A - Basically pitch black. Poured no head, but left a thin ring around the surface. Light lacing and nice alcohol legs.
S- Big, rich chocolate. Decadent. Rich caramel, slight tropical and dark fruits when you really dig in.
T- Rich chocolate up front followed by caramel, roasted malts, and light licorice from the booze. Finish is roasty, a touch spicy, and bitter chocolate. Nicely crafted and complex.
M- Medium body. Creamy on the tongue. Very drying with a bitter aftertaste.
O- This was a good beer. I enjoyed the experience, but I could only drink it occasionally. The dryness and bitterness at the end was a touch overwhelming at times; however, overall, this was a nicely crafted beer with a ton of flavor and nice dynamics. I give it an A.

Pours a deep dark brown and has some lighter brown hues at the edges of the glass. Scant head of chocolate colored foam that fell fast but leaves great legs to look at as you drink. Nose is every shade of chocolate. Chocolate, fudge, chocolate syrup, chocolate brownies, cocoa nibs, sweet and bitter chocolate. The roast takes a back seat in the nose but does give up a faint hint of espresso. There's a bit of hop character on the nose and as this warms you will notice a berry like fruit in the form of a subtle lightness.

Taste is an explosion of chocolate. Rich belgian style chocolate. The roast has a big toasted character and comes forward as much as it can but seems drowned out by all the chocolate. It's deep and willful though and in the end it shows a nice grain with a touch of blackness and bitter of it's own. The roast is endless and is trying to reach infinity with the endless chocolate. The mouthfeel is silky, creamy and smooth. There is no alcohol on the nose and only a enough on the palate to make it delightfully boozy and warming. The carbonation is perfection and tickles the palate. This beer is sweet. It develops a bit of caramel as it warms and to the delight of the palate a duo of chinook and williamette hops lend a graceful bitter to the long and satisfying finish.

Southern Tier has gone crazy for chocolate and has made a stout that will satisfy your every fantasy about chocolate.

Pours black. Two fingers tan head with nice retention.

Aroma of bitter bakers chocolate. Sugary sweetness on the nose as well.

Taste is bittersweet chocolate, malt and sugary sweetness. Slight roastiness.

Medium mouthfeel and carb.

Quite a nice beer. Big on the sweetness but doesn't overpower. A great value at under 8
