Pours black with an off white two finger head. Smell is smokey, chocolate, woody, some dark fruits. tastes is smokey, dark malts,some vanilla, chocolate, hint of this chipotle peppers. Overall it's a great smoked porter with a nice smooth texture but I wish it was spicy, you get some pepper it no heat, I want heat in a beer made with peppers. This beer was very enjoyable, glad I got to try it.

Pours nearly black, w ith ruby highlights. Head is thick and sudsy, and tan in color. Lace is loopy and erratic.

Aroma? I get spicy pepper and cocoa. There's a little smoke in there, too, somehow. Very nice!

Body is silky smooth, and very nice. Plenty of cocoa and smoke in the taste. The chipotle pepper comes in later near the finish, but remains subtle, and only adds to the distinctive and unique flavor profile.

A very delicious and complex porter with nuance and high drinkability. Recommended!

A-Black in the glass, one finger off white head, clear brown when pouring.

S-Smoke, spices, roasted malt, coffee and chocolate.

T-Some smoke, good deal of spiciness, roasted malt, some coffee, not much chocolate though.

M-Lighter, not much carbonation and a tad watery.

O-One of Tyranena's better brews, their Brewers Gone Wild series seems to be worth checking out when news ones are released.

Pours a nice, dense, tan head. Acidic, toasted notes with a touch of chiles. Black. Starts acidic and roasted with notes of coffee and chocolate with a nice smokey backing to it.. Builds to a low-medium bitterness and the malt comes in through the finish. A TOUCH of poblano makes its way in.

Overall, a VERY nice Imperial Porter that is smoked.
Poblano? Yeah, sure, I guess....
I think the smoke adds an opaque layer of complexity that keeps the mild poblano from shining.
