3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours nice deep brown with moderate lacing. Nice smokey and maltiness on the nose. The chipotle is overpowering for my liking. It dominates the flavour and leaves a lingering spicy aftertaste. Likely better with a meal but not or me.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Black in color with a tan, frothy, bubbly head. Lacing holds very well on the side of the glass. Strong coffee and chocolate aromas. No hops pop out in the smell. Definite spicy kick hits the back of your throat instantly. Very smooth black coffee flavor with a chocolatey texture. A full-bodied beer that leaves your taste buds working overtime. Overall i think spice and a malty beer go very well together. This is the type of beer i am always looking for. YUMMY!!!!!

750ml bottle. Pours opaque black with a two finger cappuccino head with some huge bubbles and awesome lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with a little chipotle smoke. Bold roasted flavor with dark chocolate and smoke. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Excellent lingering pepper burn at the back if the throat and a touch on the lips. Terrific.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 375ml. A pitch black beer with a big brown creamy head. Aroma is of dark chocolate, nuts and lots of spices, especially chipotle and maybe even habanero. Taste is sour and has lots of spices. There is almost no carbonation and considerable astringency. Heavy smoked character. Aftertaste is strong and I could feel the chipotle very well. This is truly a spicy beer. Not for everyone, but definitely a great choice for those who like spicy flavors and are used to them.

750ml btl. Pours nice and inky dark with a super frothy deep tan head.A nice smokey aroma with a nice balance of roasted chocolate malt. You can almost feel some of that chipotle spice in your sinus straight from the aroma.The body is and thick with lots of roasted malt; but the obvious crown goes to the chipotle spice. It kicks in mildly and then peaks with some great spice in the back of the throat.As the bottle warmed the spice just intensified in a great way. The balance of chipotle and malt was so even and pleasant. This was one fantastic brew.
