look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Founders Snifter glass

a- poured dark as night with a slight caramel colored head. slight carbonation is visible.

s- sweet chocolate smell, slight alcohol background. for whatever reason, it smells so sweet I can swear I smell orange. I know it sounds crazy, especially because this is not my first one.

t- total sweet chocolate taste, a little alcohol burn. warms you up nice. not as much as when I first tried this beer. It has settled down a hair and I can only image the taste after aging longer. Don't get much coffee taste at all.

m- a little heavy but not to thick. nice carbonation.

o- another home run for Southern Tier. One of my favorites. It's a step below a KBS ( but isn't everything else).

Dark coffee black. Tan bubbly head leaves nice laces.

Rich sweet chocolate and roasty espresso. Vanilla and caramel.

Bitter dark espresso roast. Rich sweet chocolate. Vanilla and caramel and a splash of booze. Touch of cherry? Bitter coffee and resins linger on the palette.

Rich smooth and creamy. some chewiness. Low carbonation, appropriate.

Overall, fairly sweet but smooth and tasty. A desert in a glass for sure. You'll want to split a bomber between at least 2, perhaps preferably 3-4.

Poured from a bomber into a Fuller's pint glass

A - Very dark brown, minimal tan head, very slight lacing, head recedes to just a rim around the glass on the surface of the beer.

S - Predominate smell is of sweet chocolate, with maybe a hint of coffee, that is all I get.

T - Once again lots of chocolate, and some coffee, a slight medicinal finish, can certainly sense the alcohol.

M - Medium bodied, mild carbonation, slight sweetness

O - For me a nice brew, very heavy

22 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip; no dating on the bottle or label. Black body with a tint of red when held up to the light. Just a slim amount of tan head that dissipates almost immediately.

Very strong aroma of chocolate throughout the session of this beer. A small amount of coffee aroma come through as well. Not a complex aroma as these two notes dominate, but it does smell good.

The flavor is a little more dense than the aroma, but is still predominantly the chocolate and coffee, as expected. Added in the flavor is the roasted malt and touch of toffee/caramel. A hint of bitterness that aligns with the coffee keeps this one from being overly sweet.

Thick and smooth texture in the mouthfeel. Overall, this brew comes across with a very good blend of the coffee and chocolate. I normally rate most ST beers low due to the excessive sweetness, but this is one of the best I've had.
