COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an extravagant, immoderate beer. We mixed together our three favorite things - beer, chocolate and coffee. A rich stout serves as the backbone, with organic black malt and chocolate malt providing a luscious foundation. During the boil, we add artisan chocolate from our friends at Taza. During conditioning, we add coffee from out friends at Coffee by Design. Then, this concoction is oak-aged, resulting in soft vanilla notes. We hope you enjoy this beer as much as we do.

Something's off about this one. I get a stale, coffee ground aftertaste: Almost wonder if I should smell this to clear my palate.

22oz but still a twist top, thatís Peakís style. Pours a impenetrable black with a foamy brown head. Strong Vanilla notes come from the oak aging as well as maybe some dark fruit, yeast and coffee. Mostly this gives off a strong scent of oak aging. Pretty heavy mouth-feel and more carbonation than it needs. Pretty easy going but also with plenty of depth. Vanilla, chocolate and coffee flavors are there, always with an underlying burn that finishes oak aged. Not a heavy burn but still a barrel aged beer taste, much easier than most. This 22oz isnít bad itís just something Iíd rather split with friends.

BroSpud (1773) - , Massachusetts, USA - APR 10, 2014
Bomber. Pours a deep dark brown with a tan head that doesnít stick around very long. Chocolate and coffee notes and quite tasty notes at that. Easily the best thing I have tasted from Peak thus far. Also like that it doesnít have the crazy high abv of some others in this style but still delivers a great tasting stout.

brystmar (1305) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 6, 2014
Deep brown pour, tan head, sticky lace. Oxidized nose distracts from the mocha robeytones. Silky chocolate meets rounded coffee; taste buds rejoice. Seriously high end chocolate used here. Oak is more an afterthought than anything. Low carb doesn't distract from the mocha bomb deliciousness. So smooth, so drinkable. Much better than expected. Shows a level of refinement not often seen in shelf beer. I'd happily seek out another.

alexsdad06 (6294) - Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle shared with friends. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized beige colored head. The aroma and flavor had roasted malts, chocolate, oak and coffee, light vanilla notes. I would have to say Iím surprised by this although the body is thinnish.

Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma if coffee, oak, and smoke. Taste is strong smoke, not my favorite. Smoke sticks around too.

Bomber. Pours a dark black pour with a java head. Nose is woody, malty with some alcohol. Taste is oaky, woody with a vanilla chocolate taste and some whiskey notes as well. Finish is chocolate with woody oaky notes and moderately long. Quaff Score 8 / 10
