crbolesta (10) - Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Color is thick, dark, uniform. Looks like motor oil (with this it’s a good thing!). Aroma is strong with coffee and unsweetened dark chocolate. Once it hits the palate is has a beautifully well-rounded smoky spiciness to it. Chipotle lingers throughout the chocolatey finish, which is fulfilling and robust while remaining smooth. Very little head, dark as night, and delicious.

Bottled:
A dry, easy drinking porter where the taste of chipotle perhaps is a bit too dominant in the long run.

huineman (71) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 29, 2015
Pours black and thick as tar. Dense tan head. Aroma brings loads of coffee and toast. Oily, very soft and creamy. Great balance between sour and bitter, very pleasant. Long, very long finish, with a fantastic spicy after-taste (that chipotle chili pepper). Great.

kevinator (1184) - The Colony, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2015
Nice roasted pepper aroma. Great dark color with foamy dark tan head. Full bodied and thick. Great blend of roasted malt, wood and just a hint of chipotle pepper. Some kick on the back end.

Sebilinz (800) - Linz, AUSTRIA - APR 15, 2015
Bottle. Black body with large smooth brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, smoke and hints of chilli. Taste is first chocolate with smoke and hints of caramel and some chilli. Very smooth and creamy mouth feel. Aftertaste is first sweet roasted malts balanced by some bitterness and later on it gets hot. This was the first beer with chilli I enjoyed a little bit.

bytemesis (4134) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 13, 2015
Bottle from LambicSender, 2012 vintage. Pours deep opaque black with a large creamy brown head, dissipates slowly leaving nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasty, a touch of wood smoke, chocolate, just a faint whiff of chili. Flavor is light plus sweet, light bitter, very light smoke. Roasty and chocolate, some ashtray, coffee grounds, chili pepper present but more from a burn than a lot of flavor. As you drink the pepper builds up to a pleasant lingering heat in the throat. Full body, quite creamy in the mouth. This is a solid porter. Not sure why that little bit of pepper burn slides this to an SHV, but whatever. Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition! Go Mikkeller.

GnarlyGnome (721) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Lots of nice dark roasty and chocolaty flavors with a nice big spicy and smoky pepper flavor that dominates the finish. Lovely.

BeerandBlues2 (10541) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle from Secret Santa Winter 2014. Pours opaque black with a medium, frothy tan head, medium retention with spare lacing. Aroma is roast, chocolate, and coffee malt, earthy hops, prunes and smoky chipotle peppers. Flavor is dark and lightly bitter roast malt, smoky chipotle peppers, dark fruits and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

PawelD (299) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAR 22, 2015
Butelka 0,33. W aromacie kawa, czekolada, lukrecja. Kolor pitch black, beżowa drobna piana, trochę się dziurawi ale zostaje do końca. Piwo bardzo rozgrzewające a jednocześnie wodniste, w smaku czekoladowe, minimalnie kawowe, pikantność papryczek na średnim poziomie, ale ładnie współgra z finiszem, delikatnie piekąc w podniebienie. Bardzo dobre i o dziwo pijalne mimo pikanterii.

Thick, chocolate smoke coffee ginger pepper spice. Sipping beer worth contemplating. The spiciness builds up over time.
