To start with, I love stouts and I love chocolate and/or coffee stouts. I've enjoyed so many brews from Southern Tier, I could not wait to taste this one.
From the time, I popped the cap, I knew I was going to be in for something good. The pour was like a dark mountain river water, cascading over rocks , splashing along the way until it hits its destination.
It almost poured like a dark thick chocolate syrup. The aroma was beyond what I anticipated. I couldnt even wait to evaluate the other characteristics, I quickly took my first sip.
It wasn't a beer, it was like drinking the most round and full chocolate beverage, rich in flavour, perfectly balanced, a big mouthful, long lasting after taste. The CHOCOLATE comes through loud and clear.... BUT it is also gentle.
Anyone who has tasted other Chocolate Stouts, really needs to try this one. It was a close to perfect as any beer I have tasted in the past several years
I want this one over and over and over again. As a beer, as a desert, as a treat, this is
something very special
One thing I did notice at this tasting. While everything was what I said it was, it did have a bit of a strong alcohol taste this time. Not that that was bad, but I've had high ABV stouts that seem to mask the alcohol better.
This one was from an early 2013 delivery. The chocolate in this one is coming out much more pronounced, but its a sweet mellow rich chocolate. Each sip gives me more and more chocolate. The nose does appear to be a bit boozy. But the taste is not. Loving this one For the real chocolate lover, you dont have to like beer to love this
