3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2009 Tap @ Capones. Pour black with small light tan head. Sweet caramel/toffee aroma, very welcoming. Nice coffee overtones with subtle sweet flavors. Wouldn’t be able to drink more than oneƙoz pour) but if i didn’t try to pound this it would have been nice. Also the alcohol is a non factor with taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber PPRBSG. Pours a deep dark oily black with a thin lasting deep tan head. Aroma is very sweet chocolate syrup, chocolate essence- oily coffee and nutty roast. Flavor is overly sweet as expected from the choklat- syrupy honey, big coffee and roasted malts, chocolate malts, nutty dusty chalk-like though after the slick sweetness, oily and just too much fake chocolate essence- oils. Cloyingly sweet and hard to finish more than a few oz.

Pour is black wit tan head. Quickly fades. On the nose,coffee and chocolate. a slight vanilla touch as well. Make no mistake this is a wow beer. taste just like a starbucks to me. Nice balance with a bitter finish to even out the sweetness.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. High creamy and lasting light brown head. Pitch black body. Creamy choccolate coffee vanilla aroma. Spitzenklasse. Sweet choccolate dominated flavor with smooth and creamy cofee caramel vanilla notes. Low carbonation. Long aftertaste. Impressive that you hardly smell or taste the alcohol. The sweetness is not too much of a good thing as there is still a fine hops note.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hearty dark brown with a creamy brown head. Big aromas of dark chocolate, coco, coffee, caramel, roasted malts, and vanilla. This is an absolutely delicious brew! The flavor is pretty intense of chocolate, almost like it was melted right into this glass and transformed to liquid. The coffee note is a par under with some roasted malts and a little caramel poking through. There are also noted coco and a touch of vanilla and toffee. Sweet, a little bitter, creamy/silky and rich. You can actually notice some of the chocolate after every sip. The alcohol is not really noticeable. Waited a long time to try this and I’m glad I did. Awesome.

Bottle shared by bconley @ otakudens Vero Beach Throwdown. Pours extremely dark brown with light brown head. Very strong milk chocolate aroma. It tastes like a liquid Hershey bar with some espresso. Alcohol flavor is pretty strong.Full body with average carbonation. Very enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark chocolate brown with little head. The aroma blew me away with its intensity but gradually evolved (devolved?) with each sniff. It went from pure dark chocolate... to chocolate pudding... to chocolate pudding skin... to scratch n’ sniff chocolate pudding. Flavor was stovetop chocolate pudding. Coffee and an alcohol finish emerge as it warms. Fairly creamy. No surprise that this is obnoxious and in your face, but that’s not a bad thing when it comes to chocolate.
