3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed via a bottle in the cellar brought back from Belgium. Pours a dark brown-black with a large caramel brown head that clings to the glass. Smells of coffee, chocolate, rum and fresh cut baking potatoes. Tastes like raw potato with coffee and rum. The aftertaste is dry from the sugar content and tastes like a dark chocolate Reisen candy (chocolate/caramel).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from my trip to Belgium. The beer pours to a pitch black body with a tall lively dark brown head. The aroma is strangely very Belgian. Lots of yeasty aromas and candi sugar with some chocolate covered bananas and coffee beans and sugar cane. Very unique. The flavor is coffee and chocolate. A lot of unique flavors too. Perhaps raisins, smoke, vanilla, wood, licorice, and a thick molasses. The rum component imparts quite a unique character. Medium full body that finishes pretty clean for as heavy of a beer this is. A good beer, but to me, it doesn’t scream spectacular.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours black with a small beige head. The lace is sticky at first before sliding down the glass and leaving random spots. The aroma has more in the way of dark caramel, sweetness and coffee than Mocha Bomb. There is a barrel note that seemed like rum and it makes since after reading the description. The flavor has big, sweet dark caramel, coffee, vanilla, rum barrel and a splash of tobacco. Mouth feel seemed a bit sticky compared to the Mocha Bomb. I enjoyed this very much.

Bottle at home - 15/09/12.
Extreme dark brown verging on black the mocha head soon thins to absolutely nothing.
Big espresso coffee nose, sweet roasted malts, more espresso and a little tirimisu.
Tastes of espresso, sweet dark sugars, chocolate, coffee.
The alcohol is very well disguised and integrated into the beer.
Full bodied, a little soft carbonation with an espresso finish. Very smooth.
Great coffee imperial stout, but I enjoyed the Mocha bomb more.

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt!
The beer is a deep, dark brown shade, bordering on blackness. The tan head lasts for a considerable time, leaving ample lacing on the glass.
The aroma brings lots of coffee. Oh I do I do I do want coffee! Ahem...additionally, scents of yeast, roast, and chocolate.
What a terrific flavor, with a heavy, potent dose of delicious coffee. The beer is far from one dimensional, with beautifully integrated yeast and chocolate flavors. The finish brings a dry bitterness that has me yearning for more.
Alcohol presence is a non issue. I wish I had a box of this awesome brew in my cellar.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle, Delirium Hoppy Loft, 21 July 2012) Black as hell, with brief frothy beige head. Malty, roasted nose with massive amounts of freshly ground coffee, some cacao, wort and a touch of dark rye bread. Malty, roasted taste with notes of chocolate, strong black coffee, dark bread, brown sugar, vanilla and some honey sweetness coming through in a fairly vinous finish with a generous coffee bitterness. Some alcohol shining through, but stays in the background. Full body, rounded mouthfeel. The nose indicates a massive coffee attack, but taste is a lot more complex and quite well balanced considering all the impressions. Absolutely lovely beer!
