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

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'.
