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. thirstyrabbit (1851) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 25, 2012
Bottle. Dark body, medium tan head. Sweet and roasty aroma with some coffee. Big sweet and roasty taste. Finish reveals the chili heat. Not sure if I like chili in beers or not. If you want your beer to taste hot, why not just crank up the ABV? The stout base is good, however. Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2013
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. neongolden (1832) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2014
(330ml bottle from LCBO) Pours extremely dark brown with a moderate, fairly dense brown head. Aroma of dark and roasted malts, roast is medium, coffee and chocolate cake notes, a little smoke and chipotle heat as an undertone. On the palate, slightly sweet dark malt core, with a dark fruitiness, black coffee, moderate to high roast, a little coffee, smoky, chipotle flavor and moderate heat. The beer is quite dry from the middle on, heat from chipotles prominent and drying, some flavor and smoke too, dry roast bitterness supports that character. Finishes with a soft lingering burn from the peppers in the mouth and on the lips. Moderate body with moderate carb. Definitely a chili beer, this, but it’s a well balanced one with the porter body being just robust enough. I liked the way the nose conveyed chipotles without heat, and the palate had that nice heat in the mouth without burning the throat or stomach. Recommended brew. cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2010
A-pours an opaque black, viscous liquid with a thick creamy caramel brown head with a solid lace.
S-milk chocolate, mikkeller ash and peat moss, hints of smoke, somewhat assertive spice towards the back.
T-milk chocolate up front, notes of smokey peat moss, huge peppery spice in the back that I can’t get over. rough to drink for me but beer spice heads might like.
M-creamy feel, full bodied, somewhat dry with a clean finish.
D-this starts like a milk stout and immediately burns my throat with nothing I enjoy. the pepper is extremely spicy and overpowering in the back lingering throughout the sip.

Bottle - pours black, opaque with a small dark cap - rich roasty-cocoa tones in the nose with a hint of spice and smokiness- flavour is a rich thick blend of roasty dark malts with bright hopping enhanced by a piquant sharpness - rich roasty finish with a spicy smoky end to it. I think the smoky chipotle ads to the porter and the use of thi spice was judicious and accurate to make it a great accompaniment to the palate.

Pours an opaque black with a brow hat that leaves spotty lacing up the glass. Aroma of chipotle peppers, cocoa powder, dark chocolate & roasted malts. Taste is dark malts, coffee up front that turns into coffee bitterness on the end & then a burning/warming from the chipotle peppers. Very smooth and great blend for the high amount of chipotle pepper in this beer. degbert (1776) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Poured from bottle Very nice nose -- almost a mole-like aroma. Dark, dark, dark, with an espresso head. Flavor is dry and complex -- there’s a lot of roasty notes, chocolate, a touch of licorice. The peppers really kick in on the finish; I feel them in my throat more than taste them. Very nice beer. spacecube (1771) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2013
On keg at Brewdog, pours as a thick textured black imperial stout, with chocolate malts, toasted coffee, chilli, smoked vegetable, all coming together well in a smooth finish. Excellent beer, unusual because of the thick velvety finish for a 6.6%. Torrefacto (1764) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 28, 2013
Su aroma es muy especiado, verdaderamente se nota el chili. En boca en pricipio es mas bien amarga y achocolatada. El chili se muestra mas al final, es más, conforme la bebes, más especiada y picante sabe. lo cual le da una progesividad bastante interesante. La verdad es que ha sido una experiencia muy grata y sorprendente. Se la recomendaria a cualquier amante de las porter/stout
