MiP (13513) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2010
Draught at KØ10. Roasted aroma. Black colour. Dark brown head. The flavour is sweet and roasted. Has a distinct hop bite, tastes like chili. Which it is, I am told. Gets a bit hot, but is good.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2011 Bottle at Morten & Heidi’s - Shared with Morten & Mette (Heidi didn’t like it). Pitch black - brown head. Burned, high burned, sharpness, light chili taste, peppery, smokey, nice smokey, chocolate, medium hoppy, vegetable hoppy, thick body. Chili burning finish - too much for me.............Re_Rate: New version is a bit more smokey and less chili burning... lovely !!!

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2011 On tap at KØ-10. It looks lovely in the glass, with it’s black body and brown head. The aroma and flavor is just as gorgeous, and I’m really looking forward to have it again. The aroma has roasted malts, alcohol, licorice, lots of roasted malts and a nice chili touch. The chili leaves a pleasant warmth in the flavor, with coffee and roasted malts as a base, some licorice coming through too. Full-bodied and chili-warming, with chili and roasted malts in the finish. Chili the most evident of those. Ummmm. Rating: 9-5-9-4-17-4.4. 100506

Bottle, 75cl. A black one, looking unclear, and topped by a medium sized tan head. Smoked nose with coffee, chocolate, chipotle chili, some sweetness and a touch of peanuts. Rather toasted, smoked flavor with chili, choclate, coffee and a malty sweet backbone. Full-bodied, warming and hot, finishing with roasted malts, coffee and chili. A balanced beer with lots of delicious flavors. Even though I downrated it a bit, it’s still a gorgeous beer, one I need to revisit. 101015

TBone (12448) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2012
Bottled 330ml (Drink Shop, BB ?? 10)
Dark opaque brown color, good creamy brown head. Coffeish chocolaty aroma, roasted with herbal notes. A bit milky too. Not so pleasant. Maybe because of chili? Medium-bodied. Coffee, burnt-roasted maltyness. Some tar/smoke and milky sweetness. Gimmick here is nice chipotle burn in the aftertaste. Otherwise this is not the best of Mikkeller Impys but chili works here very well.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2012
Pretty much black. Into the goblet w/o much head. Fat rich malt, lots of chocolate and dark fruits. The palate has a stack of bitter chocolatw (not even close to Mexican) and a subtle chipotle character. Some rounded ancho notes, lots of deep chocolatey porter stuff. I personally wod like it smokier but this is nice.

Tap @ Ørsted Ølbar, Cph.
Pours a lovely, almost completely black. Small, frothy, brown head that stays. Aroma has chocolate, soft roasted malts, walnuts, a hint of pepper and soft liqourice. Medium carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Very lovely flavour, just how I like it in balance. Fat malt, light roasted, dark chocolate abound, some coffee. Then lots of creeping, soft chili hotness. Long, lingering, dry, roasted, chocolate and hot finish. Lovely.
