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.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 1, 2011
330ml bottle (S. Brevinga Alus Salons, Riga)
7 Lovely roasty aroma, spicy hops too, a touch nettly.
5 Black, gorgeous tight tan head. Alas the barman pouerd in all the crap, but I wonít dock points for that.
7 Lovely rich roasty taste, a real buzz of tingly hops. Burntness is very dry but not astingent.
4 Very smooth palate. I would say slick, but the careless pouring might explain that, so again not docking points. Great tingle in the mouth, but it didnít immediately say chilli to me, hoppy too. But the gentle burn in the finish explains everything - yup, itís chilli.
14 Very good chilli beer, possible one of the best Iíve had. Itís very mellow and unaggressive (but I am very much a chilli fan), fitting in with the roast very well.

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.

Bottle. Creamy lightbrown good mostly lasting head. Black colour. Heavy malty and light hoppy nice aroma. Moderate bitter flavor. Alas too much chili. I hate chili in beer!. Long moderate bitter burning finish. Improoves with chocolate I must admit. Creamy palate.

Christian (12888) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 18, 2010
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.

Ferris (12748) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle - Chocolate and smoke with a bit of spice, almost like a Mole. Jet black with a creamy dark brown head. Bittersweet chocolate which mellows to an almost milk chocolate and finishes with some peppery heat on the back of the throat. I feel the chocolate notes overwhelm the real chipotle flavor, but I do still enjoy it.

Scopey (12536) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2013
Keg at CP&K. It pours near black with a light tan head. The nose is roasted malt, light smoke, chilli, dark chocolate and earth. The taste is charcoal, tar, earth, roasted malt, light chilli spice, smoke, charcoal, toast, coffee grinds and mild acidity. Medium-full body and moderate carbonation. Smooth, good depth of flavour and well balanced. Well done.
