Kita (1502) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l, shared with Hoppiness crew. Murky dark brown color with medium creamy light brown head and nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, dried fruits with some peppery hints. Taste starts with moderate sweet and rich roasted malt, follows by chocolate note and fruity acidity. When beer gets warmer chipotle chili peppers break loose and create warming and tingling spicy mouthfeel, while spiciness is still present in medium bitter aftertaste. Full body, syrupy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Above excellent...

DocLock (8601) - 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.

Gachupines (1091) - USA - AUG 22, 2012
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 (3858) - 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.

veceo (866) - CROATIA - AUG 15, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2014 Pitch black color, big brown head. Good retention. Medium to full body, soft to average carbonation. Aroma of hops, roast and chipotle sauce. Very silky and sticky texture. Taste is roasty, chipotle sauce, coffee, chocolate. Medium sweet, light bitter taste. Hot peppers are shy at first, but spiciness is slowly building up towards the end. Finish is long and spicy. Excellent stuff.

UrbanCaveman (167) - Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2014
12 oz bottle, poured into a snifter at approximately 50 degrees F. A: Pours an inky black with tinges of dark brown, forming an impressively thick dark tan head that leaves equally impressive lacing down the glass. S: Rich notes of dark chocolate and smoky roasted malt swirl out of the glass, mingled with some hints of spicy heat and dark fruits like cherry and plum. T: The dark roasted malt forms the backbone of the flavor, smoky and black, with a complex mixture of cocoa and light coffee whirling around the palate. There is spiciness present from the chipotle, but not overly pronounced - more a background singer, offering some harmonic support to the rest of the beer. Notes of cherry and plum come through as well. M: Heavy, sticky, this completely avoids the watery issues many porters have. O: An enjoyable experience. I don’t know if I’ll repeat it at the price point of a Mikkeller beer around here, when I can grab at least two bottles of Wulver for what this runs, but that takes nothing away from this beer.

Christopsy (137) - SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours pitch black with a huge tan head. Smells slightly sweet, smokey, and malty... maybe a hint of chocolate. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, a hint of smokeyness and a bit of coffee. Slight chili heat on the finish.
