(Draught at "la Capsule" Lille, 30/10/11) This one remind me coffee (roasty?) flavour in mouth, like a smoked sensation. It is a black, cloudy beer, with medium bitterness, soft carbonation, and creamy in mouth, Really spicy and long finish, youíd better keep this beer for the final taste if you want to taste another ones.

330ml brown bottle. Near black pour, big medium brown head with a creamy makeup. Good lacing. Nose has chocolate/cocoa with a faint spice. Taste has chcoolate, earth, coffee, and cocoa beans up front. Big pepper heat emerges midway through. A little late roasty bitterness. Pepper heat sticks in the throat, coats the lips and builds with each sip. Medium bodied, average carbonation level. Seems to be a nice base porter under the chipotle. Decent beer if you donít mind the burn.

tiong (4504) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 21, 2012
330ml bottle from Drink Shop, Tallinn

Pours pitch black with a small light brown head. Aroma is roasty and spicy with notes of chocolate, coffee and chili. Taste is slightly roasty and quite spicy with some chili notes, chocolate and coffee. Finish is roasty and warming with chili notes. Probably the most warming of the chili beers Iíve tasted, but the chili notes are still quite well balanced.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours black with a creamy beige head. The nose has chili peppers, chocolate, vanilla and light smoke. The flavor opens with chocolate, light smoke, chili peppers, and a touch of ash. The chili peppers become stronger with each taste. Quite a bit going at 6.6Č.

Black colour, beige head. The chilli taste blends in well with the stout, and is not overwhelming. One of the best chilli beers Iíve had.

jcr (2286) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Draft. Deep brown/black body with a deep tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, hop leafs, wood with a hint of flowers. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter, though the bitterness does not linger into the finish or, rather, is overtaken by the chipotle pepper heat. Medium body, velvety texture and moderate carbonation. This is one rich porter with just the right amount of pepper hotness. Dry with tastes of chocolate, coffee, smoke.

brnandersen (2298) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2012
330 ml. bottle. Black with a creamy, dense tan head. Aroma with roasted malts, dark chocolate and a hint of smoke. Taste is slightly sweet (and chili burning!) with chilli and chocolate, roasted malts. Medium body, average carbonation and an oily texture. Finishes with chocolate and a nice chilli burn. This beer literally makes me sweat of the intense chilli burn. Well made, and my best spiced up beer so far!

Crompt (122) - York, South Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012 Looks like a thin stout when poured but the smell of this one is amazing. You can really smell the chipotle. Chipotle comes through in the taste and it is a little spicy. The heat gets better and better as you sip on it which is exactly what I would want from a beer brewed with chili peppers. Best chili pepper beer Iíve had.

hackobock (2037) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2012
On tap at Mikkeller Bar. Dark brown/black with a minimal head. Aroma not as smokey as expected, dark malts and chocolate dominates. Perfect amount of chilies, the heat from the chipotle increases with every sip without taking over. For stouts I prefer a heavier body so if this would have been an imperial stout I would have appreciated it much more.
