4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour thanks to daknole! Deep brown/black with an intense beige head. Mikkeller makes such attractive beers. Aroma is heavy with dark chocolate, espresso, and a nice underlying spice. Flavor shows the same with additional roast malt, light smoke, and the chipotle spice definately makes itself known. Overall body is full, viscous, and finishes with a dry bitterness and spicy heat. Mmmm.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is viscous and black with a big mocha colored head that has great staying power.
S: A very subtle chili spice that lies underneath a nice smokey and roasty nose. There is a bit of a woody note too, along with a bit of earth and salt.
T: The chipotles give this beer a real interesting flavor. Smoke, spice, salt, and earth all come to mind immediately. The beer is quite rich and chocolatey with lots of roasted character as well.
M: I was surprised when I checked the label to see this beer is only 6.6% because the mouthfeel is very impressive. Very full bodied with a nice creamy carbonation.
D: This is (surprisingly) one of the best Mikkeller beers that Iíve come across. A really nice porter with a well done chili addition.

Please consult your doctor before drinking this beer. May cause heartburn, A strong smell of burned toast, and fire in the back of your throat. Ask your doctor if chipotle porter is right for you today.

My bottle said Chipotle Porter. OK, but not great. Some hints of heat but really no chile flavor. Didnít get much Porter roastiness either. Maybe these chile beers arenít for me despite growing up on the things here in Tejas. I didnít care for Rogueís either.

Bottle via a trade with bu11zeye. Pours with a black body and a tan head. Aroma is smokey, alcohol, chocolate, roast and earth. Taste is alcohol, smoke and spice. Peppery notes. A bit of burn. Dry finish. Not my thing.

Had this at BCTC after the fest, back at the campsite. Pours a hazed brown with a medium sized beige to tan head. Very faint peppers, soft smoke. Chocolate, toast and roast. Subtle chocolate and pepper. Not much heat. Nice.

My slogan was, when it comes to lemons, Iím your main squeeze! .. pours a asphalt black, light headring, only touches of lacing .. . light roast level, goes very well the slight heat from the peps .. . two on the aisle .. . a very nice beer, i enjoyed my small sample but happy i didnít buy a whole 750, i bet it would get a bit much.. . i didnít make a killing at little Alís lemonade stand by slashing prices..

Average brown head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Pitch black color. Aroma of mild spice, hint of chili, coffee and some alcohol. Full bodied with a soft carbonation and thick light dry texture. Sweet, bitter and acidic flavor. Lingering dry and roasted malty finish.
