COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark and robust beer brewed in the traditional stout method. Teddy Bear Kisses features an abundance of dark malts and high alpha hops for a powerful impact of roast, chocolate, and sweet bitterness. The lucky few who cuddle up to a warming session with Teddy Bear Kisses sense the velvety malt character, balanced bitter intensity, and soothing chocolate notes created by long aging on fair trade cocoa nibs. Teddy Bear Kisses will make you feel warm and happy inside, but it’s definitely not your childhood cuddle toy.

Tap. Dark pour with a little tan head. Smells of chocolate and slight coffee. Tastes of the same with a slight sweetness and slight alcohol burn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a black with small head and small lacing. Aroma of dark bitter chocolate roasted malt hint of vanilla and caramel. Boozy. Moderate hope bitterness. Full bodied chewy and a bit oily. Medium bitter finish with vodka like boozy tones. Wanted to like this better . May be good with age.

Outstanding. Fairly low carbonation chocolate carmel up front. High ABV is subdued by great grain bill.

Block (1650) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Black pour, almost zero head. Aroma is sweet, chocolate, caramel. The body is medium with a smooth mouthfeel. More chocolate, a little roasted malts. Overall it’s really good and the 10.2% alcohol is very well hidden.

2014 12oz bottle. Black pour with a tan head. Big dark chocolate on the nose with some hops and roastiness. Taste is big on the dark chocolate with licorice, dark fruit, oats, molasses as well. Great beer!

574deadzone (1176) - North Central, Indiana, USA - NOV 18, 2014
2014’s 12 oz. bottle. Pours pitch black with a thin mocha head that dwindles to a thin ring and leaves some spotty lace around the edges. Nose involves rich dark chocolate, toasted malt, licorice, fairly intense herbal hops, some cherry and plum. Quite sweet, but pretty bitter as well. Medium to full bodied, viscous, softer carb, finishing toasty, warm, and toward dry. Nice brew, pretty drinkable but still with substance.

arn8897 (123) - Trenton, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a dark kahki head. Aromas of chocolate and coffee. Thinner than most ostmeal stouts at this high an ABV. Goes doen way to easy. Almost no booze taste at all. Hops come out a little more as it warms. Very drinkable. Will definetly try again. Growler fill at Middletown Fine Wine and Spirits.

This is a very good stout. Smells very chocolatey. It’s black as shit and has a nice thick bit small foam ring around it. The beer looks a little like Jupiter from the top. Nice and creamy mouthfeel thats a little thin, but still has some body to it. Tastes great!.

Stouts have character! This stout is no exception. Sweet enough to be balanced, with a complex chocolate coffee flavor. For 10% its way too drinkable. You could pound one of these, its that kind of good...
