4.43/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured a 22oz bomber aggressively into a snifter.

Appearance: Very very dark and opaque. A little bit of dark brown around the edges. A thin light brown head.

Aroma: Caramel coffee creamer with semi-sweet chocolate. Also the smell of Hershey's chocolate syrup.

Taste: Like drinking cold chocolate milk laced with irish cream. The coffee is mostly evident in the aftertaste as a black coffee bitterness on the palate. There is the smallest hint of hop presence when it first hits your tongue but that is quickly replaced by a chocolate syrup flavor that really takes over your whole mouth. At 11.20% abv, this beer isn't joking around and it seems like the alcohol hides in plain sight. As the beer warms, that Hershey's chocolate syrup taste reveals itself to be the alcohol. Given that observation, there is limited range of temperature where this beer really shines (around 48 degrees, as specified on the bottle). Otherwise it becomes overly boozy. Very much a dessert beer, with a chocolatey aftertaste that sticks around for a good while.

Mouthfeel: Thick but not cloying. Seems a tad over-carbonated but the carbonation fades so quickly in your mouth that it doesn't hinder the smooth finish.

Final Thoughts: This is the first Southern Tier beer I've ever had or reviewed. It definitely leaves me wanting more and wanting to try their other offerings. Although it's not a beer that Joe 6-pack would go for, I think anyone can enjoy this one if they know what to expect going into it. It delivers on every level.

4.26/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- Pours a pitch black with a large, foamy espresso colored head.

Smell- A huge nose that is full of chocolatey notes with subtle coffee and caramel as well.

Taste- The chocolate takes the forefront again with nice coffee undertones. Sweet and full of flavor but very drinkable.

Mouthfeel- Full bodied. The alcohol is hidden well which makes for awesome drinkability.

Overall- A complex, refreshing stout that hits the right notes on almost all levels.
