4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a mostly opaque with dark mahogany hues and a small froth of dark tan head. Aroma of rich, sweet molten dark chocolate and roasty coffee beans with a touch of molasses. Body starts full and sticky sweet with lots of chocolate covered espresso bean flavor and some slightly doughy caramel undertones before a drier, bittersweet, and lightly warming finish. Very true to its name and fairly complex.

Bottle thanks to punkrkr27...Pours black with a tan head... Aroma is chocolate, maybe a little vanilla but I don’t pick up any coffee.. Flavor is mostly milk chocolate and a slight bitterness.. It’s a good beer but it just didn’t come together for me. Jahva and Choklat are great by themselves I’m not too sure they needed to be combined.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured like an oil slick into my glass. A thin ring of tan foam settled into a lasting ring. The aroma was coffee, milk and chocolate. The flavor was a super sweet blast of milk chocolate and coffee. More like a liqueur or a shot a chick would order in a bar. Thick, full-bodied mouthfeel. Excessive. I didn’t finish the bomber.

Smells of sweet dark chocolate, with nice hints of coffee. Big taste of chocolate, coffee, and what really blows me away about this beer is there’s still a great imperial stout behind that. Delicious.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a sexy black/opaque with medium brown head that is quite thick at first and recedes to a nice one finger layer for awhile.
Nose is exceptional. This could seduce any non-beer drinker into having a sip. Reminds me of one of those chocolate cheesecakes, creamy/milky fresh with overflowing chocolate "sweet" aromas. There’s some nougat and coffee in there too. So, so seductive nose.
On the palate the body is good with plenty of cocoa, coffee, roasty flavors, with some alcohol warmth. I suppose it is higher than many Imperial stouts. Hops help to balance some but who cares - the chocolate & coffee are to die for!

Bottle, the wife grabbed a good one. Aroma is mainly coccoa. Pours an almost opaque black but I can see the light!! Flavor starts out like a piece of choco only to tail off to a nice coffee. Palate is full and tasty. Overall, I wish I had another bottle.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle [22oz] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a very dark brown with an average size diminishing creamy tan head. Good lacing. Aroma’s quite sweet along with a fuckload of chocolate, some roasted malt and a bit of coffee. Somewhat overly sweet chocolatey flavour along with roasted malt, some coffee and hops in the finish. Alcohol’s pretty well hidden. Medium bodied. Pretty good but a bit too much in the sweet chocolate department for me.

Bomber, shared. Pours a deep brown with a reddish tint on the edges of the glass and a medium tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, and a bit of roasted malt. Taste is almost too strong, with chocolate and roasted malt in front exploding into a coffee and hop bitterness. Alcohol barely detectable, and the smoothness belies its 11% content. It’s amazing that I love beers like this and refuse to drink coffee, but I don’t ask questions, I just drink the beer.

22oz bottle thanks to Eric. Pours a dark brown color with a medium white head. The aroma is nice; strong cocoa and sweet vanilla, roasted cocoa. The flavor is very good; sweet caramel, cocoa, chocolate, milky and smooth. A rich decadent impy for sure. A true dessert brew. Very good.
