Taste: Bold, roasted chocolate, hazelnut, malt, molasses, semi sweet, maybe a hint of tobacco. Deep nutty, malt and cocoa nose. Black, mostly opaque, with soft foam head and lattice of lace. Medium body if not full. Makes a good after dinner dessert ale. 33 IBUs

Deep brown color where light shines through the center. It appears to be clear. Lasting beige head with random minor spots throughout the glass for lace.

The smell is truly like chocolate and hazelnuts. Think Nutella flavored hot chocolate.

The taste starts like powdered cocoa with a dryness I wasn't expecting given the smell. Light cream initially. The swallow has a bit of a bitter bite but it is largely nondescript. I also get a metallic taste that is a bit distracting. The aftertaste is relatively short and is similar to the aftertaste of chocolate milk. Full bodied with a low level of carbonation.

Bomber. Clear dark mahogany pour with a tall tan head with decent retention. Notes of roasted malts, smoke, dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans, some oxidation and roasted hazelnuts. Medium body with a high carbonation and a roasty bitter-sweet finish.

Thought this was amazing, tons of nut and nice but not overwhelming chocolate flavors. Great body and super smooth. Not hot at all. Really enjoyed.
