3.55/5  rDev -16.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Notes from drinking the 22oz split with my wife earlier on a frigidly freaking freezing day in the Northeast. I thought that would be the time to crack it open. Poured into enormous Dogfish snifter.
Bottle Graphics: 8/10. Enticing.

I want to start that Southern Tier has been hit or miss to me on several occassions because they push the envelope. I, unlike many, loved the Creme Brulee. This one actually falls in the middle though- didn't love it nearly as much as Jahva but didn't find it hard to drink like the Cherry Saison.

A: Body-- Black, nuff said. I see nothing else in the glass from the pour, like a blackest of black holes. Is it possible to have a nearly black foam produced from a beer? These guys may have done it, come pretty darn close.

S: Melted chocolate bar, the sweet Ghiradellli chocolate, not garbage choclate. Maybe some good hot cocoa syrup, again- not the nestle bunny stuff, the high maintnance fu-fu fancy chocolate. I need to hunt for it but there is a spice flavor in the aroma that comes out when its cold.

T: Intense chocolate, diabetics beware. I think I like the Creme Brulee better because I am more of a butterscotch fan than I am of raw chocolate. This is nearly as intense and that is saying a lot. Not kidding when I say this tastes like a melted high-quality 80% chocolate bar with alcohol burn. It does not taste like any other beer I've tried or even like a beer.

The 11% is felt in the taste, no games being played. Different flavors come out more than it did in the aroma- coffee, cashew. As it warmed off, I didn't find it as pleasureable- I enjoyed the burn.

M: Decadent like many of the ST brews. Smooth, chewy, minute amounts of carbonation. Lovely alcohol burn that warms all the way down to the chest with the heat.

D: Oh yes, this will warm you on a cold winter's night. Between the feel and punch of the alcohol and the sugar content I am glad I didn't take on the 22oz myself.

4.73/5  rDev +11%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

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.
