3.73/5 rDev -1.8%
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).

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.

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.
