Pours a luscious sable just a whisker above black with a very thick and fluffy dark tan head that sticks around for a bit. Aroma has a strong overtone of semi-sweet chocolate as well as molasses and roast coffee notes and a hint of toffee. Flavor fills the mouth with chocolate, roast coffee and molasses tones plus nutty and toffee hints. The chilis add an interesting and unique zing to the full-bodied and fizzy flavor, making it unique among all beers that I have tried so far. A must for porter fans, if you don’t mind a bit of pepper heat.

Velvet black pour with caramel head. Smokey and caramel with bitter chocolate and spice on the palate. A rich and warming beer with the chilli factor slowly building at the back of the throat and in the stomach.

330ml bottle. Was not expecting this beer to be what it is. Fantastic beer with prominent vanilla and coffee notes tangled in with Chilli. Potentially diminished chilli flavors due to age.

cafecito con sorpresa al final, una cerveza que bebida bien atemperada puede ser brutal con ese picor final en la garganta!

Thanks to rateyourpoison for sharing! Pours deep brown near black with a huge creamy tan head aroma super cocoa roasted malt definite chipotle spice and smoke. Flavor starts super sweet chocolate and cocoa picking up more spice and a soft but definite chipotle spice. Finishes like pepper cocoa very rich. Med full body with a softish carbonation. Delicious well rounded complex beer

Chipotle Porter bottle. Pours jet oily black with mocha tan head. Aroma is fantastic vanilla bean, chocolate, chipotle pepper and smoked wood. Taste is very complex chocolate, coffee, vanilla and chipotle pepper. The pepper gets stronger as it warms, but is always satisfying. Smooth and extremely well crafted.

Black in color with a tan, frothy, bubbly head. Lacing holds very well on the side of the glass. Strong coffee and chocolate aromas. No hops pop out in the smell. Definite spicy kick hits the back of your throat instantly. Very smooth black coffee flavor with a chocolatey texture. A full-bodied beer that leaves your taste buds working overtime. Overall i think spice and a malty beer go very well together. This is the type of beer i am always looking for. YUMMY!!!!!

Cafè, xocolata, fosca com la nit, escuma persistent que es menja i amb un lleuger final picant, molt agradable i llarg. Fantàstica.

Out of all the Mikkeller arrivals this week this is by far the most supported and loved. Chipotle porter ROCKS!!!!! Any god fearing Ozzie who loves their chilli tim tams will find this beer right up their alley. The beer pours a picture perfect porter, dark, choclatey in colour with a rich coffee like head on top. Unsure what the balance was going to be like I had to try it straight away and found that the gas did not turn this into a spicy hot chocolate flabby and out of sync, O was I wrong... the suds were in balance with the smoothy choclatey mouthfeel and the chipotle was neither the prima donna or the second fiddle during the entire act. Harmonious construction, lingering spiciness and delicate balance... Hedonistic as this may be, this would rock out as a chicken marinade or like my Friday will be spent: Tim tam slamming a Texan..... YEE HAW!!!!
