22 oz. bottle served in a Pipeworks snifter. Batch #95.

A: Pours a dark black with a quick dissolving light khaki head. It recedes to a thin ring.

S: Hefty doses of smoke, charred wood and light chipotle peppers. The slight smoke is slightly meaty in nature with a nice roasted malt sweetness as well.

T: Very nice. There isn't any heat from the chipotle peppers, just great flavor. Raw and earthy in nature it really compliments the smokiness from the smoked malts. Subtle roast with a hint of charred wood. Little dark chocolate bitterness resides in the periphery.

M: Medium bodied, teetering on the thin side, with a medium low carbonation level. A smokiness lingers on the finish.

O: Everything is really understated which is nice because a lot of smoked beers are completely over the top. I could have used a little more chipotle pepper in the flavor, but overall this was a nice addition to the Smoked Porter lineup.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Pipeworks snifter.

A- pours black with a 1 finger tan head. Minimal lacing.

S- chocolate, smoke, light pepper

T- roasted malts, chocolate, some smoke, there is pepper flavor but not much spice.

M- medium body and carbonation. Has a warming feeling from the peppers in the aftertaste.

O- nice porter, has some pepper and warming but I wish there was some more spice.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I'm still steamed at my local Chipotle for not honoring my quesarito order... Anyway, this stuff pours a deep black-brown topped by a half-finger of off-tan foam. The nose comprises cherrywood smoke, chipotle peppers (the peppers' smoke is distinct from the surrounding cherry), mild molasses, and a touch of cocoa powder. Everything blends together so well, and the smoke is so easy-going and pleasant, that I honestly don't wanna stop sniffing. The taste brings in more of the same, with a lighter smoke contingent, some cinnamon, some extra cocoa, and a hint of hickory wood. The peppers come through with a hint of spiciness close to the finish, but they don't linger very long. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a damn tasty smoked porter, one that doesn't over- or underdo it when it comes to both the smoke and the peppers (though the peppers come awfully close to underdone). Get some.

Dark brown color, some larger bubbles result when the bottle is poured from a height, but there's not much foam that lasts. Thin ring around the edges with the barest amount of spotty sea spray lace.

Smoky aroma hits with some peaty iodine at first, becoming more woody and layered with malt toastiness as it warms.

Pleasant smooth feel with lower carb levels, earthy smoky chipotles linger into the dry aftertaste. Plenty of chile flavor without much heat really. End of Days is spicier. Some dry bakers chocolate notes come out mid-palate, and a slight tingle from the peppers as well. Overall a great variation on the standard Smoked Porter. Don't be scared off by the warning on the label that it's spicy...
