On tap The Rover, Göteborg. Dark Brown, almost black. Aroma of dark chocolate. Taste real spicy (chili) but still it is a stout with bitterness in the finish. Really good, but i am not sure if i can separate this one from Mikkeller Hot Rod. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33 cl bottle from a Selver in Tallinn (€ 4,59). Pours a beautiful black with a huge dark brown head that stays and laces nicely. Nose is intoxicating - it’s dark bittersweet chocolate with roasty malts, some spiciness and certain vanilla subtlety, some hoppiness, and faint notes of tart red berries deep there too. Taste begins with a surprisingly smooth, sweet chocolate that the hot spiciness of chipotle quickly crashes into. The chipotle intensifies during many seconds, then calms down to leave a spicy / hoppy, near-burnt warmth in the throat. It has a medium plus body, slightly syrupy and sticky texture, quite soft carbonation, and a long, spicy finish. I’m a sucker for stuff like this.

Percy0103 (182) - MEXICO - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle, 375ml. A pitch black beer with a big brown creamy head. Aroma is of dark chocolate, nuts and lots of spices, especially chipotle and maybe even habanero. Taste is sour and has lots of spices. There is almost no carbonation and considerable astringency. Heavy smoked character. Aftertaste is strong and I could feel the chipotle very well. This is truly a spicy beer. Not for everyone, but definitely a great choice for those who like spicy flavors and are used to them.

Sdaniel90 (387) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle, 375ml. Opaque dark brown with a thick brown head. Smoky aroma of roasted malt, vanilla, dried fruits, coffee and alcohol. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth smoked character with a spicy aftertaste. Low sweetness with a subtle, but heavy bitterness. Acidic and spicy, with a clear chipotle and smoked finish. Not my style but very interesting and complex.

I’m gonna have to side with Cybercat on this one. This just may be the best porter I’ve ever had! Looks great, smells great, feels great, tastes great. A pleasant low-intensity heat sticks around in the back of the throat, especially as the beer warms. Mikkeller does Porter well (their stright Porter and the barreled version of this brew are excellent as well) but this one takes the cake. 4.5 seemed high, but nothing deserved an 8...at least 9 across the board. Wonderful aroma of roasted malt, peppers, and some dark cocoa and coffee, subtle smoke...tastes much the same and the feel is near perfect, and rather robust, for a 6.6% beer. Absolutely LOVE this brew, though it comes with a hefty pricetag."

A rich, sweet aroma with a malt bill to match before just the right amount of chilli (a difficult thing to do). This is like a Malt Madras with the sharp, hot finish giving an unusual finish. This is an excellent beer, certainly not a gimmick. Rated by BrewTom

robto (13) - Belas, PORTUGAL - SEP 10, 2014
33cl bottle at "cerveteca" bar in Lisbon. Pours a very black color with a big and quite decent beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, black coffee, very dark chocolate and some vanilla. Taste begins a little sweet with heavy roasted malt, coffee, cocoa, and finishes with coffee bitter and a tiny hint of heat at the end of the tongue from the chilli. It is softly carbonated with a full body. A very tasty beer indeed. I recommend it to everyone that are into porters.

Detta är en recension. Här skriver jag vad jag tycker om Mikkeller Texas Ranger utifrån de kriterier och krav jag anser skäliga att resa. Detta är alltså resonemanget jag för och pass på, nu landar jag i en slutsats som ni antingen instämmer i eller invänder mot, eller bådadera. Nu är recensionen hur som helst slut.

This beer is brewed with Chipotle Peppers and you actually can feel the spice on your tongue! It’s more porterish than I would want, but stil

Een bier dat absoluut mijn ding niet is. Een heel speciale smaak dat je echt moet lusten
