deep black in color. nice choklat aromas and taste. excellent imperial choklat stout!!!! MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2008
Bomber shared by my friend Chris- A deep opaque black motor oil pour with plenty of mocha froth and nice lace. Nose is socompletely dominated by freshly melted milk chocolate, that there might as well just be chocolate in the glass. Black coffee and anise make an appearance, but this is just so chocolatey. Tastes of bitter dark chocolate, coffee beans, some anise with a nice hop profile, leading to a sweet milk chocolatey finish that is creamy, and leaves no trace of the ABV whatsoever. I drank my serving in only a few minutes and was left wanting more. Excellent beer. In terms of a chocolate beer, I don’t think one could smell any better. drfabulous (8224) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - DEC 16, 2008
More mind games from Southern Tier. This is not a stout so much as it is a cold bottle of hot chocolate. Lots of lactose in it. You might think a marshmallow should be added if that is your thing. A dessert beer along the lines of the Creme Brule. hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2009 Bomber! . A dark brown red pour. Aroma of chocolat is huge. Flavor is just smooth rich chocolate with a hint of nice bitter and pleasant abv. Solid full mouthfeel and good carbonation, a bit too sticky. Very easy drinker just a hint of oddness at the end. radagast83 (8191) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2008
22 oz bottle. Pours very black with a small tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and heavy on the candy bars. Flavor is great. Like a liquid Three Musketeers with alcohol. The alcohol is not that noticeable for a beer that is 11 percent.

Poured almost black with a brown head. There was a strong chocolate aroma just like you were having a glass of chocolate milk. The beer was thick and creamy with full chocolate flavor. The beer was very smooth and had an initial sweetness of milk chocolate, but finished with a bit of bitterness like semi sweet choclate that lasted on the palate really well. The 11% alcohol was masked really well in this beer. Only a hint of alcohol was detected towards the finish with a mild bit of warmth. Excellent beer!!!!!!! ilovedarkbeer (2744) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2008
Almost all the way black pour with a nice medium sized light brown foamy head. Nose is chocolate, brownies, coffee, roasted malt, Mouthfeel is fairly viscous and smooth, with almost no burn at 11 percent. Taste is just liquid dark chocolate, coffee, fudge, and a bit of booze. Very nice. fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 14, 2008
On tap pours pitch black with very little head. Has a bittersweet chocolate aroma and sweetness like candy. Has a medium body. Flavor is sweet rich hersheys chocolate with some alcohol added. I don*t know how they do it, but this brewery makes crazy sweet beers that taste spot on to what they have brewed and this is no different. Nice job. HoPPyToNy (17) - USA - DEC 14, 2008
Pours a deep dark amber black. The smell is an overpowering aroma of dark chocolate. It pours a thick black, with about a finger of tan head. The taste has a touch of alcohol heat, and dark chocolate. Very drinkable though. A meal in a glass.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 Aroma of dark chocolate, nuts, roasted malt and liquorice, completely black, held the glass up to a 60 watt bulb, no light passed, a firm medium sized cappuccino head, plenty of lace. Flavour has dark chocolate, roast malt, coffee, liquorice, brazil nuts, wood, alcohol is noted. Thick like melted chocolate, very well balanced, complex, oily, so bitter, alcohol has a fine burn, being a bomber and 11%, it should be slowly paced, but it is so fine I want to drink it quickly. Marvellous.
