Whew! This is a big delicious beer! It pours jet black with a dark brown head. Aroma is coffee, Mocha, dark Chocolate. Mouth feel is sticky and velvety. Taste is awesome, roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. Clocking in a 10%ABV this beer is definitely a sipper, but a sipper that you cannot put down!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours an inky black body with a small thin fizzy dark brown head that faded to a few small bubbles. The nose is really chocolaty and decadent with some rich roasted malt, sweetness, and some moderate alcohol notes. The flavor is a little too sweet for my tastes, the burnt caramel and chocolate notes come on a little too heavy and strong. Add in the effect of the heat from the 10% ABV and you donít exactly get a very easy drinking beer. Finishes with a bit of burnt roasted malt, coffee, and alcohol. Medium bodied, a bit sticky and clingy, especially on the finish. Itís a decent beer, but not something that Iím going to treasure drinking a full bomberís worth.

Draft at craft ale house. Pours pitch black with a medium sized brown head. This looks like a float. Gorgeous. The aroma is Starbucks style. Big mocha notes, light roast, a lot of lactose. The taste has a big roasty kick up front, a huge coffee bean run, sweet finish. Great sticky palate. Awesome.
