into a pint

A - Pours a mostly opaque brown color, a little bit ruby in the corner. Little to no head formation, mocha (pun) in color. Seems to have a good deal of bubbling to it.

S - Strong - lots of chocolate, hefty amount of sweetness. I also can see some coffee beans and some roast sneaking in there. Big big beer.

T - Starts off really strong, molasses, currants, raisins, chocolate, lots of big flavors. Turns into a more balanced beer with some chocolate roastiness coming in the middle. More vanilla comes in as well, which turns out to be a fairly dominant flavor in the aftertaste. Finishes with a sticky sweetness, candy bar.

M - Full bodied and a moderate carbonation. Comes off thick, sticky, coating. A bit of alcohol warmth from the beer as it sits on the tongue.

o/D- A big big beer with big flavors to match. A desert beer I would fathom, almost replaces the call for a irish coffee. Fits right into the Southern Tier style. Pretty filling, and lots of abv to manage...go slow.

650ml bomber poured into tulip 8/6/13, cheers liamt07 for the bottle

A dark cola with a foam that has about the same retention of cola, perhaps my glass is dirty, no lace

S coffee fudge and chocolate syrup come out strong followed by some Kahlua and chocolate milk, just a hint of booze, so simple but so good

T burnt brown sugar and the roast is slightly darker then the nose, still lots of chocolate syrup but with some raisins, less booze then the nose but still noticeable

M not quite the body I was expecting from the color but far from thin, bubbles fluff up and flatten out quickly, syrupy but only a little sticky with some booze heat going down and a lingering burnt coffee finish

O smells and tastes great, simple but I love it, a little hot and not as thick as I was hoping for but something I'd keep an eye out for and maybe hide under the stairs

perhaps not the best night cap, now I have one eye wide open from the coffee and the others shut due to booze, I suppose there's worse things in life

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: black and accented with dark cherry; cappuccino head never adds up to much and vanishes quickly

Aroma: chocolate at first, then some dark roast coffee, but the chocolate returns to dominate with a bit of black licorice; rich and only lightly acidic, bitter

Taste & Mouthfeel: dark chocolate with an espresso bitterness in the finish; silky, oily texture and some powdered cocoa; luxurious flavours linger for ages; medium body and just right carbonation; hint of orange peel, cinnamon

Overall: at the end of the day it's real chocolate flavour, not overwhelming, too rich, or sweet; would like more coffee influence to really get that feeling of a mocha, it's too subtle

A - pours slightly lighter but still damn near black, head is shy of a finger, lacing and retention virtually non existent. The Oat consumed immediately prior to this is much stronger in all attributes.

S - tons of bitter sweet chocolate and roasty bitter coffee malts. Super sweet and syrupy.

T - lots of syrupy bitter chocolate and roasted coffee, decent alcohol burn, sweet vanilla. Super delicious

M - thick as hell. Drinks incredibly smoothly, hardly any carbonation. Sip worthy

O - delicious taste and an incredibly smooth drinker.
