look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - pitch black with a foamy brown head

S - chocolate, toasty and hints of the spicyness

T- chocolate with that chipotle spice hanging out through the experience; spicy in your throat

M - not a whole lot of carbonation but a little to start and finishing quite smooth; on the thicker side

O - wish there was more chipotle flavor in this. Was hoping it would taste closer to the traditional Mexican molé. Really enjoyable but I suggest sharing it with a friend or two as I did as it would be hard to finish a bomber of this by ones self. I look forward to trying more Mikkeller beers!

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. No clear date on the label. Stamped 6801210, whatever that might mean. Floating cowboy head. 100th review!

A: Very dark, opaque brown with 1 finger of caramel-colored head. Good retention. Lots of lacing. Boom!

S: Dark chocolate, roasted malt, mocha. Nice and assertive. Faint smoky pepper if I strain. Trace indistinct hop. Light booze.

T: Great chocolate, roasted malt sweetness develops into a round, balancing bitterness. Semi-dry finish. Chipotle develops in the aftertaste as a light chili heat - a perfect amount, really. Touch of coffee. Light alcohol.

M: Smooth, moderate/low carbonation with a pretty full body. Very solid.

O: Delicious porter with excellent chocolate notes. Superb treatment of the chipotle-infused heat. A little more smokiness would have sat nicely in the mix, but this was all-around good drinkin'.

Prost!
