Great beer! Complex aroma of chocolate, bourbon, chili and tobaco. The taste is similar. The bourbon was just a little bit to dominating for my taste but otherwise really good! The best Texas Ranger!

Exceptionally good port/vegetable beer. Slight chilli warming taste and surprisingly smooth. Glad to try this treat from the other side of the globe, drank on a hot aussie day but probably better for a cooler day.
