crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Dark pour with a small tan head. Aroma of smoke, chocolate, and a hint of pepper. Flavor is far more subdued than I expected, but I was impressed with the balance of this brew, at least. A nice mix of chocolate, roasty bitterness and smoky chipotle. No real heat to speak of. Good brew, though I wouldn’t mind seeing a spiced up version in the future.

Finhead (1563) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2016
Deep brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has chocolate, mild coffee, and some spice. It has a smooth, medium body with average carbonation. The taste is roasted with a warm pepper finish.

mfhennig (276) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2016
You can smell the chipotle peppers right off the bat. Appearance is typical of imperial stouts and porters. This has a minimal head, but leaves lotsa lacing. This is quite smokey beer, aroma and flavor. Nice burn at the end. When I see these BGW 4 packs, I usually buy them they don’t disappoint. Solid beer!

McNeillR (2147) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 12, 2015
Soft brown, oily without much of a head - solidly opaque. Nose was oily, BBQ and soy but didn’t kick onto the initial taste. Neat and spicy throughout, very soft carbonation but thick and monstrous on the linger. Spicy enough, the roast and choc was more apparent as the heat faded on the finish. Linger was lean enough, back to the soy roastiness.
