Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours dark brown (nearly black) with a small, creamy, lightly tanned head. Good retention. The aroma features subtle notes of coconut, vanilla and roasted malts. Full-bodied and velvety with lively carbonation. The flavor features bittersweet, roasty malts and vanilla - no coconut here. Lengthy, tongue-numbing, roasty and sweet finish. Big thanks to BBB63 for shipping me this world-class beer!

22oz bomber shared by Dean. Poured a thick oily deep black body with a smaller mocha colored head. Aroma of bourbon, alcohol, burnt toast, vanilla extract, dark chocolate, chocolate pudding skins. Medium to fuller body with noticeable heat that lingers and softer carbonation. Flavor isnt as hot as the aroma. Notes of dark chocolate, dry burnt toast, vanilla, alcohol and a hunt of coconut. Pretty shicked this isn’t barrel aged and all the booze is simply from the big ABV.

Bomber from xdtfx. Nose is coffee, coconut, chocolate, and almonds. Black with a small cinnamon tan head. Flavor is sweet nutty dark chocolate latte. Really easy drinking and tasty. Wish I had a case of this rather than the one bomber.

Strong vanilla and nutty flavor to start. Very boozy finish. Pours black with almost no head. Smells like vanilla with a bitter backbone. Had out of a bomber at home.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz bomber. The pour is jet black with a lighter khaki colored head that falls to a thin ring with no lace. The aroma is beautifully coconut laced. There is a great roasty malt character and a nice licorice bitterness that comes through. There is a good booze heat on the back end, which was a little surprising. The flavor is a little more roasty with a good licorice bitterness. The coconut offers a little sweetness to combat it, but the bitterness is the mainstay. The mouth feel is excellent. Thick, viscous, with a soft carbonation that help it hang around beautifully. The aftertaste is a roasty and bitter, with a dryness that is just great. Solid beer
