Pours nearly black with very little head. Retention is non-existent, just a faint ring.
Smell is malted milk. Roasted malts, chocolate and Whoppers. So good.
Taste is alcoholic malted milk. There is no better description. Toasty notes with light hops, rum-soaked fruitcake and vanilla. Great complexity and balance.
Full bodied, very light effervescence, rich, warming and oh so smooth. This is phenomenal beer. I highly recommend it.

22 oz bomber poured just minutes ago.

Appearance: Dark body and very minimal head. Head is non existent within seconds, with a light ring around the top left.

Smell: Damn good! Chocolate that's a bit roasty. Slight hint of alcohol too.

Taste: Chocolate is all over at the beginning, and steady from there. Slight alcohol and a roasty vanilla? It's quite a bit more complex than the aroma presents. I like.

Mouthfeel: medium body, not creamy, but close to it. Big thumbs up.

Overall: I like this offering. Smell brings you into it and taste along with the thick mouthfeel bring it home! a

bomber (22oz) served in a snifter glass.

pours an opaque black tone with less than a finger of a khaki/mocha colored head, only a half-finger despite an aggressive pour - not unusual given its 11% ABV - which quickly recedes; spotty lacing.

the aroma is one of the more delicious perfumes that has ever entered these nostrils; about as mouth-watering a beer as a chocolate fan is likely going to whiff - and i'm no chocoholic. rich, decadent chocolate all over the place, maybe a touch of booze in the background. tough for anything to live up to the expectations set by that nose, but choklat comes damn close. just really tasty, a completely chocolately, fantastic beer. i think the adjective "delicious" is oft overused, but for me this beer is just that; color me impressed. the alcohol surfaces a bit in the finish but doesn't negatively impact the beer.

nice mouthfeel, its medium body is velvety smooth. average to below average carbonation. definitely a sipper, and one to savor.

Bottle from cellar, about 1 year old. Acquired in trade. Seemed like a good Game 7 sorta beer. Poured ~8C into a stemmed flute.

A: Jet black, small head and minimal lacing.
S: Nestlé Quik syrup. Hershey chocolate syrup. Sweetness and chocolate. Is there a beer in here?
T: Some roasted notes wityh a milky thick sweetness and a great deal of chocolate that comes across as an artificial version of chocolate. Bitterness is there and builds over time with a roasted bitterness that builds a little too sternly for my liking in such a sweet dessert beer.
M: Thick and sweetness that sticks to the tongue. Lighter carbonation that lets the beer come through.
O: Maybe a bit old? The chocolate is still there, but it just comes across as artificial chocolate sweeteners. Meh. I expected much more especially after loving the Crème Brulée.
