UPDATED: APR 8, 2011 Pours dark brown/black with a frothy dark tan head. The aroma is very strong of peppers and might be called a little overbearing. Does not taste like your normal porter. Spiciness is prominent and flavorful while still having those favorable characteristics of a classic porter. Full-bodied and smooth, not too thick, and less than average carbonation. Finishes with a lasting spicy tingle.

750 ml. bottle- Pours pitch black with a nice creamy mocha tan head and spiderweb lacing, beautiful beer. The aroma is very chocolatey with a spiciness in the background, peppery. The flavor is peppery up front, followed by chocolate, then smoky peppers (chipotles) and wood, very interesting. There is a definite jalapeno burn, especially in the back of the throat, this is one of the most interesting beers I have had in a long time, very experimental. The body is thick like chocolate milk, carbonation is low, finish is long, and spicy. Overall I havenít had a beer that I was blown away like this in a long time, a winner for sure, or to quote Charlie Sheen "Winning". Loved it.

750 ml bottle into tulip. Pours midnight black with a large lacy dark tan head with awesome retention. Smells of campfire smoke, tobacco, leather, chipotle. Taste is bittersweet with a spicy finish. Spiciness lingers in the throat for a nice long time after the swallow. Carbonation is medium, mouthfeel is creamy, body is medium to full. AWESOME.

Pours a luscious sable just a whisker above black with a very thick and fluffy dark tan head that sticks around for a bit. Aroma has a strong overtone of semi-sweet chocolate as well as molasses and roast coffee notes and a hint of toffee. Flavor fills the mouth with chocolate, roast coffee and molasses tones plus nutty and toffee hints. The chilis add an interesting and unique zing to the full-bodied and fizzy flavor, making it unique among all beers that I have tried so far. A must for porter fans, if you donít mind a bit of pepper heat.

Velvet black pour with caramel head. Smokey and caramel with bitter chocolate and spice on the palate. A rich and warming beer with the chilli factor slowly building at the back of the throat and in the stomach.

Chipotle Porter bottle. Pours jet oily black with mocha tan head. Aroma is fantastic vanilla bean, chocolate, chipotle pepper and smoked wood. Taste is very complex chocolate, coffee, vanilla and chipotle pepper. The pepper gets stronger as it warms, but is always satisfying. Smooth and extremely well crafted.

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!!!!!

33 cl bottle. Pours black with a brown head. Spicy aroma with smoke, chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Wow! This is an excellent brew! Initial slightly chocolaty sweetness with coffee, roasted malt and hints of smoke. If you roll it around in your mouth and let it rest for a while before swallowing the chili will burn. Burn, baby, burn! Prickling and tingling sensation with increasing burning sensation. This is the real deal. Without a doubt the best chili beer Iíve tried. Delicious and well balanced. Medium to full bodied with a smooth an velvety mouthfeel. Love to roll it around and let the chili burn. This is the first time Iíve had a beer that I just canít stop rolling around in my mouth. Itís a good thing Iím at home and not in a bar. Amazing beer! Should probably be a 5.0er because I canít find any flaws. Nice and long burning sensation with a chocolaty chipotle aftertaste.
