Pours opaque black like brewed coffee. No head. Smell is mostly chocolate and coffee. Mouthfeel is odd, much more carbonated, like a porter or lager than expected. Taste is balanced chocolate and coffee but fades fast. No lingering flavor. Not very complex. Not bad but expected better.

I had one of these a couple of years ago and wasn't that impressed but I wanted to homebrew an Imperial stout and I figured this would let me know if I wanted to add coffee and/or chocolate to it.

A - Black color with a light khaki colored head with light lacing. Doesn't pour too thick but still creamy.

S - Tons of chocolate and coffee aromas pound your nose with a nice stout backbone after the initial hit. The chocolate and coffee meld extremely well with the roastiness of the stout. You can definitely tell they were not beating around the bush with the other ingredients; from the smell this is literally a mocaccino drink mixed with a stout.

T - Great sweetness that is held with the chocolate and roasted notes over the complex coffee and malt flavors. It seems as though there is lactose or low attenuation because the flavors coat your mouth and let you soak the sweet mocha in. Not too overpowering or too cloying with the roasty stout balance but lots of flavors in there and it makes you want another drink. There is some alcohol warmth but it doesn't detract.
M - High mouth-feel and some may think of it as cloying but it is more flavorful than just sweet. Light carbonation which may lend itself to not helping the body seem more drinkable. On the thicker side but not quite as thick as Ten Fidy or some >11% Imperial Stouts.

Overall, this a delicious flavored Imperial Stout. Couldn't drink more than one in a night but this is a very tasty stout that has the alcohol to put you down when you want a cafe mocha at 10pm. And maybe you've tried this before and didn't like it I would suggest you try it again and maybe you'll love it. Not overall my favorite beer of the style, but I really look forward to having it again next year when it comes out again.

Bomber poured into a snifter shared with my wife.

A: black as midnight. Very thin head that retains after a good ten minutes. I let it warm up a bit

S: wow lots of chocolate. Slight coffee but mostly dark malt and cocoa.

T: good night that is like cocoa powder. Even the hops just give it the same bitterness that cocoa powder would have. Very smooth though. Coffee takes a backseat. Not as balanced and tasty as FBS to me but really a chocolate forward and not coffee forward beer.

O: great beer when you want a chocolate bomb. Accomplished well. Not my favorite but darn good and nice price point and availability.
