Black beer with a brown head. Oily cocoa aroma, tar, licorice, sweetish viol, smoky notes, spicy, peppery. Roasted soot flavor, really bitter and spicy. Bitter dry spicy finish.

20110224750ml bottle from State Line. Near black with lasting, tight, brown head. Aroma is weirdly vinyl and burning clutch with some airplane glue and floral orange rind. WTF? But on the palate it explodes with incredible and very enjoyable flavor, completely unexpected, completely welcome. Right off the bat it’s mildly smoky, a bit acidic with its roast, and lightly peppery, but within a few minutes the chipotle really comes to the fore with a great, "fresh", obvious chipotle influence. I mean, there would be no guessing what the adjunct was if you were given this blind. Solidly done and very enjoyable.

tgncc (2740) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Tasting at Paul’s place. The aroma is chocolate, roasty, coffee, spicy. The appearance is a red/brown, opaque, small light brown head. The flavor is smoky, spicy, chocolate, roasty. The finish is fiery chipotle (this is where the chipotle finally shows up.) Good.

enjoyed during 2011 RBWG pours brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is smoke, caramel, vegetal notes. Flavor is carmale malt sweetness with a nice peppery finish and chilli pepper flavor.

Nickls (1809) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - APR 25, 2011
Bottle. Very dark black and a darker tan head. Roasty and earthy, bit of chocolate in the aroma. Chocolate is the clear flavor at first, bit of heat from the chilis at the back of the palate/throat. Pasture-like earthy flavor as well. Thicker body and warming. OK, but not amazing.

Elwood (3009) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours damn near black with a dense tan head. The nose is peaty with notes of antiseptic, smoke, and peppers. The flavor starts on the peaty and antiseptic side, but quickly moves to dark chocolate, smoke, and chipotles. There is a nice warming sensation on the tongue, but it’s not overly spicy. Rich in body with lower carbonation leading to a medium to long roasty and spicy finish. Definitely a different brew and well made at that. I’m glad I had it, but I see it more as a novelty.

italarican (1470) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle generously shared at the RBSG grand tasting. Labeled as Chipotle Porter. Pours a dark chocolate brown. Aroma is musty with notes of dark chocolate. Flavor is unsweetened cocoa with some chalk. Roasted malt in the finish. Fairly good, but I got no pepper whatsoever.

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - AUG 27, 2011
Tap @ Mikkeller. Aroma is very roasted, ashy, dark chocolate, liquorice, coffee and a fruity hint of chili. The roasted notes play well together. Taste has the roasted elements of the nose, charcoal and coffee, sweet liquorice, the chili is subtle at first, but as you drink it, it becomes very, very hot, too hot for me. But overall a very nice beer.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2011
750ml Bottle: Aroma of roasting, malt, light chocolate, and a hint of chili. Poured black in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, rocky, brown head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Opaque. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, and lightly spicy. Tastes of malt, roast, chocolate, light chilies, and slight coffee. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malt, roast, light chocolate, and spicy chile finish.

(bottle) Thanks to Stoutragious. The chipotle comes through with ample smoke and pepper flavors. The long after burn deep in the throat. Thin palate. Very Unique.
