Cervesa amb bastant gust torrat al inici, per al poc temps apareix el picant, molt interessant. Cerveza con bastante sabor tostado al inicio, pero al poco tiempo aparece el picante, muy interesante.

DalzAle (2030) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Sample thanks to Armin. Dark chocolate brown pour, little carbonation and an aroma of chipotle peppers(and nothing else.) Flavor is light malt, spicy chipotle peppers and a nice smokey heat that lingers. Very good for a chili beer!

Bottle to pint glass. Aroma of chocolate, toasted malt, cereal, straw, and sawdust. Thick black with a creamy brown head. The taste is of smoke, chipotle, and pine. Medium to heavy bodied, creamy and acidic.

beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Draft. Deep dark mahogany. Creamy light brown head. Dry. Lighter medium bodied. Silky smooth. Peppers layered in perfectly, especially in aroma. Chocolate, cocoa round things out with touches of licorice and molasses. A light roast and just enough sweetness to go along with the moderate heat and light smokiness from the peppers. Top notch.

mgajdaczewa (1980) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 8, 2014
W aromacie sporo czekolady, raczej słodszej, jest też karmel, trochę kawy zbożowej, muśnięcie suszonych owocw. W smaku pełne, gęste, wyraźna paloność (raczej stoutowa cecha) od samego początku po długi finisz. Gorzka czekolada w ogromnych ilościach, jest też kawa zbożowa. Papryczki są, objawiają się lekkim szczypaniem w język. Czyli mogłoby ich nie być, a byłoby rwnie dobrze. Pijalność niska, piwo wybitnie degustacyjne

tmrmwel (1970) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2012
On tap @ Pingvinen, Bergen. Pours an almost perfect black, with a fingerthick creamy and coloured head. Like a proper stout should. And, what? Not a stout? But the aroma is nice burned malts, with coffee, chocolate and toffee notes. The body is nicely creamy, with a soft carbonation. And the flavour is sweet with burned malts, coffee, chocolate and Hmmm, black pepper. And chili. Yes, lots of chili, and its getting hotter and hotter throughout the finish. Someone might argue that its a bit over the top with all this perppery chili? Well maybe not your average stout, but it sure kicks hard and strong for a 6,6 ABV. Nice one.

Yorker (1954) - Herning, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with some sediment and a tan head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate, and chilli. Flavour is roasted malt and a huge, delicious chilli bite.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 28, 2010
750ml bottle. Pours a nice deep chocolate brown that settles in black in the glass. The head is tan, thick and enormous, refusing to go anywhere and leaves sheets of lacing. The aroma is massively roasted with almost a burnt malt character. Plenty of cocoa powder and only the faintest hint of chipotle pepper, though it does grow as it warms. The taste is much like the aroma except for the finish. The start is all about the black malts, heavily roasted, with chocolate and hints of espresso. But the finish is where it gets interesting with the pepper flavors coming out and leaving a serious burn on the palate after each sip. The mouthfeel is smooth and close to full bodied for a normal porter. This thing almost has the feel of a Baltic porter, which is impressive given the ABV. There is certainly no doubt that Mikkel knows his way around stouts and porters and this is one of the more interesting ones Ive had. Its a big, robust porter with a big dose of peppers in the taste. Certainly not the most drinkable porter, but very complex and tasty for a porter.
