3.79/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: black/dark brown. decent looking tan head recedes quickly to a film and the edges.

S: sweet molasses tang

T: bitter coffee and sweet molasses. the taste is enjoyable but flavors are not very complex, little interplay, not much depth.

M: a little tingle from the carbonation, quite dry. almost watery.

O: There's nothing horribly wrong with this brew but something is lacking to pull it all together. packs quite a punch and tastes okay.

3.73/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottle: a nice 355mL brown bottle with a decent label - a nice package.

Appearance: pours an extremely dark brown tending towards black, with rudy-brown highlights around the edges. A half-finger creamy tan head hangs about for quite a time before dropping to a solid and rocky cap. Looks great.

Aroma: a fairly demure nose of roast coffee, creamy milk and a touch of bittering cocoa.

Taste: plenty of roast coffee and sweet milk flavours, bittering cocoa behind. Not as sweet as the nose but still quite smooth.

Aftertaste: still some milk sweetness with hop and cocoa bitterness. A great stout.

Mouth feel: very smooth with a bit of bite, moderate in body with lower carbonation.

Overall: this is the first beer I have had from Southern Tier Brewing, and they haven't disappointed. A fine stout, well worth it when I can afford (not cheap in Aus).

3.89/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

a. dark brown/ black on the pour. Careful, the head sneaks up on you. Starts near nothing, but blossoms to a full 3 finger height. Head is tan/brown in color and sits on top the beer for a while at roughly 1/3" Lacing is nice.

s. Smell of yeast dominates the after poor, giving way to malt.

t. Malt, not as sweet as I had hoped, but somewhere between outstanding and very, very good. Rounded up to a 4.

m. Excellent up front, but seems to be a grit in the finish.

O. Reminds me of a Sam Adams cream stout, which is a compliment. Not as creamy, but a solid stout. Do not be scared off by the 'sweet' title.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours black, just about opaque. The hops and grains unexpectedly dominate the smell, though the typical chocolate stout scent is found just beneath. The semi-sweet chocolate becomes the most obvious to taste, with a grainy, bitter hops lingering in the finish. It has a very light mouth feel, with an appropriate amount of carbonation. A decent stout, however there is nothing that makes it stand out in stand out in a crowd.
