Madonna’s bra shaped bottle courtesy of BMan1113VR. Clear red pour. Smell is thick woody malts. Spicy but little chocolate apparent. Taste is dark red flavor with not so great finish. Some off flavors are appearing when it warms. Bad aftertaste.

Another gem via a trade with daknole ;). 2007 Bottle. Pours with a tan head and a brown body. Aroma of dirt, fudge and dry bread. Taste is light smoke, milk chocolate and dryness. Not Great.

Wow, what a bottle. Pours a clear brown with a creamy head. Aroma of chocolate, malts, cherry, dark fruit. Taste becomes rather sweet/plastic like though, doesn’t hold up the decent aroma.

Bomber shared at Scottyp’s housewarming tasting. Crazy bullet bottle pours a clear red with ring of khaki head. Nose of alcohol, rum raisin, and chocolate like that of the center of a cherry flavored toostie pop. Flavor has lots of fake cocoa with soy sauce. Kinda like a walgreens medicine that gets chocolate flavoring. Awesome bottle though.

Pours a fading beige head with a clear, brown body with ruby highlights. Aromas of apple, toffee, some cocoa, and a little roast. Flavor of roasted malt, and some cocoa, and some cherry. Thin body. Extra overall points for the bottle and for A-B even trying to do this.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark ruby pour with minimal head. The aroma is mostly sour, cloying dark fruit, cherry and a faint hint of chocolate. The flavor is about the same as the aroma with just a touch more chocolate coming through. Medium body. Pretty middle of the road for a craft beer but much better than most any other BMC brew I’ve ever had. This actually has a little complexity to it.

2007 batch. Lighter than I would have expected out of a "chocolate lager". Medium brown with a small tan head. It had the same aroma as the cherry version except with a little chocolate smell. pretty dissapointing with a half assed chocolate aftertaste. This beer sucked but it was better than the cherry version.
