berlinoise2go (608) - 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.

Kolsvart med litet mörkbrunt skum. Doftar lite rökigt och mycket malt. Smaken är lite rökig och inslag av chiliheta! Ok öl!

swanmann (596) - 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

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...

Bricks (589) - 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.

kapusil (588) - HUNGARY - JUL 11, 2014
0.33l bottle. Black body, light brown head. Aroma of coffee, cocoa, chocolate, grilled pepper, smoke and floral hops. Taste of coffee, floral hops, hint of chili pepper and smoke. The chili pepper is definitely there in the taste but it’s not hot at all. Very nice beer.

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.

Niller (576) - Hammel, DENMARK - APR 6, 2013
Bottle from Voldby Koebmandsgaard. Pours very black with a large brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate and smoked dark malts. Taste is dark chocolate, smoked malts and some notes of coffee. Taste ends with the warming chili. The combination of chocolate, smoked malts and chili is perfect. Nice long finish of chocolate and chili. Nice tasty beer.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2011
Black with a large and frothy mocca coloured head. Aroma is roasty and raw with only slightly chili at first but opens up and mellows as it sits and warms a bit to reveal chocolate and a whole lot more chili. Some hops make themselves noticed in the taste, followed by chocolate in the middle before the chili onslaught begins. There are loads of chili, both flavour and heat. This stuff is hot for sure!

McWorta (572) - LUXEMBOURG - AUG 1, 2014
Black clear colour with a dark brown ruby reddish pillowy head. Aromas of roasted malts, some coffee notes, liquorice and faintly fruity hop note arise on the nose. The beer offers a lovely balanced softly carbonated light slick texture with flavours of roasted malt, coffee, liquorice and smoked chilli shining noticeably through. Medium-full bodied and rather complex. The finish is slick and lasting with clear chilli burns, though all harmonically balanced. You like chilli, you like this beer!
