One of the best American brewed stouts I've tasted. Has that perfect balance between not too heavy, not too light, not too coffee flavored and not tasteless. Reminds me of some of the better stouts I had in Ireland during a month of stout tasting and general mayhem. And for those of you who have not experienced it, all Guinness does not taste the same.

I tried this from a Nitro-pushed tap, which adds to its creamy character. This is not a Hop-head beer, and I wouldn't recommend it to my friends who like those burnt coffee tasting stouts. This is just a well made American version of a not quite traditional Irish stout.

Dark brown body and a thick, mocha colored head.

Lots of roasty chocolate in the nose, some lactose sweetness as well. Pretty on dimensional but I like it. I tasted a little milky sweetness but it was definitely in the back round. Hugely sweet chocolate and plenty of roasty char dominate this one. Again, not much in the way of complexity, but I thoroughly enjoyed my bottle.

Palate medium, creamy, lively carbonation

Appearance 3, Aroma 3.75, Flavor 3, Palate 3.5, Overall 3.3125
Another mediocre offering from Southern Tier. The burnt taste is pervasive and has a long hang time. Fortunately the sweetness makes this tolerable. Incidentally I like stouts, just not this one – the burnt taste is just too overpowering in the absence of any chocolate or coffee flavors.
