Excellent milk stout, great dark color with noticeable head even without an aggressive pour, head is dark and lingers well with a strong lace as the glass empties. This is a milk stout and if that's what you're after it will not disappoint. ABV is 7% so I found it very drinkable. Nice creamy vanilla overtones but the maltiness (roastiness) is a slow to arrive. Wonderful mouth feel - well balanced.

'Whoa, what a beer! Take me to the river. Served at a perfect temperature with a colossal, very light tan, thick, foamy head that just sits there and loads of lace. Color is an opaque brown black. Aroma is mainly malt, roast, and caramel, hint of toffee. Flavors like nose, mild also, roast, easy bittersweet. Finish is like flavor, incredibly easy drinking. Choice beer.

It smells like a chocolate milkshake with some coffee and roasted qualities. Hop bite upfront with that cappuccino and slight milkshake taste ending with some chocolate and herbal hops.

The taste is definitely the best thing about this beer. It has a very creamy taste but the texture/mouthfeel itself is not. It can some times be mistaken for a soda because of the zing at the beginning from the hops and carbonation.

The roasted malts really meld nicely with the bitterness and is a unique stout because of how tasty it is yet not very thick like a traditional stout. Definitely a good beer in my opinion.

Wow. Really fine milk stout. I've had many and my standard is left hand. This is stronger, more layered, more intriguing, solid beer, overall. Soft, smooth, but packs a good punch. If you like dark beer, and you like left hand, this will very much impress you.

Well done, Southern Tier.
