COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an extravagant, immoderate beer. We mixed together our three favorite things - beer, chocolate and coffee. A rich stout serves as the backbone, with organic black malt and chocolate malt providing a luscious foundation. During the boil, we add artisan chocolate from our friends at Taza. During conditioning, we add coffee from out friends at Coffee by Design. Then, this concoction is oak-aged, resulting in soft vanilla notes. We hope you enjoy this beer as much as we do.

[US West Coast Trip 2013] svart med väldigt söt aroma av kaffe och chocklad. Väldigt kraftig i smaken vilket jag gillar. Välbalanserad.

Pours dark brown/black color with tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and oak. Bittersweet mocha flavor with roasted malts and some oak. Medium to full body with minimal carbonation.

Pours an opaque black with it initial brown head that?s short lived and turns into a spotty top. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee which really does make a good mocha, oak, vanilla, and a good overall roasted malt profile. Flavour is dark chocolate, creamy mouthfeel, coffee, mild bitterness, oak and vanilla. Really nice beer for what they?re going for!

Draft at Sybarite Pig. Tulip. Black opaque pour with very thick dark tan head. Very nice lace throughout. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is rich malts, bitter coffee, chocolate, and finishes vanilla. Mouth is very smooth with a bitter aftertaste. One of the best from Peak.

From 22oz bottle. Pours deep dark black with large mocha head, settling down to a good lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate, sweet creamy coffee, vanilla, & hops. Flavour’s of bittersweet chocolate, bitter coffee, hop bitterness, oak and a slight liquorice coming through. Good carbonation, with a medium bodied mouthfeel, the finish is long and bitter, a little astringent on the back of the tongue. Kinda reminds me of an Oak Aged Yeti, but the oak is kept in check here.

Blackish pour. Aroma is pure mocha, lots of oak and vanilla. Flavor is very similiar. There is a weakness to the base beer that hurts but the cocoa, coffee, and vanilla notes are nice.

ludhaber (126) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 20, 2013
A very complex beer with expertly balanced contributions from yeast hops and malt. Vanilla, chocolate notes are very well done accents along with subtle oak tannins. But this beer has big malt to incorporate all these fine elements. Very interesting beer, not by the case but sip by sip. A lot fun to taste.

Black, complex, chocolate, coffee, stout. Strong but not bitter; Chocolate versus vanilla works really well.

650ml bomber pours dark black in color with a finger of light beige head that settles quickly and leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate and caramel with some hints of dark fruit. Taste is a chocolate malty and fruity sweetness with a roasted malty bitterness and hints of coffee. Medium to heavy body with adequate carbonation. A nicely done imperial stout that is definitely recommended for a pleasant tasting experience.

nuplastikk (6289) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2013
22oz bomber split with Anndiesel. Pitch black body, beige head. Sweet cocoa, coffee aroma. Quite a fantastic Stout, the big luscious chocolate tones remind me a lot of some great Danish Imperial examples, or maybe a mellower version of a Southern Tier. A nice balance between the chocolate, oak, and coffee. Really covers/incorporates the alcohol well, delightfully drinkable. Peak makes some solid beers that fly under the radar, and this is one of them.
