tfredvik (1297) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2013
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"?
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 1.5 years before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Online]

degbert (1296) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Poured from bottle Very nice nose -- almost a mole-like aroma. Dark, dark, dark, with an espresso head. Flavor is dry and complex -- there’s a lot of roasty notes, chocolate, a touch of licorice. The peppers really kick in on the finish; I feel them in my throat more than taste them. Very nice beer.

NordicV (1293) - 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.

Een bier dat absoluut mijn ding niet is. Een heel speciale smaak dat je echt moet lusten

Bendrixian (1269) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
330ml bottle from LCBO. pours a jet black colour. Rich mocha/toffee aroma showing a hint of paprika spice. On the palate it drinks like a stout but has a certain chilli powdery spice and flavour profile. Sports a decent length and quite a good range of flavours this is a very interesting brew. Would love to try the barrel aged versions!

0,33L bottle, BB 17.09.17. Pours black with brown head, the head stays. Aroma is chili pepper, dark chocolate, and spicy. Taste is dark chocolate, chili, roast, smoke, creamy, and coffee. Finish is dark chocolate with very nice chili pepper burn. Overall: really nice spicy beer.

angel77 (1256) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 2, 2013
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.

pentaz (1254) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with a dense brown head. Aroma is very hard roasted malt. Tastes of roasted malt, a hint of smoke? The chili-burn grows ever stronger with each sip. I really like it.

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

Cirrhosis (1248) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 12, 2012
think inky black, with a dense brown crown......looks so thick. Pungent heavy coffee aroma, massive chocolate, good leather, ans yes there is spicy pepper. Do I like this aroma?? Spice really heats up the palate. Heavy thickness is the flavor. Coffee, leather, heat, backer chocolate. SO VERY THICK! The lacing is ridiculous.This is not a hot day after yard work beer.....sigh. My burp had a nice grape fruit hop flavour. I do dig the heat in the brew its perfectly balanced with the flavour. high quality brew perfectly executed but this was not what i wanted to night.
