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.

Bought from NYC, sampled in Panama City. Dark opaque brown color, steady creamy brown head. Strong oak-vanilla aroma with toasted notes. Medium-bodied. Oak-wood and vanilla dominate the flavor, some coffee and toasted maltyness. Wineous tartness in finish, although soft palate. Fairly easy to drink and ok balanced.

22oz bottle. Large brown head atop cola black body. Aroma is sweet, coffee, oak, bittersweet chocolate, some boozy. Taste is moderately sweet, espresso, some wood, alcohol, chocolate. Medium-full body, some effervescence. But for the booziness, I would have given this a much higher score.

bhensonb (10938) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Bomber from Westside Renaissance Market in Ukiah, CA. Pours dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is chocolate with a hint of coffee. Med body or better. Flavor is earthy chocolate with firm coffee. Seems to have vanilla, but not much. Think I’m finding oak, not a lot. Finishes rather bitter chocolate and coffee.

Leighton (10774) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle shared with the fellas in Heaven, as the sun rose. Pours deep brown with a sudsy khaki head. OK stuff overall. Pretty sweet with somewhat sugary chocolate character, light metal, dark berries, mellow burnt wood presence. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lots of milk chocolate in the finish, soft roast, burnt sugars, understated barrel. Good duration on the chocolate character. Not bad on the whole.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours black with a mid-sized, creamy, beige head that never fully dissipates. The aroma offers lots of fudge, big-time coconut, light vanilla and a whisper of lactic acid. Full-bodied and silky with soft, airy carbonation. The flavor is loaded with chocolate and toasted oak with only a trace of bourbon. Fudge and toasted oak finish. I’m going against the grain here. What’s not to like? World class brew!
