We toned down the hops a bit to allow cocoa nibs to contribute some pleasing bitterness, while vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne keeps things lively, adding just a bit of heat to the finish. A Yeti for summer? Hell yes.

Bomber bottle at Craig’s house. What a choice for after dinner on a cold night. It has it all, flavors of chocolate combined with a rich malt and warming alcohol.

Bottle shared with Jonathan, non-Rate Beer. Black beverage with brown foam that quickly disappears. Slight aroma of smoke and cocoa. Slightly oily mouthfeel and flavor of vanilla, cocoa and lightly roasted coffee.

Sampled on tap at the SideDoor gastropub in Chicago. Very dark, almost balck, with a cream-coloured head. Aromas of choclate, and a huge milk chocolate hit when tasted. Very malty, with lots of roasted malt, coffee and (predominantly) chocolate flavours. This is a very dry tasting beer with a long, bitter finish with hints of ash. Difficult to drink much of this - it is so heavy on the palette and dry. Should be served in something the size of a demi-tasse. i would like to try the non-chocolate version.

Bottle to glass. Been in the bottle for a bit. Pours a pitch black color with a creamy medium brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, burnt chocolate, light coffee character. Flavor has a lot of burnt roasted malts, bitter chocolate, not much oak character if any, maybe because its been in the bottle too long. Medium body with a lingering burnt roasted malts. Decent. But probably much better fresh.

From botlle, black pour with small beige head and moderate lacing. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is the same, with a gentle bitterness and a medium full mouthfeel. Smooth and very nice.

Bottle. Dark chocolate on all levels, a little dry across the palate, just a hint of booze, it tastes like I imagine it?s like to lick a oak tree. Aromas ate molasses, cocoa, oak, dates, booze, smoke, a little hoppyness and ash at the end.

Favorite chocolate beer I’ve had to date. Dark black with a purple head. Taste slightly bitter dark chocolate with a sweet, pleasant finish.
