Great and interesting winter beer
Definitely something different with the chipotle spice in it, but it makes for a little bit of a smoky flavor and a spicy aftertaste... not a beer you would want to keep drinking all night, but for one or two it's very good and just different enough from anything you can buy from the store!

Excellent Beer!
This is my 12th batch of homebrewing. I have to say this is the best beer I've brewed to date! Outstanding flavors, the pepper amount is just right, and all the flavors, outstanding! Great winter sipping beer.

Good stuff!
This is good beer. I was a bit disappointed at first because it seemed like the chipotle overwhelmed everything else, despite a slow brewing process (3 week primary, 2 month secondary, 1 month bottle condition). Approximately 9 months since brew day, it seems that only now is it getting into its prime. Definitely still smoky, but I'm getting much more cocoa and hops coming through, very smooth, and actually not a bad thirst quencher for early May. I'm saving a few bottles to try this winter. I recommend this, it's a a fun change of pace, but give it as much time as you can possibly bear. I also loved the wide mouth on the LMS container - big enough for a spatula to get all that malty goodness into my wort.

Best Kit I have ever made . I was hesitant at first about chipotle in beer, but man am I glad I made the choice to make this outstanding Porter.

Great tasting, just the right amount of heat, nice smokey flavor. I felt it needed a tad more cocoa flavor though. Will be brewing again adding 2 oz of cocoa nibs instead of 1.

Solid Porter
Thus was my first brew ever. Great instructions. Chocolate porter up front followed by spiciness. Go less on the Chipotle for a more subtle porter. May need more cocoa nibs.

Great Beer
Perfect brew for the winter months. Provides a great warmth as your drink it. It was brewed per the instructions - in a future batch I plan to replace the chipotle with ghost peppers for a little extra kick at the finish.

Fantastic beer!
Oh boy, this is a good beer! Made a yeast starter, primary for 2 weeks and kegged for a week before force carbing. It's got great hues of chocolate with a warm finish just in time for winter. Brew this beer now, you won't be disappointed.

This porter is a delicious not sweet, with a wonderful warmth in back of great taste. Perfect for a cold winter night. Goes great with chili too!
