Dark opaque brown color, good creamy brown head. Coffeish chocolaty aroma, roasted with herbal notes. A bit milky too. Not so pleasant. Maybe because of chili? Medium-bodied. Coffee, burnt-roasted maltyness. Some tar/smoke and milky sweetness. Gimmick here is nice chipotle burn in the aftertaste. Otherwise this is not the best of Mikkeller Impys but chili works here very well.
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2011 On tap at KØ-10. It looks lovely in the glass, with it’s black body and brown head. The aroma and flavor is just as gorgeous, and I’m really looking forward to have it again. The aroma has roasted malts, alcohol, licorice, lots of roasted malts and a nice chili touch. The chili leaves a pleasant warmth in the flavor, with coffee and roasted malts as a base, some licorice coming through too. Full-bodied and chili-warming, with chili and roasted malts in the finish. Chili the most evident of those. Ummmm. Rating: 9-5-9-4-17-4.4. 100506jtclockwork (16724) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Bottle, 75cl. A black one, looking unclear, and topped by a medium sized tan head. Smoked nose with coffee, chocolate, chipotle chili, some sweetness and a touch of peanuts. Rather toasted, smoked flavor with chili, choclate, coffee and a malty sweet backbone. Full-bodied, warming and hot, finishing with roasted malts, coffee and chili. A balanced beer with lots of delicious flavors. Even though I downrated it a bit, it’s still a gorgeous beer, one I need to revisit. 101015
Chipotle Porter bottle. Pours jet oily black with mocha tan head. Aroma is fantastic vanilla bean, chocolate, chipotle pepper and smoked wood. Taste is very complex chocolate, coffee, vanilla and chipotle pepper. The pepper gets stronger as it warms, but is always satisfying. Smooth and extremely well crafted. brokensail (16486) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is viscous and black with a big mocha colored head that has great staying power.
S: A very subtle chili spice that lies underneath a nice smokey and roasty nose. There is a bit of a woody note too, along with a bit of earth and salt.
T: The chipotles give this beer a real interesting flavor. Smoke, spice, salt, and earth all come to mind immediately. The beer is quite rich and chocolatey with lots of roasted character as well.
M: I was surprised when I checked the label to see this beer is only 6.6% because the mouthfeel is very impressive. Very full bodied with a nice creamy carbonation.
D: This is (surprisingly) one of the best Mikkeller beers that I’ve come across. A really nice porter with a well done chili addition.

7 Lovely roasty aroma, spicy hops too, a touch nettly.
5 Black, gorgeous tight tan head. Alas the barman pouerd in all the crap, but I won’t dock points for that.
7 Lovely rich roasty taste, a real buzz of tingly hops. Burntness is very dry but not astingent.
4 Very smooth palate. I would say slick, but the careless pouring might explain that, so again not docking points. Great tingle in the mouth, but it didn’t immediately say chilli to me, hoppy too. But the gentle burn in the finish explains everything - yup, it’s chilli.
14 Very good chilli beer, possible one of the best I’ve had. It’s very mellow and unaggressive (but I am very much a chilli fan), fitting in with the roast very well.
Bottle @ Odense Tasting, April 2010. Pours pitch black with a creamy head and lacings. Nose is roast, coffee and smoke. Velvetly smooth flavor and palate. Hard roasted coffee, chili and chocolate. Warm and quite hot bite. Very well made! Benzai (15937) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2015
Bottle [As Mikkeller Chipotle Porter] @ weekly tasting shared with Thompson. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized quite quickly diminishing brown head. Aroma is malts, roasted malts, a bit earthy. Taste malts, roasted malts, earthy again, peppers come through very subtly so even I (who cannot stand spicy food or anything spicy for that matter) can drink it and -above all- enjoy it. Medium to full body, soft, yet suitable carbonation. Quite pleasant. MiP (15920) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2010
Draught at KØ10. Roasted aroma. Black colour. Dark brown head. The flavour is sweet and roasted. Has a distinct hop bite, tastes like chili. Which it is, I am told. Gets a bit hot, but is good. Ferris (15910) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle - Chocolate and smoke with a bit of spice, almost like a Mole. Jet black with a creamy dark brown head. Bittersweet chocolate which mellows to an almost milk chocolate and finishes with some peppery heat on the back of the throat. I feel the chocolate notes overwhelm the real chipotle flavor, but I do still enjoy it.
