22oz bottle. Very dark, black color. Very boozy nose! Loads of high cacao dark chocolate, hints of barrel aging smell as well. Charred flavor, burnt grains & sugars, fusel/booze. Finishes with notes of cocoa. It’s a big beer, needs to be shared, too much for just one person! (4258)

Bottle from Hop City, Atlanta. Pours a rich, dark brown, little to no head. Aroma lots of cocoa, Hershey’s baking chocolate. Body lithe, slippery, roasty, slight boozy bite. Overall, really well-balanced, with a lingering roasty bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle and served in snifter: Pours a deep colour, near opaque with a fading head (likely cocoa oils causing that), zero head retention or lace. A bit brash with heavy roast and char with dark chocolate overtones. Some herbal and piney hop notes in addition to the faint prune, fig, and leathery notes. Still the body seems a tad too thin for the flavor profile, not overly complex despite what wrote before. Drinkable

Bomber. Pours a thick black with a frothy mocha colored head. Aroma is so sweet. Loads of cocoa, caramel, and roasted malts. Sweet chocolatey goodness wraps around the palate. It’s so thick and creamy. Sweetness is balanced out by a nice butter tingle on the finish. Pretty enjoyable. ABV is hidden very well.
