Mikkeller Texas Ranger 
Posted: 30 April 2015  Beer Republic 7.5 
MikkellerTexas Ranger from Denmark This is described as a chipotle chili porter. The chili flavor builds up on this thick dark chocolatey brew, but not so much so that your mouth is every on fire. A bit on the smoky side, too. No worries though. You won't die of lung cancer from drinking this.     
Avg price/liter: USD 21.18   ABV %: 6.6  Type: Porter   
       


On my recent wedding anniversary, my wife and I popped open a bottle of Mikkeller's Texas Ranger.  This is described as a chipotle chili porter.        

The chili flavor builds up on this thick dark chocolatey brew, but not so much so that your mouth is every on fire.  A bit on the smoky side, too.  No worries though.   You won't die of lung cancer from drinking this.       

The Texas Ranger is what I call a lite version of the Mexas Ranger.  They both seem to use the same porter base.  Both clock in at the same 6.6% ABV.  Coincidence?  The Texas Ranger just seems to be simpler in its focus.  The thrust of this brew is the smoky chipotle flavor in the porter, whereas the Mexas has an entire Southwestern garden added to it and multiple types of chilis.     

If you're fond of porters, the Texas Ranger is a nice stroll away from the mainstream.
