opaque dark dark brown, you could almost fool someone blindfolded into thinking this was hot cocoa via the aroma, with marshmallows. thankfully the chocolate is more subdued in the mouth. you do get to taste the chinook and wilalmette hops in the long dry and bitter finish.

I know it’s too hot to drink this stuff in Florida, but my girl loves imperial stouts, and I can’t pass up a sip. Smells of candy bars, Hershey’s chocolate, milky sweet and caramel. Flavor has a little more bitterness and plenty of chocolate malts. It’s dessert in a glass, but isn’t it supposed to be?

Pours a dark black with thick light brown head. Has a strong cocoa powder aroma. This heavy beer has a strong taste of chocolate, with hints of coffee. A creamy and filling beer. A sweet stout.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
650ml bottle. Bottled 09/05/12. Consumed 06/16/14. Pours black with a thin, beige head that fades to a ring. Aroma has huge notes of bitter and milk chocolate, slight roasted characteristics, some caramel, and a touch of coffee. Smells rich. Taste is a balanced sweet. Milk chocolate to start then into some bitter chocolate, faint roasted notes, and ending is a drawn out aftertaste. Very little alcohol taste but a faint warmth. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Smooth texture with a soft carbonation. Overall an awesome chocolate beer. Lots of chocolate but not too sweet. Really nice.

2009 bomber poured to snifters, displaying a ruby highlighted, darkest brown color, with a modest layer of deep, brownish tan head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was totally rich & expressive, gourmet chocolate. The taste included smooth malt, a creamy mouth feel, soft carbonation, good fullness to the texture, but probably lost some of it’s roasted & bitter qualities to the cellar. Palatably sweet, with hidden alcohol, and still a very tasty dessert Stout.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
5 oz pour on 5-17 Southern Tier public day. First time trying this myself. Huge aroma of chocolate and vanilla hits you. Very pleasant. Taste followed that, pretty sweet and was just like eating a hershey candy bar (mix between the milk and dark chocolate tastes). Full bodied, thick, and sweet up front with a bit of dark chocolate bitter and tartness. Outstanding beer. I don’t think I could do an entire bomber myself, but I’d gladly split one.

Huge whiff of chocolate and vanilla in the aroma. Creamy texture, sweet finish with some tiny hints of malts and spices. Full bodied. Fantastic desert. Shared this bomber with my wife, a full bomber of this sweetness might be a bit overpowering in one sitting. Thanks ruffian!

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks DSG. Black with tan head. HaShachar chocolate milk spread in the nose, some burnt malt, a little sour and very sweet chocolate in the mouth. Full body, very smooth, a little roasty finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour. Black with rough beige head. Nose is yohoo. Blindfolded, would not finger this for beer. Taste is chocolate milk. Boozy, cherry liquor on the back end. Thought this would be too sweet, ended up being *almost* too sweet. Chalky mouth feel.
