3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Clear dark reddish brown with a thick, tan head that lasts and laces. Aromas of big chocolate syrup, coffee, roasted malt, and some light dark fruit. Flavor is the same. Full bodied, creamy, syrupy and smooth. Lingering chocolate and coffee.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours opaque, near black, with small tan head.
Great aroma of coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla. Palate is darker, bitter chocolate, espresso, burnt toast, black cherry, peppery spice. It’s harder than the nose, but manages to avoid the chalkiness that affects some coffee brews.
Medium body, with the 10 percent ABV well controlled until a nice dab of heat on the finish. Nice accompaniment for dessert, or dessert itself.

This smells way more awesome than it tastes IMO. Lots and lots of chocolate and coffee in the nose followed by an artificial chocolate in the taste that turned me off a bit. Still a good beer, just not as amazing as the nose.

Cask: all chocolate in aroma with glorious flavors of chocolate, malt, and coffee in flavor. But mostly sweet. The coffee is definitely with cream and sugar. Soooooooo tasty!!
