Draft. Pours almost complete dark black with hints of ruby edges, thin tan head. Had to rate this as now I know it’s going away forever. Smell is (as with any ST brew) massive sweet, with chocolate and well mocha, creamy. Taste is big sweet, milk chocolate, mocha, coffee, more sweet, melted brown sugar, vanilla. I like sweet, but this may have jumped the shark for me. Good still, but one small pour is more than enough.

Bière noire, mousse moka(h)! Nez chocolaté, puissant. En bouche : gros choco sucré avec café. You get what’s advertised! Génial.

This is almost a hot chocolate when you smell the aroma. The taste is overwhelming milk chocolate and roasted malts. The alcohol is not showing at all.

Black in the glass. Expected some more from this one. Ok head. Bit taste and smell are like cheap chocolate milk from a little bag with water, with some alcohol added. It’s not bad, but it is more like a chocomilk for me.

Big coffee aroma with chocolate hints. Complex with a thick chewy body. Alcohol well hidden, although definitely something to savor.

tapped at Southern tier tasting at coles. Dark Brown pour with a thick light brown head that laces real nice. Smells chocolate, bubblegum, caramel, creme. So sweet. Thick mouth feel. Taste is huge on milk chocolate, caramel, light mild bitter finish. dessert beer for sure.

Holy good dessert. Black with a small beige head. Light lacing. Aroma of mocha; chocolate and coffee; and vanilla ice cream. Taste is rich and chocolatey sweet with a mild bitterness. The alcohol is very well masked. Medium-full bodied and smooth.

Exactly what u would expect. Pours dark as night. Initial coffee on the nose with slightly more subtle chocolate coming through after. Same deal in the taste although fairly. Equally balanced between th two flavours. Slightly on the sweet side. Very smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol well hidden. Overall very enjoyable brew. Despite mix of two brews still lacks some complexity would have again but wouldn’t seek it out

Bomber bought through Brill & Co. pours pitch black with a small creamy mocha head that is rather quick to dissipate while leaving some lacing on the glass. Smell is sweet and tiny acetic with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, milk chocolate, charred wood, toffee, fudge and hints of vanilla beans. Taste is sweet, bitter and tiny fruity tart with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla beans, wood, peat and hints of sweet soy sauce, toffee, caramel and fudge. Mouthfeel is round, sticky sweet, very tiny tart, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla beans, wood and hints of peat. A bit too much of everything…
