COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich, decadent and full-bodied. The intense, roasted malt flavor is derived from two types of chocolate malt and raw cocoa nibs. Whole vanilla beans introduced post-fermentation adds complexity and enhance the dessert-like qualities.
As depicted on the label, this full-bodied ­beer salutes American pilots who airdropped packages of chocolate into post-­WWII Berlin, bringing joy and community together in the face of adversity. We’ve partnered with Food For The Hungry who we consider to be the “chocolate bombers” of today, delivering regular food rations and non-food items to the struggling people of South Sudan who are in desperate need.

One of my favorite all-time beers! Tasty to the max, full-flavored, easy to drink and enjoy porters. All the flavors of chocolate, vanilla and banana are easily recognizable. Just a really good beer to enjoy.

Not a lot of chocolate in the aroma. This is really tasty. An excellent chocolate flavor, very strong but very very good. (Note: had lots of beer left over from the party in growlers..this one held up the next day the least).

Growler courtesy of hophead22. Pours dark brown with a nice, sustained tan head. Nose is dominated by roasted malt, dark fruit, some chocolate, peppery hints, caramel. Tastes of roasted malt, chocolate, mildly bitter, spicy, some figs and prunes. Rich, velvety mouthfeel with a peppery, slightly dry, roasty finish. Excellent!
