Bottle. Wow. Pours black with a thick brown head. Aroma is chocolate; specifically hot cocoa; and hot coffee. That’s all she wrote. That flavor is a bit more complicated. Chocolate for days, unsurprisingly; also coffee of course. But also creaminess and a big boozey kick of alcohol. The alcohol kick is a tad aggressive for this beer, unless you take into account that this beer is in fact very strong. It didn’t bother me. Mouth feel is slick and oily. Carbonation is moderately low. No lacing. High quality; Southern Tier is used to that. Tasty, drinkable, effective. Well-crafted.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: black pour into snifter. Quarter inch of cocoa brown head.
Aroma: light, sweet cocoa.
Taste: super rich creamy chocolate, bitter coffee toward finish. Very tasty.
Palate: very creamy mouth feel, moderate to low carbonation. A little heat on finish.
Overall. Snifter from Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. Very good, rich sweet stout. Tastes a lot like chocolate milk, especially when burping. Hides ABV well.

On draft @ the beer exchange. Pours a dark brown with minimal head. Taste is sweet milk chocolate. Delicious. Hard to believe it is 11%.

Medium bodied stout. Bomber was about a year old so maybe that’s why the coffee faded. Super sweet chocolate. 11% ABV hidden well.

Bomber->snifter. Deep brown with faint tan head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee, no surprise. Taste is strong chocolate with some coffee. Rich and sweet, great dessert beer. Definitely want to share the bottle, as 4-5 ounces is about the limit before the rich sweetness becomes too much.

Oerhört stark doft av kakao och karamell. Mörk som natten. Smaken är tyvärr inte mycket mer än just kakao.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is quite subtle, combining hints of roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee; the appearance fuses a black color with a small tan head. The taste of this beer is quite bitter--as if combining the bitterness of dark chocolate with strong black coffee--yet slightly sweet. The palate combines an average carbonation, a thin texture, medium body, and a bitter finish, which makes for a slightly abrasive stout.

Tap into sniffer. Black with faintly tan head. Nose of chocolate. Intense chocolate upfront, coffee depth and bitterness in the back. Mocha is a good summary. Fairly sweet, not a session drink but good for one.
