   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2010
From a 12oz Bottle. Mostly transparent, dark, borderline black colored body with ruby hues and a finger of creamy tan head. Rich malt aroma of roast, molasses, and chocolate with some mild charred smoke notes. Light to moderate smoke levels, more on the ashy end of the spectrum than the bacon side. The pepper is very mild in the nose, suggesting more of a raw jalapeno quality than a chipotle character. Medium full bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a thick, velvety texture. Complex roast malt flavors of chocolate, molasses, and ashy smoke. A moderate minty hop bitterness helps balance the richness of the malt and works well with the roast bitterness. The chipotle character is rather restrained and adds only faint qualities to the flavor. The pepper comes through most noticeably long into the finish, creating a lingering spicy tickle after the alcohol warmth fades. The base beer is quite tasty and is easily the most interesting part of the beer. Happily, the smoke and pepper don’t overwhelm those flavors, but at the same time, they aren’t adding a tremendous amount of additional enjoyment either.

JPDIPSO (5045) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Very dark brown in color with a tall, lasting tan head. Toasted and roasted malt with a With a bit of green pepper in the background. A little more nose time, bring in some of the chipotle, but even it has a bit of “greenness” to it. Sweet pepper and roasted malt in the front. The malt sticks a little while and then releases to the every so slight bite of pepper. Hints of ash and white pepper in the remains. 3/10

12 ounce bottle thanks to Michael. Pours a very dark brown color with almost no head. A bi roast, cocoa, vanilla and light pepper nose. Rich dark fruit, smoke, the pepper provides more flavor than heat- which is good with me, cherry, cocoa, chocolate, milky, vanilla. A bit thin. This rounds out to be an excellent beer. The whole is almost dusty dry and fruity.

"the last porter i had w/chipotle peppers was a little much, so i was wondering about this going in, but it was done very very well. another courtesy trade w/pfoxyjohn...and another winner. the peppers were hidden at first but came out nicely as the beer warmed, without ever being overpowering. aroma of smoke, rich chocolate and peppers. very dark brew. big full body...almost oily. smooth and rich. dry and smoky flavor, sweet from the chocolate and malts, pepper in the finish. a tasty treat."

bartlebier (2536) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2014
(retrieved from 08/2013 Midwest jpg backlog). 12oz bottle bought & sampled in Milwaukee/WI Very mild and drinkable execution of a potentially wild recipe: dominant milk chocolate and mild caramel flavours, not getting all that much heat, nor smoke apart from a slight earthy edge that could be anything really and a prickly effervescence. Could tilt either way depending on mood, receptacle, atmospheric temperature, company, aging...

TXBadger (1887) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Pours a deep brown almost black with tan head. Smoke, pepper, cocoa, and coffee on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little heat from the peppers. Pretty interesting.

Very balanced porter with an excellently smoky aftertaste. This is a great dessert beer and it is a good example of the quality of the entire Brewers Gone Wild series.

Gription79 (2567) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, thanks to clownoisseur. The aroma is caramel maltiness, soft smoke. The flavor is chocolate, caramel sweetness, malty, hint its smoke. I do not get anything in the way of spicy peppers. Not bad.

monkeychugg55 (950) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Year old bottle. Brown pour, black body with a small ring of tan head. The aroma is stout-like...heavy roast, chocolate. As it warms it releases some smoke and chili pepper notes. There is also a touch of fig, but I think that might be attributed to oxidation. The flavor has all the same elements. It starts out rich and roasty, then the smoke flavor builds, and finally, it finishes more abrupt than expected with a nice lingering pepper flavor and heat. Full, rich mouthfeel, soft carbonation, and great flavor.

kkleu357 (561) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Pours very dark black, almost no head. Has a chocolaty chili smell. Nice robust flavor. Taste of smoked chocolate coffee. Not any spice from the chipolte, just smokeyness. Wish it didn’t have a twist top. This is a nice beer and should be better sealed.

Maltser85 (338) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - OCT 7, 2013
The beer pours black as night with a dark mocha one finger head. Small tight bubbles. The aroma is smoke forward. However there is a very present dark chocolate smell. The chocolate almost smells bitter. Definite hints of roast on the aroma. Mild carbonation on the front of the tongue. Hit with the smoke right away. Moves thinly across the palate. Maybe a hint of dark fruit mixed with a hop bitterness. That rolls into a decent dark bitter chocolate finish that beckons another sip. Maybe a slight hint of the pepper on the finish. Alright overall, body could have been bigger. No hint of the alcohol.
