12 oz bottle DOB 9/19/14 at 40 degrees into tulip
Aroma of roasted malt
Head small (<1 cm), light brown, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 3 mm partial ring
Lacing poor – few short arcs of tiny bubbles remaining when the partial ring lowers
Body dark brown/black, opaque
Flavor of burnt malt but somewhat sweet, not bitter. No hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
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.

The head was minimal, and was beige. The beer color is non-translucent, dark brown.

The aroma is of roasted malts, and wood.

The taste is similar, but with the lactose sweetness, and a stronger than anticipated hop bite. On the low side of heavy bodied. It has low carbonation.

Not as good as I thought it would be. Just an okay beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 2

poured from the 12 oz bottle into my new belgium goblet:

A - pours darker than cola; leaves a full finger of caramel looking head, and nice sticky lacing.
not a BIT of clarity - I cant see light thru this when held right up against the bulb.

S - stouty INDEED. choco-malty. no hops to the nose. pleasant

T - bitter without the hoppyness (?huh?) I just knocked off a full point on the taste.
bitter on the aftertaste as well. did I get a bad bottle?

M - thick like a stout ought to be - but the taste is getting worse

D - ;( NOT to be purchased. I'll force this one down rather than waste - but under protest!

Appearance is cola-brown with a tan head that has plenty of bubbles.

Nose is sweet lactose and malt, with cola and chicory.

Taste is a mix of dry and sweet. The lactose sugars are desert-like, and the malt flavor comes through dry and nutty. The sweetness can be cloying.

Mouthfeel is limp. Not under-carbonated, but watery.

Overall, it is just an unremarkable milk stout. I love Southern Tier, but this one can be left on the shelf.
