2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber poured to chalice. Aroma of chocolate and roasty malt. Mouthfeel is thin. Taste is very chocolatey and I didn’t get much coffee. More of a cocoa. The finish is warm and roasty. Any hint of coffee was picked up in the finish. Overall fairly drinkable and average for the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep black with just a hint of brownish amber and a smaller bubbly tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate and a coffee milkshake. Flavor of the same coffee milkshake. But not in an artificial way. The beer is what you would expect from the description and I like it. Dessert beers like this might not be for everyone but I dig it. Great use of coffee and chocolate in a beer.

Bottle. Pours a deep black with a huge bubbly tan head that lingers. Rich aroma, of coffee, sweet chocolate, roasted malts, wood, and caramel. Taste is sweet and roasty, of chocolate-covered coffee beans, roasted malt, toast, sugar, milk, almost like tiramisu. Lingering sweet dessert. Yummy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of mochacino, potting soil, and earthy hops. Dark brown-black with tan head foam of little retention. Tastes boozy, dry, and roasty, with predominant espresso and cocoa flavors, along with a good degree of hop bitterness. The palate is full bodied, with fluffy carbonation, and a long, dry, roasty finish.

Appearance: pours near black with a frothy tan ring.
Aroma: Coffee,chocolate,sugar,medium roast.
Taste: Coffee, dark chocolate. Spicy hops. Long coffee finish.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with modest carbonation.
Overall: I will put this beer in the “Coffee Beers I Like” column. Not like KBS or Speedway, it’s own beer, and a respectable one at that.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Black pour with a dark tan head that fades out to a slick quickly. Aroma is heavy chocolate and coffee with some roast. Taste is coffee up front with chocolate and roast and then a very bland, generic sweet malt finish. Clean mouthfeel. Nice smelling beer but the taste, beyond the coffee and roast, is boring.
