This is a great kit. It was quick to make and tasted great. It has a lot of good strong roasted grain flavor, and was a big hit at our holiday party (along with the White Winter kit). The chipotle flavor is quite subdued, creating a rich background as opposed to an obvious pepper flavor.
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!
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.
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.
