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.

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.

Bottle thanks to Cal. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is strong cocoa nibs, dark chocolate, roast. Medium mouthfeel with strong roast, cocoa, dark chocolate, and bitter finish. Decent.

ZombieDuster (4) - Hebron, Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2014 does not count
Strong effort, nose is a bit yeasty, color and head are very nice....just the way you hope. Mouth feel is a bit weak. Taste is solid on the front and middle but more bitter on the end than this beer calls for. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AirForceHops (2944) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 4, 2014
22 oz. bottle with a bottle date of Oct, 2012 thanks to queenholy about a year ago. Dark brown color almost black. Thin a very thin ring of head around the snifter. Aroma is chocolate malt, bakers chocolate, and light espresso bean.

Alcohol is hidden pretty well, yet for a higher gravity beer I was expecting a much fuller, bold body. Flavor is mild chocolate and roasted malt with a pretty large hop bitterness showing in the finish. The finish shows anise and light alcohol burn. Even after sitting awhile, you can tell that you’re drinking a 10% ABV stout. Its gets sharper as it warms. Pretty nice mouthfeel with a smooth velvety texture. Good Impy stout, not top tier.

ICEatALAMO (909) - Troy, Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. The pour is dark, little head. The aroma is mostly chocolate malt. The taste is a little light and a little harsh taste. Wish there was more chocolate and coffee. Roast is noticible for sure, hides he abv. Overall was expecting more.

solidfunk (3605) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 2, 2014
A lot of vanilla and cacao stand out on this beer. Pours black with ok head and lacing. Thick consistency with a fairly bitter finish. Some roast malt, but the chocolate and vanilla really dominate this. Bottle thanks to Bmoosey.

Taste is some roast, sweet chocolate, mild vanilla bean notes, bitter coffee, creamy mouthfeel with a slightly lingering boozy note on the finish. Solid.
