UPDATED: JAN 1, 2019 Dear lord, where to start...Sweet, aggressively sticky and indulgent, layers of chocolate, caramel, bourbon, almond, cherry, and molasses accented by slight woody oak notes and lingering habenero spiciness and maple syrup. I want to like this beer--I really, really want to, considering both its pedigree and price--but goddamn is it sweet, unrelentingly sweet, viscous and sugary and ultimately too verbose for much more than a flight pour. (I opened a bomber. Bummer.) I'm guessing the maple syrup is the bridge too far, because I love me some Mexican Cake and Biscotti Break, and I really love straight Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break, but this pint ain't for me.

22 ounce bottle poured into a teku. The beer is a thick dark brown with a beige head of foam. Sweet and roasty taste. A bit of chocolate cake and some spice. Bigger body and medium carbonation. Cybercat (7467) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 16, 2018
Pours opaque coffee with a fair tan head. Aroma presents toasted coconut, bourbon, roast malt, woody and chocolate notes. Flavor provides toasted coconut, chocolate, roast malt, peppery, bourbon-soaked wood. Texture delivers firm, smooth body and lively fizz. Take a break!

Bomber, 2018 vintage. Sweet chocolate cake aroma with notes of maple, bourbon, vanilla, coffee, cinnamon and a little bit of habanero. Pours deep brown, almost black, with a thin light brown head that has little retention or lacing. Starts with sweet chocolate cake flavors of chocolate (of course), vanilla and cinnamon as well as having a rich, full body and silky smooth mouthfeel. Finishes impeccably smooth with some coffee and strong maple, bourbon and oak flavors as well as a slight habanero burn at the very end. Very sweet and malty and very delicious. slowrunner77 (15449) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 25, 2018
Dark brown with tan head, from the overpriced bottle. A good beer, but overly sweet, and lacking the complexity the name implies. Sweet while lacking in maple character, chocolate and barrel sweetness, alcohol, light almonds. I'd get this again for a third of the price. joergen (31743) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2018
