3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Pours black with a one finger, frothy, mocha head that sticks to the glass. Aroma has huge notes of milky chocolate, roasted malts, medium, piney/resiny hops, and hints of coffee. Really nice. Taste is balanced. Dark chocolate and roasted malts mixed with a bit of resin and, what I’m guessing, is the peppers. Not really a huge pepper taste or heat though. Bitter, semi coffee aftertaste with a touch of heat. Full body with a medium carbonation. Smooth and frothy in the mouth. Overall not bad. There are some nice flavours but there is something in the aftertaste that I’m not liking. Maybe it’s the peppers. Who knows.

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

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Su aroma es muy especiado, verdaderamente se nota el chili. En boca en pricipio es mas bien amarga y achocolatada. El chili se muestra mas al final, es más, conforme la bebes, más especiada y picante sabe. lo cual le da una progesividad bastante interesante. La verdad es que ha sido una experiencia muy grata y sorprendente. Se la recomendaria a cualquier amante de las porter/stout

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Very good pour with a thick head. Rich aroma of smoke and chocolate. Luxurious body. Flavour is smoke, chocolaye, salt before the chilli rears it’s ugly head and ruins everthing. The chilli was too harsh and masked the other flavours. Would be a stunning beer if the chilli wasn’t being a dick.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Pitch black body with a big fluffy mocha head slowly sink to a creamy film.
S - Chipotle comes out immediately along side semi sweet chocolate, coffee grinds, hints of anise, light hickory smoke, and chocolate liqueur.
T - A mix of dark and milk chocolate, with a steady presence of chipotle creating mild heat on the tongue and back of the throat. The pepper becomes more smokey towards the finish.
M - Silky and smooth feel, creamy carbonation, dry and warming finish.
This exceeded my expectations. Perfectly balanced flavors. Chipotle was not over or under used and melded perfectly with the big chocolate malts. I didn’t want the bottle to end. Picked it up out of state, wish I would have bought more than one.
