Not a big fan of this derivation. I find the aroma and flavor too focussed on the smokiness of the peppers. I think a basic chile like mirasol adds a much nicer flavor

It's their, already excellent, smoked porter with just the right dose of chipotle flavor. A little bitter and "charred" in the finish.

Drank on tap at the Penalty Box in Scranton in a fancy glass. Pours a nice dark brown color with very little head. Nice porter aroma no hint of chiles. Tastes delicious smokey, with a slight hint of the chiles! Delicious brew!!

22oz bottle from BD Camden, London. It pours a deep dark brown color with medium beige head. Aroma is big on roasty notes, malts, wood, green peppers, cocoa powder, light vanilla. Taste has more astringent bitterness, green peppers, mocha, vanilla, wood and ashes. Medium to full bodied with good carbonation. Overall, interesting and tasty

APPEARANCE - looks really dark to start, but it’s surprisingly light when held to the light.
NOSE - initially chili pepper. Resolves to maltiness.
FLAVOR - As the beer warms the chili peppers really come through. Great finish warm or cold.
NOTES - perhaps the best chili pepper beer that I’ve tried.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mole aroma... Smoky chipotle and suggestions of chocolate. Deep brown color, small beige head. Malt syrup, slightly sweet up front, moves toward some chipotle pepper, smoke, and a touch of chocolate. Even, moderate chili heat in the back of the throat. Medium body. When frsh, this treatment of the Atone Smoked Porter was AMAZING. It?s still good, but the pepper is definitely fading fast both in flavor and heat. Arguably more drinkable now, but I really love chipotle and this was the beat one thus far.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ WWT IV, small sample. Slight hazy light brown color, short frothy head. Aroma has bit light toffee notes, bell pepper and chipotle, slight smoked. Bit sweet in taste, slight roast. Soft peppery finish. Base beer hardly recognizable and seems to be quite thin, which is not what I remember of it.
