A - Pours black and impressive cream colored foam. Minimal lacing, and almost no carboantion at all.

S - Smells creamy, malty, with a hint of smoke. Really could make an air freshener out of this.

T - Hearty malt, rich flavor that is creamy and full of roasted taste. A real treat; you don't feel treated at all.

M - Heavy, thick, and full bodied. You feel like you've had a big stout. But you aren't cheated one bit.

O - I've noticed Southern Tier does big beers well. They go big and I like them. Anything else seems underwheling. This is a tasty big stout. I'd have it again.

poured from a bomber dated 11/11/11 into a chimay goblet. havent had this brew in a while, so looked forward to trying this out of southern tier's generally delicious black water series

a- pours black/brown with no light shining through. dark khaki colored head foams up and then fades quickly, just sticking around lightly around the edges

s- creamy sweet chocolate and roasted malts. ever so slight hop. nothing overwhelming, but a very pleasant nose

t- mmmm typical southern tier sweetness. creamy chocolate and malt sweetness. some nice bitter nop towards the end to balance out the sweetness nicely. sort of an earthy hop and oat aftertaste lingers.

m- starts very creamy and smooth, but as it warms, the booze starts to show a bit. nice thickness with low carbonation is right on par for the style. definately a sipper

overall, a very tasty stout, although a bit on the sweet side. pretty typical for southern tier big stouts. value is just ok at $10 a bomber. there are better southern tier black water stouts in my opinon, but this one is pretty tasty anyways.

'Tis "black as a moonless night," but the tan head resembles more of a sun-soaked Irish girl than perhaps a California blonde. In other words, it's white with only a tinge. The nose, as you'd expect, is oaty. In this world of evermore, I can't help but want chocolate and coffee. Oh how I love beer and coffee....

Love the smooth oaty feel. I bet I could put my own sunburned Scotch-Irish ass in a tub full of this and it'd soothe and heal me! There is a bit of harshness in the aftertaste especially, a measure of this abv. Why's it got to be so strong, anyway? Oh yeah...evermore.

I taste oats. Go figure. I taste Willamette hops. Are they white? For a beer so dark, it tastes so pale. It's a bit of a disappointing dichotomy. It's like the bitter hops only prevent a sweet-candied, molassy mess. It's strong, and mostly smooth, but it's ehh.... There's just nothing neat about. To be frank, it's forgettable.
