3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(33 cl bottle) Black and opaque, viscous, with a medium-sized dark brown head. Looks heavy! Intense aroma of roasted malts, slightly smoky, very dark chocolate/cocoa, some licorice. But also herbs/piney notes. Warming, peppery finish. Medium to heavy bitterness, moderate sweetness. Full body, oily texture, a little sticky, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Very rich and intense. Quite interesting.

Wow this has a kick. Black as night and deep tan head w/ some of the most gorgeous lacing i seen i some time. Liquorice malt on the nose and then whoompf massive hit of choco chilli maltiness and a massiver chilli tail. This bottle has way more kick than the barrel aged version i had in BrewDog Shoreditch. A beast.

The color is spot on but there isnít much head. A lot of roasted notes and smoke in the aroma. The flavor is like youíd expect. A velvety smooth smoked porter with chile heat at the end. Itís a late heat that really lingers. Iíd put the heat on a level close to a mild jalapeno.Certainly not overpowering. And, since itís a porter, if you search for some bittersweet chocolate, youíll find it. The smoke comes out more as it warms.
Really pleased with my first chile beer and I want more!

Tap @ Cardinal. The first thing that hitís you when you drink this is: "WOW". and "wow" is how you best can explain this beer. Itís fantastic and itís one of the best beers iíve tasted so far. Itís a solid porter with notes of dark chocolate. After a while a subtle burn from the chilies begin to linger in the back of the throat. Itís a a pleasant burn. A great beer to experience!

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Aroma of chili and chocolate. Taste is similar. Also a little hint of tobacco. A little to much chipotle for my taste. This is one of mikkellers best beers.

Dark black pour, head was big and light brown. On the nose its chocolate and lots of chili. I get almost a spicy hop smell, probably just the peppers though. On the taste the heat hits fist then a smokey, roasted flavour that seems to stay around. Iím not a fan of smokey beers but overall great brew.
