Nocturne (843) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
375ml bottle. Black with a brown head. Deep, powerful aroma of roasty coffee and dark chocolate. Also some cherry and blackberry fruitiness with barrel notes at the edges. On the tongue an initial wash of chocolate drops out abruptly to be replaced by pepper heat. Vanilla only shows up fleetingly and sporadically. It hits a lot of the right notes but does feel pretty muddled at times. Then again it’s must be a hard task to make a beer with these elements come together right, so well done to Mikkeller on this occasion.

rosenbergh (7078) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2014
375 ml bottle. BB 26/01/17. From bierkompass.de.
Pitch black colour with a small chocolatey creamy head. Roasted malt, chocolate, sweetness, mild port wine and some hops in the aroma. The flavour is roasted malt, sweetness, vanilla, chocolate, cocoa and a mild chili burn. I just loved the normal version of Texas Ranger so I thought this would blow my mind... no... it’s just a really sweet version with the chili cut out. Bit of a disappointment really.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2011
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours a thick, opaque black with a light brown head. Sweet vanilla dominates the nose atop some sweet roast. Medium body, dry roast, a little alcohol heat, sweet vanilla and quite some chili burn. Hardly any bitterness. Not bad but a little much with Brandy, chili, vanilla and cocoa. Somewhat confusing! 131011

Mikkeller bar, maj 2012: Mycket trevlig doft. Smaken är lätt, lite söt med tydlig chili och vanilj.

Ungstrup (29484) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2011
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, vanilla, and cocoa. The flavor is sweet with notes of wood, cocoa, roasted malt, and chili, leading to a dry chili and cocoa finish.
