Aroma: Smoke, tar, smoked meat, rich as hell.
Appearance: Black as can be medium beige head, lacing.
Flavour: Same as in the nose with a warming and peppery finish. First beer I’ve tried that has chili in it, and it makes it’s prescence known.
Total: I liked it a lot.

Barrell aged chipoltle porter bottle.Poured to a lager pub glass.Initial 3 finger cinnamon tan head,lots of lacing.
Fantastic aroma,mainly a malt milk chocolate, a little carmel and sweetness,somewhat fresh bready.You can kinda detect some heat.Vanilla bourbon oak tones.Great aroma!
Taste is smooth medium sweet,creamy chocolate with a light but smooth kind of roastyness fairly bready with the creamyness and some dark cherry kind of edge to it, there is a nice bitterness in the finish balanced and smooth as well.Some earthy oaky dryness comes out as it warms giving it a mild woody chocolate dryness.The chiplotle heat comes out a bit in the finish but i probably wouldnt know it had i not known chipoltle was in it.But you can start to notice it in the finish as it warms.

This is the Chipotle Porter version I received from madbeerbaron in a trade. Thanks again! Pours a completely opaque, very dark brown, with a well-retaining khaki-brown colored head. The head is reminiscent of a root beer float. Dark chocolate, cocoa, and licorice on the nose, with a bit of char wafting out as well. No chili notes to speak of. The mouthfeel is thick, but not viscous. A lot of smoke in the flavor. Chili pepper is noted very clearly. Sweet malt in the middle. Finishes with a charred flavor.

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!

Half Pint at Euston Tap. Black with slight bubbly dark yellow-brown head. Spicy, ’hot’ but otherwise smooth chilli beer. Quite different to the barrel aged version if I recall it rightly.

Pretty intense but an absolute delight on the palate! Pours black w/ a thin tan head & little lafing. The aroma is quite chocolatety w/ subtle pepper. The taste chocolate upfront & finishes w/ a little zest. It’s a perfect mouthfeel w/ everything going on & overall a very good beer!

Rough large foam. Clear coffee aroma. Good taste of coffee with light chilli touch. Lovely fullness, very filling and delicate. From Mikkeller however, I had hoped for a little more clear chili, but it’s not so.

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.
