Live tasting, bottle poured into Duvel tulip...
Appearance; pours onyx black, absolutely minimal mocha colored head with a moderate poor, retention is abysmal, and the fraction of a finger of head vanishes nearly immediately...
Smell; WOW. This guy just jumped outta the bottle and punched me in the nose. I knew I was holding onto this bottle for a reason. Rich, deep, thick, CHOCOLATE. Smells like liquified chocolate. Incredible. The smell of this beer literally jumps out of the glass from a few inches away...
Taste; D.A.M.N. This is like liquid, molten chocolate, lush, rich German chocolate, no, Swiss chocolate... There is some slight hints of malt and a little bitter coffee (or dark chocolate perhaps?) on the finish but this beer is absolutely properly named, and is countless different layers of chocolate.
Mouthfeel; this stout, is in my honest opinion, perfect in this area... Lush, thick, viscous, and decently oily going down... Coats the mouth and hangs around for a minute or two... Absolutely brilliant. Carbonation is ever so slight, but a beer like this doesn't need much.
Overall; this beer is in my opinion, damn near perfect... The smell and flavor is amazing, superb mouthfeel... All around an incredible beer... Southern Tier, you continue to impress me!

This one pours a pure blackness that is dark as the darkest night with no moon or stars. There is a moderate thickness to the head that is rich and pillowy and tan that settles extremely slowly and leaves a shallow ring down the glass as opposed to lacing.
The nose is a fruity bourbon with notes of chocolate, coffee, anise, cardamon, vanilla, toast and raspberries.
The taste is very sharp and the alcohol has a definite bite that combines with the hops to attack the palate and dominate then gives way to a very complex smokey malt filled with a variety of flavors of smoke, bourbon, apples, bananas, coffee, chocolate, vanilla with a subtle peppery tinge in the finish.
The moutfeel is fairly creamy and the beer is a heavy one, especially for an American Stout.
Overall this is an exceptional stout that is very easy to enjoy. I found it went extremely well with some sushi.
