Backlog rating. 50cl bottle from trade thanks to McNeill. It pours a clean brown color with a small tan head. Aroma is roasty and nutty, with notes of earth, coffee beans, light peppery vegetables, biscuit. Taste is roasty and lightly bitter with notes of toasted bread, earth, coffee beans, peppers, dried leaves. Finish is earthy, dry with some burn from the peppers. Overall, tasty porter with peppers not overdone

MrHangover (2765) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2014
Bottle, thnx to MannyGoldberg. Pours a pitch black beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma is rather dusty, spicey, touch of caramel and roasted coffee. Pepper is defintely noticeable in the aroma. Flavor starts off sweet, roasty and chocolate. Pepper hits you in the final part of the flavor, light peppery burn that lingers on in the background. No real disturbing pepper flavors, just a nice subtle hint that it’s there. Thin, slightly watery body, low carbonation level, but overal a nice, decent beer with a nice balance between pepper and porter. Nice one!

"Chipotle Porter" bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This is an extremely dark brown beer with ruby red highlights. It has chocolate and smoked flavours, coffee notes followed by a spicy warming chilli finish. Excellent!

Keg at Pelt Trader, Cannon Street, London. A dark brown/black coloured pour with a thin beige head on top. Chocolate, spice, smokey aroma. Tastes of spice, some chocolate, slightly smokey with a nice amount of chipotle/chilli at the end. Nice porter from the excellent Tempest.

jamestulloch (1576) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle from The Beerhive. Black body with a thin beige head. Light lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, wood smoke and orange. Flavour of chili pepper, espresso and chocolate. Thin body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation fizz. My spice tolerance with curry is pretty high, but not so with beer, seemingly. Too harsh and spicy for my liking.

Craft Clerkenwell. Cask. Another spiced porter - great! Opaque black - brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Light fine carbonation. Light touch of dark chocolate, a bit weak. Light tang. Whisper of dark fruits. Chilli burn starts light but goes well in to the aftertaste. Semi dry finish. Okay.

500ml bottle from cornelius, shared with jeevan. Pours dark brown with a thick tan head. Aromas of roasty malt fruit and spice, smokiness. Taste is a touch green and spicy, more malt might have balanced it out, upping the booze a tad. Seems a bit thin and burny. That said, worth a try.

500ml bottle from The Beerhive. Gorgeous creamy tan head, a little lacing, dark black body. Nose of coffee, roasted nuts and a little chilli. Flavours of bitter chocolate, coffee, nuts then chilli burn comes through and dominates. Bitter chocolate returns on the aftertaste with lingering chilli flavour. Mouthfeel is rich, pretty smooth with light carbonation. There's a ton of chilli in here, perhaps a bit too much but a bold beer from Tempest and I'm glad they made it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
