33 cl bottle.tiong (7513) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 21, 2012
Pours black color with small beige head on the sides. Aroma of peat, tar, ash, chocolate notes and roasted malts. Flavor of chipotle chili, roasted malts, ash dry chocolate and some berry notes. Could be much richer on flavors and not just the chili.
330ml bottle from Drink Shop, TallinnFrenger (367) - Derby, Alabama, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2012
Pours pitch black with a small light brown head. Aroma is roasty and spicy with notes of chocolate, coffee and chili. Taste is slightly roasty and quite spicy with some chili notes, chocolate and coffee. Finish is roasty and warming with chili notes. Probably the most warming of the chili beers I’ve tasted, but the chili notes are still quite well balanced.
Bottle from brewdog nottingham. Well smokey. Best aroma ever. Lingering smoke taste in the throat. Ace. DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2012
To take the taste of a Morrisons Hot Cross Ale away. Oily, pitch beer with a huge, filthy, caramel head falling fast. Smouldering charcoal, espresso, charred spiced meats aroma with a ripe berry, blackcurrant undertow. Black and slick with deep, burnt earthy husk; coffee citrus, high cocoa bitterness, blackcurrant. Warm linger; some creeping black pepper heat. Molasses tackiness; sugar on the lips.Quite a beer.

Dark black pour, head was big and light brown. On the nose its chocolate and lots of chili. I get almost a spicy hop smell, probably just the peppers though. On the taste the heat hits fist then a smokey, roasted flavour that seems to stay around. I’m not a fan of smokey beers but overall great brew.

Bottle from sledutah, Secret Santa 2011. Labeled "Chipotle Porter". Pours dark brown with tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and chili peppers. Roasted malt and chocolate flavors, with chipolte peppers. A little smokey with moderate chili heat that hits you in the back of the throat. Heat lingers a little. Very nice! Thanks Craig.

Jet black oily pour with a dark tan cap. Strong smoked wood and chili pepper aromas. Sweet, spicy and smoky. The TR chili heat really catches you at the back of your throat. Wow this really heats up your mouth and slaps you around. Hints of chocolate and coffee are present but the chili lingers long after you swallow and I suspect will linger for the rest of the weekend. Texas Ranger is a massive, earthy beer with a huge amount going on. It's incredibly intense and enjoyable, but I wouldn't dare crack another straight after one.

Pours deep brown with a luxuriant tan head. Coffee and a bit of spice on the nose. Deep rich chocolate flavour, a gritty coffee undertaste and a lot of chilli kicks through immediately. The chilli lingers, rolling around with an almost Irish coffee sensation to create something quite unique. Delicious. Each mouthful is fascinating, from the lathering chocolate to the roasted chilli. A "special" beer though, wouldn’t choose it for everyday drinking, however. eeez (47) - Thatcham, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
Pours thick with a brown head, aroma is minimal. Tastes smokey with primary flavours being roasted malts and smoke. Chilli heat appears last warming the throat.

Deep dark chocolate liquer aromas. Pours black in the glass. Nice lacing from the caramel colored head. Flavor profile of sweet dark cocoa, dried fruits, espresso and a slight peppery aftertaste. A few seconds after swallowing, i can detect the spicy notes from the chipotle. Overall, this is a very tasty brew. Glad I have access to more...
