fletchfighters (1028) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2013
Dark brown, bordering on black. Thin, white head, mostly a collar. Cinnamon, lots of chocolate, small amounts of vanilla, and some ancho chile. Besides the nice amounts of chocolate and malt the other flavors were quite muted. Taste is like above. Lots of chocolate but the rest very muted. No chile heat and syrupy vanilla. Lighter bodied and medium carbonation. For all the good ingredients not real well done.

quiznoaz (308) - Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Draft, Costa Mesa Yardhouse. Little head left when served. Dark, but doesn’t appear "thick". Aroma of chocolate and molasses with s hint of cinnamon. Light body, alcohol leads the chocolate and indeterminate spices. Lingers a while. Good.

HopRedHead (339) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours pitch black with short tan head. Aroma is chocolate, big vanilla, cinnamon and spices. Taste lots of milk chocolate, touch of vanilla, light spice and lingering chili heat. Nice thick body. Ugly label, tasty beer!

maneliquor (2992) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours heavy dark brown with a few light brown bubbles as a head. Nose is lots of vanilla and milk chocolate. There is quite a bit of spice on the back end of the aroma which would indicate the chili used. Vanilla swamps the nostrils with a touch of heat in there. Taste is rather balanced for all the ingredients used. Generous vanilla and milk chocolate at the fore front which slowly gets taken over by a driving spice note. It’s definitely chili on the finish, not hot just the flavour. There is a touch of heat but very minimal. It all works very well together. Mouth feel is a little thin but alcohol is hidden very well. Great stuff

IrishBoy (3799) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Bomber from Imbibe Wine. Nose is chocolate, hints of cinnamon and vanilla. Black with a medium heavy lacing cinnamon tan head. Flavor is lightly sweet chocolate with a slight hint of pepperiness from the chiles.

lupulosc (1) - California, USA - MAY 12, 2013 does not count
Bomber from City Beer SF. Pours dark cola with a thin head, Aroma comes through chocolatey with an high degree of artificial overtones (I guess those are the "natural flavors"). Flavor is a God-awful mess of chocolate and...?(I'm guessing vanilla, cinnamon, and chiles, but that's only because that's what it says on the bottle). Mouthfeel is syrupy and under-carbonated. Honestly, I do not see how this beer has gotten such high reviews, I drank 2 oz and dumped the rest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Draft. Backlog from Oct 2012. Dark brown in the glass with an off-white head that settled to a ring. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and roasted malt. The flavor found chocolate, roasted malt, and a light backing of pepper. Medium body, sweet, and a roasted aftertaste.

b3shine (5126) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bomber to oversized snifter. Looks good; cola with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; chocolate and vanilla with some spice and a pleasant dark malt backbone. Nice and smooth on the palate. Good beer.
