Imperial Chocofant Stout! Loads of sweet caramel. Very sweet. Kudos to the extremity. The flavour is quite boozy with heavy caramel and chocolate notes. Strong vanilla notes. Heavy stuff!!

The smell and taste on this beer is simply amazing. Full of chocolate and I mean full of it. Second comes the vanilla and bourbon. Not as strong of a bourbon flavor as BT as the chocolate takes over a bit here. Just a pleasure to drink.

On cask at 2011 Black Tuesday. Very minimal head. aroma of all chocolate. Taste is very similar to chocolate milk, without losing itís black tuesday characteristics. Extremely smooth and easy to drink. One of the best beers I have ever had.

Chocolate Rain!! Courtesy of dcschiller at the Black Friday Tasting. It pours up a nice dark mahogany supporting up a tan head. The aroma is a mix of yummy rich chocolate, bold booze, fudge brownie and more chocolate. Wow! The taste is similar with delicious decadent chocolate and rich fudge as well as dark chocolate with thin ribbons of vanilla. Around the edges of the flavor is the expected booziness and then a touch of heat into the finish. This is supposed to be big and brash and decadent and it sure as hell is, love it!

The beer pours darky murky root beer brown, close to black with almost no head retention. The aroma is a lot of booze with some nice vanilla notes. The flavor has a lot more delicous sweet chocolate notes, light vanilla notes, and smooth booze that is easy on the palate somehow for the ABV. The body is medium which is surprisingly welcomed considering it could be a lot thicker.

Bottle sampled @ BF Tasting courtesy of dschiller! In one word...WOW! Milky Hersheyís chocolate, fudge, brownie batter, freshly split vanilla bean, oak, bourbon, caramel, raisin, and grain alcohol. Definitely hot but not a hot mess. Also get loads of molasses and even a little maple syrup. The viscous black body is creamy and luxurious when sipping (donít attempt anything else). Really nicely done...definitely a step up from the base beer!
