Refreshing taste with hints of coffee, chocolate, chili. A flavor that is most similar to moist air the day after rain and very refreshing. Strong smoky aftertaste.

NIce brown medium head. Aroma of coffee, spices, liquorice and burned grass. Taste of chocolate, espresso, wood, chili, pepper and smoke. This beer feels like a full bodied high ABV Imperial Stout at only 6,6%. Amazing work Mikkeller.

Pours black, thick tan head which stays for a long time. slow lacing, aroma of dark bitter chocolate, caramel, coffee, roasted malt, cocoa and subtle smokiness. smooth texture, similar characters on the palate with more smoke and dry chilli spice on the finish. A perfect beer. Mind blowing.

I hate to say it, bc I have loved every Mikkeller beer I’ve ever had, but this beer sucks. It’s not the chipotle, it’s not the barrel aging, it just tastes like a bad recipe, and I couldn’t quite finish the bottle. It was well packaged, presented cold, well carbonated, and just foul tasting, very vegetal, and no chipotle notes at all. Not sure where it went wrong, but it’s sooo bad.

Black with tan head, strong aromas of coffee and liquorice. Strong taste of coffee with hits of chilling as well as a ginger like heat. Taste lingers for a long time.

Pours black with a thick, creamy, mocha colored head.
Nose of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts - as expected. Very pleasant.
Medium body, moderately carbonated. At first it feels a little watery, but the aftertaste packs a punch, dominated by bitterness and a pepper "burn".
Flavor has coffee, roasted malts, chocolate a little peat, and as the initial flavor wears off, the presence of pepper is clear on the tongue.
Different, complex, hot.. I think I like it!?

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma- huge roasty, smoky, bit of dark chocolate
Apperance-pouring very dark with brown head, very sexy
Taste-smoky, chili chocolaty flavour coming through. spiciness & bitterness grow in the middle of the journey. slight spicy flavour stays behind and builds up as I drink
Palate-medium body, mellow, creamy
Overall, this is amazing! definitely I’ll be drinking this in front of fire place.

Bottle from Bishop Arms Umea. Pours dark with nice brown head. Smells of coffee, chocolate, smoked rain-deer meat and rye-bread. Taste of roasted malts, hops and spices. Quite bitter aftertaste with cocoa that stays on for a while.

Mikkeller does it again! Bottle labeled as Chipotle Porter. Very dark pour with the thick mouthfeel of a stout. Great lacing and nice aroma with just a hint of spice. Taste is amazing; combines a category-best porter profile with some heat that builds as the beer warms, but does not overwhelm the palate. Worth seeking out.
