To me this is Southern Tiers best brew. I really enjoyed this beer! Deep chocolate flavor with a good aroma. This beer to me is a top notch chocolate stout that I will purchase again for sure. Hides the ABV well and goes down smooth.

Bottom Line: Great chocolate stout!

Poured from a growler into Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Pours a pitch black color with a large, creamy, dark tan head. Excellent retention and lacing. Smell reminds me of straight up chocolate milk. Not much beer aroma going on with it, I would swear it's chocolate milk if I were blindfolded. Taste definitely follows suit. There is bitter and sweet chocolate notes right up front. There is some lingering alcoholic notes and a bittersweet finish. Medium carbonation and full bodied. The beer's finish is long a sweet. This is definitely one of my favorite flavored Imperial Stouts, definitely recommend giving it a try if you can get it.

Pure blackness and the creamiest head of any beer around, this truly special brew is a work of art! Tremendous lacing and a thick tan head sits atop the darkness for the duration.

The scent is one dimensional but that's not a bad thing. Pure milk chocolate in a glass of milk the aroma is sweet and wonderful.

The taste is chocolatey, slightly metallic but creamy at the end. Touch of alcohol ruins what could be an intense sweet chocolate finish. I don't get a lot of malt but there is a dry chocolate malt taste within the body of the beer. It very well constructed, very tasty and smooth to drink.

Darker than expected with a tight, light brown head. As expected, however, the aroma is full of chocolate. Bitter chocolate is indeed the most pronounced flavor, but there is so much more going on. Vanilla, some coffee, and oak. Wouldn't be surprised if this were barrel aged (but not bourbon barrel aged). Long, dry, chalky finish with hints of marshmallow. The 10% ABV really warms on the way down, too.

To recap, huge flavors, well balanced, great texture, and a heaping helping of booze. What else would you expect from Southern Tier? It's excellent.
