Black pour with brown head. Spicy, chocolate aroma with hints of chipotle. Dark roasted, smoky flavor with hints of chocolate and chipotle with a slight pepper warmth on the palate. 90 (885) - BELGIUM - JAN 27, 2017
Zelfde label als ’Texas Ranger’, op het label staat ’chipotle porter’. In aroma ruik je reeds de chili. De smaak is een fijne licht rokerige smaak door de chipotle; deze prikkelt ook effectief de achterkant van de tong en de keel. Zeer fijne ervaring. Dit gevoel zet zich door in de afdronk. Lijkt me ideaal met een chili con carne! pencheff (37) - Burgas, BULGARIA - JAN 14, 2017

Bottle. As "Chipotle Porter". Pours a very dark brown with medium brown head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, caramel, and alcohol. Didn’t taste the chipotle at first, but then it came to life. Leaves a very spicy note. Interesting and original beer. Mister_Li (1628) - GERMANY - DEC 20, 2016

14.12.2016 - Well made porter with a nice suitable smoke note and chili. Chili is not that agressive but decent spicey. Taste of roasted malts and some chocolate. Even some coffee. Same in aroma. Suitable name and lable tom10101 (6297) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2016
Bottle (330 ml) at home. As "Mikkeller Chipotle Porter". Dark brown - almost black with a medium brown head, good retention, leaving plenty of lacing. Aroma is a well balanced mix of roasted malts, chili peppers, chocolate and mild fruitiness. Taste is also balanced - though a little less because the chili peppers take more place, but it’s not overpowering and give a nice little kick - with chocolate, roasted malts, vegetal/green pepper notes but surprisingly it blends well with the profile, mild caramel notes and light fruitiness. Medium body. Moderate to medium carbonation. A bit oily mouthfeel. Warming but never burning chili peppers finish with lingering but not overpowering roasted and chocolatey notes. With this kind of adjunct Porter, the key is in the balance and it’s impressively achieved here. I had no problem drinking half of the bottle and I could see myself having this again in the future which - at least for me - tells a lot when the beer is question is a Porter w/ chili peppers. Flavorful and enjoyable. vipinvelp (4570) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2016
Dark, dark, black. Dark brown slowly settling foam head, lasting, lacing. Coffee aroma and spiced coffee in taste. A very nice beer. (Velp 201612) mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2016
Pours a very dark brown with a brown head that leaves some pretty nice lacing. Nose us immediately recognizable as a Mikkeller stout/porter with that slightly overroasted (but not ashy) malt, chocolate and green hops. Chipotle is definitely there too to spice things up but it is not overpowering at all. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly bitter and the chipotle heat adds a nice touch. More green hops and chocolate. This doesn’t destroy your tastebuds at all, really nicely balanced. Body is medium-full, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is smooth and a little sticky. I rarely drink stouts and porters outside of tastings anymore but this one I could see myself drinking again. Nice! venom666 (1125) - Elche, Alicante, SPAIN - NOV 24, 2016
As Chipotle Porter. Pours a really nice pitch black color with medium brown head. Nice retention as well. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, molasses and roasted malts, with a slightly spicy undernote. Medium to full mouthfeel, creamy texture. Taste follows the nose, but this time, the chipotle is more present, but doesn’t overwhelm or mask the other flavours. Really nice Porter.
