3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark body, medium tan head. Sweet and roasty aroma with some coffee. Big sweet and roasty taste. Finish reveals the chili heat. Not sure if I like chili in beers or not. If you want your beer to taste hot, why not just crank up the ABV? The stout base is good, however.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Henriks. Dark black colour with a small dark beige, almost creamy, head. Pleasant and classic stout aromas of coffee, roasted malt and dark chocolate with a hint of smoke. The flavours is mostly parallel with the aromas but feels a bit sweeter in the mouth. It ends with a accelerating chili bitterness that lasts. I regularly don’t fancy very hot food, but this chili-burn in my mouth feels pleasant in the end. A fantastic creation!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; Pour is murky brown with a two finger, fine bubbled dark khaki head in this glass - it has a nice feeling from the appearance perspective. The nose is caramel and cocoa bean, with some grass and light spicing present. The flavor profile has a medium mouthfeel initial, modest sweetness. It has a robust center, moreso than expected for something in the 6.66% range, as its called. It finishes with mild bitterness, chocolate bean and roast, moving to more grass and a touch of red chili pepper, but quite modest as far as heat is concerned. Anyway - a nice porter

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2014 This is the most viscous looking beer I’ve had in a very long time: the pitch black liquid barely drips out the bottle! A large, creamy and very dense head with a scary dark brown colour forms easily and stays big for a long time before settling as a thick layer. Lots of foam is still clinging to the glass after the Texas Ranger is gone. The aroma is very strong and not surprisingly on the malty side. It’s heavily roasted with dark caramel, coffee and liquorice, some fainter chocolate and in the back I get traces of fruits and berries and even some juicy tobacco. Delicious! I can’t say I pick up any chilli in the aroma, but the chipotle certainly is obvious in the flavours! Especially in the long, moderate bitter aftertaste, the burning chilli makes this a beer you don’t hurl down, this is definitely a sipper. The initial taste is moderate sweet, and this soothes the palate for a while, until the next wave of chilli attacks. Other flavours include roasted notes, coffee and liquorice, and more pronounced notes of chocolate and tobacco that I found in the flavours. I also get vague hints of leather. The mouthfeel (and throat feel!) is very rough due to the chilli, and in the beginning it was actually a bit unpleasant. Further down in the glass I’m slowly getting used to the roughness. The body is full, the texture is very oily and slick, the carbonation is soft. A wonderful and intense beer, although it’s a bit demanding. The most demanding part is of course all the googling that’s involved: how to pronounce "chipotle"?

750ml bottle that I scored for $7 which s good because I would not have bought it at $14. Looks like your standard porter, black with a decent head. Smells slightly like a porter but here come the chipotles, uh oh....The flavor is overwhelming, straight chipotle peppers and adobo sauce smothering the porter to death. Both me and my friend found this to be very one dimensional. It wasn’t gross but it wasn’t tasty either,

Rich, dark, and roasty with a hint of smoky spice hinting at chipotle peppers. Pretty awesome.

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.

Dark. Not much chipotle but can definitely pick up smoke. Rounds out to strong coffee.
