Good balance of chipotle and the smoke is complimentary, not overpowering.

12 ounce bottle, bottled on 11JAN16 stamped on the bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with almost an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells like subtle smoke, chili peppers, and chocolate. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, it's subtle smoke, chili peppers and chocolate. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's coating and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It's also smooth and easy enough to drink. I thought this was OK overall, but I wish it had more kick to it. I think this is the 3rd beer I've tried from Tyranena and I can't say any of them have impressed me (not that their beers have been bad either). But if you like subtle chili pepper flavor, then give this a try.

Poured into Tulip. No date on the bottle, assume it was bottled within the last month.

Dark pour, no transparency. Nice creamy head, sticky lacing along the sides of the glass.

Campfire smoke on the nose, very faint pepper heat, mild chocolate. As this beer warms the noise becomes stronger and more defined.

Smokey chocolate, roasted chili peppers, that leave a very faint burn as it goes down the throat. Roasted malts.

Nice creamy mouthful. Spot on carbonation. Heat lingers as the beer warms.

Good imperial porter. Perfect balance of smoke, peppers, and malts.
