DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2012
To take the taste of a Morrisons Hot Cross Ale away. Oily, pitch beer with a huge, filthy, caramel head falling fast. Smouldering charcoal, espresso, charred spiced meats aroma with a ripe berry, blackcurrant undertow. Black and slick with deep, burnt earthy husk; coffee citrus, high cocoa bitterness, blackcurrant. Warm linger; some creeping black pepper heat. Molasses tackiness; sugar on the lips.Quite a beer.

Dark black pour, head was big and light brown. On the nose its chocolate and lots of chili. I get almost a spicy hop smell, probably just the peppers though. On the taste the heat hits fist then a smokey, roasted flavour that seems to stay around. I’m not a fan of smokey beers but overall great brew.

Bottle from sledutah, Secret Santa 2011. Labeled "Chipotle Porter". Pours dark brown with tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and chili peppers. Roasted malt and chocolate flavors, with chipolte peppers. A little smokey with moderate chili heat that hits you in the back of the throat. Heat lingers a little. Very nice! Thanks Craig.

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 13, 2012
Jet black oily pour with a dark tan cap. Strong smoked wood and chili pepper aromas. Sweet, spicy and smoky. The TR chili heat really catches you at the back of your throat. Wow this really heats up your mouth and slaps you around. Hints of chocolate and coffee are present but the chili lingers long after you swallow and I suspect will linger for the rest of the weekend. Texas Ranger is a massive, earthy beer with a huge amount going on. It's incredibly intense and enjoyable, but I wouldn't dare crack another straight after one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

buzz_and_hum (153) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 10, 2012
Pours deep brown with a luxuriant tan head. Coffee and a bit of spice on the nose. Deep rich chocolate flavour, a gritty coffee undertaste and a lot of chilli kicks through immediately. The chilli lingers, rolling around with an almost Irish coffee sensation to create something quite unique. Delicious. Each mouthful is fascinating, from the lathering chocolate to the roasted chilli. A "special" beer though, wouldn’t choose it for everyday drinking, however.

eeez (47) - Thatcham, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
Pours thick with a brown head, aroma is minimal. Tastes smokey with primary flavours being roasted malts and smoke. Chilli heat appears last warming the throat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

llcooldave (1187) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2012
Deep dark chocolate liquer aromas. Pours black in the glass. Nice lacing from the caramel colored head. Flavor profile of sweet dark cocoa, dried fruits, espresso and a slight peppery aftertaste. A few seconds after swallowing, i can detect the spicy notes from the chipotle. Overall, this is a very tasty brew. Glad I have access to more...

DuffMan (8801) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 1, 2012
Bottle. Very dark brown, opaque really, with a slowly rising brown head that doesn’t stay long. Aroma is sweet and roasty with some vegetal undertones. Flavour of big roast, coffee, and dark toffee with a nice fruity acidity that comes in late, followed by a prickly tingly peppery heat at the back of the throat. The peppers really shine in this brew! I had the barrel-aged version first and found no pepper character at all. This was great.

maekchu (3202) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 1, 2012
Bottle from Wombata. Thank you. Wow! Crazy head -- with a swirl, the head grows dark on the edges and tan in the middle. Strong choco aromas with a bit of pepper. Flavors of wood, leather, and mild tingling chiles. Chile aftertaste is long lasting and will be really pleasant to those who like spicy food. This would accompany hearty food very well. Thin-medium body, chewy. Really, it seems like a peppery porter.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2014 Bottle shared by Wombata. Fruity chocolate nose, peppers. A bit stale. Wonderful head on nice black. Sweet flavor of wood and big peppers. Quite a burn, with coffee and leather. Well done, but the chipotles become unpleasant.
