A month after the enjoy by date, this is quite fresh to me. Leaves a nice full, khaki head with a slightly aggressive pour.
Traditional porter scents diffuse to me with a hint of peat malt. Smoke leads the way with a bit of caramel and roasted malt
across my palate. Chipotle flavor is there but subdued in the end. A nice pepper spiciness tingles the lips between sips, and now you are
sure this is a pepper porter. Pair this with your favorite steak, while I'd like this next to a plate of Szechuan chicken and fried rice..

Visually, it's as expected. The aroma has more chipotle than smoke. That carries to the flavor, as well. This isn't a sneaky hit, it hits you immediately. However, it's not overpowering. After you get through the heat, there's smoke, char, even a bit of chocolate. Lips still tinge for a bit, too.

This is truly outstanding. Everything in the title is there, and with phenomenal balance. Love it.
