Had on tap at Mellow Mushroom in Johnson City, TN. Arrives almost pitch black with a thick dark tan head. Really good lacing and head retention. Coffee and dark chocolate are most evident in the aroma. There are some spices there too. The flavor is all dark chocolate and coffee up front with some peppery spice in the background. Pepper becomes more apparent towards the middle and finish as a moderate warmth builds in the back of the throat. Some smoke is there too. Overall this is an awesome beer. I don’t think I have had a chili beer before that was this nicely balanced. The warmth is just right and the chili flavor doesn’t overwhelm the rest of the beer. Really glad I got to try this one.

This is the Chipotle Porter version I received from madbeerbaron in a trade. Thanks again! Pours a completely opaque, very dark brown, with a well-retaining khaki-brown colored head. The head is reminiscent of a root beer float. Dark chocolate, cocoa, and licorice on the nose, with a bit of char wafting out as well. No chili notes to speak of. The mouthfeel is thick, but not viscous. A lot of smoke in the flavor. Chili pepper is noted very clearly. Sweet malt in the middle. Finishes with a charred flavor.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 Botella de 33cl tomada en varias ocasiones durante 2012 y 2013. Alucinante porter de color negro con espuma algo oscura y persistente. Aromas intensos a maltas tostadas y final de lupulo verde. Sabor tostado principalmente con algo dulce de caramelo y chocolate y lo mejor de lo mejor el final picante, no excesivo, del chile chipotle -mi favorito en el mundo chile mejicano-. Una grandísima cerveza que con sus 6 vol. deja atrás a muchas otras porter o stout de mayor graduación con la que la he comparado (F. Dog gonzo, por ejemplo). Una de mis favoritas del mundo Mikkeller. """"""&qu caña en Cimeria 27-12-13 Alucinante como no. Segundo día de barril y parece que es un poco más picante que la botella. Cuerpo medio se bebe bien. Sabores maltosos quemados que terminan en un agradable picor que domina sobre el resto. Una grandísima caña.

[Bottle] shared by Armin. Thanks! Pours tarry black with a large head of big bubbles. Aroma is smoky, moderately roasty and ashy, and the pepper is in the background. Flavor is nicely roasty, perfect amount of pepper spiciness hiding behind the smoke. Finish is a nice lingering heat and roast.

Gachupines (888) - USA - AUG 22, 2012
Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee with notes of chocolate. Flavor is intense, surprised this isn’t a stronger beer. Strong roasted coffee bitterness mellowed out with a sweet dark chocolate finish. Finish was fairly mild then there’s just a slight pepper bite in the finish. Smokey throughout and aftertaste is rich but not cloying. Impressive beer, well worth finding.

750 from Greens. Beautiful black pour with a thick dark brown head. Decent lacing and retention. Aroma was creamy milk chocolate, smoke and a decent chipotle presence. Flavors were super smoky, light cocoa with a long lingering peppery finish. Light heat. Creamy mouthfeel, light carbonation. A nicely done chipotle brew.

Bottle from some where in NoVa - pours cola with big chocolate head some . Aroma is smokey with the hint of jalapeño. Taste is smokey with the warmth of the jalapeño as you drink it down. Nice, but the spice is pretty subtle..

espenra (873) - Kurland, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2011
75cl bottle. Shared with 3 friends. It poured a pitch black colour with a small brown foamy head. Aroma is sharp and smokey with notes of chilli and onions. Some malt. Flavour is also smokey with notes of roasted malts, charcoal and some dark chocolate. The chilli becomes more noticable in the back of the mouth and especially in the throat. A short aftertaste except for the chilli in the throat.

Tejas (872) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2010
My bottle said Chipotle Porter. OK, but not great. Some hints of heat but really no chile flavor. Didn’t get much Porter roastiness either. Maybe these chile beers aren’t for me despite growing up on the things here in Tejas. I didn’t care for Rogue’s either.

Shared this bottle with people in line at the CBS release. Poured from a 750ml into my Deschutes snifter. A: Pours a dark brown with a nice khaki head and leaves a webbed lace down the glass. S: Smells of green peppers, a little chocolate and a little malt bill. The pepper is dominated which I expected. T: The taste blows the smell out of the water. A great smokiness is present first and foremost. The spice from the chipotle gives it a great kick and there is a green paper freshness that is great. There is a slight sweet chocolate on the backend that really rounds it out. M: Refreshing and spicy, medium bodied with a nice carbonation. O: The nose wasn’t too inviting but the taste more than made up for it. Very well balanced. The best pepper beer out there. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-02-2011
