22 oz bomber poured slowly into a small glass

A - Frothy, tan-colored head settles into a pillowy 1-2 fingers with bubbles of varying sizes. Dark but allows little bit of light penetration. Little bit of wet, slippery lacing.

S - Coffee, alcohol, sugar, molasses, little bit of graham cracker

T - Lot of chocolate. Burnt sugar and alcohol.

M - Silky, soft, bit of carbonation. Interesting contrast to the boozy flavor.

O - Interesting but the chocolate, booze, burnt sugar flavors just don't quite work together. Not sure if age would help or not. I think plenty of people will find this enjoyable. Not my bag.

Pours a near pitch black - no light gets through when held to sunlight. Thick, foamy, tan head forms with great retention. Significant clumps of lacing and no syrupy coating on the inside of the glass.

Nose is a bit mild - sweet lactose, malt and a hint of chocolate. A bit subdued but nice.

Flavor is on point. Great roasty malt profile, well rounded and balanced. No off notes, no hint of the significant ABV. This is relatively standard but truly well done and better than average for sure.

Feel is pretty great. Smooth, rich, velvety. Nice body, not too thin but not too thick, overly viscous/sticky/syrupy. Really a bit light but not lacking in depth at all. Incredibly easy and quick drinker here, unexpectedly so.

The nose is full of a malted milk chocolate ball, remember Whoppers, with some grain and chocolate malt.

The flavor is a dry chocolate malt, malted milk, roasted grain and barley, nuttiness and a sweet peanut brittle.

This is just sweet enough and just complex enough to be delicious.

Poured from bottle into a snifter

Appearance – The beer pours an almost pitch black color with a one finger of tan colored head. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is actually heavies to of a roasted malt smell and not chocolate as I would have anticipated. It does however also have a milk chocolate smell that carries with it a lactose and vanilla sweetness. A little bit of a caramel smell and a hint of a darker fruit is there as well.

Taste – Unlike the nose, the taste begins with a huge and smooth milk chocolate bar like taste with tons of milky lactose flavors and a big vanilla presence. This chocolate flavor remains massive throughout the entire taste creating a fantastically smooth milk chocolate flavor throughout. There is a moderate roastiness upfront that gains just a hint of intensity toward the end. Some flavors of cherry and plum also develop on the tongue throughout the taste mixing with the milk chocolate and the roasted flavors to leave a delicious lightly fruited sweet milk chocolate bar flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is super thicker and creamy with a carbonation level that is low. The feel is amazing for the rich milk chocolate flavor so the brew coating the tongue in all the rich flavors and creating a very smooth and lush feel.

Overall – This is a delicious and decadent chocolate brew. The mix of big sweet chocolate with the fantastically smooth feel make for one very nice sipping dessert beer.
