dnicolaescu (1935) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 17, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Opaque black, espresso head. At just 6,6, the aroma is of a „big” impy - rich sweet dark chocolate and cocoa, coffee and molasses. Notes of spicy chilies and, especially, some smoke. The taste follows the aroma (though, it is not as big): classic chocolate/cocoa, the sweetness is easily balanced by burnt woody notes as well as roasty acidity ans light grassy hops. You can barely feel the heat of the chilies. Medium, smooth body. Very good.

Yorker (1934) - Herning, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with some sediment and a tan head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate, and chilli. Flavour is roasted malt and a huge, delicious chilli bite.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Thick black pour with a creamy brown head. Aroma of chili peppers, chocolate and espresso. Flavor is great chocolate and roasty espresso with a bit of the peppers coming through. Awesome.

NordicV (1932) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2014
Nästan helt svart öl med ett lättare brunt skum. Doft av rostad malt noter av kaffe och mörk choklad. Detta återkommer i smaken med viss aksa. I eftersmaken så dyker det upp balanserad chili-hetta. Jag har ofta svårt för öl där chilin tar överhanden. Här samarbetar den med övriga smaker.

JDBaker11058 (1908) - Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2012
Appearance: deep near-black with a huge, rocky, creamy dark tan head that very slowly shrank to a thick cap and collar, with generous lace rings. Aroma: strong notes of chocolate, a whiff of coffee, growing notes of pine as it warms, and some black pepper. Taste: dark bitter chocolate, followed by roasty (almost burnt) coffee and pine, with black pepper spice. Finish: slowly rising (but low-burning) chipotle heat, with a chalky-dry mouth. Notes: Awesome. I’ve tried a handful of beers made with peppers (chipotles, acho chilis, etc) and this is by far the best and most nuanced. It’s really just a great porter with some nice chipotle notes that add depth, spice, and adventure without overpowering or dominating the backbone of the beer. Incredible palate as well: smooth and creamy, almost like liquid velvet, which really lets the flavors shine and the peppers sparkle. Bottled as Chipotle Porter, bottle from the Perfect Pour in Columbia, Maryland.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 22, 2011
[keg at BrewDog Edinburgh] Deep chocolate brown pour, verging on the black. Thin white head. Pretty spicy pepper aroma, coffee and extreme bitterness. Nothing fruity about this one – black pepper at first, then rising through the spiky chilli kick. Oily bitterness. Harsh on the back of the throat. Well made, but beer should be rewarding. I guess chilli beers just aren’t for me [21082011]

zgaier (1889) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Pours black with a brown head and aroma of roasted malt and peppers. Taste is sweet, lots of roasted malt and chocolate with light pepper spice notes that lead into the finish. Spice is light but noticeable, and goes well with the roasty, chocolate.

Kita (1870) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l, shared with Hoppiness crew. Murky dark brown color with medium creamy light brown head and nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, dried fruits with some peppery hints. Taste starts with moderate sweet and rich roasted malt, follows by chocolate note and fruity acidity. When beer gets warmer chipotle chili peppers break loose and create warming and tingling spicy mouthfeel, while spiciness is still present in medium bitter aftertaste. Full body, syrupy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Above excellent...
