3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from LCBO. Dark almost-black body with umber highlights and a thin cap of dark tan foam. Leaves some seriously oily looking legs on the glass when swirled. Big aroma - charred malt, wet oak, dark chocolate, and deep smokiness. Smooth body, low carbonation. Nicely integrated flavours, with the big, malty porter doing a great job in supporting the smoky chili notes. Quite enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle - pours black, opaque with a small dark cap - rich roasty-cocoa tones in the nose with a hint of spice and smokiness- flavour is a rich thick blend of roasty dark malts with bright hopping enhanced by a piquant sharpness - rich roasty finish with a spicy smoky end to it. I think the smoky chipotle ads to the porter and the use of thi spice was judicious and accurate to make it a great accompaniment to the palate.
Top flight flavored porter

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
dominantou tohto piva je pražený jačmeň, jemne sladová chuť s nevýrazným chilli a chmeľ som nenašiel vôbec. - štipľavá chilli chuť sa stane výraznejšou po dopití fľaše, od obsluhy viem že chilli porter sa dá spraviť aj zaujímavejšie a lepšie a také boli aj dojmy po dopití tohto piva príliš ma nezaujalo ale má svoje kvality pre ktoré sa oplatí ho skúsiť

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
True to its name, the smoked chipotle shines through from start to finish, though for the $18.99 price I paid, I had hopes that the overall flavor would expand as the beer warmed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Slightly smoky chocolate with a tiny bit of jalapeno vegetable and promise of spiciness. Opaque black with ruby highlights under a ruddy brown sheet of a fine bread. Smoky flavour is not phenolic with dark chocolate coming in late, followed by a touch of spice and an almost dry finish. Appropriate, moderate to medium bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation.
