Bottle generously shared at the RBSG grand tasting. Labeled as Chipotle Porter. Pours a dark chocolate brown. Aroma is musty with notes of dark chocolate. Flavor is unsweetened cocoa with some chalk. Roasted malt in the finish. Fairly good, but I got no pepper whatsoever.

750mL "Chipotle Porter" bottle. A jet-black pour with a thick & creamy mocha head that leaves rings of lacing behind. A rich aroma that features lots of smoke, chili peppers, BBQ, cocoa powder, caramel, dark chocolate, vanilla, and some grapefruity hoppiness in the background. Medium to full-bodied and silky smooth on the way down. The taste is moderately sweet upfront with some chocolate, cocoa, and caramel. A fairly dry finish that lingers with a bit of grapefruitiness. Wow! A really authentic BIG chili pepper burn in the back of the throat that hangs around forever. The chipotle peppers actually overshadow the ample hoppiness. Some smokiness (BBQ and charcoal) is present throughout. Interesting and unique. I’ve had other beers brewed with chili peppers, but none have imparted the essence on this level. Another winner from Mikkeller.

Thanks to rateyourpoison for sharing! Pours deep brown near black with a huge creamy tan head aroma super cocoa roasted malt definite chipotle spice and smoke. Flavor starts super sweet chocolate and cocoa picking up more spice and a soft but definite chipotle spice. Finishes like pepper cocoa very rich. Med full body with a softish carbonation. Delicious well rounded complex beer

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.

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.

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.

W aromacie sporo czekolady, raczej słodszej, jest też karmel, trochę kawy zbożowej, muśnięcie suszonych owoców. W smaku pełne, gęste, wyraźna paloność (raczej stoutowa cecha) od samego początku po długi finisz. Gorzka czekolada w ogromnych ilościach, jest też kawa zbożowa. Papryczki są, objawiają się lekkim szczypaniem w język. Czyli mogłoby ich nie być, a byłoby równie dobrze. Pijalność niska, piwo wybitnie degustacyjne

Butelka, warka do 18/01/20. wysoka ciemna piana, niebrzydka, ciemno brazowe piwo. aromaty glownie czekolada, i to urozmaicona, w sensie a la bombonierka, z marcepanem, karmelem, owocami kandyzowanymi i jakimis innymi tego typu nutami. do tego dochodzi nieco zywicznosci, ciut a la black ipa. w ustach niby jest analogia, ale faktycznie papryczki szybko przejmuja kontrole, w posmakach juz dominujac. niemalo ciala, niewielkie wysycenie, nieco popolowa konsystencja. klasa.

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

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.
