Poured into a pilsner glass. Dark brown (essentially the color of dried chipotles) with a nice little white head. Good amount of lacing.

T - Dark malt hits first then the taste of the chipotle. I think it's too apparent... I'm not a fan of chipotle in my beer apparently. There is a nice hint of chocolate in their though to sweeten things up a very tiny bit. Peppery taste with that southwest kick. Taste lingers on the back of the tongue.

M - Medium carbonation and actually pretty smooth.

I have a hard time drinking this. It's just not blended all that well. I feel like you could get the same taste by blending chocolate and dried chipotle peppers in a blender and drinking the juice. Interesting beer, but I won't have again.

Serving type: on-tap

Inky dark brown with ruby highlights and a frothy light brown head that sinks quickly, but leaves nice spotted lacing around the glass.

Aroma is low, consisting of standard issue roasted malt.

Flavor is initially roasty malt, followed by hints of roasted marshmallow, cocoa and caramel, just a bit of smoke which I assume come from the chipotle. There's a hint of spice in the finish, and it rests firmly in the back of the throat, thereby providing a lasting spicy tingle that lingers long. Chipotle is not overpowering in the flavor or the tingle, just enough to add an interesting accent to the beer and not let you forget that it's there.

Mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery, but drinkability is good. Very enjoyable porter with an added bonus that's kept in control so as to keep this beer from becoming a silly novelty.
