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 donít 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.

Lots of nice dark roasty and chocolaty flavors with a nice big spicy and smoky pepper flavor that dominates the finish. Lovely.

Pours pitch black with a beautiful dense dark brown head, huge aroma hits you immediately of chocolate and a slight dusty and peppery scent. Really nice head feeling in the mouth, very distinct feeling of the dense head on the roof of my mouth, interesting. Chili flavour is very evident, as well as lots of chocolate, very thick. Heavy in flavour, warming but not in an alcoholic way. Excellent and unique, as a chili-head I approve!

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2016 Pours black color, slightly haze, with stable creamy brown head. Visually low carbonation.
Aroma: moderate malt aroma, which takes on coffee, bittersweet chocolate, but it is almost overdominated by chilli peppers aroma. Thatís the reason, why hop aroma is so hard detectable.
Flavor: intense malt aroma, which takes on espresso coffee, bittersweet chocolate, slightly roasted, and supported with gentle burn of chilli peppers. In the background are hop flavors, which takes on stone fruits, pine and dark fruits.
Finish is slightly chilli pepperish burnt and lingers long in aftertaste.
Body is medium to high, texture is soft, carbonation is low.

@ACBF 2011. I like how the heat hits you end game, as the aftertaste starts to develop - not too much, but noticable. Nice.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Poured a rich black. Nose is very similar to the beer geek stout. Rich malty,chocolate and coffee. Iím going to guess and say that itís the base beer for this. The chipolte adds a nice spice note and cimpliments well. Pretty spicy too. If you like splicy porter this one youíll love.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml brown bottle. $12.99/Specs. Live Oak, TX. A very thick dark black beer with a huge cocoa color head. Looks nice and it looks like dessert. The aroma is sweet, a lot of chocolate, and just enough of pepper heat to be smokey. The taste is sweet, chocolate, smokey, and some bitterness. I cannot say I "taste" chipotle but I think it helps gives this beer its smokey quality. I know the lines get mixed between stout and porter but this is the most Imp. Stout like porter Iíve had as far as mouthfeel and thickness goes.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2015 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 caffŤ, cacao, malto e peperoncino. Corpo medio, effervescenza debole, struttura parzialmente liquorosa, ed Ť "piccante" a tutti gli effetti: punge piacevolmente sul palato, sulla lingua e sulle labbra, una delizia!
