bomber. Poured thick deep brown (almost black) in color with a fine ring of brown bubbles which left little lacing on the glass. Aroma of strong milk chocolate, light coffee and an overwhelming sweetness. Tastes of milk chocolate, light coffee notes, and cream. Interesting thing about these sweet blackwater series brews is that they are far better cold or on tap. Once these have time to breath and warm up, they come with a punch and are pretty cloying.

Bubbly black beautiful pour. On tap at the Vintage Estates, nice place. Choco aroma, choco liqour taste, rather smooth. You can tell this has choklat roots. Almost like chocolate coffee and whisky on ice cream. Tho strong, alky sensation provides a warming effect on the palate. Not bad for a high abv stout. Finish is choco and alky, darker choco alky.

pours black with small beige to tan head. Smell is mostly like the choklat. Sweet chocolate syrup with some artificial qualities. Taste is mostly artificial chocolate and some light alcohol. Maybe a touch of coffee, but not much at all. Very artificial, but drinkable. Odd beer, like most of ST big beers...

22 oz. Poured almost as thick as melted chocolate syrup. No head. The aroma reminds me of driving into Hershey, Pennsylvania. Similarily, this drinks like a glass of cold Bosco (thank you George Costanza). This would be freakin’ awesome over a bowl of vanilla ice cream. Delicious dessert beer! (#3550, 5/22/2009)

Initial flavor is chocolate followed by a little bit of esspresso. Some heavy caramel flavor is very prominant in the finish. Delicious, but very sweet, it almost has the charecteristics of a sweet "milk Stout". As a desert or desert drink I love it, as a beer it is very good, but not a go to imperial stout primarily because of it being so sweet.

Another delicious impy from Southern TIer. Aroma was great. Strong chocolate with a hint of espresso. Pour was a flat dark brown/near black with a thin tan ring for a head. Taste was very strong and full, This like liquified dark chocolate covered espresso beans. Very delicious with a strong bitter dark chocolate aftertaste. The mouthfeel was very thin, though, and that hurt the final score. I loooved Chokolat and this was heavier on the flavor and aroma, but the thin-ness of it just can’t score it higher. Great beer!

(bottle - 22 oz) Dark black pour with a fluffy mountain of tan foam. Aroma is rich and loaded with cocoa, dark and roasted malts, and some coffee. Flavor is heavily roasted malts at the beginning that blend with the smoothness of the chocolate and takes some of the bitter bite away. Less bitter than the Jahva and less sweet than the Choklat. Smooth and creamy.

Bottle. Big on flavor, but a little too rich for my tastes. At first it’s fun to drink, but after a few ounces it turns into more of a novelty. Not a bad beer, definitely worth trying. But I don’t think I’ll be going back for a second taste anytime soon.

Bomber. Dark, oily pour with a light tan head. Coffee and milk chocolate - super sweet and sugary. Flavor is similar, like eating a chocolate bar with a cup of coffee. Huge in flavor but lacking in nuance. Meh.
