Dark brown coloured body with a thinnish tan head. Aroma of nice chocolate and roasted malt, with bunches of alcohol. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong roasty flavour up front with a hint of coffee, a lot of chocolate and some other strong notes - perhaps the corn coming through. Aftertaste shows the alcohol at first with a pungent and rather strong roastiness and bitterness (perhaps the cacao) and a lighter refreshing wood flavour at the end - all with great complexity. Overall, a nice and flavourful beer that shows the style well and is very interesting. I sampled this pint on draught at the brewpub in Anchorage, Alaska on 25-June-2011 for US$10 for 12ounces.

SHIG (3565) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle: Poured a deep blackened brown with floating chunks and tan color head. Sweet cocoa and coffee aroma. Taste is sour oak with a sweet cocoa nibs and toffee. Not sure if this is actually past its best buy, but it works for me.

Bomber shared by a kind soul. Pours a cocoa brown color with an off-white head. Nose is some light nutty flavors, some sweet malt, some vanilla, light coffee, and a nice mole-esque peppery spice. Flavor is similar- interesting melding of flavors: cocoa, coffee, brown ale nuts, and jalapeno-esque spices. Medium in body and nice overall.

Bomber from brewboone. Pours black with a tan head. Nose of coffee, but not oak barrels, more like rum barrels. Taste has some chilis, but is off due to tartness that is not supposed to be there. Great, this batch is infected and I have three bottles! Other rates have mentioned sourness but not called it out. Bad, infected batch!

Bottle from 12many.
Yeah I’m not too sure about this one. Something seems a little off, although I’m not sure this is the intended flavor or a bad bottle. I get a good amount of chili pepper spice and coffee in the aroma. The flavor is an odd mixture of sweet and sour, with chocolate, coffee, and spices, but also an underlying tartness. Definitely unique and a thumbs up for something different..... but that might be about it.
