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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark, black even, with tan head that doesnít hang around for long.
Aroma is intense with coffee, herbs, sugar.
Taste has roasted malts, not as much sweetness as in aroma. Spicy, very peppery.
Of course, this is a chilibeer, which i didnít notice before the tasting :)

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.

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.
