4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33 bottle. Black color and the first actually brown head I have seen, leaving a good lacing. Aroma of coffee, meat, vegetables, paprica, pepper, and hot spices. Taste of coffee, dark malts, burnt caramel, and again some hot spices. Full body, creamy texture, and an almost flat carbonation. Finish is actually piquant, definitely malty, and full of caramel. Overall a good beer, the spiciness is unusual but it actually works unlike in some other brews I had.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bouteille meilleure avant le 19/06/18. Arômes de houblons américains, de chocolat et de piment chili. Goût de conifères, de poivre, de piment séché, de chocolat et de café avec des notes rôties. Corps moyen-léger avec un pétillement modéré et une texture quelque peu huileuse. Finale pimentée en crescendo. Bien facile à boire. Maudite belle recette.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2015-05-03. Black body with a nice brown head that fades. Aroma of dry dust roast, dark malt, and hints of cocoa. Whisper of peppers that you might not notice if you weren’t looking for it. Flavour starts similar, dry roast and dark malt, more cocoa character than in the aroma, bitter finish both from the roast and a bit of hop character I think. Mild spicy pepper is subtle at first but becomes cumulative leaving a tingle at the back of the throat for quite some time. Medium bodied palate, moderate to soft carbonation. The sharpness of the pepper makes it seem a touch thinner to me in a way I can’t quite put my finger on. Well done, but I find it a bit plain for an imperial stout without the chipotle character, and the chipotle is not entirely to my own tastes. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Chipotle and dark beer smell. Jet black with 3 finger brown head. Taste is chipotle, water, mocha more chocolate then coffee. Sticky lips. Good beer but watery. The chipotle is there and doesn’t make the beer any better or worse but chipotle works in beer. Cheer’s.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dry, easy drinking porter where the taste of chipotle perhaps is a bit too dominant in the long run.
