4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2016 Pours black color, slightly haze, with stable creamy brown head. Visually low carbonation.
Aroma: moderate malt aroma, which takes on coffee, bittersweet chocolate, but it is almost overdominated by chilli peppers aroma. That’s the reason, why hop aroma is so hard detectable.
Flavor: intense malt aroma, which takes on espresso coffee, bittersweet chocolate, slightly roasted, and supported with gentle burn of chilli peppers. In the background are hop flavors, which takes on stone fruits, pine and dark fruits.
Finish is slightly chilli pepperish burnt and lingers long in aftertaste.
Body is medium to high, texture is soft, carbonation is low.

330ml Bottle. Black pour with a thin dark sandy foamy head that leaves lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is big on the dark malt, chocolate, roast, and the hints of some spicy peppers is present. Taste is big malt up front, chocolate, molasses. Then the peppers come in at the end giving a lingering spiciness to the brew. Nice full body. Love it.

Thick black pour with creamy brown head (plenty of it, and it lingers). Aroma is rich and stouty - roasted barley, chocolate, leather. Taste is big and bold - great stout which comes across almost as an imperial. Sweetness cut by bitterness and through it all the heat from the chilis. Heat from the chilis replaces the heat from alcohol in stronger stouts. The heat is maybe a bit much in the finish (and I like heat).

A - Pitch black body with a big fluffy mocha head slowly sink to a creamy film.
S - Chipotle comes out immediately along side semi sweet chocolate, coffee grinds, hints of anise, light hickory smoke, and chocolate liqueur.
T - A mix of dark and milk chocolate, with a steady presence of chipotle creating mild heat on the tongue and back of the throat. The pepper becomes more smokey towards the finish.
M - Silky and smooth feel, creamy carbonation, dry and warming finish.
This exceeded my expectations. Perfectly balanced flavors. Chipotle was not over or under used and melded perfectly with the big chocolate malts. I didn’t want the bottle to end. Picked it up out of state, wish I would have bought more than one.
Serving type: bottle

Detta är en recension. Här skriver jag vad jag tycker om Mikkeller Texas Ranger utifrån de kriterier och krav jag anser skäliga att resa. Detta är alltså resonemanget jag för och pass på, nu landar jag i en slutsats som ni antingen instämmer i eller invänder mot, eller bådadera. Nu är recensionen hur som helst slut.

Bottle labeled as Chipotle Porter. Pours black with a large, brown head. Aroma of roasted malts and light chocolate with pepper notes towards the end. Roasted malt and chocolate flavors with chipotle and a little heat towards the end. Similar finish with a more spicy and lingering chipotle note.

Bottle. Thick very dark liquid with tan unsteady head. Minimal sweetness, medium bitterness. Intensive aroma of chocolate with 90% of cocoa. Cocoa in taste, a bit of smoke and chilli peppers. Great one. One of my favorites.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wow, as a realy dark beer this comes on nose surprisingly not roasted malt or burnt dominant, instead aroma seems like smooth balance between spices, noble hopping, creamy, a bit coffe, burnt sugar light sweet, a bit smoked and olny then roasted malt. Pours black with huge brown tan cap, good rounded lacing with good stamina. Elegant! Taste is galacticly far away sweet, burnt or roasted bitter, also medium hopping bitter I sense, and od course spicy, peppery profile. Palate - above mediyum body, oily texture, overruned spicy, a bit astringent on tongue, soft carbonation, long , bitter mild dry finish. O.A. - well it is not beer for everyday, no doubt. Brewed nicely seems to me although it is one time sample, cause peppery id so dominant, it is difficult to enjoy this beer.
