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.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter a chocolate brown with a thin brown head Aroma is funky almost artificial. Reminds me of Christmas ales. Taste is decent. Dark chocolate coffee & a sweetness that isn’t quite superb. Think I am getting cinnamon with this beverage & that pretty much kills it for me. Carbonation is slightly more than one would appreciate in a true stout. Overall this an acceptable stout but its all over the place with intention. The base is good but there was a weirdness of flavor here that told me to go no further than half of the bomber.

Received in trade from ajzy, thanks for thew opportunity! Pours a solid dark brown/black color with a decent sized tan head that persists for a while before falling to a cap on top. Smells of roast and chocolate with a solid earthy hop edge and a faint plastic phenol. The flavor is roast and chocolate up front with enough roast and earthy hop flavor to provide more than enough balance. Light bits of dark chocolate and Hershey’s syrup mixed with a faint oxidized character round things out. Thick body with a light level of carbonation and a sweet rich chocolate mouthfeel. Nice brew, a couple of minor flaws, I enjoyed it for what is was.

22 ounce bottle, bottled October 2012. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch light tan head. Head retention is OK, and there’s a lot of lacing. The brew smells mostly like roasted malt and dark chocolate, along with some coffee and dark fruit. It tastes like roasted malt, dark and milk chocolate, coffee, burnt/charred malt, and some dark fruit. There’s a nice lingering sweet chocolately finish. I think it tastes better compared to the aroma, the flavors just seem stronger to me. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s creamy and coating with a good amount of carbonation. Definitely worth a try, I wouldn’t mind picking up a bomber of this again. $7.99 a bottle.

Opaque chocolate with a small tan head and threads of lace. Taste is sweet carbonated malt, turns slightly bitter in the palate, only to return to a fizzy caramel in the finish. Complex, interesting, good balance. Recommended.

Charred oak aroma, mild chocolate notes. Black, thick beige head. Medium body. An even mix of chocolate and coffee initially, but the chocolate fades, leaving only coffee, potting soil, and sourwood. Prunes underneath.

Bomber thanks to Beau. Interesting standard deviation on this beer I suspect. Pours a jet black color with a medium brown head, orange edges. The nose is cocoa and hops. The flavor is bitter dark chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, roast, milky, a great soft palate. Finishes fairly bitter. Good. I think this really improved as it warmed.
