22 oz bottle poured into pint glass. review from notes.
A - Pours a dark black with a slight hint of brownish hues. A light head bubbles up with a tan hue which dissipates to some eventual lacing.
S - Large scents including vanilla, burnt sugar, caramel malt, and a bite of chocolate.
T - Begins with caramel, chocolate and other rich flavors. While swallowing, an eventual wave of borderline offensive flavors wash over the palate. Vanilla, booze, oak, wood, milk, sugar, and way too many other tastes permeate the palate which continue from the beginning of the beer right into the aftertaste. It finishes bitterly sweet with a wave of more vanilla and some boozy warmth.
M - Definitely full bodied, creamy, but not too heavy.
D - There's a hint of smoothness, but the booze and offensive aftertaste make it a little rough.
I usually love southern tier stouts, but this one appeared to be a mess of assorted flavors, especially during the aftertaste. Some people enjoy this one, but it's definitely not for me.
