Mikkeller Chipotle Porter

About the beer: Mikkeller Brewery from Denmark is out to excite Danish taste buds, break a few rules and inspire all around. With a mission like that, it’s no wonder they were named Danish brewery of the year during their first year and the fifth best brewery in the world, all in their first year of production. Their concoction on display for this week’s installment is the Chipotle Porter (known as Texas Ranger over on their home shores). Clocking in at 7.7% ABV, this beer is brewed with Chipotle chili peppers, and was brewed particularly for the Texan audience, though it can be found elsewhere in the states.

Needless to say Big Worst packs quite a wallop – I even had trouble finishing the half of the bottle I shared with fellow Beeriety writer Sarah.
