Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a tan head. Aroma is roasty, with plenty of chocolate and some smoky elements. I don’t get much of the spicy chipotle as advertised. The taste is dominated by smoky chocolate flavors. I find some peppery zest. It is a mild spiciness, but it does leave a bit of burning afterwards. Aftertaste is that spiciness, with heavy chocolate and less smoke. More light in body, with a slick, oily texture. Mild to flat carbonation. This one is pretty good.
Bomber at Tivoli. Yes. This is how a chipotle smoked porter should be done. Nothing is too subdued, nothing is too overwhelming. It’s a nice, dark, dark brown with a khaki head. Aroma has plenty of assertive campfire, roasted malt, chocolate, smoked peppers, bacon, and brownies. The palate is full and coating, but never a chore to choke down. The capsaicin burn is pleasantly present. It never makes me sweat, but I never wish it was stronger. Clean smoked peppers highlight a meaty, smoky, chocolatey, leathery malt body. All around fantastic and not afraid to represent the advertised flavors. Ratman197 (14852) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2016

Black, opaque with a tan head and nice lace. Full body. Heat follow thru the finish, might pair well with spicy hot dishes markducommun (1117) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2016
Dark clearish, black-brown. Smells of molasses, some bitter chocolate. Initially quite sweet, turns very spicy through the finish. Medium chewy palate, very acidic. Quite good.

Smells light and fluffy cocoa marshmallow. Taste is smooth with a pretty nice burn at the end. Smoke, cocoa, super chipolte. 22oz pour at Lakehouse hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle... Pours clear and brown with mahogany highlights and a tiny, fleeting, white head. The nose presents milk chocolate, smoked meat and brine - smells salty. Full-bodied with weak carbonation. The flavor is smoky and sweet with a rumor of salt. Nice chili flavor and warmth in the finish. Ultra-light cardboard element and a trace of salt lingers in the aftertaste.

Dark brown color, small off-white head. Smoked, roasted, slightly fruity aroma. Medium-bodied. Caramel, light chilli, low bitterness. A bit dissapointing.
