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.

Thick black pour, chocolate brown pour. Aroma hits with some chili peppers, chocolate, espresso. Flavor is lightly spiced with some great chocolate notes and espresso roast coming out. Bitter chocolate finish. Awesome.

SPDickerman (1112) - Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2010
UPDATED: APR 8, 2011 Pours dark brown/black with a frothy dark tan head. The aroma is very strong of peppers and might be called a little overbearing. Does not taste like your normal porter. Spiciness is prominent and flavorful while still having those favorable characteristics of a classic porter. Full-bodied and smooth, not too thick, and less than average carbonation. Finishes with a lasting spicy tingle.

Beerdrinker79 (1968) - Idaho, USA - MAR 26, 2011
750 ml. bottle- Pours pitch black with a nice creamy mocha tan head and spiderweb lacing, beautiful beer. The aroma is very chocolatey with a spiciness in the background, peppery. The flavor is peppery up front, followed by chocolate, then smoky peppers (chipotles) and wood, very interesting. There is a definite jalapeno burn, especially in the back of the throat, this is one of the most interesting beers I have had in a long time, very experimental. The body is thick like chocolate milk, carbonation is low, finish is long, and spicy. Overall I havenít had a beer that I was blown away like this in a long time, a winner for sure, or to quote Charlie Sheen "Winning". Loved it.

poisoneddwarf (2211) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - APR 1, 2011
750 ml bottle into tulip. Pours midnight black with a large lacy dark tan head with awesome retention. Smells of campfire smoke, tobacco, leather, chipotle. Taste is bittersweet with a spicy finish. Spiciness lingers in the throat for a nice long time after the swallow. Carbonation is medium, mouthfeel is creamy, body is medium to full. AWESOME.

Rangi (670) - NEW ZEALAND - APR 23, 2012
Velvet black pour with caramel head. Smokey and caramel with bitter chocolate and spice on the palate. A rich and warming beer with the chilli factor slowly building at the back of the throat and in the stomach.

Trolleo (1162) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 13, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2016 Body is completely dark, huge tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, vanilla, hops, roasted malt, caramel. A bit smokey. Medium to full body, flat to soft carbonation. Finish is long coffee bitter and spicy, followed by a pleasant tingling; this is where chilli first appears. Just wonderful!

Pitch black body, small brown head. Aroma of spices, coffee, roasted malt and some grass. Refreshing taste, chocolate at first, than some chili. Soft carbonation, medium body, bit creamy. Very nice, but Iím not sure this is the same thing as Texas Ranger two years ago.

Samtzu (64) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 25, 2016
330ml bottle. Was not expecting this beer to be what it is. Fantastic beer with prominent vanilla and coffee notes tangled in with Chilli. Potentially diminished chilli flavors due to age.
