Black with a large and frothy mocca coloured head. Aroma is roasty and raw with only slightly chili at first but opens up and mellows as it sits and warms a bit to reveal chocolate and a whole lot more chili. Some hops make themselves noticed in the taste, followed by chocolate in the middle before the chili onslaught begins. There are loads of chili, both flavour and heat. This stuff is hot for sure!

From a bottle. Very subtle chipotle flavor and not heat to speak of, but as a straight porter this is great. On the round and sweet side, very full flavor. A bit pricey, but this is great.

neongolden (560) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2014
(330ml bottle from LCBO) Pours extremely dark brown with a moderate, fairly dense brown head. Aroma of dark and roasted malts, roast is medium, coffee and chocolate cake notes, a little smoke and chipotle heat as an undertone. On the palate, slightly sweet dark malt core, with a dark fruitiness, black coffee, moderate to high roast, a little coffee, smoky, chipotle flavor and moderate heat. The beer is quite dry from the middle on, heat from chipotles prominent and drying, some flavor and smoke too, dry roast bitterness supports that character. Finishes with a soft lingering burn from the peppers in the mouth and on the lips. Moderate body with moderate carb. Definitely a chili beer, this, but it’s a well balanced one with the porter body being just robust enough. I liked the way the nose conveyed chipotles without heat, and the palate had that nice heat in the mouth without burning the throat or stomach. Recommended brew.

330 mL bottle. Black with a khaki head that holds well. Roasty malt and chile pepper on the nose combining together in a smoky pimenton-esque fashion. Light chile heat with a definitive tobacco smoke earth tone, roasted peppers, caramel sweetness, coffee, cinnamon and chocolate. Moderate plus body with similar carbonation. Lightly sweet but balanced with load of roast. Subtle and nuanced, enjoyed way more than I anticipated.

ABS (554) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2013
Almost black. Very brown head. Malt, burnt coffee and dark chocolate nose. Chili, chili, roasted coffee, dark chocolate and malt aroma. Sweet and some bitterness. Burning mouth feel - I like spicy food, and would like my indian a tad hotter, but this one has a mild bite. Cool gimmick, but weird beer. Hehe

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Bottle from Belmont Station. Deep brown-black pour with a short brown head leaving minimal lace. Nose is chocolate with a hint of spice. Medium-heavy body and moderate carbonation. Baking chocolate, black cherry, oak and dark roast. Finish is more bitter chocolate, oak, charcoal and some spicy peppers, but I couldn’t swear they were Chipotle. Really liked this one, as I do most of the Mikkeller brews.

0,33L bottle. Wow!!! Very cool black motor oil color with cappucino hat. Nice. Wow...Sharp :) Vanilla caramel aroma. Bitter ginger and sharp chilli taste with little citrus fruits and mild vanilla comes up. Really hot finish with nice caramel hop taste. a very interesting experience.

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Draft @Local Option’s ASS MAKEOVER event. Pours dark dark brown with some light at the edges, super tight light brown head, great retention. Aroma is smoke, salt, dry chili peppers, dark chocolate, espresso, brine, leather. Taste is green hops, intense "hot" spiciness in back of the throat, smoke, espresso, burn, burnt wood, dry chili, chocolate, leather. Body is full, creamy, low carbonation, very dry spicy/hot finish with tons of leather. Overall, uniqe and delcious; my first "hot" beer.

paco (527) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 19, 2012
Bottle. Thanks Kyle!! Pours nearly solid black with a half finger mocha head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate upfront. Lots of cigarette aromas and smoke. Some spice, molasses and oatmeal. Initial flavor is completely different from the aroma. I get chalk and chili pepper immediately. Cigarette like finish with hints of dark chocolate. Plenty of heat, but not too much. Chalky mouth feel, medium body.

Kosmokrator (517) - ITALY - MAR 17, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2014 Nera ed oleosa con un massiccio cappello di schiuma marrone. Aroma cioccolatoso e caffettoso molto intenso che ricorda una torta, con un pizzico di tostato sul finale; gusto equilibrato ed amarognolo con note di caffè, cacao, malto e peperoncino. Corpo medio, effervescenza debole, struttura parzialmente liquorosa, ed è "piccante" a tutti gli effetti: punge piacevolmente sul palato, sulla lingua e sulle labbra, una delizia!
