3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Anvil Houston 7/30/10. Black with a big tan head. Nose is chocolate with a light peppery aroma. Taste is very sharp and the peppers come out strong. Tangy and hot with some coffee flavors. Very dry. Body is medium and fluffy. Interesting but a glass was enough-a bomber needs to be shared.

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.

Bottle at Barbers fake Christmas day do, bought from Brewtique, Macclesfield. Poured very dark brown with a brown head. Aroma I’m really liking the hint of chilli, chocolate, leather. Flavour is roasted malts, chocolate, some smoke, I really liked the amount of chilli kick in the flavour too. I love chilli and I love chilli beer when done right like this. Interesting and tasty.

I remember how I drunk it for the first time. It was crazy hot and I thought I never could finish it, even tho I love beer and I love chili..
Now.. Now I find it well balanced with roasted malt background, some pleasantly warming chili and black coffee notes.Moderate sweetness with moderate bitterness.I wonder.. if it really is the same beer as it was 3 years ago, because now it really feels way less chili

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.

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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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!

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
