2008 bomber from Marcus. Only the good stuff. Black color with no head. The aroma is complexly tarry. Vanilla. Wood. Anise? Chocolate. Scary. Medium plus body with chewy carbonation. Flavor is rather tarry. With chocolate and coffee and vanilla. If Santa doesn’t come to your house, he is probably lying in ecstasy on a North Pole floor. Very satisfying and tasty.

thewolf (11292) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2008
Bottle, bought at Ølbutikken, Cph. Pours completely black with a medium, staying, creamy, cappucino head. Lovely coffee aroma with some sweet chocolate and vanilla mixed in. Low carbonation, great creamy mouthfeel. Flavour begins with a lot of coffee, rather dry, chocolate and light viniousness, cocoa, vanilla and a little caramel. Lovely dry aftertaste, really balanced. The alcohol gets more pronounced as it heats up, giving me that good, warming and tingling Christmas feeling :o]

Draft at Downtown Johnny Browns. Poured dark brown with a moderate creamy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Heavy toasted chocolate and coffee malt with a small alcohol aroma. Full body with a creamy texture. Heavy balanced toasted malt and spice flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout stout beer.
