N: Smoke, malts, chili spices.
T: Roasty and smokey, chili peppers, faint chocolate and caramel.
M: Moderate body and semi-medium carbonation. Finishes spicy and smokey.
O: An interesting smoked jalapeño chili beer. Not too hot and not lingering.

On draft at Ballast point in Little Italy.
Similar appearance to the regular Black Marlin porter. Dark brown, nearing black, with a thin beige cap. The aroma brings the pepper heat right away. The flavor has all of the characteristics found in the base beer, but these are overshadowed by spicy heat. A beer like this walks a fine line. How do you showcase the chipotle and retain a balanced, drinkable beer? A fun experiment and worth a try...once. A sample pour was all I needed. More than a few ounces would fatigue my palate rather hastily.

I had this in tap at the Ballast Point tap room and kitchen in the Little Italy neighborhood. Cool place and lots of beer choices. Appearance was no different than the black marlins I've had previously, black. Aroma was chipotle pepper and the flavor was adobo sauce. This wasn't hot but it was seriously all chipotle, felt very one dimensional. I think the regular version is better.
