Johnsense (1177) - - OCT 25, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2015 black pour with a huge head. pepper, dark chocolate and black coffee dominate the nose. Fair bit of pepper and black coffee up front, roasted malt, dark chocolate in the background. heavier body. Much preferred to the barrel aged version and the pepper flavor is surprisingly restrained (considering the brewer).

Black with great brown head. Aroma is molasses, leather, espresso, chilli and some cherry. Rich palate. Aftertaste is chocolate, hot chilli, coffee and leather. Overall: impressive. Tastes like it’s 10%.

Poreter with chipotle. Brown to black, minimal head. Aroma has some peppers. Also in taste are peppers, coffee, choco, roasted. Reasonable dry finish. Reasonable bitterness, nice, bitterness maybe too high, to long lasting.

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.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Very dark with a tan head. Taste reminds me more of a stout than anything. Tons of roastiness with chocolate and coffee flavors. The bit of smokiness and spice from the peppers gives it personality, though it may be a bit too spicy for some. I’d say between Billy’s Chilies and Cave Creek (looking past the taste).

dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JAN 4, 2011
The bottle i bought was clearly labeled chipotle porter. Missed the mark for me...way too much peppers in it. Left my throat feeling over peppered, kinda of fried. I couldn’t drink too much of it. Starts as a thick viscous chipotle porter, but then the peppers take over and just crush it. Interesting, but not for me. I’ve had Stone’s smoked porter with peppers, and it’s great, this one is too intense for me.

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Taster at DBS. Full flavor of spicy chocolate/coffee malt. Flavor sticks around in the throat, like hot peppers in Mexican food. Had a distinct bitter flavor. Good beer, but bring the TUMS. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kronebryg (1124) - Sorgenfri, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2012
Draft at YNWA: Fine light brown head, lasting, colour is black. Light elegangt nose were the chili is only vaguely evident. A bit dissapointing as it is light with some chockolate pudding. Medium body and long burning taste. nice soft entry with some chockolate and bitternes and then BANG - the chili hits you. Weird and fine that I dont have to try it againe...

Bottle. Black color with a medium-sized dark brown head. Roasted malt in the aroma with notes of chocolate, dark fruits and some spiciness. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, bitterness and slight smokiness. Quite dry finish and nice burning aftertaste.
