Bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost black body with a nice thick foamy light brown head that had nice retention. The nose is quite thick and deep, lots of chocolate and roasty notes with a nice undercurrent of smokiness and chipotle peppers. The flavor is pretty great, very chocolaty and rich up front, tastes like a straight up Porter, but the more you have the more the chipotle and smoke build on the finish. The level of heat and flavor from the pepper is just perfect, it doesnt taste like a gimmick beer, it really invokes thoughts of high quality chocolates with peppers in. Medium to full bodied with a great thick texture and perfect soft carbonation. Great beer. Excited to try the BA version.

paco (576) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 19, 2012
Bottle. Thanks Kyle!! Pours nearly solid black with a half finger mocha head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate upfront. Lots of cigarette aromas and smoke. Some spice, molasses and oatmeal. Initial flavor is completely different from the aroma. I get chalk and chili pepper immediately. Cigarette like finish with hints of dark chocolate. Plenty of heat, but not too much. Chalky mouth feel, medium body.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Had on tap at Mellow Mushroom in Johnson City, TN. Arrives almost pitch black with a thick dark tan head. Really good lacing and head retention. Coffee and dark chocolate are most evident in the aroma. There are some spices there too. The flavor is all dark chocolate and coffee up front with some peppery spice in the background. Pepper becomes more apparent towards the middle and finish as a moderate warmth builds in the back of the throat. Some smoke is there too. Overall this is an awesome beer. I dont think I have had a chili beer before that was this nicely balanced. The warmth is just right and the chili flavor doesnt overwhelm the rest of the beer. Really glad I got to try this one.

patricks110 (2456) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
The pour is a purely black body with a thick dark tan head. Tons of spotty lacing on the glass. The nose is heavily roasted with a definate spiced note and big dark coffee and woody notes. The middle has sweet roasty malt with a bit of a coffee note. The finish is dry and bittered lightly with some mild spice in the aftertaste. Overall, a bit thin, but an awesome porter.

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2012
Black beer with a nice holding light brown head. Decent mixture off malts, roasted coffee, sugar and a decent amount of spices. Dry and earthy alcoholic and spiced finish. Good, but misses something, a small sweetness boost maybe. Good peppery finish. 1111th rating

canuck_j (80) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
AROMA:Grainy malt with a plum- like fruitiness APPEARANCE: Opaque dark with a massive 2" dark tan head that doesnt go away and laces perfectly TASTE:Big whammy of chocolate malt, fruity plum and christmas cake flavours, and then the sneaking bite of the chipotles. wow this is some beer!! PALATE: full bodied and creamy, with good carbonation and a pleasant burning the finish from the peppers, complicated by the hop biiterness, this is one unique beer. OVERALL: I dont think I have had a beer quite like this, the closest being hot cholcolate shout by sherwood park liquor store contract brew in Edmonton. Very hot spicy porter, the combination being very pleasant and warming. This is a perfect apres ski beer IMHO!!

Pours black with a huge mocha head...nice retention and lacing! Aroma has chocolate and smoke...notable peppery hints. Flavor has roasty chocolate and significant smokiness...definite smoky chipotle flavor. Mouthfeel is medium/full and creamy with a smoky finish that has a pleasant heat.

Bin905beerbums (9) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 6, 2012 does not count
Out of all the Mikkeller arrivals this week this is by far the most supported and loved. Chipotle porter ROCKS!!!!! Any god fearing Ozzie who loves their chilli tim tams will find this beer right up their alley. The beer pours a picture perfect porter, dark, choclatey in colour with a rich coffee like head on top. Unsure what the balance was going to be like I had to try it straight away and found that the gas did not turn this into a spicy hot chocolate flabby and out of sync, O was I wrong... the suds were in balance with the smoothy choclatey mouthfeel and the chipotle was neither the prima donna or the second fiddle during the entire act. Harmonious construction, lingering spiciness and delicate balance... Hedonistic as this may be, this would rock out as a chicken marinade or like my Friday will be spent: Tim tam slamming a Texan..... YEE HAW!!!!

ROGUE (2205) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - MAR 6, 2012
750ml bottle. Poured a dark deep black with a thick fluffy two finger mocha head and some spotty sticky lacing. The aroma is chipotle peppers, roasted malt and some light smoke. The flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, smoke and spicy peppers. A light tingly burn lingers on the tongue through the finish and after. It is medium bodied, creamy and very smooth on the palate.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - MAR 5, 2012
A nice roasted malt flavor. There are some great coffee and chocolate flavors, along with a nice chipotle bite with very little heat. The finish has some lingering roasted bitterness and a bit of chipotle flavor.
