Before this I had only tried the bourbon barrel version which was quite a disappointment to me. The normal version goes a lot further. It smells great of coffee, dark chocolates and cookies without any real sweetness to it. The body is medium to light and actually feels refreshing. A lot of cold coffee comes though with some spices and a lingering warming sensation of chili that works quite well with the beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle@Håndverkerstuene. Black with a thick, creamy brown head. Good amount of sticky lace. A lot of smoke in the aroma, almost sour smoke, along with nuts, dry cocoa, and some bready notes. A lot of spiciness on the tongue, some chocolate and coffee with smoke, ashes and that heat in the finish. Fittingly thick and creamy with subtle carbonation. Yes, it’s wierd, but it’s good, it’s a cool brew. A whole bottle on my own though, would prove a task.

A nice roasted malt flavor. There are some great coffee and chocolate flavors, along with a nice chipotle bite with very little heat. The finish has some lingering roasted bitterness and a bit of chipotle flavor.

Pours black with a huge creamy lasting brown head. The aroma is strong roasted malt, with a distinctive smoky accent. Quite full bodied, with strong chocolate flavour and the bite of chili increasingly warming the mouth. Lovely thou a bit rough.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2014 Bottle from Hökeren.
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.
Thinner than all previous times, chili has no growing heat for each sip and is overall very weak. Not the usual great flavour either. I’m disappointed. Perhaps just a batch variation.

Mikkeller Texas Ranger. 6,6 % chili stout. ( chipolte chili pris 33 kr. meget lækkert mørkt skum. meget mørk øl. Duft: meget fed i duften, kaffe, kakao, en smule grøn duft ved ikke om det kan være chilien. Smag: stor mundfulde. efter en meget skarp smag af brand malt. og en smule skarp smag af chokolade lige som når man spiser chokolde på 70 %. man smager ikke chilien de første 5 sek med der efter kommer den . en fin røgsmag er der også. meget kompleks øl. denne øl er perfekt
