Draught at work. ( I never get tired of saying that). Poured into one of our sampler tulips. Pours medium deep brown, with a black core, thin dark tan head, spotty lacing - surprisingly poor lacing for a draught sample. Nose is big chipotle, very dry and spicy pepper notes with light smoke, sweet toffee/fudge, marshmallows, hickory, and cocoa powder. Flavours of spicy coffee, very woody, like hickory or maple smoke, plus lots of smoke, fudge, and plenty of earth. Not the equal of the Speyside Edition, but then what is?

75cl bottle, home. Good classic mocha lacing; opaque black colour, aroma is grains, leather, chocolate, chilli peppers, bourbon, Devonshire cream and some nice measured hops. Taste is just divine. chocolate, bourbon, smoke, excellent bitterness, espresso coffee, roasted malts, leather, gorgeous dollops of cream, maybe some very faint vanilla, some uey treacle pudding which just oozes class, toffee and chillies. There is a lovely burn to your mouth when you finish this. I love the chillies in this, such a great touch!

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Bottle from Proof. Black pour with a sudsy brown head. Deep chocolate aroma, roasted malts, smoke and peppers in the aroma. Thick chewy, dry chocolate malt up front, roast, light soy with smoke and chili peppers to round out the finish. Nice balance and tasty.

thirstyrabbit (1692) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 25, 2012
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.

pootzboy (1689) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle - pours black, opaque with a small dark cap - rich roasty-cocoa tones in the nose with a hint of spice and smokiness- flavour is a rich thick blend of roasty dark malts with bright hopping enhanced by a piquant sharpness - rich roasty finish with a spicy smoky end to it. I think the smoky chipotle ads to the porter and the use of thi spice was judicious and accurate to make it a great accompaniment to the palate. Top flight flavored porter

gEUS (1685) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2013
330 ml bottle - pours coffee brown with no head. Aroma of motor oil, liquorice, Dutch drop. Medium body with an immediate attack of mouth and throat due to the peppers. Itís too much and not gentle at all... Poured it, pity.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Pours thick black with a dense dark brown head - looks awesome. Aroma of chipotle that you can smell as soon as you open the bottle. Thick body, flavor of coffee and chocolate. The peppers come through throughout and have a nice bite to them. Well done.

Rating #930 - January 20, 2014 - $8.00CAD for 12 oz. at #mondaynightbeers at the Underground Tap & Grill - Opaque dark brown/black pour with a bubbly head that fades quickly. Aroma is toasted oak, chocolate, espresso. Mild carbonation, medium-heavy alcohol warmth (could be the heat-heat). Palate is more chocolatey roasty malt, and a fiery chipotle heat. Rip-roaring spicy stout. Fantastic. Sessionable only for heat freaks Iím sure at 6.6%
