Bottle. Started at 45d. I was not a fan of this beer. The best thing thing about it to me is the strong and inviting chocolate aroma. It's there up front at the start and remains present throughout. But there is also a strong alcohol presence in both the smell and taste that overrides the nice chocolate. At 10% ABV the booze overpowers the chocolate and anything else. Not sure what to pair this with other than dessert. I would much rather have the fantastic Organic Chocolate Samuel Smith at half the alcohol and exponentially more flavorful and enjoyable.

P- Wegmans in mechanicsburg, PA

A- dark black with no light penetrating through. A light tan head head that is a half finger but hangs around a bit. A splotchy lacing on the glass that is aromatic in itself.

S- Chocolate fudge!!! oh my this is inviting. toffee malt as well.

F- taste is exact same as nose.

M- creamy and medium bodied. fudge on back end and goes down fairly smooth.

O- a very good imperial stout and this is worth a case!!

Pours a dark black with a thin tan head and no lacing. Lots of dark chocolate sits pleasantly in the nose. Dark chocolate again in the taste with a slightly bitter aftertaste, but the same you get from actual dark chocolate so it makes sense. Incredibly smooth mouth feel.

Taste fatigue sets in pretty quickly, so I recommend sharing this one of you get the bomber.

Split between two snifters from a 22 oz bottle

Color is black, nearly opaque. Thin tan head with minimal retention. Some lacing . Smell is chocolate fudge. It really dominates the aroma, drowning any competing smells. Taste is similar - chocolate fudge, finished with bittersweet chocolate. The bitter finish helps to balance this sweet beer.

I liked the look, lace, head, body and aroma; however, while the initial taste was a subtlety sweet taste, which I enjoyed, it had a sort of less-than-satisfying aftertaste. Still a quality stout.

22oz bomber poured into nonic. Shared with friends over a game of Cities and Knights. Silky thick pour yields a thin tan head that quickly fades to nothing. Very dark brown with lighter edges. Unsurprisingly, the aroma is dominated by chocolate both sweet and dark. There’s also some malt, vanilla, and leafy hop aromas. The taste is again dominated by chocolate: milk chocolate sweetness, some bitter bakers chocolate, cocoa powder, and fudge. An enjoyable earthy leaf bitterness cuts through and marries up to vanilla, roasted malt, and espresso. Medium body, thick velvety slick texture, low to moderate carbonation (more than the appearance indicates), slightly drying on the finish with a bit of alcohol burn.
