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.

Bomber to snifter. Looks solid; cola with tan lacing. Smells solid too; roast and malt with some and chocolate. Tastes like it smells with a good (although slightly thin) mouthfeel. Abv is hidden extremely well. Enjoyable.

Sample from a 22oz bottle. Black color, good light brown head, some lace. Nice dark chocolate, roasty nose. Flavor is like rich chocolate coffee cake, lightly soaked in booze. Lighter body for the 10.2% ABV, but still big, with a nice chewy texture. Good bitter taste. Alcohol is better hidden than in the Double Dragonfly I just tasted before this, there is enough flavor here to balance it out. Very light carbonation, smooth body, more dry finish. Nice chocolatey coffee aftertaste. Tasty imperial stout.

poured from 22oz bomb - Nice texture and feel; quite hot; roasted to hell and back. Smooth as a beer weighing in at 10.2 % could be. Damn the thing is hot though. I think I like it.

Patrickctenchi (3654) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Black with a short, dark brown head. Aroma is boozy, dark fruit. Taste is creamy chocolate, slightly ashy bitter....and alcohol. Hoppy-bitter herbal notes. A little thin despite the ABV.....but still, a good one.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a deep brown hued body with a small tan head that fades. Aromas are of oatmeal, cereal, leather, spicy, chocolate, raisins, vinous and brown sugar. Smoother roast profile than most. Flavors are of brown sugar, very bitter, leathery. Low vinous, lasting chocolate, warming. Earthy, oatmeal like, some roast. Lasting duration, medium bodied.

patrick767 (3571) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 26, 2012
bottle - Pours black with a large tan head and a rich chocolate malt aroma. It’s full bodied and roasty with good chocolate notes, ample malt, and hops bitterness making its presence clear in the finish. Very tasty.

On tap. Not the most impressive IS i have had. Robust and bitter but lacking in body.

burg326 (3670) - Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2012
22 ounce bottle that pours a black color, aromas of roast, light coffee, huge chocolate, and a touch of marshmellow. Flavors are strong dry chocolate, with a touch of coffee, some earth, and a decent amount of hops in the aftertaste. Nice stout overall.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 11, 2012
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized brown colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque black brown colored body. The mild aroma was malty. The off - the ark mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of roasted malt and dark malt. Not one that I would likely drink again.

Bomber. Pours an opaque black with nice cholatey head, dissipated, but left some nice lacing. Aroma is a big chocolate toffee. Taste is, of course, chocolate malt, but some burnt marshmallow was noted. Alcohol tow, but good with a stout. Very good stout, the only thing missing was more of a mouthy feel.
