Pours dark black with a hint of ruby. Good head and nice lacing through consumption. This chipotle version definitely enhances the smokey aroma - its impossible to miss as you raise the glass,to your face. The hero is the flavor. Enhanced smokey flavor with some subtle spiced chocolate notes up front but then the kicker is the spice that lingers well on the very back end. The chipotle really kicks in late - not even fair to say its on the backend of this train - the best of the chipotle comes well after the caboose. Well done.

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.
