Oh wow! Got to have some of this on tap at Kickbacks Gastropub in Jacksonville. I am a huge fan of Southern Tier and this is a beer that I have been looking forward to trying since they first brewed it.

The beer was served in a 6oz snifter. the color is completely black with a half inch head that that left a beautiful lacing in the glass.

I pick up vanilla, creme, and butterscotch. Very, very sweet.

The taste is similar to the smell, though it's not as sweet as I expected judging by the smell. I get the same notes as on the nose with some toasted marshmallow and burnt sugar on the finish. I don't get any booze, which is scary for a beer that's nearly 10%.

Overall, I this is a great take on an imperial stout. Very creamy and sweet. Extremely drinkable. Well done, Southern Tier. Well done.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

pours dark brown almost black, very small khaki head with minimal retention

smell is great i think, very sweet (reminds me of ice cream) vanilla and burnt sugar.

best way i can describe the taste would be like a very very sweet vanilla cream soda

high carbonaton, light bodied leaving a watery mouth

overall it's enjoyable. expected it to be sweet but was even sweet than expect. no way i could have drank alot of it.

A: Black, aggressive pour achieves no head at all.

S: Eggnog, vanilla, sugar and a little bit of booze.

T: Sugar, vanilla and coffee, way to sweet, bad aftertaste.

M: Milkshake, cloying, sticky.

O: This beer was way to rich and sweet, drain poured the last 6oz or so. The pure sweetness gave me a headache at times. Would not buy again.

Finally cracking this one open. Been staring at me awhile.

Appearance- Black. Ok, maybe just really, really dark brown. Whatever. It's got about a quarter inch of tan head.

Smell- Lots of stuff going on. Roasty, chocolaty, some vanilla. Almost nutty. Toffee and burnt sugar.

Taste- Sweetness. Just sweet as all hell. Toffee. Sugar, candy. Werther's Originals, or possibly french toast. Almost a sweet maple. A little roast? Look, it's all glazed sugar.

Mouthfeel- Surprisingly light carbonation, not too heavy.

Overall- It's too damned sweet. Just unreal. But it's also very interesting and original.

A for effort. Not so much for execution. I like some of these Blackwater beers, but this one is too damned sweet.
