4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On keg at Brewdog, pours as a thick textured black imperial stout, with chocolate malts, toasted coffee, chilli, smoked vegetable, all coming together well in a smooth finish. Excellent beer, unusual because of the thick velvety finish for a 6.6%.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle of Chipotle Porter. Pour is very dark with a medium rich looking brown head. Aroma is loaded with roasted malt, light caramel, light chalk,, light smoke, and light dry stone. This is very earthy. Lots of deep geologic aromas. Flavor is sweet roasted malt up front with notable campfire ash, light coffee, and a faint spice. The finish is long, smoky, and roasty with notable burn in the back of the throat. Not too much, but notable. Really a very rich body for a 6.6% beer. Really good. Less fruitiness than expected.

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,

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.

Bottle to pint glass.
Aroma of chocolate, toasted malt, cereal, straw, and sawdust. Thick black with a creamy brown head. The taste is of smoke, chipotle, and pine. Medium to heavy bodied, creamy and acidic.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A-opaque cola brown with thin cocoa brown head. Minimal lacing. A-coffee and toasted malts overwhelm the nose. Some pepper, salt, smoke and chalk carry to the end. M-mild carbs with slightly watery feel for a porter. T-espresso, smoke, chalk and grains start the taste. Lingering, potent pepper takes over and has a motivated spicy finish. Pepper pretty much takes over the taste after initial contact, with earthy, vegetable notes clawing from underneath.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Pingvinen, Bergen. Pours an almost perfect black, with a fingerthick creamy and coloured head. Like a proper stout should. And, …what? Not a stout? But the aroma is nice burned malts, with coffee, chocolate and toffee notes. The body is nicely creamy, with a soft carbonation. And the flavour is sweet with burned malts, coffee, chocolate and… Hmmm, black pepper. And chili. Yes, lots of chili, and it’s getting hotter and hotter throughout the finish. Someone might argue that it’s a bit over the top with all this perppery chili? Well maybe not your average stout, but it sure kicks hard and strong for a 6,6 ABV. Nice one.

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!
