12.7 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. The head stays around a little while, and theres a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells like smoky whisky, dark chocolate, roasted malt, and a bit of chilies. It tastes like bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, smoky/peaty whisky, oak, and some light chilies. The chili flavor does get stronger as the beer warms up, but its not close to being overpowering at all. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, its a bit creamy and coating, and has moderate, soft carbonation. It certainly goes down easy enough. I think its a pretty good brew. Its pricey at $11.99 a bottle, but Id probably buy it again at that price.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Ariel. As "Mikkeller Barrel Aged Chipotle Porter". Black with a light brown head. Powerful burnt aroma of dark chocolate, whiskey and some spiciness with chili peppers notes. Sweet burnt flavor with dark chocolate, some chili peppers and a dry roasty finish with a bit of hot pepper feel. Full-bodied. Nice.

Good stuff that doesnt taste much different then the original. The barrel aging resulted in a light peaty smokyness and slight woody tones. Base beer is still great stuff with subtle pepper flavor and a great base porter.

This is ridiculously impressive. Got a new respect for Mikel and his borrowing of others equipment. The barrel aging doesnt overwhelm at all, it is a trifecta of balance between the chilis, the porter malts, and the barrel aging. NICE!

Massive Mikkeller pt.2. Dark pour, jet black with brown head. Big notes of bourbon and chili peppers here. Chocolate flavor is pretty heavy as well. A slow sipper but very enjoyable.

Pours a dark chocolate brown that appears pitch black and completely opaque in the glass with a 1.5 finger mocha head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of lacing left behind. Bold roasted malt aroma with a nice barrel presence that doesnt overpower the elements of the base beer. Some toasted oak and vanilla along with a sweet booze/whiskey presence. Underneath there is a slightly smokey, meaty dark malt presence with a strong dark chocolate character along with some oatmeal, toffee and chili powder. The chipotle presence is subtle in the nose allowing the other notes to come through. Slightly chewy medium body with a nice balance of barrel, whiskey, roasted malt and chili. Not quite as complex as the aroma suggests but there is a lot going on here. The Speyside whiskey is well integrated into the flavor with some sweet booze that gives off little heat. Theres also some dry, toasted oak that is complimented by a nice roasted malt presence. Slightly smokey with hints of bacon, toast, dark chocolate, caramel and toffee. There is a decent amount of sweetness from the whiskey and chocolate notes countering the dry/roasted character. The chipotle peppers are most prominent toward the back end of the palate but again, this flavor is well integrated into the flavor without overpowering everything. A subtle touch of peppery heat that goes really well with the silky chocolate, roasted malt and whiskey barrel flavors. Given Mikkellers reputation I was skeptical that this might turn into a whiskey or chili bomb but its surprisingly well balanced and complex. Considering all thats going on, its still pretty easy to drink, although the chipotle heat intensifies as it warms. My wife says it tastes like chlorine water.

Thanks to Armin for sharing - gusher - fizzy black pour - thin ring of lace - looks like cola - deeply chocolately aroma, slight roast, a hint of oaky tannins, but hardly any whiskey - flavor is semi tart and bittersweet up front - quite a bit of dry, peaty whiskey notes follow - high carbo - bittersweet finish - the spice comes in strong in the finish, complimenting the light alcohol - nice beer.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2013 January 2012. Bottle @ Brandons, courtesy of Arminjewell. Huge thanks! Gusher. Deep brown appearance with a big dark brown head. Dark chocolate, moderately smoky malty, very light chili, celery veggie, roasty aroma. Somewhat spicy chili, hugely roasty, chocolate malty, peat whiskey, smoky, light veggie flavor. Carbonated mouth feel.(3.3)

April 2013. Tried again aged 16 months later and honestly, its tasting really nice right now. Veggie notes are nearly nonexistent with some nice chili spiciness. Theres a large amount of Scotch along with chocolate and caramel. (3.9)

Gusher out of the bottle is dark brownish almost black with nice creamy tan head and it goes away fairly fast, but fairly nice looking. Aroma has notes of whiskey, toffee, caramel, hints of slight chili and pepper notes, touch of bakers chocolate and slight earthy notes, really nice smelling. Taste is a nice mix of dusty cocoa powder, hints of chipotle chili but goes away quickly into the slight peat and oaky whiskey, hints of coffee and roast, earth finishing fairly bitter.

Bottle via StateLine... The regular version of this was my favorite beer of 2010, so this led to high hopes for this beer. But.... when I opened it, it smelled like a homeless guy who drinks whisky all day.... Strait whiskey! Black in color, decent little head that faded quickly. Taste wise the whisky is not a prevalent as the nose... Nice tasty roasted malts, slight chocolate, but the peppers take a back seat to the whisky. The whisky adds a nice touch to it but I like the regular version better. Smooth creamy body which makes it very enjoyable to drink. Overall. Glad I got to try this beer, but I will stick to the non barrel-aged version. PS: I hope this is the right version.... my danish is a little on the weak side
