4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours in black body with really high brown creamy head, wonderful. Aroma has coffee notes, light smoky. Taste has high toffee sweetness, cold coffee after taste, smokiness all over the palate. The lacing is just amazing. I’m not sure if the roastiness comes from the chipotles or the malt, but is just really balanced. The after taste finishes with full toffee, caramel. I don’t get any chilli sensation from it, just a really good and balanced stout. Body is full, high carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
A-pours an opaque black, viscous liquid with a thick creamy caramel brown head with a solid lace.
S-milk chocolate, mikkeller ash and peat moss, hints of smoke, somewhat assertive spice towards the back.
T-milk chocolate up front, notes of smokey peat moss, huge peppery spice in the back that I can’t get over. rough to drink for me but beer spice heads might like.
M-creamy feel, full bodied, somewhat dry with a clean finish.
D-this starts like a milk stout and immediately burns my throat with nothing I enjoy. the pepper is extremely spicy and overpowering in the back lingering throughout the sip.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pitch black with brown medium head. Aroma of coffee, spices, liquorice and burned grass. Taste of chocolate, espresso, wood, chili, pepper and smoke. Could be a little more chili in it to get more flavour than just a dry bitterness.

I really enjoyed this beer, and I like spicy food and drinks, but I cannot imagine drinking an entire bottle of this myself. The peppers begin to stick in your throat. Otherwise I would have a higher rating.

Draft at CASK Pub & Kitchen, London on 5th January 2011. Thick brown with pale brown fine foam ring and slight lacing. Intensely rich woody/peppery aroma and tangy fruits, spiciness and smoke in main flavour profile. Intense and penetrative. Rich smoky finish of bonfire/woodsmoke. Absolutely exquisite.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an opaque black with a brow hat that leaves spotty lacing up the glass. Aroma of chipotle peppers, cocoa powder, dark chocolate & roasted malts. Taste is dark malts, coffee up front that turns into coffee bitterness on the end & then a burning/warming from the chipotle peppers. Very smooth and great blend for the high amount of chipotle pepper in this beer.
