Bottle. Black body with large smooth brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, smoke and hints of chilli. Taste is first chocolate with smoke and hints of caramel and some chilli.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep dark chocolate liquer aromas. Pours black in the glass. Nice lacing from the caramel colored head. Flavor profile of sweet dark cocoa, dried fruits, espresso and a slight peppery aftertaste. A few seconds after swallowing, i can detect the spicy notes from the chipotle. Overall, this is a very tasty brew. Glad I have access to more...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black colour, beige head. The chilli taste blends in well with the stout, and is not overwhelming. One of the best chilli beers I’ve had.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(on tap @ Café Langebro) Pours pitch black with a rich, toffee head that laces the glass. Aroma of smoke that is gradually complemented by vinous notes as the brew gains room temperature. Taste is very classical porter style with an absence of sweetness and dominance of the dark bitterness of hops and toasted malts. Notes of coffee, dark chocolate and a distinct, gently burning chili aftertaste. Creamy on the palate, full-bodied, softly carbonated and with a long, burning finish. Girlfriend says: "It tickles the tongue in the beginning."

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Excellent, dark pour for the style with a nearly black body and a full, dense, creamy, dark tan head which is very nearly fully lasting and leaves thick, frothy lace rings. The nose is smoky like the chipotle pepper (almost rauch-like), dark breads, burnt caramels, bakers’ chocolate, light chocolate malt (malt as in malt flavoring, not grain), faint chocolate cake, and a roasted coffee bean note in there as well. The flavor is different with less smoke and more roasted presence; similar chocolate malt notes, chocolate cake and Hershey’s chocolate syrup, light tones of smoky French roast coffee beans, and burnt caramels. The palate is medium to full, very dry but still round and silky, and soft to lively. The finish is very long, especially for a 6.6% beer with rich notes of burnt caramel and dark chocolate, dry restrained roast almost with a cedar-like quality, and ultimately the spiciness of the chipotles leaving a mild burn on the tongue, like a good chile or salsa. Very intriguing beer with all the notes of the pepper (smokiness in the nose, heat in the finish) but never even being more than a complementary note in the beer. Odd how you really got the smoky notes in the nose, not much in the beginning of flavor progression but all the heat on the tongue as the porter notes disappear. The pepper notes worked very well with the base beer adding a unique complexity instead of clashing or contrasting. Very likable beer, even for people who are not big chipotle pepper fans. Mikkeller does amazing work.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The pour is a very dark brown with a lingering head. The aroma is all porter, not much else. The taste is has the taste of peppers as soon as you take a drink. Lingers throughout, but not overly hot just a good spice. Quality beer and nailed what they were trying.
