@ACBF 2011. Hints of vanilla behind the solid base of the Ranger Barrel. Mild and easy to drink. Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 30, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown color with a small cream head. Aroma has roast, oak, pepper, chili, harsh liquorice, vanilla, cocoa and some velvety coffee-stuff as well. Taste is spicy with the chili. Also vanilla, smooth brandy, coffee, cocoa nibs and more vanilla. Very nicely balanced. The oak adds a nice underlying sweetness which ties the whole thing together.

Pours black with a chocolately brown head. Aroma is smoke, sweet wood, roasted malts, vanilla, milky chocolate, toasted bread, spice and some coffee. Taste is coffee, cocoa beans, vanilla, strong striking chili burn, smoke, dark bitter chocolate and coffee. A really big beer with a low ABV. I think this beer should be shared and enjoyed over a strong mexican dinner! tiong (7517) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 11, 2011
