thewolf (12372) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 18, 2011
Bottle, bought @ FairBar, Aarhus.
Pours completely black with a lovely, staying, creamy, dark-brown head. Lovely lacings. Aroma has oak, roasted malty goodness, chocolate, sweet vanilla notes, mild flowery hops. A hint of liqourice. Light carbonation, lovely light and still creamy mouthfeel. Flavour starts elegantly sweet, light liqourice peeps through, some good oaky dryness, chocolate, a hint of dry coffee. Clear cocoa-notes, the vanilla much more (thankfully) subdued. Long, sharp, delicious chili burn. So many nuances that still fit together. Very lovely.

rosenbergh (11374) - 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... its just a really sweet version with the chili cut out. Bit of a disappointment really.

sebletitje (9909) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2011
Bouteille @ ACBF 2011. Brune fonce/noire, mousse moka. Arme est assez subtile surtout quand on considre le volume dalcool. Cette bire arrive donc a dvelopper un nez unique et apprciable do se dgage le tonneau, une douceur de vanille et chocolat qui sont videment plus prsents que dans la version rgulire de BA quoique la vanille tait un peu en retrait. Ce qui m a vraiment surpris et enthousiasm sur cette bire est le palais. L, surprise lorsque lon note les pices qui se dgagent. Vanille est douce, un peu de malt fum, fves de cacao donnent une paisseur la bire et tjrs ce fini un peu piment qui est tout bonnement formidable et accompagne parfaitement un palais qui garde une prsence de levure belge. Mme aprs dgustation on garde des lments de chocolat et piment qui sont intenses sans pour cela tre trop piquant, mais assez pour se faire prsent aprs quelques gorges deau.

tderoeck (9193) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2012
7/IV/2012 - 37.5cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ Erwins place - BB: n/a (2012-338) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the bottle!

Dark brown beer, creamy beige to brown head, unstable, little adhesive. Aroma: lots of chocolate, vanilla, bit of smoke. MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: dark chocolate, vanilla, mocha, some chilli, cocoa powder, bit of red berries. Aftertaste: chillies, dark chocolate, mocha, more chillies. Interesting, but a little unbalanced, too much chillies, making it a bit too hot to just drink like that. Should be accompanied by a meal. Maybe a chocolate dessert?
