4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: APR 8, 2011 Pours dark brown/black with a frothy dark tan head. The aroma is very strong of peppers and might be called a little overbearing. Does not taste like your normal porter. Spiciness is prominent and flavorful while still having those favorable characteristics of a classic porter. Full-bodied and smooth, not too thick, and less than average carbonation. Finishes with a lasting spicy tingle.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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. The pour is a very dark brown with a lingering head. The aroma is all porter, not much else. The taste is has the taste of peppers as soon as you take a drink. Lingers throughout, but not overly hot just a good spice. Quality beer and nailed what they were trying.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

[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.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
