4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black pour, thick tan head with reddish hues on edges. Ample lacing. Nose is chili peppers, coffee, some roasted malts. Taste is rich chocolate, chili peppers, coffee beans. Lingering hot pepper burn. Smooth, full sticky mouthfeel. Body more like a stout, even an imperial stout, than a porter. This was way, way better than i had anticipated.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Pours an impressive inch-thick dark beige head with good retention that leaves a nice lacing pattern - i.e. the looks of an imperial stout of twice the ABV. Pitch black colour. Aroma of sugary roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, licorice and a slightly vegetal element akin to raw coffee beans. Medium body, soft carbonation, rich mouthfeel, again reminiscent of stronger stouts. Dry malty, woody taste with a prominent but pleasant chili heat - ’medium hot’, I guess. This is balanced by some sweetness and a little acidity that is amplified by the chili. Mildly bitter coffee-vegetal aftertaste with a lingering chili burn.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Belmont Station. Deep brown-black pour with a short brown head leaving minimal lace. Nose is chocolate with a hint of spice. Medium-heavy body and moderate carbonation. Baking chocolate, black cherry, oak and dark roast. Finish is more bitter chocolate, oak, charcoal and some spicy peppers, but I couldn’t swear they were Chipotle. Really liked this one, as I do most of the Mikkeller brews.

Bottle opaque black with brown hue. Nose roast chocolate and chillies. Taste bakers chocolate sweet dark fruit and hint of chipotle burn on the end, smoky hint. As it warms more subtle bourbon flavirs mid palate. P.S. great pairing with oaxaca chocolate bar from Vosges.
