look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A- Deep brown, a ruby red on the edges, little head and rim retention last long.
S- Very smokey up front, with a bbq like smell, then the coffee and malt flood in finally a hint of pepper is at the end. Pretty good, like a stout that was just bbq.
T- A lot of coffee up front, taste simuilar to firestone's coffee porter. Deep chocolate/malt flavor. At the end is a herby/bitter/spicy. The chipotle blends with the hops, which is great, IPAs go great with something spicy. After taking some more sips the chipotle black pepper taste can be found throughout the whole taste very light. After a few sips there a very mild burn on the back of the tounge.
M- Chewy from the coffee, bit grainy too from the coffee and the pepper. Good carbonation.
D- I'll admit I have fall in love with add a dash of chipotle to beers. I've brewed my own chipotle ale turned out great. Its a great twist on a all ready good porter (or maybe its masking some of its bad traits) who knows... I def plan to drink more of this, although after one you might be running a risk of heart burn.

4.2/5 rDev +12%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Serving Type: 22 ounce bomber poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: Looks great, black, nice tan head with lots of tiny bubbles, head dissipates pretty quickly, nice carbonation.
Smell: A lot of roast from the coffee, smoky aromas from the chipotle, I'm getting more of smoky aroma than anything else.
Taste: Smoky flavor up front, getting the coffee in the middle with some bitterness, spicy chipotle aroma on the back end leading into some spice, a mild spice, alcohol is present at 6.7% but not overwhelming.
Mouthfeel: Lost of carbonation, smooth, dry mouthfeel at the end.
Overall: Great beer, as for spiced beers this and Stone Smoked Porter with Chipotle are my two favorites.
