Golden orange appearance that has a thick head when poured aggressively, but dissipates leaving a thin layer. Nice and bubbly, well carbonated. Nose is sugary and sweet, almost like a mead. Taste is thick mangoes with a spicy kick in the ass at the end that lingers and builds with each sip. Alcohol seems masked beneath the habanero heat. Thick and juicy mouthfeel. Overall, great stuff, and I'm glad I got two bottles at the release. Will probably get more if I'm able to find it.

750 ml bottle poured into a snifter.
10% ABV,

A - Tiny carbonation bubbles lazily rise through the deep golden-colored beer to it' dense off-white head. The lasting foam lathers dots of lace onto the snifter.

S - Mango Magnifico smells like summer in a glass from it's ripe mango aroma down to the smooth and sweet pilsner malts. A faint suggestion of floral hops dances in on the back end while the habanero and alcohol level remain mysteriously absent until I go in for my first sip when the heat becomes evident.

T - Smooth malt undertones are happy to play second fiddle to the lush and delectable mango fruit flavor, which tastes gloriously all-natural. Habanero punctuates the finish with a nice level of spicy heat.

M - Mango and malt sweetness and combine for a really smooth medium body that has an exceptional level of habanero heat which lingers on the tongue briefly before fading out quietly with lip-smacking dryness.

O - Founders has done it again! Mango Magnifico brilliantly combines ripe, juicy mangoes with a smooth malt backing and lingering habanero heat for an exceptional and complex beer that begs to be both sipped and reflected upon an paired with your favorite cuisine!

25.4oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Glowing deep golden hue, great clarity and a good display of lacing on the glass. Mango pulp, peppery, sweet, bready grain, mild alcohol and cake batter make for an interesting aroma. First sip see the bite of the habanero peppers, mango juicyiness is throughout. Bready malt base, modest hopping. Warming more from the habanero than the alcohol. Heat and some mango in the semi-dry finish.

It is what it says ... a big beer with mango and habanero, nothing more and nothing less. Just enough peppery heat. This beer is crying to be paired with, if not beer brined with a pork loin. Worth a try for sure.
