4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is the best stout I’ve had hands down! Tastes of chocolate and coffee are blended perfect. I cannot believe that this is an 11.2% alc. vol. This is truly a great product. Well done!

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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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…

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with a frothy caramel head. Aroma is of chocolate, milk, coffee, vanilla, and malt. Taste is very sweet up front, huge body, with strong chocolate presence and a very slightly bitter herbal finish. Medium carbonation, and the chocolate lingers forever. Hard to drink a lot of this - definitely a dessert beer for sharing.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2013 650 ml bottle. Pours black with light tan head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of dark chocolate milk, coffee, vanilla, and heavily roasted malt. Flavors of chocolate, sweet coffee, and brownies with perhaps a bit of soy sauce. Very nice but carbonated and quite warm - the alcohol is present in heat and taste.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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!!!
