COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For those crazy enough to think our smoked porter needed something more, we give you Chipotle Smoked Porter. In addition to the already bold character from the smoked malts, we bring the heat with a healthy dose of chipotle peppers to take this rich porter to the next level. Recommended pairing with a giant hunk of smoked meat and a big ass bon fire on a cold night.

hopscotch (9896) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle... Pours clear and brown with mahogany highlights and a tiny, fleeting, white head. The nose presents milk chocolate, smoked meat and brine - smells salty. Full-bodied with weak carbonation. The flavor is smoky and sweet with a rumor of salt. Nice chili flavor and warmth in the finish. Ultra-light cardboard element and a trace of salt lingers in the aftertaste. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

nuplastikk (4878) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Blind bottle courtesy of Madvike. Brown=black, porter-like color. Not much of a head, thin, oily. Sweet cherry rauch aroma, a touch of peppery sharpness. Almost has a cask feel. Delicate, mild cookie dough under smoky chocolate. A touch of fruity undercurrents. Very nice. Pepper comes out more and more.

HonkeyBra (3624) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2013
22 oz. bottle rating from notes. Black pour with thin, small, off-white head. Aroma of smoked meats, touches of chipotle, cold smoke and barbecue. Cocoa and chocolate notes as well. Flavor is rich, bitter cocoa notes, mild spice from the peppers, touches of umami. Full, oily bodied with soft carbonation. Finishes with a bit of heat towards the back of the throat. I would have liked more heat, but a fine beer nonetheless.

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2013
On tap @ Mikkeller Bar. This is a deep really dark ruby one with a small light islandy brown top. I just has some sushi, and that soy sauce ? this smells just like that! Really notable, and it has other nuances of licorice, grass, some sweetness and cocoa powder. Yeah it has a nice mild chili touch, but it’s not all that present until the aftertaste. It’s below average on the carbonation and the mouthfeel is light oily. Almost a bit watery at first, but you quickly realize that it’s not. Some gunpowder in the finish next to the light chili. Yeah, I can drink this again. No problem! 02.05.2013
