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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Anvil Houston 7/30/10. Black with a big tan head. Nose is chocolate with a light peppery aroma. Taste is very sharp and the peppers come out strong. Tangy and hot with some coffee flavors. Very dry. Body is medium and fluffy. Interesting but a glass was enough-a bomber needs to be shared.

Bottle. The color is dark, blackish, tan colored, coats the glass. The smell is peppery, spicy, roast, some chili, and vegetal. The taste is some sweetness, pepper, spice, chili powder, and ok.

Aroma was awesome dark malts and peppers. My only complaint about this beer is the sweet stickiness of it. Since when is a porter this sweet? Weird. But this is a great attempt on a difficult thing to pull off. I never would have thought any beer with chipotle peppers could be any good.

Courtesy of ericandersnavy. As Mikkeller Chipotle Porter. In a snifter. Pours black with a 3 finger dark tan lacey/clingy head. 3 fingers in a snifter? And 2 fingers of beer! I donít know what to say. My nose says food. Like Chipotle Tabasco. If you havenít had that, get it . Full bodied with foamy carbonation. Flavor is chipotle tar. Or chipotle linoleum paste ( got to go back aways to get that one). I just whacked a hanbero sausage in the atomic atomizer, and I think it will go well with this. Itís not chewy, but seems like it wants to be. Itís hot. Not excessively so. But the heat does build a bit. So this is coffee/chipotle? Best I can do. Smooth. Burnt toast. But primarily chili. In the end it develops noticeable chili heat. My scalp is expressing water in response. This may not be super high on the Scoville scale, but it is on the scale.

Pours black with a good sized and long lasting brown head. As dark as most imperial stouts to be honest, lacing like an IPA. Aroma is very intense with chocolate, fudge, earth, pepper, smoke, jalapenos, espresso. The combo really works for once! Flavor follow suit with plenty of fudge, chocolate and espresso malt accompanied by tangy jalapeno-esque flavor, smoke, and a briny sort of spice. Some leaves and dirt. Finishes really spicy and hot from the peppers, but the flavor is phenomenal. Dark chocolate mixes with smoked pepper astringency and heat and the mix is astounding. Finally, the aftertaste exhibits dry toasty bittereness. Medium-full bodied very creamy and fluffy mouthfeel. Points off for the excessive heat from the spice, but otherwise this is without a doubt the finest example of spiciness Iíve tasted in a beer.
