Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 17, 2011
THOUGHTS: Actually quite spicy. Way more heat than I was expecting, but it never reached an unpleasant level. But I love hot stuff and this might be too much for some. It would go nice with some sausages. Rather complex. Would be great even without the peppers, but this was incredible and different. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark brown that was basically opaque black in the glass with a large, light brown head that mostly diminished, but kept a decent sheet and left excellent lacing. The aroma had moderate to heavy roasted malt, dark chocolate, cocoa, and chocolate milk; maple syrup; and hints of pepper and spice (but that might be my imagination.). The initial flavor was spicy, light to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, slightly bitter and slightly sour; while the finish was moderately sweet, lightly bitter, spicy, and lightly sour with a long duration, especially on the spices. There was chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, chocolate syrup, spicy peppers, dark chocolate, cocoa, slight burnt malt, a little dark fruit, sausage spices, caramel and sour coffee. The medium to full body was leaning toward full. It was silky and then a bit dry with soft yet tingly carbonation that intensified when the spice started to effect the tongue. It also had a dry and spicy finish.

750 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. The pour is a nice dark black with a thick dark khaki/light brown head that falls down to a thinner film with a solid lace that's left behind. The aroma is really smokey. Wasn't anticipating this one. There is a decent milky dark chocolate nose with a smokiness and a decent pepper on the back end. This one smells like it could be a bit disappointing. The roast and chocolate highlight it. The flavor is smoke and fruit. Not a dark or hidden fruit, but a bright tropical fruit. There is a bit of chili on the back end that tie it together, but the smokiness is a huge turn off. I'm not feeling the smoke. The mouth feel is excellent with a beautiful soft carbonation and a lingeringly spicy chili mixed with smoke finish. It could've been so much better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

dionysus (1485) - Arizona, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Pour thanks to daknole! Deep brown/black with an intense beige head. Mikkeller makes such attractive beers. Aroma is heavy with dark chocolate, espresso, and a nice underlying spice. Flavor shows the same with additional roast malt, light smoke, and the chipotle spice definately makes itself known. Overall body is full, viscous, and finishes with a dry bitterness and spicy heat. Mmmm.

DocJitsu (1484) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2013
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.

beernbourbon (1452) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 6, 2010
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.

Rich, dark, and roasty with a hint of smoky spice hinting at chipotle peppers. Pretty awesome.

Hair6a11 (1442) - Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle; Pour is murky brown with a two finger, fine bubbled dark khaki head in this glass - it has a nice feeling from the appearance perspective. The nose is caramel and cocoa bean, with some grass and light spicing present. The flavor profile has a medium mouthfeel initial, modest sweetness. It has a robust center, moreso than expected for something in the 6.66% range, as its called. It finishes with mild bitterness, chocolate bean and roast, moving to more grass and a touch of red chili pepper, but quite modest as far as heat is concerned. Anyway - a nice porter

Linnet (1442) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2011
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. Mouthfeel: Average. Total: I liked it a lot.

deekyn (1441) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 26, 2012
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
