Black with a big and lasting light brown head. Aroma of malt, licorice, smoke and chili. Sweet and roasted flavour with a hot spicy finish. A bit too much for me.

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 donít know what to say. My nose says food. Like Chipotle Tabasco. If you havenít 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. Itís not chewy, but seems like it wants to be. Itís 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.

Black with a brown head. Aroma is hard roasted malt, dark chocolate, peated smoke and chili. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and bitter finish, where the chili really sets in and burns your throat. 080510

pitch dark, smooth brown head. nice roasted aroma, brown sugar, spicy chilli tinge. flavor is mild roasted stuff, as a base for some pretty heavy chili. sort of a chili porter. The chili is good.

brokensail (10744) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
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 Iíve come across. A really nice porter with a well done chili addition.

Bottle as Chipotle Porter. Nearly black, brown head. Aroma of smoke. Peppers really overwhelm the beer, to the point that you need antacids. The BA version is much better.

Tmoney99 (10551) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2012
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.
