12oz bottle from my Father in laws cellar. Dark brown, tiny ring of bubbles. Aroma and taste are spot on for the Girl Scout cookie vibe. Smooth, slick, sweet. Coconut, chocolate. 2018 bottle, still solid. Absolutely worth it.

A truckload of Samoa Girl Scout cookies collides with a pallet of Almond Joys. Add some sea salt and voila - you get Samoa This. This high powered dessert beer from Southern Tier is a tasty concoction which goes down very easily. I like this beer a lot. It's sweet but not too sweet. A great blend of chocolate, caramel, coconut and salt. Good work Southern Tier!

Pours dark brown almost black with a three finger airy head.
Nose is the best part. Incredibly sweet coconut and whipped cream. Smells like a Samoa cookie.

Mouth is very thin which is a little disappointing after the big nose. Coconut , chocolate, lactose , caramel and whiskey.

Enjoyable dessert brew. Make the mouth thicker and it would be a bomb!!

Rating based on style and ingredients. Dark brown color when poured into a glass. Coconut is the main flavor in the nose to me. Coconut is hidden slightly in the initial taste by the chocolate. Coconut is very present in the aftertaste. Fairly smooth for the ABV and coconut. Delivers on the labeled ingredients and is 100% a desert beer.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Dark, dark brown pour... nearly black with a finger of off-white head. Nice ring of lacing.

S: Roast and coconut. Sweet and toasty.

T.F: Sweet up front. Toasted/roasted grains, dark sugars, and coconut. Not much char... some vanilla and caramel. Chocolate. Medium bodied.... creamy mouthfeel and carbonation. More toasted coconut at the finish.

O: Almost like an almond joy in a glass. If you like coconut this beer will be up your alley. I don't typically go for sweet/dessert stouts but this one hit the spot.

Appearance: Pours an opaque fudge brown with a thin head that disappears; spotty lacing

Smell: Chocolate, caramel and coconut - basically smells like a Samoa

Taste: Sweetened chocolate with caramel and toasted coconut; the sweetness builds but is just shy of getting too cloying; some booziness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low carbonation

Overall: Southern Tier pioneered this style but, with this one, they have dialed it back; the mouthfeel is thinner than expected and the flavors taste a little artificial

Another impressive desert beer from Southern Tier. Nice coconut, caramel, chocolate smell and taste. It does what it says it will do and does it well. Pretty impressive. I will revisit soon.
