maledictum (609) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JAN 3, 2012
Black colour, small brown head. Aroma is sweet plum, sugar, some honey, roast and quite spicy. Flavour is roasted malts, some alcohol, spices and quite burning in the finish.

berlinoise2go (604) - NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Pours an impressive inch-thick dark beige head with good retention that leaves a nice lacing pattern - i.e. the looks of an imperial stout of twice the ABV. Pitch black colour. Aroma of sugary roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, licorice and a slightly vegetal element akin to raw coffee beans. Medium body, soft carbonation, rich mouthfeel, again reminiscent of stronger stouts. Dry malty, woody taste with a prominent but pleasant chili heat - ’medium hot’, I guess. This is balanced by some sweetness and a little acidity that is amplified by the chili. Mildly bitter coffee-vegetal aftertaste with a lingering chili burn.

StoutHead (604) - DENMARK - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a nice dark brown head. Aroma of hard roasted malt, coffee and chipotle. Flavours are of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, spices - the usual stuff, but with the smoky taste of the chilies - followed by liquorice - in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is full and has a bitter (but good) finish. Very pleasant to drink - if you’re into spicy beers. I like it, but I wouldn’t want to drink it all the time.

rdixon77 (602) - Georgia, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Tasty spicy porter. Dark brown pour. Aroma of chili chocolate candy. Taste followed with nice coffee malts and lots of hear and burnt sugar. Smoky too. Awesome balance for all the flavor. Definitely was crisp with a kick in the mouth.

kopher (592) - New York, USA - SEP 15, 2011
bottle labeled Chipotle Porter, but otherwise looks similar. aroma is smoky but not overly so, with lots of roasted malt and coffee. i dont detect much pepper. some fresh earthy hops though, which is interesting. flavor is sweet heavy porter in front, slightly vegetal in back, with a solid smoky heat in the finish. a bit of burn that lasts in the throat. it pours a thick dark brown, opaque, small rocky dark tan head. heavy body for a 6.6% abv. i dont know, not bad but not my favorite. i think the spice would work better in something less heavy. dont think anyone could drink an entire bottle of this in one sitting...

Flaske fra Vinmonopolet. Svart farge, oljaktig viskositet, lavt karbonert, beige skumrand. Kaffe,lakris, chili,rřyk, chipotle, krydder,brent malt, tjćre. veldig god, men ikke noe for en nybegynner

swanmann (584) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 25, 2011
It pours DARK chocolate brown with fluffy tan-orange head. Smokey aromas chocolate, barbecue and alcohol. Nice flavors of mocha and chili. It’s full bodied, a little slick and moderately carbed. The burn sticks in your throat so be ready. DELICIOUS

Bricks (581) - Delaware, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Dark in appearance, with a strange hue in the head -- interesting. Nice smokey/pepper test that comes back to bite you with a spicy aftertaste. Not what a beer should taste like, but worth a try.

GMUcrew7 (576) - Mason, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Dark black pour with a reddish/brown head. Sweet malty aroma with a chocolaty burst and a hint of the chili peppers. Initial burst of flavor is like a delicious standard porter but the finish has a burst of spice that leaves a lingering tingle on the tongue and lips with flavors reminiscent of a mole sauce. Deep and flavorful with a full body and very warming, this is an impressive beer.
