dnicolaescu (1981) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 17, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Opaque black, espresso head. At just 6,6, the aroma is of a „big” impy - rich sweet dark chocolate and cocoa, coffee and molasses. Notes of spicy chilies and, especially, some smoke. The taste follows the aroma (though, it is not as big): classic chocolate/cocoa, the sweetness is easily balanced by burnt woody notes as well as roasty acidity ans light grassy hops. You can barely feel the heat of the chilies. Medium, smooth body. Very good.

BeerBaboon (1964) - FINLAND - JUN 27, 2012
Texas Ranger kaatuu lasiin mustana ja muodostaa ylleeen ruskean vaahdon. Näyttää nätiltä lasissa kauneine vaahtoineen. Tuoksussa on paahtunutta mallasta, suklaata ja kahvia. Maussa on hieman polttelevaa chiliä, paahtunutta mallasta, kahvia ja tummaa suklaata. Tässä on myös kuivaa katkeruutta. Olut on yllättävän paksu ja keskihapokas. Tässä oluessa tulisuus ei ole samallalailla kiusaavaa kuin esimerkiksi inkivääriä sisältävissä juomissa. Ne saavat sinut janoamaan jotakin muuta juotavaa, mutta tämä olut saa sinut janoamaan lisää Texas Rangeria. Tämä olut on täyttä Chuck Norrisia.

Draft. Deep dark mahogany. Creamy light brown head. Dry. Lighter medium bodied. Silky smooth. Peppers layered in perfectly, especially in aroma. Chocolate, cocoa round things out with touches of licorice and molasses. A light roast and just enough sweetness to go along with the moderate heat and light smokiness from the peppers. Top notch.

NordicV (1946) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2014
Nästan helt svart öl med ett lättare brunt skum. Doft av rostad malt noter av kaffe och mörk choklad. Detta återkommer i smaken med viss aksa. I eftersmaken så dyker det upp balanserad chili-hetta. Jag har ofta svårt för öl där chilin tar överhanden. Här samarbetar den med övriga smaker.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 28, 2010
750ml bottle. Pours a nice deep chocolate brown that settles in black in the glass. The head is tan, thick and enormous, refusing to go anywhere and leaves sheets of lacing. The aroma is massively roasted with almost a burnt malt character. Plenty of cocoa powder and only the faintest hint of chipotle pepper, though it does grow as it warms. The taste is much like the aroma except for the finish. The start is all about the black malts, heavily roasted, with chocolate and hints of espresso. But the finish is where it gets interesting with the pepper flavors coming out and leaving a serious burn on the palate after each sip. The mouthfeel is smooth and close to full bodied for a normal porter. This thing almost has the feel of a Baltic porter, which is impressive given the ABV. There is certainly no doubt that Mikkel knows his way around stouts and porters and this is one of the more interesting ones I’ve had. It’s a big, robust porter with a big dose of peppers in the taste. Certainly not the most drinkable porter, but very complex and tasty for a porter.

Butelka, warka do 18/01/20. wysoka ciemna piana, niebrzydka, ciemno brazowe piwo. aromaty glownie czekolada, i to urozmaicona, w sensie a la bombonierka, z marcepanem, karmelem, owocami kandyzowanymi i jakimis innymi tego typu nutami. do tego dochodzi nieco zywicznosci, ciut a la black ipa. w ustach niby jest analogia, ale faktycznie papryczki szybko przejmuja kontrole, w posmakach juz dominujac. niemalo ciala, niewielkie wysycenie, nieco popolowa konsystencja. klasa.

JDBaker11058 (1935) - Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2012
Appearance: deep near-black with a huge, rocky, creamy dark tan head that very slowly shrank to a thick cap and collar, with generous lace rings. Aroma: strong notes of chocolate, a whiff of coffee, growing notes of pine as it warms, and some black pepper. Taste: dark bitter chocolate, followed by roasty (almost burnt) coffee and pine, with black pepper spice. Finish: slowly rising (but low-burning) chipotle heat, with a chalky-dry mouth. Notes: Awesome. I’ve tried a handful of beers made with peppers (chipotles, acho chilis, etc) and this is by far the best and most nuanced. It’s really just a great porter with some nice chipotle notes that add depth, spice, and adventure without overpowering or dominating the backbone of the beer. Incredible palate as well: smooth and creamy, almost like liquid velvet, which really lets the flavors shine and the peppers sparkle. Bottled as Chipotle Porter, bottle from the Perfect Pour in Columbia, Maryland.

Yorker (1934) - Herning, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with some sediment and a tan head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate, and chilli. Flavour is roasted malt and a huge, delicious chilli bite.

Thick black pour with a creamy brown head. Aroma of chili peppers, chocolate and espresso. Flavor is great chocolate and roasty espresso with a bit of the peppers coming through. Awesome.
