I poured this into a standard 12-oz mug. The beer is very dark--completely opaque--with a small but lasting head of tan foam. The aroma is great--wonderful maltiness, with a light smokiness, and a sharp scent of chiles. Taste mirrors this. There's a good black patent malt flavor, but it doesn't dominate, and lets the smoky flavor come through well--a nice subtle smokiness I should add. The phenols are not overpowering. The chipotle taste is more apparent in the aroma than to taste, but there's still there if you look--especially at the finish. The body is a little thin and watery, the only downside to this beer. Otherwise, very drinkable.

Bottle has aged, but I don't have a exact time. It's been less than a year.

Nose has hint of smoke and earthiness.

Mouthfeel is smooth with a light-medium body with chipotle bouncing off the back of the tongue.

Taste is well balanced with even keel of smoke and peppers.

Overall, this hits all the right areas for me. Porter, smoked, chipotle peppers, sitting on my deck in the rain, smoking a duck at high noon! Does life get any better?
