Pours a full opaque black with a latte coloured head that lingers and laces beautifully. Indeed, this is a beautiful beer.
The nose is actually kind of disappointing. I get some light smoke, and not much else.
It's a tasty beer, just not as outstanding as I had hoped. The taste is charred malts with a strong smoke backbone. A little bit of almost sweet is in there in the last third, but ultimately a little uninspiring.
My first thought was that it was a heavily carbonated beer, then I realized that the tingle I was feeling was largely from the little bit of chili bite. Plays across the palate very well, and that little bite at the end with just a touch of heat is very well executed. Overall, I'd say this beer probably suffers from elevated expectations more than anything else. Worth checking out, but nothing mindblowing.

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.
