3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 won’t 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 didn’t immediately say chilli to me, hoppy too. But the gentle burn in the finish explains everything - yup, it’s chilli.
14 Very good chilli beer, possible one of the best I’ve had. It’s very mellow and unaggressive (but I am very much a chilli fan), fitting in with the roast very well.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle [As Mikkeller Chipotle Porter] @ weekly tasting shared with Thompson. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized quite quickly diminishing brown head. Aroma is malts, roasted malts, a bit earthy. Taste malts, roasted malts, earthy again, peppers come through very subtly so even I (who cannot stand spicy food or anything spicy for that matter) can drink it and -above all- enjoy it. Medium to full body, soft, yet suitable carbonation. Quite pleasant.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
