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.

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.

Pitch black color, big brown head. Full body, soft carbonation. Aroma of hops, roast and chipotle sauce. Very silky texture. Taste is roasty, chipotle sauce, coffee, chocolate. Medium sweet, light bitter taste. Some mildly hot spiciness in finish. Excellent stuff.

Pour thanks to daknole! Deep brown/black with an intense beige head. Mikkeller makes such attractive beers. Aroma is heavy with dark chocolate, espresso, and a nice underlying spice. Flavor shows the same with additional roast malt, light smoke, and the chipotle spice definately makes itself known. Overall body is full, viscous, and finishes with a dry bitterness and spicy heat. Mmmm.

Bottle 750ml at Henrik Øl & Vinstove i Bergen. Shared with friends. Pours dark black with little head. Smells of chocolate, tar and coffee. Tastes somewhat the same but adds a kick from the chili. Mikkeller does it again. A king among porters.

750 ml bottle of awesomeness. Poured a pitch black body underneath a large dense dark brown head. Aroma is super complex with fresh green peppers dominating along with honey, molasseses, dark chocolate, artisinal crusty breads dipped in olive oil, slight medicne. The body starts off medium but builds to a full creaminess, the heat however is what sets this apart. The heat builds and builds towards the ending and then lingers and lingers and lingers. Flavors of pepper, lots of fresh spicey green peppers, chocolate pudding, more chocolate. This is just one great beer.
