A milk chocolate nose. Pours an opaque black with no head or lacing. Taste is is much like the nose - milk chocolate with a pleasing slightly hoppy finish and a lingering chocolate aftertaste. Medium bodied with minimal carbonation. Smooth. Overall, an excellent beer. Well done Southern Tier!

On tap at Black Bottle Brewery. Black appearance with a light brown head. Big chocolate aroma with vanilla, rich malts, light roasted grains and coffee. Similar flavor, adding mild sweetness and mild bitterness with hints of licorice and molasses. Medium to full body with a light boozy finish. Good.

on tap @ Hebron Brew Haus / Hebron KY --- Aroma of sweet malt and chocolate. Opaque brown/black color, beige head, stripes of lace. Taste is heavenly, addictive, chocolate malt. All it needs is a scoop of vannilla ice cream. Sure, it’s not a typical brew, but for dessert, it is one of the best.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2016 Bomber into wine glass. Pours black, thin cream head. Nose of prunes amd chocolate covered dried cherries. Full, robust in the mouth. Tons of chocolate,a bit of today. Well integrated sense of light molasses. Finishes slightly bitter, and very long chocolate finish that just hours on and on and on. Excellent!

Best chocolate beer in the country hands down. Voted best beer brewed in NY in 2013 for good reason. My favorite Blackwater Series beer.

Bomber - pours like coffee, black with a fine thin tan head. Wonderful aroma of cocoa, chocolate cake, coffee and toffee. Big chocolate flavor with dark chocolate, burnt toast, burnt coffee and caramel. Full bodied, velvety mouthfeel and exceptional flavor.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a full tan head; nice lacing present throughout. Aromas of malt, dark chocolate, and vanilla bean. Taste is a little thin, but overall a nice complex cocoa/vanilla flavor with solid mouthfeel. Good dessert beer, although the well-disguised 10% ABV means it may sneak up on you.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
En aroma el chocolate me parece demasiado intenso, tanto que no pude distinguir más.
De color completamente negro, cuerpo redondo, carbonatacion baja, Corona de espuma reducida y de baja retención.
Al paladar, chocolate, buen amargor y equilibrada.
Al paladar, se percibe alcohólica, un sabor a chocolate algo fuerte pero bien equilibrada, ligeramente amarga sin ser hostigante, y bastante cálida en garganta.
En general es una buena cerveza algo plana y no tan compleja, pero bastante disfrutable.

Bottle at Vienna tasting February 2016. Thanks guys! This is a hell of a chocolate treat. Brutal cocoa and chocolate in both aroma and flavour. Balanced however. Toffee, alcohol and vanilla. I really fucking like it. Complex and tasty and wonderful.
