This beer is the beer that people would die and kill for....this is simply the most beer ever made by mankind. You haven’t lived unless you’ve had Chocolate Rain.

markextrae (1847) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle in a trade. Shared it right after the Black tuesday. Dark Brown pour, with a small non lasting caramel head. Leaves good lacing on the Side. Sweet cacao, bakers chocolate, sweet Bourbon, lot’s of vanilla, Bourbon soaked plums, the alcohol burn is Way lesser here compared with the Black tuesday because of the more cacao sweetness and vanilla, thick and smooth mouthfeel. But yes.. It’s a very heavy beer that you love or hate. There is nothing in between. But i loved it! And i’m lucky enough to have an extra bottle in the cellar for a long time!

TheEpeeist (3489) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2014
25.4 oz bottle. Deep, clearish cola brown with a few bubbles. Nose is bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, wood, molasses and caramel. Medium body but thinner than you would expect. Light carb, high heat but approachable with dessert, or in this case as a breakfast tipple. Taste is bourbon, dark chocolate, oak and dates; maybe a touch of soy. More chocolate please.

sebletitje (7430) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
Bouteille 75cl @ RBBSG III, courtesy of Omgrich. brune foncée, huile de moteur, doré au verre sans aucune trace de mousse. Arôme est fortement malté avec un chocolat fort présent voire dominant. C’est d’ailleurs ce malté qui domine le tout sans pour cela être gênant. Subtil bouquet de vanille ajoute une certaine douceur olfactive. Palais est fortement alcoolisé à presque 20%, cela n’enlève en rien le profil renforcé du malt mais surtout du chocolat qui est ici aussi dominant. La vanille y apporte une alternance appréciable. Pointe de ce qui semble être du Bourbon avec une once de douceur vanillée. Un verre est assez pour une personne avec une obligation de se demander comment ils poussent cette bière si haute en abv sans y rajouter des ’starch sweetners’.
