3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2015-05-03. Black body with a nice brown head that fades. Aroma of dry dust roast, dark malt, and hints of cocoa. Whisper of peppers that you might not notice if you weren’t looking for it. Flavour starts similar, dry roast and dark malt, more cocoa character than in the aroma, bitter finish both from the roast and a bit of hop character I think. Mild spicy pepper is subtle at first but becomes cumulative leaving a tingle at the back of the throat for quite some time. Medium bodied palate, moderate to soft carbonation. The sharpness of the pepper makes it seem a touch thinner to me in a way I can’t quite put my finger on. Well done, but I find it a bit plain for an imperial stout without the chipotle character, and the chipotle is not entirely to my own tastes. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto.

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.

Please consult your doctor before drinking this beer. May cause heartburn, A strong smell of burned toast, and fire in the back of your throat. Ask your doctor if chipotle porter is right for you today.

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.
