fonefan (36036) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 30, 2010
Draught @ Orsted Olbar, Norre Farimagsgade 13, 1364 Copenhagen, Denmark.
Clear dark black color with a average to large, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, light brown head. Aroma is moderate to light heavy malty, roasted, burnt, coffee, iodine, smoke, moderate hoppy. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and heavy bitter with a long duration, smoked, chili - alcohol burn finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily and sticky, carbonation is soft to flat. IMO a bit tomuch chili burn, result is that the beers is not easy to drink ... [20100410]

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2010
Bottle from KAggie97, Cowboy from Hell.
Pours a thick, 10/40 black with a hot chocolate brown head of dense foam. Nose is straight-up cocoa powder and chocolate with fresh coffee grounds in a hairspray solution. I’m not detecting any chipoltle at this point. As it warms, a slight note of black pepper and chipotle emerges. But if the label had not denoted the chipotle addition, the nose would not reveal it to even the most fervent sniffs. The flavor, on the other hand, is a subtle yet aggressive blend of black pepper, chipotle, chocolate, and a touch of coffee. The peppery presence gives the mouthfeel plenty of pop and a fair amount of heat. Overall, a decent beer but I can’t say I’d buy another, especially at the $12 price tag for a 750.

Dogbrick (8660) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2010 On draught (from a recyclable cardboard keg) at 33 Wine Shop & Tasting Bar in St. Louis. The beer is a dark brown color with a thick tan head that diminishes slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Savory aroma of chili peppers and roasted malt. Medium body with flavors of peppers, malt, coffee and some other spices in the background. The finish is spicy with a lingering smoky aftertaste. Interesting, above average beer all around.

BCTC 2010, ratebeer tent, my bottle. darker pour, roasted malt aroma with hints of the pepper heat. Flavor has pepper heat that builds up as you go. Chipotle smokeiness & heat build on the palate for awhile. Solid porter roastiness & flavor. Good beer

bleeng (1544) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Draft at the Anvil Houston 7/30/10. Black with a big tan head. Nose is chocolate with a light peppery aroma. Taste is very sharp and the peppers come out strong. Tangy and hot with some coffee flavors. Very dry. Body is medium and fluffy. Interesting but a glass was enough-a bomber needs to be shared.

750ml, labeled as Mikkeller Chipotle Porter for the American market. Best by date 02/25/2013, consumed in September 2010. The body is absolutely pitch black, shower far more dense and abyss-like than a sub 7% beer normally would. A thick, puffy head of dark mocha-brown foam deflates like a soufflé, settling in as a thin but lasting, frothy blanket. Torn and tattered tissue sheets of lacing mark the glass well. It’s really quite a beautiful looking beer. The aroma is based in dark, bittersweet chocolate and darkly roasted caramel, with a touch of black strap molasses and a hint of sweet smoke. It’s not overtly peppery, but you do get some rustic, smoked jalapeno and adobo notes in the background. Flavors are a good deal more intense in many respects. First off, the chocolate element tells a tale of two extremes, showing bitter, dark notes and fluffy, espresso-laced cake notes simultaneously. Burnt caramel sugars add further sweetness, as does a bit of creamy lactose. Then there’s the pepper, which is initially soft and smoky, quickly building to more of a zesty burn with a touch of acridity. The palate is smooth and creamy up front, with plenty of body. Growing carbonation works to intensify the chili burn on the back of the throat, as Belgian yeast leads towards a slightly drying finish. This is a very interesting brew. Well done, I’d say, save for the fact that I can’t really drink too much of it. In small doses, I see some cool food pairings that could work here.

Bottle thanks to the Pittsburgh crew. I guess I was the only one who liked this! Pours a black color with a medium beige head. A spicy roasted nose. The flavor is as described; a rich hot bastard, huge spicy chillies, roasted malts, perhaps some light smoke. Very warm and aggressive. I liked it, but not an everyday brew. I thought the peppers added to a nice lively mouthfeel.
