look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Pours a dark brown with red/brown highlights with lots of tan head. Subtle bits of smoke and spice, as well as darkly roasted malt, an appealing nose for sure. Taste follows with smoke and distinct spicy afterburn. Slight coffee, but hops are lost among the rest. Not for everyone but I kinda like it. Spicyness is a tad over the top and overshadows the beer. But about midway it tones down and it was more enjoyable. Mouthfeel is good and overall a good interesting beer.

This one pours a dark brown leading to black with a nice off white head that settles very slow and leaves nice lacing down the glass.
The nose is excellent spicy and sweet with a tinge of sourness to the complexity that has hints of bread, alcohol and malt.
The taste is very nice with some of the tastes leading towards a variety of bitters. The chipotle is definitely there with notes of bread, nice bittering hops and a sweet malty undertone.
The moutfeel is fairly rich and a good match for this unique experience.
Overall this is a great result for an unexpected blend of Chipotle and porter. A very enjoyable and different experience with a nice bitter finish.

Enjoyed on tap at Beef O'Brady's in Newburgh, IN.
Pint poured a dark brown, almost opaque black into a Stone etched pint glass, with very little lace.
Aroma subtle, not much in the way of smokiness, porter malts, or pepper, somehow.
Taste is roasty and chocolate at first, followed by definite chipotle heat. Balance is good though... heat works well against the roastiness.
