Chipotle Smoked Porter (Pipeworks)

This is the first time I've tried a brew from Pipeworks that I can remember. This is from Batch #95 that I picked up last year or a couple of years ago. This was a rainy-day cellar raid, and it was delicious.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This brown-black brew porter had a coffee-colored head that dissipated quickly. It had a dark chocolate, smoked roast aroma. The spicy chili came through.

Taste: It was surprisingly creamy. It was like a creamy milk. It was chocolaty. The slight burn hits a bit (more as it warms) and a mellow smoke flavor, but it doesn't completely wipe the creaminess away. It was a nice brew to drink on its own or with the shredded pork tacos I made tonight.

From the bottle:
For those crazy enough to think our smoked porter needed something more, we give you chipotle smoked porter. In addition to the already bold character from the smoked malts, we bring the heat with a healthy dose of chipotle peppers to take this rich porter to the next level. Recommended pairing with a giant hunk of smoked meat and a big-ass bonfire on a cold night.
