[Bottle] shared by Armin. Thanks! Pours tarry black with a large head of big bubbles. Aroma is smoky, moderately roasty and ashy, and the pepper is in the background. Flavor is nicely roasty, perfect amount of pepper spiciness hiding behind the smoke. Finish is a nice lingering heat and roast.

Listigovers (904) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2014
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!

MotherBrother (898) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2012
Tap @ mikkeller bar. Pour black, with a small creamy tan head. Aroma is rather roasty, of oatmeal, roasted malts, slightly smokey, and a heavy dose of spicy chillies. - quite spicy!! Taste is a little sweet, with a little bit of roasted bitter and spicieness. Medium-full bodied, with a slightly flat carb.

Impressive beer. Frothy full bodied head with a rich viscous mouthfeel. Chocolate with a subtle spicy finish. A glass stainer.

Kolor: Czarny jak dym z rewolwera Strażnika z Texasu. W żadnym miejscu nie ma jakiegokolwiek prześwitu innego koloru. Piwo przy nalewaniu jest gęste jak olej silnikowy.
Piana: Ciemno beżowa, wpadająca w brąz, bardzo gęsta. Piana złożona jest z małych i średnich pęcherzyków powietrza. Bardzo dobry lacing z licznymi malunkami na krawędziach kielicha. Zapach: Zaraz po zrzuceniu kapselka do nozdrzy dostaje się solidna dawka gorzkiej i mlecznej czekolady. Następnie owocowa nuta od ciemnych owoców (jeżyny). Po chwili trochę paloności i lukrecja. Pikantna nuta chilli bardzo subtelna i poczułem ją dopiero za "nastym" razem. Po kliku niuchach przewinęła się woń prażonego słonecznika, znana bardziej ze stylu Black IPA. Smak: Po pierwszym przełknięciu : kremowa, słodka czekolada, kawa, leśne owoce (ponownie jeżyna i czarna jagoda). Czuć także ziarnistość i tak jak w aromacie prażony słonecznik. Papryczki Chipotle przychodzą na samym finiszu. Są bardzo wyraźne i fajnie drapią w gardło. Ich stężenie jest mocno zauważalne. Przez kilka miniut po każdym łyku czuć jeszcze w gardle ich obecność. Niemniej jednak jest to tak rozkoszne doznanie, że z przyjemnością sięga się po kolejny łyk. Na języku na dobre zadomowił się także karmel i szczypta toffi. Goryczka ciężka do zidentyfikowania przez obecność chilli. Wydaje się dość wysoka. Pijalność pomimo tej pikanterii zdumiewająco wysoka. Wysycenie: Niskie. Podsumowanie: To piwo jest jak narkotyk. Silnie uzależnia. Dodatek pikantnych papryczek chilli Chipotle spowodował, że piwo to stało się wręcz unikatowe. Fantastyczny gęsty, oleisty wywar o najczarniejszej barwie. Pikantność powinna odrzucać, a ona wręcz przeciwnie - przyciąga i człowiek z chęcią sięga po każdy kolejny łyk. Balans poszczególnych składowych idealnie współgra. Doskonałe!

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. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-02-2011

On tap at Pivni Rozmanitost. Pours potch black with lovely dark brown head. Aroma is roastiness, hops, coffee, hint of pear. Flavor is chili, malt, milk, hops, coffee. Long chili aftertaste makes it a bit unpleasant.

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

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. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-29-2010 14:26:51
