3.63/5  rDev -14.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep black into my Celebration Pint glass. A nice brown sugar colored cap sits atop this mammoth. Decent retention, and leaves some nice lacing.

The nose is incredibly boozy, was not expecting that. It smells like melted Ghiradelli through and through, thick and syprupy. It smells incredibly sweet and choclatey, thats about all I can pick up.

The taste, much like the nose, is incredibly boozy. The syrupy Ghiradelli chocolate that I picked up in the nose is gone, and replaced with a much more subtle chocolate note. Again, huge on the sweet malts. Just not what I was looking for. I was told this was the "chocolatiest beer" that some people have ever had. Well those people really need to expand their horizons because extremely chocolatey, this is not.

Mouthfeel is surprisingly light. I would categorize it at about medium, but I'm used to big stouts (especially those north of 10% ABV) to be thick and chewy. This was surprisingly light. Still smooth and creamy, with a light carbonation bite I wasn't expecting.

Drinkability is ok, nothing special. It drinks every bit of it's 11%. I struggled to finish the bomber.

Overall, I should have expected this, but I thought it would have been better. Southern Tier has let me down time and time agian, and rarely am I really impressed with their beers. This is just painfully average.
