3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
25.4 oz bottle, labeled Chipotle Porter. Dark brown with a fluffy tan head. Nose is hay, chocolate, spruce and chipotle; quite smokey. Tangy, ashy, medium body with a long chili buzz. Taste is French roast, black olive, chocolate and grapefruit. The smoke and raisin of the chipotle can be easy to miss but the heat is quite prominent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle labeled Chipotle Porter, but otherwise looks similar. aroma is smoky but not overly so, with lots of roasted malt and coffee. i dont detect much pepper. some fresh earthy hops though, which is interesting. flavor is sweet heavy porter in front, slightly vegetal in back, with a solid smoky heat in the finish. a bit of burn that lasts in the throat. it pours a thick dark brown, opaque, small rocky dark tan head. heavy body for a 6.6% abv. i dont know, not bad but not my favorite. i think the spice would work better in something less heavy. dont think anyone could drink an entire bottle of this in one sitting...

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a luscious sable just a whisker above black with a very thick and fluffy dark tan head that sticks around for a bit. Aroma has a strong overtone of semi-sweet chocolate as well as molasses and roast coffee notes and a hint of toffee. Flavor fills the mouth with chocolate, roast coffee and molasses tones plus nutty and toffee hints. The chilis add an interesting and unique zing to the full-bodied and fizzy flavor, making it unique among all beers that I have tried so far. A must for porter fans, if you don’t mind a bit of pepper heat.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2013 Bottle, sample.
Black with a porous light brown head.
Aroma: coffee, chocolate, quite dry.
Taste: chocolate, really hot chili, licorice, coffee, a bit creamy, spicy finish.

Third time I’ve had this now, and each time is better than the last.
Black with a creamy brown head.
Aroma: roasted, coffee, licorice, cocoa, light chili.
Taste: fruity and hot chili, licorice, coffee, cocoa, light creamy, finish has a nice burn.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample tried at Gothenburg Beer Festival on September 3. Pours a black liquid with a small brown head. Smell is of roasted malt, tobacco, chocolate and green chili peppers. The taste is dominated with the smoked character of the chipotle pepper but there is also some liquorice and chocolate. The aftertaste is dominated by the chili heat but as someone used to hot food I don’t take too much notice of the heat. A good chili beer even though I can imagine that people not used to chili would have enjoyed less heat.

Sweet aroma of coffee, smoke, chili, tar and soy. Black color with brown head. Taste of coffee, chocolate, chili. Medium body and carbonation, slightly oily texture. Nice beer! Well, I do love chipotle so I’m not too surprised I liked it.
