65cl bottle, served in Duvel cup. Pours black with a clear light brown head, very nice. Soft cocoa blended with lots of vanilla notes on the nose, really pleasant. No coffee until tasting, added to the other elements. There’s a milky touch, and worth to mention the moderate sweetness in the back (very well balanced by the hops). Very oaky-like sometimes despite the fact it’s not barrel aged. No alcohol at all. Creamy mouthfeel, perfect carbonation. Exellent!!!

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.

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.
