Hermod (5874) - Vantaa, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2012
Tap @Mikkeller Bar 26/2/2012. Poured black with a brown head. Liquirice, peppers and roasted malt in aroma. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Chili comes through mostly in the finish, burns and stays for a while. Not really a friend of chili beers, but this was the best so far of those I have tried.

Foffern (1614) - Bodø, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2012
On tap at Henriks. Dark black colour with a small dark beige, almost creamy, head. Pleasant and classic stout aromas of coffee, roasted malt and dark chocolate with a hint of smoke. The flavours is mostly parallel with the aromas but feels a bit sweeter in the mouth. It ends with a accelerating chili bitterness that lasts. I regularly don’t fancy very hot food, but this chili-burn in my mouth feels pleasant in the end. A fantastic creation!

BenH (3438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 26, 2012
From bottle. Pours thick black with brown head. Aroma of chocolate, biscuit and smokey peppers. Taste has lots of chocolate, smokey edge. Full bodied with a chili warmth and lingering spiciness, deserves a 6 for palate. Excellent

Svesse (7683) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2012
(Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, 16 Feb 2012) Black colour with creamy, brown head. Roasted, malty nose with notes of dark chocolate, black coffee, dark rye bread and hints of peat. Roasted, malty taste with dark chocolate, cocoa, strong black coffee and a certain chili bite coming through in the finish (and growing throughout the glass). More than medium body, fairly dry. Very nice and well balanced stout/porter with an interesting chili bite. Excellent beer.

pintbypint (3272) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 24, 2012
330ml brown bottle. Near black pour, big medium brown head with a creamy makeup. Good lacing. Nose has chocolate/cocoa with a faint spice. Taste has chcoolate, earth, coffee, and cocoa beans up front. Big pepper heat emerges midway through. A little late roasty bitterness. Pepper heat sticks in the throat, coats the lips and builds with each sip. Medium bodied, average carbonation level. Seems to be a nice base porter under the chipotle. Decent beer if you don’t mind the burn.

reebtogi (5399) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 24, 2012
330ml bottle pours black in color with some reddish highlights when held to a light source. A 2 finger light brown head adorns this beauty and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aromas are roasted malts and caramel with some faint hops. Taste is malty and chocolate sweetness with a moderate hoppy bitterness followed up by a moderate chili pepper burn that lingers a while. An outstanding spicy porter which I probably won’t be able to get enough of.

Black with tan head, strong aromas of coffee and liquorice. Strong taste of coffee with hits of chilling as well as a ginger like heat. Taste lingers for a long time.

fiulijn (18103) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
Tasting at Papsø, 7.7% ABV
Black color; brown head, nice lace. Aroma of roasted malt, paper, alcohol, chocolate, light smoke. Roasted malt flavor, strong, sandy; later the chilli kicks in; the smoke is subdued; the combination chilli-roasted malt is quite good but not what I expect in a beer; the smoke touch is present but light as well. A quite good beer, but the chipotle doesn’t add anything better.

EdKing (2322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2012 Bottle from Kris Wines. Pours black with a huge tan head. Looks like a stout. Head stays. Nose is rid dark chocolate, with aroma of fresh chopped chilis/peppers. Taste is strong black coffee, strong and bitter. There’s a very subtle bit of hot chilli on the back of the tongue and throat in the finish. Some smokiness in there too. I’ve never been entirely convinced by chill beers. After a few sips the chili is really coming through strong Re-rate in Craft Beer Co 6/9/12 - tastes better and fresher on keg. Up to a 3.7
