JDBaker11058 (1131) - Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2012
Appearance: deep near-black with a huge, rocky, creamy dark tan head that very slowly shrank to a thick cap and collar, with generous lace rings. Aroma: strong notes of chocolate, a whiff of coffee, growing notes of pine as it warms, and some black pepper. Taste: dark bitter chocolate, followed by roasty (almost burnt) coffee and pine, with black pepper spice. Finish: slowly rising (but low-burning) chipotle heat, with a chalky-dry mouth. Notes: Awesome. I’ve tried a handful of beers made with peppers (chipotles, acho chilis, etc) and this is by far the best and most nuanced. It’s really just a great porter with some nice chipotle notes that add depth, spice, and adventure without overpowering or dominating the backbone of the beer. Incredible palate as well: smooth and creamy, almost like liquid velvet, which really lets the flavors shine and the peppers sparkle. Bottled as Chipotle Porter, bottle from the Perfect Pour in Columbia, Maryland.

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2012
15 cl. draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft // pours black with a dark mocha head // smells like dark, seriously roasted malts, chilli, bitter chocolate & black coffee // initially the taste starts out with a heavy, bitter, strongly roasted layer of malts, cocoa, spices, light liquorish, black chocolate, the roast intensifies in the finish and you suddenly get the spicy burst, Thai chilli & chipotle, serious spiciness but enjoyable & the dark roast holds up, the beer fades & a brief enjoyable burns stays in your mouth, unbalanced balance // touch grainy roast body, substantial, between creamy & oily, going to soft carb. // more in your face than the BA version, wonderfully in your face & actually good beyond the burn unlike other chilli beers, I have besides the two Texas Ranger versions // very impressive stuff

Mikkeller Texas Ranger. 6,6 % chili stout. ( chipolte chili pris 33 kr. meget lækkert mørkt skum. meget mørk øl. Duft: meget fed i duften, kaffe, kakao, en smule grøn duft ved ikke om det kan være chilien. Smag: stor mundfulde. efter en meget skarp smag af brand malt. og en smule skarp smag af chokolade lige som når man spiser chokolde på 70 %. man smager ikke chilien de første 5 sek med der efter kommer den . en fin røgsmag er der også. meget kompleks øl. denne øl er perfekt

DocLock (7481) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2011
750 from Frank Smith’s. Pours..wow, this pour is thick, deep black with very little light through, and a 3-finger brown head that stays around longer than an unwanted house guest. Nose is huge black patent and choc malts, peppers, both black and red, and hops...huge hops. The nose is Alpha Klausy. Tastes rich, smooth, velvety, with a big choc syrup, cacao, and roasty black patent malt flavor, a lot of peppers, and a lot of hops. This one is very complex, very easy to drink, and the chipotle bolsters and accentuates the malt and hops. This one is delicious.

Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee with notes of chocolate. Flavor is intense, surprised this isn’t a stronger beer. Strong roasted coffee bitterness mellowed out with a sweet dark chocolate finish. Finish was fairly mild then there’s just a slight pepper bite in the finish. Smokey throughout and aftertaste is rich but not cloying. Impressive beer, well worth finding.

kidmartinek (3307) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 8, 2013
I live in Texas but the only place I could find this Danish-brewed beer was in Kuala Lumpur. It pours chalky brown with a 2 inch tan head just right. The nose is malty cocoa and chilli. The flavor is spicy chilli malt just right. This beer lets you know you have balls enough to drink it but doesn’t kick you in them. Nobody does a chilli beer better than this. Nuff said.

750mL "Chipotle Porter" bottle. A jet-black pour with a thick & creamy mocha head that leaves rings of lacing behind. A rich aroma that features lots of smoke, chili peppers, BBQ, cocoa powder, caramel, dark chocolate, vanilla, and some grapefruity hoppiness in the background. Medium to full-bodied and silky smooth on the way down. The taste is moderately sweet upfront with some chocolate, cocoa, and caramel. A fairly dry finish that lingers with a bit of grapefruitiness. Wow! A really authentic BIG chili pepper burn in the back of the throat that hangs around forever. The chipotle peppers actually overshadow the ample hoppiness. Some smokiness (BBQ and charcoal) is present throughout. Interesting and unique. I’ve had other beers brewed with chili peppers, but none have imparted the essence on this level. Another winner from Mikkeller.
