Barrell aged chipoltle porter bottle.Poured to a lager pub glass.Initial 3 finger cinnamon tan head,lots of lacing.
Fantastic aroma,mainly a malt milk chocolate, a little carmel and sweetness,somewhat fresh bready.You can kinda detect some heat.Vanilla bourbon oak tones.Great aroma!
Taste is smooth medium sweet,creamy chocolate with a light but smooth kind of roastyness fairly bready with the creamyness and some dark cherry kind of edge to it, there is a nice bitterness in the finish balanced and smooth as well.Some earthy oaky dryness comes out as it warms giving it a mild woody chocolate dryness.The chiplotle heat comes out a bit in the finish but i probably wouldnt know it had i not known chipoltle was in it.But you can start to notice it in the finish as it warms.

750ml bottle - labeled Chipotle Porter.
I’ve been wanting to try this one for some time now - dark black color with some tan head. Aromas of cocoa, some nutiness and smoke. Flavor is incredible! Some sweetness, chocolate flavors - some heat from the peppers but in no way overpowering. Increasing spiciness as it lingers - very unique. lamas (1655) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 25, 2011
750mL "Chipotle Porter" bottle. A jet-black pour with a thick & creamy mocha head that leaves rings of lacing behind. A rich aroma that features lots of smoke, chili peppers, BBQ, cocoa powder, caramel, dark chocolate, vanilla, and some grapefruity hoppiness in the background. Medium to full-bodied and silky smooth on the way down. The taste is moderately sweet upfront with some chocolate, cocoa, and caramel. A fairly dry finish that lingers with a bit of grapefruitiness. Wow! A really authentic BIG chili pepper burn in the back of the throat that hangs around forever. The chipotle peppers actually overshadow the ample hoppiness. Some smokiness (BBQ and charcoal) is present throughout. Interesting and unique. I’ve had other beers brewed with chili peppers, but none have imparted the essence on this level. Another winner from Mikkeller. JBPortland (1647) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2015

330 ml bottle - pours coffee brown with no head. Aroma of motor oil, liquorice, Dutch drop. Medium body with an immediate attack of mouth and throat due to the peppers. It’s too much and not gentle at all... Poured it, pity. McWorta (1633) - LUXEMBOURG - AUG 1, 2014
Black clear colour with a dark brown ruby reddish pillowy head. Aromas of roasted malts, some coffee notes, liquorice and faintly fruity hop note arise on the nose. The beer offers a lovely balanced softly carbonated light slick texture with flavours of roasted malt, coffee, liquorice and smoked chilli shining noticeably through. Medium-full bodied and rather complex. The finish is slick and lasting with clear chilli burns, though all harmonically balanced. You like chilli, you like this beer!

Pich black color, frothy brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, sweet coffee and hint of chilli peppers and hops. Taste is bitter, roasty and ash flavor with smoked note, Dry at finish with minor burning throath chilli, bitter coffee and chocolate. Medium body, smooth texture and low carbonation. Very balanced beer, easy drinking but pretty complex. KoNrRiI (1622) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2015
0.33 bottle. Black color and the first actually brown head I have seen, leaving a good lacing. Aroma of coffee, meat, vegetables, paprica, pepper, and hot spices. Taste of coffee, dark malts, burnt caramel, and again some hot spices. Full body, creamy texture, and an almost flat carbonation. Finish is actually piquant, definitely malty, and full of caramel. Overall a good beer, the spiciness is unusual but it actually works unlike in some other brews I had. berntholer (1619) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2015
