DandyWolfFloyd (1200) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Aroma - has a nice mix of peppery (spicy) qualities over rich dark smoked malt. Appearance - body is black, with a big beige head. The head fades slowly, and has a mix of alcohol cloying and sud lacing. Taste - peppery (spicy), rich roast, annatto, and chocolate. Palate - body is full, texture thick, average carbonation, and a spicy alcoholic finish.

Bottle from some where in NoVa - pours cola with big chocolate head some . Aroma is smokey with the hint of jalapeo. Taste is smokey with the warmth of the jalapeo as you drink it down. Nice, but the spice is pretty subtle..

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2016 Pours black color, slightly haze, with stable creamy brown head. Visually low carbonation. Aroma: moderate malt aroma, which takes on coffee, bittersweet chocolate, but it is almost overdominated by chilli peppers aroma. Thats the reason, why hop aroma is so hard detectable. Flavor: intense malt aroma, which takes on espresso coffee, bittersweet chocolate, slightly roasted, and supported with gentle burn of chilli peppers. In the background are hop flavors, which takes on stone fruits, pine and dark fruits. Finish is slightly chilli pepperish burnt and lingers long in aftertaste. Body is medium to high, texture is soft, carbonation is low.

Black pour, thick tan head with reddish hues on edges. Ample lacing. Nose is chili peppers, coffee, some roasted malts. Taste is rich chocolate, chili peppers, coffee beans. Lingering hot pepper burn. Smooth, full sticky mouthfeel. Body more like a stout, even an imperial stout, than a porter. This was way, way better than i had anticipated.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Excellent, dark pour for the style with a nearly black body and a full, dense, creamy, dark tan head which is very nearly fully lasting and leaves thick, frothy lace rings. The nose is smoky like the chipotle pepper (almost rauch-like), dark breads, burnt caramels, bakers chocolate, light chocolate malt (malt as in malt flavoring, not grain), faint chocolate cake, and a roasted coffee bean note in there as well. The flavor is different with less smoke and more roasted presence; similar chocolate malt notes, chocolate cake and Hersheys chocolate syrup, light tones of smoky French roast coffee beans, and burnt caramels. The palate is medium to full, very dry but still round and silky, and soft to lively. The finish is very long, especially for a 6.6% beer with rich notes of burnt caramel and dark chocolate, dry restrained roast almost with a cedar-like quality, and ultimately the spiciness of the chipotles leaving a mild burn on the tongue, like a good chile or salsa. Very intriguing beer with all the notes of the pepper (smokiness in the nose, heat in the finish) but never even being more than a complementary note in the beer. Odd how you really got the smoky notes in the nose, not much in the beginning of flavor progression but all the heat on the tongue as the porter notes disappear. The pepper notes worked very well with the base beer adding a unique complexity instead of clashing or contrasting. Very likable beer, even for people who are not big chipotle pepper fans. Mikkeller does amazing work.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Very dark with a tan head. Taste reminds me more of a stout than anything. Tons of roastiness with chocolate and coffee flavors. The bit of smokiness and spice from the peppers gives it personality, though it may be a bit too spicy for some. Id say between Billys Chilies and Cave Creek (looking past the taste).
