Yet another quality beer from Soutern Tier. One of the breweries I always look forward to seeing at the LCBO.
Smell is chocolate and coffee. Smooth and sweet. Taste is light milk chocolate is very sweet and has a slight bitter aftertaste. There is a bit of a kick in the aftertase that could be a little smoother, but i'm not complaining. Mouth is creamy, the carbonation is very mild.
Overall, as i stated above, another quality beer from Southern Tier. I think i need to visit the brewery

Super, oily, inky pour. Heavy and viscous with a two finger tan head. Lacing is chunky and sticky.

Dark chocolate syrup, dark roasted coffee, vanilla, brown sugar, fresh baked bread. There is a touch of molasses and licorice.

Chocolate syrup, espresso, molasses and vanilla. Super rich, super decadent.

Medium to full body, slightly syrupy, medium carbonation really sticky on the lips.

Pours pure black with a smallish espresso colored head. Short head retention, but good amounts of lace on the glass. The aroma is roasted barley, dark chocolate and brandied plums with some spicy booziness evident. huge chocolate flavors - dark, milk, raw nibs fill the taste. A bit of earthy coffee and some caramel add to the complexity. Pine forest hops lay in the back, providing a good bitterness for balance. The wall of malt and chocolate flavors is kind throughout though. The mouthfeel is thick and viscous with light carbonation. The finish is bitter from the preponderance of black malts more so than the hops, and quite chocolatey. Alcohol is evident throughout - a spicy kick - but never distracting.

This is a nice Imperial Stout. Very full flavored, worth a try. It could have a bit less alcohol presence and a bit more hop and coffee presence.. Then it would be world class!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

A - Pours pitch black, finger of head with some retention and no real lacing.

S - Chocolate explosion, sugary malts, hints of espresso, caramel, vanilla and a touch of burnt toast.

T - The sweetness is present but not overwhelming, literally tastes like chocolate milk with an espresso flavour that lingers on the finish. Solid cocoa profile, hint of ABV sweetness, but for 11.2% the alcohol is dangerously hidden.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and sticky on the finish.

O - Dare I say one of my favourite offerings from Southern Tier. Flavour profile is tasty but not overwhelming. I had no problem taking down this bomber alone. A worthy ale and definitely worth seeking out.

Beer is black with a smallish tan head. Fades relatively quickly.

Smell is predictably full of chocolate and coffee, leaning toward the former. It is a milk chocolate scent rather than dark chocolate, a significant creamy component. Smells like dessert, there is no doubt about that.

Taste is the same. Lots of milk chocolate, some coffee, some caramel. Vanilla. Very sweet. Doesn't have any roast malt or hoppy element to it. Quite nice but you can only drink so much.

Full bodied, moderate carbonation. SIlky smooth.

Overall, pretty much what you would expect. Dessert in a bottle. Some is very nice but not a beer you can go through a lot of.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Black liquid with slight tan head.

S: Smells primarily of fudgesicle ice cream bars.

T: Grass and chocolate fudge up front, caramel in the middle, and some coffee with roasted barley malt on the back end along.

M: Medium to thick viscosity and a low level of carbonation.

O: A sweet and fantastic tasting imperial stout with chocolate, caramel and coffee flavours. My only complaints are that this beer could have better head retention and more carbonation.
