign. Thereís something that doesnít sit right with me when beer or food blends chocolate and hot spices. I didnít enjoy the highly rated CCB Hunahpuís and GD Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti either. You can add spicy chocolaty beers to the list of things I increasingly dislike as I grow older. Right behind growing older. (Country Music is still number one)

Bottle shared at Paul and Ryanís 5,000th rate tasting. Pours near black with a tan head. Roasted malty aroma, with some peppery notes. and smoky coffee notes. The flavor has roasted malts up front, some light sweetness and a burning peppery finish. The heat isnít too intense, but itís definitely there. Nice.

750mL "Chipotle Porter" bottle. A jet-black pour with a thick & creamy mocha head that leaves rings of lacing behind. A rich aroma that features lots of smoke, chili peppers, BBQ, cocoa powder, caramel, dark chocolate, vanilla, and some grapefruity hoppiness in the background. Medium to full-bodied and silky smooth on the way down. The taste is moderately sweet upfront with some chocolate, cocoa, and caramel. A fairly dry finish that lingers with a bit of grapefruitiness. Wow! A really authentic BIG chili pepper burn in the back of the throat that hangs around forever. The chipotle peppers actually overshadow the ample hoppiness. Some smokiness (BBQ and charcoal) is present throughout. Interesting and unique. Iíve had other beers brewed with chili peppers, but none have imparted the essence on this level. Another winner from Mikkeller.

I enjoyed everything about this beer - the jet black pour, classic Mikkeller malt character (sweet espresso, tar, chocolate essence and burnt caramel), fragrant hops, and spicy chilli flavour/lingering burn. The malt did become a little cloying, but the overall balance between big, bold flavours was amazing. Unmistakeably Mikkeller.

Jade (409) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2011
Very dark, almost black with a brown head. Looking like a porter, I expected the head to vanish quickly into a ringlet but it stays reasonably creamy. When held up to light, an almost reddish tinge is apparent. Aroma is almost chocolate like. I could sense the pepper, but soon become accustomed to it and couldnít pick it up anymore. Iím not sure if I would have picked out the chili had it not been pointed out to me, but it definetely leaves a harsh, burning sensation on the back of the throat (though certainly not unpleasant). Another cracking Mikkeller.

20110224750ml bottle from State Line. Near black with lasting, tight, brown head. Aroma is weirdly vinyl and burning clutch with some airplane glue and floral orange rind. WTF? But on the palate it explodes with incredible and very enjoyable flavor, completely unexpected, completely welcome. Right off the bat itís mildly smoky, a bit acidic with its roast, and lightly peppery, but within a few minutes the chipotle really comes to the fore with a great, "fresh", obvious chipotle influence. I mean, there would be no guessing what the adjunct was if you were given this blind. Solidly done and very enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this beer, and I like spicy food and drinks, but I cannot imagine drinking an entire bottle of this myself. The peppers begin to stick in your throat. Otherwise I would have a higher rating.

espenra (878) - Kurland, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2011
75cl bottle. Shared with 3 friends. It poured a pitch black colour with a small brown foamy head. Aroma is sharp and smokey with notes of chilli and onions. Some malt. Flavour is also smokey with notes of roasted malts, charcoal and some dark chocolate. The chilli becomes more noticable in the back of the mouth and especially in the throat. A short aftertaste except for the chilli in the throat.
