Exactly what u would expect. Pours dark as night. Initial coffee on the nose with slightly more subtle chocolate coming through after. Same deal in the taste although fairly. Equally balanced between th two flavours. Slightly on the sweet side. Very smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol well hidden. Overall very enjoyable brew. Despite mix of two brews still lacks some complexity would have again but wouldn’t seek it out

Bomber bought through Brill & Co. pours pitch black with a small creamy mocha head that is rather quick to dissipate while leaving some lacing on the glass. Smell is sweet and tiny acetic with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, milk chocolate, charred wood, toffee, fudge and hints of vanilla beans. Taste is sweet, bitter and tiny fruity tart with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla beans, wood, peat and hints of sweet soy sauce, toffee, caramel and fudge. Mouthfeel is round, sticky sweet, very tiny tart, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla beans, wood and hints of peat. A bit too much of everything…

Pours black with a frothy caramel head. Aroma is of chocolate, milk, coffee, vanilla, and malt. Taste is very sweet up front, huge body, with strong chocolate presence and a very slightly bitter herbal finish. Medium carbonation, and the chocolate lingers forever. Hard to drink a lot of this - definitely a dessert beer for sharing.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2013 650 ml bottle. Pours black with light tan head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of dark chocolate milk, coffee, vanilla, and heavily roasted malt. Flavors of chocolate, sweet coffee, and brownies with perhaps a bit of soy sauce. Very nice but carbonated and quite warm - the alcohol is present in heat and taste.

65cl bottle, served in Duvel cup. Pours black with a clear light brown head, very nice. Soft cocoa blended with lots of vanilla notes on the nose, really pleasant. No coffee until tasting, added to the other elements. There’s a milky touch, and worth to mention the moderate sweetness in the back (very well balanced by the hops). Very oaky-like sometimes despite the fact it’s not barrel aged. No alcohol at all. Creamy mouthfeel, perfect carbonation. Exellent!!!

Bottle. Wow. Pours black with a thick brown head. Aroma is chocolate; specifically hot cocoa; and hot coffee. That’s all she wrote. That flavor is a bit more complicated. Chocolate for days, unsurprisingly; also coffee of course. But also creaminess and a big boozey kick of alcohol. The alcohol kick is a tad aggressive for this beer, unless you take into account that this beer is in fact very strong. It didn’t bother me. Mouth feel is slick and oily. Carbonation is moderately low. No lacing. High quality; Southern Tier is used to that. Tasty, drinkable, effective. Well-crafted.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: black pour into snifter. Quarter inch of cocoa brown head.
Aroma: light, sweet cocoa.
Taste: super rich creamy chocolate, bitter coffee toward finish. Very tasty.
Palate: very creamy mouth feel, moderate to low carbonation. A little heat on finish.
Overall. Snifter from Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. Very good, rich sweet stout. Tastes a lot like chocolate milk, especially when burping. Hides ABV well.
