Scauca (490) - Lovere, - NOV 23, 2010
Pours black with a huge creamy lasting brown head. The aroma is strong roasted malt, with a distinctive smoky accent. Quite full bodied, with strong chocolate flavour and the bite of chili increasingly warming the mouth. Lovely thou a bit rough.

DSG (6489) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’s place. Thanks Stas & Vova. Black with a nice brown head. Strong aroma of roast and lots of chili peppers, somewhat vegetal, coffee and a bit of smoke. Roasty flavor with some sweetness, smoke, coffee, a bit of chocolate, some vegetal peppers and and mildly hot finish. Medium to full-bodied.

jamestulloch (1657) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle from Cornelius. Black body with a huge tan head. Great lacing. Aroma of chilli pepper and milk chocolate. Flavour of smooth roasted malt and a very light spice. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft fizz. Tasty, but less spicy and complex that I hoped.

Black colour with a large thick tan head that dissipates but leaves a small head that retains. Aroma - chipotle pepper comes through more like green pepper, dark dark chocolate, earthy, coffee, roasted malt. Great mouthfeel, the chipotle pepper just comes through on the finish. Slight tickle on my lip. Good balance of sweetness, slightly vegetal, some chocolate and expresso. Really good!

Black with great brown head. Aroma is molasses, leather, espresso, chilli and some cherry. Rich palate. Aftertaste is chocolate, hot chilli, coffee and leather. Overall: impressive. Tastes like it’s 10%.

Silvan7 (772) - Samarate, ITALY - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle @ 111 cafè Castellanza. Marrone scuro, impenetrabile, schiuma beige scurissima, fine e persistente. Aroma intenso, tostato, caffè, cacao amaro, frutta secca, (nocciola).oltre al classico odore da porter si percepisce un vegetale da verdura fresca appena tagliata. Gusto abboccato, cacao, caffè, liquirizia e toffee. Leggermente vegetale, peperone più che peperoncino. piccantezza solo accennata. Piacevolmente luppolata. Poco calda, poco carbonata, equilibrata ed armonica.

Moebbels (384) - FINLAND - JAN 22, 2015
A pitch black body with a thick, creamy brown head. Nose has rich aromas of cocoa beans, coffee and caramel. Taste is sweet with a slowly developing peppery hotness and a lingering bitter finish. Low carbonation and thick, creamy palate. Very well made and nicely balanced.

GregClow (2928) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle from LCBO. Dark almost-black body with umber highlights and a thin cap of dark tan foam. Leaves some seriously oily looking legs on the glass when swirled. Big aroma - charred malt, wet oak, dark chocolate, and deep smokiness. Smooth body, low carbonation. Nicely integrated flavours, with the big, malty porter doing a great job in supporting the smoky chili notes. Quite enjoyable.

pootzboy (1602) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle - pours black, opaque with a small dark cap - rich roasty-cocoa tones in the nose with a hint of spice and smokiness- flavour is a rich thick blend of roasty dark malts with bright hopping enhanced by a piquant sharpness - rich roasty finish with a spicy smoky end to it. I think the smoky chipotle ads to the porter and the use of thi spice was judicious and accurate to make it a great accompaniment to the palate. Top flight flavored porter
