4/5 rDev -4.8%
A - Rich, black, thick
S - Espresso, dark chocolate, malty
T - Coffee heavy with mocha, not a lot else
M - Over carbonated
O - I find that Southern Tier over carbonates their stouts. It tastes smoother as it's allowed to aspirate an hour or so and open up.

Really excited to see this in stores. Picked up a 650ml bottle for $9.20 CDN. Given the steep price this needs to be mind blowing for a repeat purchase, although Southern Tier has great reputation in my books, given how much I enjoyed Pumking. Served cool (refrigerated then left out for about 45 minutes prior to consumption) into a pint glass.
Appearance - Very dark brown, nearly black colored beer with dark tan head that was only about 1/2 finger and disappears quick. Only left a soapy wisp of head on top. Minimal lacing.
Smell - Tons of chcoloate, mild dose of coffee and maybe a faint caramel note but that's it. Obviously a bit of booze aroma and to be fair the chocolate is layered on top of each other through some rich combination of milk and dark chocolate. Quite delicious smelling, but given that I don't absolutely love chocolate this may not be my thing.
Taste - Irrepressibly boozy, with tons of milk and dark chocolate flavors in there slightly bitter heightened in the aftertaste, but the interplay between alcohol and chocolate dominates. Slight smokiness and caramel and coffee flavors, but all play a supporting role to the chocolate. Quite nice if not terribly complicated flavors. Very chocolate-centric and flavorful overall.
Mouthfeel - Smooth, rich and velvety, low carbonation and almost syrupy feel.
Overall - Really nice, huge chocolate presence but is definitely more of a dessert beer or a beer best served with a couple of friends. Definitely something to sip over an evening by the fire.

Pours straight black with a very thin brown head.
Boom! Hersheys chocolate syrup all over the place. I get a touch of coffee behind the syrup but not much else. Really intense aroma.
Very sweet, lots of different chocolatey flavors, chocolate syrup, chocolate milk, bittersweet baking chocolate. Again some coffee hiding behind the chocolate. Actually a surprisingly strong bitterness which is necessary to balance the sweetness of the chocolate. A bit of an alcoholic burn in the aftertaste which is not unpleasant.
The mouthfeel was odd. It was very sweet but also somewhat thin considering how potent the aroma and flavor are.
Overall, this is an interesting sipping beer. Had a little for dessert and then some with some ice cream, my dad couldn't finish his glass. Very intense, worth trying if you like beer on the sweeter side.
