3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma is roasted malts, dark fruit, and hints of chocolate. Pours a deep dark black with a mostly lasting eautiful dark tan head and no lacing. The taste is burnt malt, hints of coffeee bitterness and a slow chipotle burn. Excellant. Medium-full body with soft carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel and a pleasing burn on the finish. Overall, this is a well crafted brew. While peppery beer are not my favorite style, this was enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black beer with a nice holding light brown head. Decent mixture off malts, roasted coffee, sugar and a decent amount of spices. Dry and earthy alcoholic and spiced finish. Good, but misses something, a small sweetness boost maybe. Good peppery finish.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle picked up at StateLine. Label says Chipotle Porter: Intially shared by robert. This bottle was consumed at home. Pours into a snifter, oily black in color, great mocha colored two finger head. Looks like a stout. Aroma of smoke, light ash, earthy notes with some pepper/spiceyness. Taste is great, intially some chocolate and roasted malts hits the front of your palate, then a nice smokiness and ash comes through. Light coffee. Not sugary or sweet at all. But well balanced. Very smooth.... rolls right down the hatch. Then the after taste has strong smokiness, campfire with some smoked meats....earthy... with the perfect amount of chipotle staying on the lips and lighting a small fire in the back of the throat. Awesome. Texture is creamy smooth. For only 6.5 percent this beer has tons of flavor. Overall: RB has it as a spice/herb/veg, mikkeller says a porter, but its very stout like. Great beer no matter what its called. Get some! Now! Thanks Roberto!

330ml bottle. pours a slightly murky brown with a thin tanned head. aroma is a little odd. slightly nutty, sweet and bready. but the taste does as described. chipotle chilli is hidden well at first but comes through after a minute or two. not overpowering and just a little spice. nice.

Texas Ranger is SUCH a good stout until the pointless chilli peppers come through, then it is kind of a semi-abomination. I’m ignoring the stupidly incongruous pepper oils to focus on the gorgeous chocolate and cocoa. Maybe I need this with something savory-bland like tandoori chicken or white artichoke pizza to make the pepper palate and throat burn less annoying. Another Mikkeller I’d never fall for again... full marks for appearance.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Jag har drucket en likanande öl innan, ’Chili’ från Helsingborgs bryggeri. Jag var inte alls imponerad av deras öl även om den var relativt innovativ och jag är lite osäker på huruvida jag gillar denna eller inte. Jag gillar den mörka rostade smaken och den krämiga och bastanta kroppen, men jag gillar inte känslan av chili i halsen. Om chilin hade varit försiktigare så hade ölen varit avsevärt mycket bättre.
doftar lite ketchup

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle Very nice nose -- almost a mole-like aroma. Dark, dark, dark, with an espresso head. Flavor is dry and complex -- there’s a lot of roasty notes, chocolate, a touch of licorice. The peppers really kick in on the finish; I feel them in my throat more than taste them. Very nice beer.

750ml bottle - labeled Chipotle Porter.
I’ve been wanting to try this one for some time now - dark black color with some tan head. Aromas of cocoa, some nutiness and smoke. Flavor is incredible! Some sweetness, chocolate flavors - some heat from the peppers but in no way overpowering. Increasing spiciness as it lingers - very unique.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On keg at Brewdog, pours as a thick textured black imperial stout, with chocolate malts, toasted coffee, chilli, smoked vegetable, all coming together well in a smooth finish. Excellent beer, unusual because of the thick velvety finish for a 6.6%.
