Habanero (3569) - Tranbjerg, - JAN 26, 2013
Bottled. Pours nearly black with a medium sized, tan head leaving an excellent lacing. Nose of slightly roasted malt, chocolate, various spices and chili notes. Sweet flavor with a spicy touch and a dry and quite bitter finish with a soft chili bite. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft CO2. Beer, chili and chocolate: A great blend. ★★★★

superspak (3980) - Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2016
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 10/14/2019. Pours dense pitch black color with a 2 finger dense and rocky dark brown bread with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Incredible appearance. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, molasses, chili pepper, smoke, tobacco, nuttiness, light dark fruit/licorice, pine, light char, and herbal/roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, cocoa/spice, and earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, molasses, chili pepper, smoke, tobacco, nuttiness, light dark fruit/licorice, pine, light char, and herbal/roasted earthiness. Good amount of roast/char/pine bitterness and pepper spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, molasses, chili pepper, smoke, tobacco, nuttiness, light dark fruit/licorice, herbal, pine, and roast/char earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, cocoa/spice, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness from bitter/spiciness as well. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/chalky, and sticky/resinous balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Very minimal pepper heat as well. Overall this is an outstanding spiced American stout style. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, cocoa/spice, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

AshtonMcCobb (4432) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2016
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - deep dark and opaque with a nice fawn head. Nose - green, very herby, chocolate coming through too. Taste - sweet malt, cereal, nettles at the back. Palate - close to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a dry balanced finish. Overall - complex and interesting.

Bottle. Pours black with a steady brown head. Beer is very rich, aromas and flavours of cocoa, chocolate, vanilla. Peppers present in the taste, very pleasing, absolutely not only for chilli heads. Pleasant oily texture and low caarbonation only keep this beer better and better. Very good stuff.

cagou007 (688) - FRANCE - FEB 1, 2016
Amazing deep black color with thick and persistent brown head. Nose is chocolate, hops and roasted malts. Aromas are roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, a chili note. I guessed the black beans, but I definitely didn't get the almond milk and the avocado leaves (?!). Low carbonation, oily texture. Long bitter, roasty and hot finish. Intersecting and complex beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BrewGoblin (631) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JAN 27, 2016
Extremely unique and thought provoking, Mexas Ranger is a U-turn on a style twisted upside down and inter-dimensionally...or some such superfluousness. One of the few beers I have had that forces my hands to type "umami", shades of charred meat mesh with hints of chocolate, vanilla, smokey chilies, burnt toffee and brown sugar. The carbonation is relaxed, the body slick, a sweet, salty and smokey finish remains. Not an everyday drinker, this well-crafted departure from the mundane is a treat to behold.

varanid99 (832) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2016
Black pour with a very thin brown head. Chocolate, roasty, coffee, burnt notes from the dark malt. Taste is roasty, smoky, dark chocolate, creamy. May be a tiny bit of warmth at the end but it might just be my imagination.
