A: Near pitch black with a huge dense mocha coloured head, much like an imperial stout – excellent stuff. Long lasting retention and good lacing.

S: Milk chocolate, smoke, roasted coffee bean, gingerbread, and vanilla. Can’t detect any chipotle or heat but the gingerbread may have been it, albeit a sweet heat. If creamy and smooth could be an aroma this would be it.

T: Caramel-molasses, chocolate & coffee, smokey peat, vanilla, and definitely a backend chipotle flavour. The heat from the pepper is strong enough without being too overpowering, although a full 750 of this for one person may be a bit much to get through.

M: Medium bodied with milder carbonation maybe more akin to a stout. Creamy and smooth.

D: Porter or stout, whichever this may be, it is a tasty one with a definite presence of chipotle with nice smoky and roasted elements.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured dark dark brown into a goblet, nice two fingers of head that fades to thin tan line.

Smells of roasted grains, chocolate

This tastes like a great porter with some chipotle on the finish. Roasty and chocolately to start

Light carbonation, medium bodied, this beer is pretty easy drinking

Overall, the pepper is just barely there, but does add some flavor and depth to this one. Would definitely try again
