Bottle sample as "Mikkeller Barrel Aged Chipotle Porter"at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Ariel. Pours black, opaque, tan foam. Coffee, peanut butter and roast aroma, brilliant chili-chocolate taste, smooth, long aftertaste and full body. I love it. ads135 (5207) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 19, 2011
How many disparate flavors can you jam into one beer? Smoke, spice, chocolately sweetness, hoppy bitterness; this beer has them all and somehow manages to establish its own voice. A decent one at that. BBF, 2011. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle @ BBF2011. Black pour, thin tan head. Aroma is roasty, bourbon, leather and vanilla. Flavor is bitter roasted bourbon and peat with a very nice spicy afterbite. Very nice. jesperhammer (5017) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2011
09-NOV-2011, bottle @home, from "Fish & Beer".
High lasting fluffy head on black body.
Nose is alcohol, fruits (chili?), roasted or even burned malts and then whisky. Fantastic:) Taste is even more of the same. The malts are stronger here with chocolate and coffee. Chili kicks in, as always with a fair amount and enough to be felt and tasted.
Ends hoppy bitter with a long whisky/chili afterburner. Fantastic effort. canuck_j (80) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2012
Aroma big fruit cake nose with a wide variety of smells including molasses and lemons and dates
APPEARANCE Midnight dark with a big chocolate head and great lacing
TASTE: Big roast and chocolate malts with dates and plums and molasses in the finish absolutely delicious, marvelous Scotch finish and a almost cloying sweetness to be balanced off by hops- would cure malaria I’m sure.
PALATE as big and thick as a beer can be with delectable hops right at the end pinching things up a bit
OVERALL absolutely superb beer with now known reason not to have another

Bottle. Pour is pretty much black with a thin brown head. Aroma is fruity, coffee roasted malt, light vanilla, light smoke, and a touch of milk chocolate. Really nice aroma. Flavor is smooth chocolate malt, light fruitiness, faint coffee notes, and a long milk chocolate finish with a hint of smoke and a very light chili burn at the end.

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 there’s 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 it’s not close to being overpowering at all. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s a bit creamy and coating, and has moderate, soft carbonation. It certainly goes down easy enough. I think it’s a pretty good brew. It’s pricey at $11.99 a bottle, but I’d probably buy it again at that price. andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 6, 2013
Pours an opaque black colour with a very fine light brown ring around the glass. Aromas of scotch, oak, chocolate, sweet maltiness. Flavours of chocolate, oak, lighter than the regular on the chipotle peppers, little coffee, smooth scotch flavour.
