3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Würzig malziger Beginn, leichte Schooladennoten. Hintergründig scharfe Noten, pfeffrig. Die Malzigkeit nimmt wenig ab, die würzigen Noten werden intensiver, die Schärfe nimmt zu. Süß-pfiffriges Finish, die Schärfebleibt gerade noch in angenehmem Rahmen, leicht brotig. 12/11/9/9/6/10

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
