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 itís 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 isnít 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.

Brown black pour. Nose of cocoa nibs, chocolate liqueur, licorice dark cherry and soft roast. Flavor is more chocolate liqueur, light gritty roast, dark fruit and faint licorice. Lingering roast and bitter chocolate. Chewy mouthfeel. Pretty solid.

tmoreau (3266) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2016
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served displaying a black/brown hue, with a fairly persistent hat of tan froth, and wavy ribbons of lacing. The nose was heavily roasted, cocoa, and malty creaminess, with a slight woody scent. Medium to full bodied, with moderate carbonation, the taste added a touch of dark fruit sweetness, and a roasted, resinous, & earthy bitterness that lingered, finishing with a bit of tartness. An Imperial Stout that was hefty, slightly creamy on the tongue, and hid itís abv fairly well. Especially suited our present weather condition!

On tap at jerryís. Midnight black with very little head. Really nice smell, sweetness with some backbone. Molasses. Perhaps served a bit too cold unfortunately. Really nice taste though. Coffee and brown sugar are prevalent. This is very good. Iíd recommend.

Pours a deep dark brown with a wispy tan head. Some lacing. Creamy chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and a hint of alcohol in the aroma. The flavors are chocolate, espresso, cherry, and vanilla. The hop character is low, but there is some bitterness at the finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and slightly creamy. Overall a good stout. The 10% abv is hidden well.
