Bottle from Voldby Koebmandsgaard. Pours very black with a large brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate and smoked dark malts. Taste is dark chocolate, smoked malts and some notes of coffee. Taste ends with the warming chili. The combination of chocolate, smoked malts and chili is perfect. Nice long finish of chocolate and chili. Nice tasty beer.

Pours jet black with tanned head. Roasted malt and some coffee on the nose. Little sweeter taste than I was expecting with dark chocolate and quite a spicy finish that lingers. Pretty interesting beer, quite enjoyable

Aroma was awesome dark malts and peppers. My only complaint about this beer is the sweet stickiness of it. Since when is a porter this sweet? Weird. But this is a great attempt on a difficult thing to pull off. I never would have thought any beer with chipotle peppers could be any good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured a deep black with an enormous mocha head that dissapated slowly leaving intense lacing. Aroma includes roasted malt, smoke, and pepper. Taste begins with coffee and roasted malt before bakers chocolate is introduced leading to a peppery finish with slight chipotle burn on the throat. Nice mouthfeel with smokiness and relatively intense chipotle flavor/burn lingering. Chipotle should have been better balanced (e.g., Stone 11/11/11 blending green chili).

Texas Ranger pours pitch black. Small tan head is poured. Good retention and no lacing. The smell on this beer isnít huge on chipotle. Instead itís mixed in there nicely with some sweet chocolate and slight roasted malt.
In the taste is where the Chipotle takes over and I loved it. Itís hot. It added up more and more as you are drinking it. I didnít want to put my glass down. The other ingredients sometimes peek through the chili. Smokiness, chocolate, roasted malt. But the chili is the key here. I can see this being to much for some people but for me it was great.
The mouthfeel is bordering between light and medium. Low carbonation. Burning adds up more and more as you drink this one. Burns the mouth and the throat as it goes down.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Solid black with a foamy dark tan head and nice lacing. The nose is very rauchy and sausage-like, along with some coffee and cocoa. The flavor starts sweet and rich, followed by some acidity and smokey notes and some bitterness. Finishes medium-hot but still with some malt sweetness. Nice smooth level of carbonation. A very interesting beer - from the initial description I wasnít expecting all the smokey rauchy flavors. Guess I expected a chipotle porter, not a smoked chipotle porter. In any case, though, it was a nice surprise and an enjoyable brew.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2013 Bottle from HŲkeren.
Pours dark brown with a brown head.
This is really something. The aroma is mainly chocolate and some fruit/port/madeira. The taste, oh boy! Burned/roasted malts, some hops (pretty fresh bottle), loads of chocolate, some sweet notes and then...the chili kicks in, bites and hangs on for a long while. One of my favourites. Feels more like a stout than a porter.
Looking forward to see how it will taste after a few years ageing.
Added 120715: Pretty much the same as the last time but with some milk chocolate/cold cocoa drink in taste. Chocolate malts is more prominent this time.

Outstanding chili beer. Nice black color with tan head. Scent is smoky with maybe a hint of the peppers. The spiciness comes out in the aftertaste; the taste itself is that of a nice porter.
