Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with creamy tan head. Aroma is roasted and chocolate malts, chipotle and other spices, light coffee, prunes, and light booze.

BeerBeCue (101) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2014
12.7 oz bottle poured into tulip (brewed in Belgium). Pours a nice deep, almost black brown with a 1/2 inch-thick head. Aroma is of roasted malts, oak & whiskey, chipotle, and quite earthy. Taste is bittersweet, leaning more towards the bitter end. There is also some heat from the chipotle. Not too much but it certainly can be felt. This is actually fun! First time I’ve had a brew with some pepper in it so I might be a bit biased, but still. Texture is slick/thin, with light carbo. Finish is a lil’ bit bitter and the oak sticks for some time. Overall this was quite the surprise! I can see (well actually taste) why it’s so well rated...! Mikkeller, you never deceive.

tectactoe (1658) - Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Jeff! Continuous black, with very dark brown & ruby at the edges, topped with a cloud-like, tan head that grows larger than the beer itself & settles very slowly. Aroma is mainly roast & spice. Toasted, nearly burnt malts with char, zesty pepper, chipotle-like barbecue spices. Mild smoke & slight peaty undercurrent. Taste is smoky up front with some more barbecue pepper-y spices that come rushing in. Not so much "hot" or tingly, but quite flavorful. Roasted malts structure everything, light char & ash with more BBQ sauce, chipotle spice, & smoked peppers lingering in the aftertaste. A very interesting beer. The flavors are very nice, but almost so intense that they wear on your palate quickly. In smaller serving sizes, however, it is pretty nice.

I was really worried the chipotle would be overpowering, but luckily it wasn't. Smoky, a bit of vegetal, with a good stout base ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared at the Taster’s Choice gathering. Solid dark brown, nice roasty smokey aroma and flavor. Nice Porter.

Pours black with a low tan head. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, honey, muscovado sugar, slight sticky, peppery notes. Taste is muscovado sugar, honey, chocolate, vanilla, dried red berries. Aftertaste is chocolate and some nice warming chiles. Very nice!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2014
Rating #930 - January 20, 2014 - $8.00CAD for 12 oz. at #mondaynightbeers at the Underground Tap & Grill - Opaque dark brown/black pour with a bubbly head that fades quickly. Aroma is toasted oak, chocolate, espresso. Mild carbonation, medium-heavy alcohol warmth (could be the heat-heat). Palate is more chocolatey roasty malt, and a fiery chipotle heat. Rip-roaring spicy stout. Fantastic. Sessionable only for heat freaks I’m sure at 6.6%

Smokey oak peppery aroma. Very complex malt hop and pepper. Sip slowly to enjoy all the nuances. Loved this brew...just gotta try it.

lesifflebiere (1242) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2014
D’un noir extrême, aux notes chocolatées et piquantes, mousse couleur cacao, elle est épaisse et très aromatique dans l’ensemble. Soyeuse et adorablement corsée, elle émet les saveurs attendues de chocolat et de café, mais le mélange est admirablement bien équilibré, de main experte de toute évidence, à défaut de détecter à fond le chipotle. En dehors de ce détail, c’est un stout qui frôle la perfection. Mikkeller frappe encore.

agent_persik (383) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 12, 2014
Black color, medium brown head. Aroma of coffee, licorice, dark chocolate and smoked bacon. Taste has dark chocolate, licorice, roasted malt and hot pepper, dry sweet with bitter finish and mildly hot aftertaste. Full body and soft to medium carbonation. Interesting hot beer and overall quite good porter.
