A: The pour is viscous and black with a big mocha colored head that has great staying power. S: A very subtle chili spice that lies underneath a nice smokey and roasty nose. There is a bit of a woody note too, along with a bit of earth and salt. T: The chipotles give this beer a real interesting flavor. Smoke, spice, salt, and earth all come to mind immediately. The beer is quite rich and chocolatey with lots of roasted character as well. M: I was surprised when I checked the label to see this beer is only 6.6% because the mouthfeel is very impressive. Very full bodied with a nice creamy carbonation. D: This is (surprisingly) one of the best Mikkeller beers that I’ve come across. A really nice porter with a well done chili addition.

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 !!!

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.

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.

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 don’t know what to say. My nose says food. Like Chipotle Tabasco. If you haven’t 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. It’s not chewy, but seems like it wants to be. It’s 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.

Bottle. Poured hazy dark brown color with a large frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, wood and smoke aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted smoke malt bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

Chipotle Porter bottle. Pours jet oily black with mocha tan head. Aroma is fantastic vanilla bean, chocolate, chipotle pepper and smoked wood. Taste is very complex chocolate, coffee, vanilla and chipotle pepper. The pepper gets stronger as it warms, but is always satisfying. Smooth and extremely well crafted.
