3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared this bottle with people in line at the CBS release. Poured from a 750ml into my Deschutes snifter.
A: Pours a dark brown with a nice khaki head and leaves a webbed lace down the glass.
S: Smells of green peppers, a little chocolate and a little malt bill. The pepper is dominated which I expected.
T: The taste blows the smell out of the water. A great smokiness is present first and foremost. The spice from the chipotle gives it a great kick and there is a green paper freshness that is great. There is a slight sweet chocolate on the backend that really rounds it out.
M: Refreshing and spicy, medium bodied with a nice carbonation.
O: The nose wasn’t too inviting but the taste more than made up for it. Very well balanced. The best pepper beer out there.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2014 Pitch black color, big brown head. Good retention. Medium to full body, soft to average carbonation. Aroma of hops, roast and chipotle sauce. Very silky and sticky texture. Taste is roasty, chipotle sauce, coffee, chocolate. Medium sweet, light bitter taste. Hot peppers are shy at first, but spiciness is slowly building up towards the end. Finish is long and spicy. Excellent stuff.

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.

Backlog. Not a fan of the spice beers and even less of a fan for chili-infused ales. Probably not Mikkels fault.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A- Body is a dark brown, nearly black hue. Pours with a 1-2 finger foamy tan head which has good retention and plenty of lacing is left behind in the glass.
S- Smell is big and asky-lots of chipolte, smoke, and roasted malt.
T- Flavor is full of chipolte-as it is the highlight of this brew- behind this is mild to moderate smoke and roasted malt. The chipolte intensifies for the finish and lingers on and on for a long time with an ominous spicy heat.
M- Carbonation is high and tingly. Body is medium weight and chalky.
D- This is a great beer overall-if you like a spicy brew- if you don’t you will hate this beer. Its not very complex overall but the smoke adds an interesting component to the spicy porter. The spiciness is big and the highlight. I like that the ABV is reasonable and it offers so much flavor.

Body is completely dark, huge tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, vanilla, hops, roasted malt, caramel. A bit smokey. Medium to full body, flat to soft carbonation. Finish is long coffee bitter and spicy, followed by a pleasant tingling; this is where chilli first appears. Just wonderful!

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.

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%.

Amara e di difficile bevuta.
