look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A- A firm black with a mocha head of about 1.5 fingers that quickly dissipates. Not much lacing to speak of as one can usually expect of a sturdy 10% stout.

S- Milk chocolate and fudge resonate on the nose. A health amount of roasted character comes through in waves.

T- An abundance of chocolate and cocoa powder make for a beer that is like a candy bar in a glass. Tootsie roll. Robust, near abrasive roast that plays a perfect balancing role with the sweet chocolate. Warmth of vanilla/oak finishes off the drink in the back of the throat.

M- While I could go for it to be a little more full and viscous on the tongue, overall, the mouth is quite nice really. Creamy, yet finishing dry. Almost powder like. Not a flawless effort to hide the alcohol, it was still a noble one.

O- I had my doubts about this one since I haven't loved some of ST's other offerings, but this one really hit the spot for me. An intense dessert beer that generates complexity and refuses to be ordinary.

$8.99 for a 22oz bomber

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Bomber bottle poured into a Tulip Glass.

Appearance- Pours a nice Black, no light appears to come through whatsoever. Head is about a finger and a half, poured somewhat vigorously down the center midway to see if I could get a head. Tan in color.

Smell- Instant, huge blast of chocolate. Who would have guessed :D? Smells fantastic, slight hints of malt and an earthy smell. But strongly chocolate dominate.

Mouthfeel- Thick, and creamy. Carbonation is not high, and is excellently done. Everything meddles in the mouth well.

Taste- Taste leads exactly as the nose does. Large chocolate taste upfront, with mid notes of earth, and malt, slight alcohol hit, somewhat expected with a 10%. Covered very well though, and incredibly smooth.

Overall- A very good beer. If you are not a fan of chocolate in your beer this is not for you. It nearly reminds me of chocolate milk mixed with beer, in a good way. I think a dessert beer is a good description, as it is not mega complex and is easy to enjoy.
