look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: This brew pours black with a dark tan head. There is some decent lacing.

Smell: I get a lovely nose of sweet caramel, chocolate, roasted malt, cereal, and cream. Can't WAIT to dig in!

Taste: My tongue is immediately enveloped in sweet roasted malts, espresso, milky cream, and bread. There is a faint note of alcohol present as well. This is a MAN's beer! This stout finishes nicely leaving cream, espresso and sweetness on the palate. There is also very subtle hops that are tamed by the cream and roasted malts. This beer throws down heavy sweet malt goodness- just like I like- without being over-the-top-syruppy-gross!

Mouthfeel: This has a medium to heavy tongue weight with ample carbonation.

Overall: This is a phenomenal milk stout through and through. I've had this bottled and on tap, and find myself utterly pleased. It's hard to find on tap. I only know one place: McLadden's in West Hartford, CT. This brew is a real treat. And, with 7.5% ABV at the same price as many inferiors, it's well worth the investment. Southern Tier has never disappointed me. They really know how to make dark, rich beers teeming with complexity.

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.
