Hard for me to review this beer, because I am just straight up not a fan of the whole "spicy pepper in beer" thing that has been going on lately. I just don't get it; spice and beer are not flavors that suit eachother in my opinion. That being said, the beer is well made: all of the things you would expect from a good smoked porter are there. Roasty malts, coffee and bitter chocolate, silky smooth texture, dark as pitch... And then there's some spice and chipotle flavor. Totally kills it for me.
Overall, well made beer, just not my thing.

4.03/5 rDev +6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: pours a dark brown almost black with a tan head that went down quickly. Clear
S: roasted malt, lager yeast smell, smell a little pepper,
T: heat and chipotle definitely come through, very toasty flavor, was not expecting to be that much chipotle pepper flavor as it doesn't come through on the nose as much, also a little smoky, it's kinda like roasted peppers in a glass
M: medium bodies, medium carbonation
O: wow is there a lot of heat in this thing

4.04/5 rDev +6.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
A: Pours a cola colored brown with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a nice cap that leaves decent lacing
S: Roasted malts, dark chocolate, a hint of cocoa and smoke, and a light spicy presence from the peppers
T: Follows the nose. Starts off with some roastiness and light sweetness and goes into some dark chocolate and smoke. The chipotle peppers come through after the brief sweetness and linger on well into the finish
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth
O: The peppers definitely provide a nice distinct angle on the base beer. They work nicely with the light smokiness and help to dial down any residual sweetness. The 5.9% abv makes this quite quaffable as well. Solid limited release
