Black in color with a tan, frothy, bubbly head. Lacing holds very well on the side of the glass. Strong coffee and chocolate aromas. No hops pop out in the smell. Definite spicy kick hits the back of your throat instantly. Very smooth black coffee flavor with a chocolatey texture. A full-bodied beer that leaves your taste buds working overtime. Overall i think spice and a malty beer go very well together. This is the type of beer i am always looking for. YUMMY!!!!!

Cafè, xocolata, fosca com la nit, escuma persistent que es menja i amb un lleuger final picant, molt agradable i llarg. Fantàstica.

Out of all the Mikkeller arrivals this week this is by far the most supported and loved. Chipotle porter ROCKS!!!!! Any god fearing Ozzie who loves their chilli tim tams will find this beer right up their alley. The beer pours a picture perfect porter, dark, choclatey in colour with a rich coffee like head on top. Unsure what the balance was going to be like I had to try it straight away and found that the gas did not turn this into a spicy hot chocolate flabby and out of sync, O was I wrong... the suds were in balance with the smoothy choclatey mouthfeel and the chipotle was neither the prima donna or the second fiddle during the entire act. Harmonious construction, lingering spiciness and delicate balance... Hedonistic as this may be, this would rock out as a chicken marinade or like my Friday will be spent: Tim tam slamming a Texan..... YEE HAW!!!!

33 cl bottle. Pours black with a brown head. Spicy aroma with smoke, chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Wow! This is an excellent brew! Initial slightly chocolaty sweetness with coffee, roasted malt and hints of smoke. If you roll it around in your mouth and let it rest for a while before swallowing the chili will burn. Burn, baby, burn! Prickling and tingling sensation with increasing burning sensation. This is the real deal. Without a doubt the best chili beer I’ve tried. Delicious and well balanced. Medium to full bodied with a smooth an velvety mouthfeel. Love to roll it around and let the chili burn. This is the first time I’ve had a beer that I just can’t stop rolling around in my mouth. It’s a good thing I’m at home and not in a bar. Amazing beer! Should probably be a 5.0er because I can’t find any flaws. Nice and long burning sensation with a chocolaty chipotle aftertaste.

JDBaker11058 (1282) - Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2012
Appearance: deep near-black with a huge, rocky, creamy dark tan head that very slowly shrank to a thick cap and collar, with generous lace rings. Aroma: strong notes of chocolate, a whiff of coffee, growing notes of pine as it warms, and some black pepper. Taste: dark bitter chocolate, followed by roasty (almost burnt) coffee and pine, with black pepper spice. Finish: slowly rising (but low-burning) chipotle heat, with a chalky-dry mouth. Notes: Awesome. I’ve tried a handful of beers made with peppers (chipotles, acho chilis, etc) and this is by far the best and most nuanced. It’s really just a great porter with some nice chipotle notes that add depth, spice, and adventure without overpowering or dominating the backbone of the beer. Incredible palate as well: smooth and creamy, almost like liquid velvet, which really lets the flavors shine and the peppers sparkle. Bottled as Chipotle Porter, bottle from the Perfect Pour in Columbia, Maryland.

77ships (3935) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2012
15 cl. draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft // pours black with a dark mocha head // smells like dark, seriously roasted malts, chilli, bitter chocolate & black coffee // initially the taste starts out with a heavy, bitter, strongly roasted layer of malts, cocoa, spices, light liquorish, black chocolate, the roast intensifies in the finish and you suddenly get the spicy burst, Thai chilli & chipotle, serious spiciness but enjoyable & the dark roast holds up, the beer fades & a brief enjoyable burns stays in your mouth, unbalanced balance // touch grainy roast body, substantial, between creamy & oily, going to soft carb. // more in your face than the BA version, wonderfully in your face & actually good beyond the burn unlike other chilli beers, I have besides the two Texas Ranger versions // very impressive stuff

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

Kita (1093) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l, shared with Hoppiness crew. Murky dark brown color with medium creamy light brown head and nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, dried fruits with some peppery hints. Taste starts with moderate sweet and rich roasted malt, follows by chocolate note and fruity acidity. When beer gets warmer chipotle chili peppers break loose and create warming and tingling spicy mouthfeel, while spiciness is still present in medium bitter aftertaste. Full body, syrupy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Above excellent...
