pours motor oil black with lots of coffee tan head. Smells sweet, rich and boozy, with lots of wood. Nice and smooth up front with almost a sweet wood and whiskey aftertaste. I don’t get a ton of spice but that might be from the age of the bottle very interesting flavour non the less.

Having had the non-specific ’Barrel Aged’ some time ago (pre-Ratebeer) and declaring it one of the finest drinks available to humanity, i was understandably looking forward to this! Not sure I can detect what the Speyside casks have added - it’s still the lovely, rich, well-balanced drink I remember, with just a hint of heat coming through from the chilies tickling your tongue on the finish. The smoke works so well with the overall malt-bill, the hop bitterness is just right. Damn fine porter.

ngeunit1 (1555) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 30, 2013
A - Dark black with a hint of brown and a thin finger of frothy khaki-chocolate colored head. Fades fairly quickly. S - Sweet dark chocolate malts, oak, vanilla, whiskey, chipotle, roasted coffee, black licorice, bit of molasses, some booze. T - Sweet dark chocolate malts, bit of milk chocolate, vanilla, oak, Whiskey lightly spicy chipotle peppers, roasted coffee, black licorice, molasses, and a bit of booze. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a spicy, warming, and sweet finish. D - Nice spicy porter. The chipotle adds some nice heat and the barrel adds some nice complexity.

Pours an opaque black colour with a very fine light brown ring around the glass. Aromas of scotch, oak, chocolate, sweet maltiness. Flavours of chocolate, oak, lighter than the regular on the chipotle peppers, little coffee, smooth scotch flavour.

Reimer96 (1167) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 6, 2013
Pours a dark opaque black with a small brown ring. Aroma is of wood, sweet fruits, malted whiskey & some peatiness. Taste is oak, whiskey, faint coffee, sweet dried fruits and then chipotle pepper on the finish that gives a nice warming/burning in the back of your throat. This barrel aged beer helps take the chipotle pepper edge off from the original and is exceptionally smooth.

Garlic_of_Doom (394) - SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2013
Bottle from Barleywine. Pours dark brown with no head to speak of. Aroma is pretty much like regular Texas Ranger, dark chocolate, loads of roasted malts, but with faint whiskey notes. Taste is a lot like the regular version but almost completely lacks the chili after a few sips, quite strange. The barrel ageing added whiskey notes and some dry woody notes which sits nice with the other tastes but they could have been more prominent. Too bad that the chili wasn’t that forward but perhaps it just was this bottle.

@ Mikkeller Bar: Mycket stor fatdoft, smaken faller bort lite, men trevlig kryddighet och ganska kladdig
