Oakes (16515) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2012
Pretty much black. Into the goblet w/o much head. Fat rich malt, lots of chocolate and dark fruits. The palate has a stack of bitter chocolatw (not even close to Mexican) and a subtle chipotle character. Some rounded ancho notes, lots of deep chocolatey porter stuff. I personally wod like it smokier but this is nice.

brokensail (16332) - 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 Ive come across. A really nice porter with a well done chili addition.

mcberko (16066) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 3, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2011 Bottle sampled at SIB as "Chipotle Porter", pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, wood and chipotle peppers. Flavour follows accordingly, with a spicy finish. Excellent.

Dedollewaitor (15777) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 12, 2010
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!

jtclockwork (15614) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2010
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.

MiP (15394) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2010
Draught at K10. 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.

FatPhil (15154) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 1, 2011
330ml bottle (S. Brevinga Alus Salons, Riga)
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 wont 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 didnt immediately say chilli to me, hoppy too. But the gentle burn in the finish explains everything - yup, its chilli.
14 Very good chilli beer, possible one of the best Ive had. Its very mellow and unaggressive (but I am very much a chilli fan), fitting in with the roast very well.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2011 Bottle at Morten & Heidis - Shared with Morten & Mette (Heidi didnt like it). Pitch black - brown head. Burned, high burned, sharpness, light chili taste, peppery, smokey, nice smokey, chocolate, medium hoppy, vegetable hoppy, thick body. Chili burning finish - too much for me.............Re_Rate: New version is a bit more smokey and less chili burning... lovely !!!

Benzai (14821) - 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.
