maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours viscour black with a small mocha head. Lasts duration and leaves some spotty lacing. Sweet vanilla and dark, bitter chocolate mingle with green herbal tones and spiced whiskey. Lots of peppers at the back end of it all. Quite complex. Dark cocoa powder on the tongue to begin with. The peppers come in and out on the palate with quick additions of light whiskey, chocolate, and back end herbal tones. Quite easy drinking even with the slight heat at the back end of palate. Nice carbonation. The beer comes together nicely. So far these texas ranger beers have been fantastic and this is no exception drowland (9184) - Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2012
2/25/12. Bottle I shared at RBWG 2012. Black pour with a small tan head. Bold aroma full of peat with some charcoal and chocolates. Slightly sweet chocolate entry followed by a boatload of peaty smokiness and then a bit of charcoal. Not bad. djd07 (16307) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2012

Black color, with dark brown head, not persistent. Mild aroma of sweet chocolate, and light roasted malts, covered by something that seems ripe apples. Medium body; with the dark chocolate flavor there is a light fruity sweetness that seems out of place; the chili pepper is present in mild form, providing a gentle feeling, comparable to the alcohol in other beers; medium alcohol feeling, that may be given by the whiskey cask.
Chaotic beer, lacking of cohesion.
Solid, medium sized brown head with very good retention and some spotty lace.Appears to be black in color. Heaven knows its actually brown, sheesh. nose of chocolate, light smoke, pepper and roast. Body is almost medium, lil oily, soft carbonation. Thin whisky flavors along with light roasted pepper notes, light chocolate and woody otes. Fleeting, smokey roasty finish. Really thought the regular version more enjoyable. Bottle from statelineliquors. zvikar (6575) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - FEB 3, 2012

Pours pitch black with a thick mocha head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma has rich chocolate, a hint of dark fruit, and mildly boozy whiskey notes. Flavor has bitter bakers chocolate, a subtle hint of dark fruit, and mildly smoky roastiness with just a hint of oak and a hint of peppery burn. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry, very roasty, bitter finish that has just a hint of smoky burn. Interesting beer! pentaz (1292) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2012
