3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(33 cl bottle) Black and opaque, viscous, with a medium-sized dark brown head. Looks heavy! Intense aroma of roasted malts, slightly smoky, very dark chocolate/cocoa, some licorice. But also herbs/piney notes. Warming, peppery finish. Medium to heavy bitterness, moderate sweetness. Full body, oily texture, a little sticky, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Very rich and intense. Quite interesting.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Peppery notes are interesting and meld well with the porter. Inferior to Mexas Ranger as its missing the other supporting flavors.

Bottle labeled as Chipotle Porter. Pours black with a large, brown head. Aroma of roasted malts and light chocolate with pepper notes towards the end. Roasted malt and chocolate flavors with chipotle and a little heat towards the end. Similar finish with a more spicy and lingering chipotle note.

Pours a rich deep umber color with a two finger khaki foam. The nose is roasty dark malts, light smokey chocolate and a touch of cinnamon spice. The palate follows the nose with rich roast chocolate that has an earthy mlight warming spice thats lowly heats up into a smokey peppery finish. Nice sipper that is best shared with a group but still highly drinkable and worth trying.

Bottle. Very good pour with a thick head. Rich aroma of smoke and chocolate. Luxurious body. Flavour is smoke, chocolaye, salt before the chilli rears it’s ugly head and ruins everthing. The chilli was too harsh and masked the other flavours. Would be a stunning beer if the chilli wasn’t being a dick.

Bottle. Pours balck with a brown head. Hops and dark malts in aroma. Notes of dark chocolate. Taste is hoppy at first, then malty (coffee and chocolate). The aftertaste is quite spectacular with notes of smoke, bitter dark chocolate and some chili. The chili is quite balanced and actually a "natural" part of the brew. One of the best chili brews iv’e had even if its a little too much of everything for being really drinkable.

Had this at BCTC after the fest, back at the campsite. Pours a hazed brown with a medium sized beige to tan head. Very faint peppers, soft smoke. Chocolate, toast and roast. Subtle chocolate and pepper. Not much heat. Nice.
