NEW RELEASE: Mikkeller Chipotle Porter

Mikkeller released this beer in the United States earlier this year, and at launch pretty much all in Texas.  That’s where this beer took on the name Mikkeller, Texas Ranger.  Its an American porter brewed with chipotle peppers.   Now anyone that went to SweetWater Brewing’s Brew Your Cask Off found out quickly that brewing with chili peppers isn’t easy to do unless you know how to do it.  Mikkeller on the other hand, knows how to do it.  Love porters and heat? Look no further.

Commercial Description:
Interaction between the American hops, malt, the complex structure and the warming chili makes this porter a very special and very complex beer.
Look forward to tasting this cowboy beer.

Style: American Porter

Taste Expectations: Cocoa powder, chocolate, roasted malts, coffee . Its smooth & thick, with a touch of hops finishing with chili pepper heat.  Its complex & fun.

Availability: 22oz Champagne bottles.
