tfredvik (1884) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2014 This is the most viscous looking beer Ive had in a very long time: the pitch black liquid barely drips out the bottle! A large, creamy and very dense head with a scary dark brown colour forms easily and stays big for a long time before settling as a thick layer. Lots of foam is still clinging to the glass after the Texas Ranger is gone. The aroma is very strong and not surprisingly on the malty side. Its heavily roasted with dark caramel, coffee and liquorice, some fainter chocolate and in the back I get traces of fruits and berries and even some juicy tobacco. Delicious! I cant say I pick up any chilli in the aroma, but the chipotle certainly is obvious in the flavours! Especially in the long, moderate bitter aftertaste, the burning chilli makes this a beer you dont hurl down, this is definitely a sipper. The initial taste is moderate sweet, and this soothes the palate for a while, until the next wave of chilli attacks. Other flavours include roasted notes, coffee and liquorice, and more pronounced notes of chocolate and tobacco that I found in the flavours. I also get vague hints of leather. The mouthfeel (and throat feel!) is very rough due to the chilli, and in the beginning it was actually a bit unpleasant. Further down in the glass Im slowly getting used to the roughness. The body is full, the texture is very oily and slick, the carbonation is soft. A wonderful and intense beer, although its a bit demanding. The most demanding part is of course all the googling thats involved: how to pronounce "chipotle"?
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 1.5 years before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Online]

Kauge (1877) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 30, 2014
33 cl bottle from a Selver in Tallinn ( 4,59). Pours a beautiful black with a huge dark brown head that stays and laces nicely. Nose is intoxicating - its dark bittersweet chocolate with roasty malts, some spiciness and certain vanilla subtlety, some hoppiness, and faint notes of tart red berries deep there too. Taste begins with a surprisingly smooth, sweet chocolate that the hot spiciness of chipotle quickly crashes into. The chipotle intensifies during many seconds, then calms down to leave a spicy / hoppy, near-burnt warmth in the throat. It has a medium plus body, slightly syrupy and sticky texture, quite soft carbonation, and a long, spicy finish. Im a sucker for stuff like this.

Bottle@ De Tolly Joogipood. Pours deep dark brown with nice thick brown head. Aroma of burnt malts, coffee, some herbal notes. Taste burnt malts, some light chilli spicyness, coffee, medium bitter. Good beer.

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

mmahut (1858) - CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours in black body with really high brown creamy head, wonderful. Aroma has coffee notes, light smoky. Taste has high toffee sweetness, cold coffee after taste, smokiness all over the palate. The lacing is just amazing. Im not sure if the roastiness comes from the chipotles or the malt, but is just really balanced. The after taste finishes with full toffee, caramel. I dont get any chilli sensation from it, just a really good and balanced stout. Body is full, high carbonation.

jcos (1851) - Maryland, USA - FEB 22, 2011
I really enjoyed this beer, and I like spicy food and drinks, but I cannot imagine drinking an entire bottle of this myself. The peppers begin to stick in your throat. Otherwise I would have a higher rating.

Pours totally black with a dark brown head. Aroma is malt, roastiness, smokiness, soy, coffee and chili. Taste is light sweet, quite roasty leading to a roasty and spicy finish. Interesting and awesome.
