3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2012 Bottle at SBWF 2011. It poured a dark brown liquid with a dark brown head. Smell and taste of choklad, coffe, dark malts and chili. Interesting beer. Re-rated in 2012 on tap at Bishops Arms in Örebro. Im not sure if this is a good beer or a very interesting. I guess it all depends on if you like chili or not because this one pretty much fucked up my tastebuds for a couple of hours.

Pitch black color, subtle smokey and chipotle nose with some dark chocolate notes. Big chipolte and spicy chillies, like chili in a bottle. Intense, very unusual, but complety kick ass beer. Wow. Chilies linger in the finish. Excellent

(bottle) Thanks to Stoutragious. The chipotle comes through with ample smoke and pepper flavors. The long after burn deep in the throat. Thin palate. Very Unique.

Sampled at GBF11
Black with a beige head.
Flowey, hoppy aroma.
Smokey flavour, but way too much chili.

Kolsvart med högt beige skum. Lätt rökig doft. Torr, fyllig len vätska. Rökig, men inte så kärv, växande rökig chilismak som funkar väldigt bra.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Pours black with a creamy brown head. The aroma holds asphalt, black currant, citrus, liquorice, smoke, coffee, light cocoa and clear pepper notes.
The pepper brings som complexity to the otherwise one-dimetional nose. The flavour is light sweet, near medium bitter and tiny acidic. Roasted, smoky and citric with a clear peppery sting. The mouthfeel is clean and numbing with a light to medium carbonation. Li gearing peppery finish (too peppery if you ask me). Light to medium bodied.

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...
