big bottle. Pours black with a big brown head. Nose is of chocolate and smoke. Taste starts off with chocolate and ash, then the chili peppers become more and more noticeable over time. Mouthfeel is medium with a dry and spicy finish. Very interesting.

Bottle @ 111 cafè Castellanza. Marrone scuro, impenetrabile, schiuma beige scurissima, fine e persistente. Aroma intenso, tostato, caffè, cacao amaro, frutta secca, (nocciola).oltre al classico odore da porter si percepisce un vegetale da verdura fresca appena tagliata. Gusto abboccato, cacao, caffè, liquirizia e toffee. Leggermente vegetale, peperone più che peperoncino. piccantezza solo accennata. Piacevolmente luppolata. Poco calda, poco carbonata, equilibrata ed armonica.

sudomorph (1080) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours black with a one finger, frothy, mocha head that sticks to the glass. Aroma has huge notes of milky chocolate, roasted malts, medium, piney/resiny hops, and hints of coffee. Really nice. Taste is balanced. Dark chocolate and roasted malts mixed with a bit of resin and, what I’m guessing, is the peppers. Not really a huge pepper taste or heat though. Bitter, semi coffee aftertaste with a touch of heat. Full body with a medium carbonation. Smooth and frothy in the mouth. Overall not bad. There are some nice flavours but there is something in the aftertaste that I’m not liking. Maybe it’s the peppers. Who knows.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 1, 2011
750 ml bottle, An opaque pitch black beer, with a large, frothy, creamy, mostly lasting brown head. The aroma is moderately malty. There are notes of roasted grains, chocolate, coffee, caramel, chili/pepper. The flavour is moderately sweet, lightly sour, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety yexture, lively carbonation, very long finish, with medium to heavy bitterness, lightly alcoholic. Wow, the chili is really evident when you’re swallowing and leaves a burn in the throat. Apart this, exciting appearence, maybe not complex, bur very nice aroma and original. One of the best Mikkelelr stuff. Also warming like a 10% winter beer.

mixmasterob (1050) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 28, 2010
750 from Greens. Beautiful black pour with a thick dark brown head. Decent lacing and retention. Aroma was creamy milk chocolate, smoke and a decent chipotle presence. Flavors were super smoky, light cocoa with a long lingering peppery finish. Light heat. Creamy mouthfeel, light carbonation. A nicely done chipotle brew.

TheHopster (1041) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2011
(bottle) Thanks to Stoutragious. The chipotle comes through with ample smoke and pepper flavors. The long after burn deep in the throat. Thin palate. Very Unique.

Freaky_tiki (1035) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
Pours the colour of my darkest hours into the glass with a deep brown cap. Tastes deep stout with rich mocha meets smokey chipotle. Not buying some of the complaints in the reviews below me. This is a serious brew where a solid stout swirls in a funky Mikes Davis style bitch’s brew of chili heat. Recommended (if you like chili peppers).

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2010
Pours black with a good sized and long lasting brown head. As dark as most imperial stouts to be honest, lacing like an IPA. Aroma is very intense with chocolate, fudge, earth, pepper, smoke, jalapenos, espresso. The combo really works for once! Flavor follow suit with plenty of fudge, chocolate and espresso malt accompanied by tangy jalapeno-esque flavor, smoke, and a briny sort of spice. Some leaves and dirt. Finishes really spicy and hot from the peppers, but the flavor is phenomenal. Dark chocolate mixes with smoked pepper astringency and heat and the mix is astounding. Finally, the aftertaste exhibits dry toasty bittereness. Medium-full bodied very creamy and fluffy mouthfeel. Points off for the excessive heat from the spice, but otherwise this is without a doubt the finest example of spiciness I’ve tasted in a beer.
