Mikkeller Mexas Ranger
Mikkeller Mexas Ranger is a Herbed/Spiced Beer, our best guess puts this at a little over 1 year of age. Team BDR affectionately referred to this as the burrito beer before choosing it for podcast 20. Brewed with spices, almond milk, cocoa, chili, black beans & avocado leaves, then aged in tequila barrels. This pours like a dark porter, in fact I would just go ahead and call this a porter or stout. Very dry with a bit of chocolate, the dryness might be coming from the black beans as I am getting a good earthiness from the beer. Any chili or other spices are not evident, or have faded with time. I have no idea what avocado leaves bring to the table. I did get a little bit of tequila in the taste right there at the finish. I have to say this was kind of a disappointment, not because it was a bad beer, but with those wacky ingredients I was expecting something so much more… well wacky!
