4.08/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass. Liquid portion comes out brown in color. There are brown and deep red highlights troughout the beer. Not much of a head on this one, tan in color and goes away pretty quickly.

Smell is ok, better than the average stout. Has some bitersweet (maybe a little more sweet than bitter) chocolate and some coffee, so mokah I guess. There are also hints of roastiness and smokyness. Slight earthy hop presence in the nose as well.

Taste is easily the best part of this beer. Like many from this brewery it's sweet, but not overdone. Plenty of coffee and bittersweet coffee flavors provided by the malt. There is also a smokey and roasty flavor to it as well. There is also a bitterness at the end. The bitter and sweet are very well balanced, like having coffee with your dessert.

Mouthfeel is good. Not too heavy for a stout, but certainly not too thin, I'd go with medium bodied. Good carbonation level with a nice bitterness at the finish. Well balanced and full flavor. Nothing not to like. A solid offering from Southern Tier.

3.74/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle served in a pint glass
Pours a very dark brown that is a few shades lighter than black, fairly opaque it doesn't allow much light through but does throw some highlights on the edges. The head is about a finger thick, light tan bubbles that fall to a thin layer in some time. The smell is a touch of roasted malt combined with lactose sugary sweetness and dark caramels or light chocolates. The taste is similar to the smell as the lactose sweetness leads the way bolstered by the chocolate notes and finished with a touch of roasted malt bitterness. Hop aroma and flavor is nearly nonexistent, there may be just a touch of bitterness coming from hops with the bulk from the malt. Trends a bit towards the sweet side, especially up front while the body is incredibly creamy and smooth both due to the lactose and a high level of fine bubbled carbonation. Overall a good stout, I'm not the biggest fan of the style so personally I"m not thrilled by this beer but would say that it is well done and should be liked by fans of milk stouts.
