Tasted from bottle with grateful thanks to sunevdj. It was very kind of him to bring me this all the way from Denmark and greatly appreciated. Deep, dark black with just the slightest touch of a russet colour in the dimple with a coffee coloured head that sat thickly to the sides of the glass. Smells deeply of chocolate malt, molasses and coffee with just a hint of green chilli there. In the mouth it is thick, viscous, oily and silky and after the first sophisticated chocolate malt flavour thereís a fiery onslaught of chilli heat. It isnít overwhelming, but you know itís there. Black coffee starts to come to the party along with a gentle fizz that makes itself known. The mature dark flavours and the chilli endure for an age. A remarkable beer and one Iíll remember.

Pours with a tan head that wonít die. Nose is toffee chocolate. Smooth body - lots of chocolate and a blast from the chillis on the back of the palate. This heat lasts a while, but is more than tolerable. Well integrated and on the whole a great beer. Youíll either love it or hate it - obviously I am of the former.

Texas Ranger pours pitch black. Small tan head is poured. Good retention and no lacing. The smell on this beer isnít huge on chipotle. Instead itís mixed in there nicely with some sweet chocolate and slight roasted malt. In the taste is where the Chipotle takes over and I loved it. Itís hot. It added up more and more as you are drinking it. I didnít want to put my glass down. The other ingredients sometimes peek through the chili. Smokiness, chocolate, roasted malt. But the chili is the key here. I can see this being to much for some people but for me it was great. The mouthfeel is bordering between light and medium. Low carbonation. Burning adds up more and more as you drink this one. Burns the mouth and the throat as it goes down.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Damn this beer is insanely good... And unique. Perfect pour - black with a thick, heavily tanned head leaving lots of spotty lacing. Nose shows a ton of dark cocoa powder with a finish of green peppers and vanilla. Solid, very balanced porter to begin with. Heavy cocoa in the taste with a very lengthy chillie burn on the finish. Iím not a huge fan of chillie but this works brilliantly. Damn hot as well ! Lingers forever. Damn fantastic beer

Tap @ Cardinal. The first thing that hitís you when you drink this is: "WOW". and "wow" is how you best can explain this beer. Itís fantastic and itís one of the best beers iíve tasted so far. Itís a solid porter with notes of dark chocolate. After a while a subtle burn from the chilies begin to linger in the back of the throat. Itís a a pleasant burn. A great beer to experience!

Kronebryg (1124) - Sorgenfri, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2012
Draft at YNWA: Fine light brown head, lasting, colour is black. Light elegangt nose were the chili is only vaguely evident. A bit dissapointing as it is light with some chockolate pudding. Medium body and long burning taste. nice soft entry with some chockolate and bitternes and then BANG - the chili hits you. Weird and fine that I dont have to try it againe...

I hate to say it, bc I have loved every Mikkeller beer Iíve ever had, but this beer sucks. Itís not the chipotle, itís not the barrel aging, it just tastes like a bad recipe, and I couldnít quite finish the bottle. It was well packaged, presented cold, well carbonated, and just foul tasting, very vegetal, and no chipotle notes at all. Not sure where it went wrong, but itís sooo bad.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Taster at DBS. Full flavor of spicy chocolate/coffee malt. Flavor sticks around in the throat, like hot peppers in Mexican food. Had a distinct bitter flavor. Good beer, but bring the TUMS. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
