Poured into a Brawley's (Charlotte, NC bottle shop) snifter at 9 AM on a Saturday morning, wonderful desert or breakfast beer.

These guys just plain make good beer, and this one is fantastic. Pours jet black with minimal head and lacing, loads of malt in the nose and a creamy mouthfeel. The chocolate is ever present in this viscous concoction, and lingers long after the last sip. Wonderful beer from a brewery that doesn't seem to make anything but amazing beer. Definitely pick some up and try it for yourself.

Poured from a year old bottle into a snifter at around 45°F

Appearance: Pours a solid black with a one finger foamy brown head. Looks fantastic

Smell: Straight milk and bakers chocolate, with undertones of vanilla bean and booze

Taste: They ain't jokin with this chocolate stout! I get all varieties.. milk, dark, and bakers chocolate. A chocolate overload and not much else

Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel; Silky smooth with slight bitterness

Overall: I was taken aback by this one and don't quite know what to think of it yet. Is this even a beer? Smells and tastes like liquid chocolate to me, which isn't a bad thing at all, but I expected more complexity in a stout. Could the year of age have mellowed out the malts which brought out more chocolate? Id pick up a BBCS or a Founders IS before this any day, and theyre cheaper too. I definitely prefer more of a roasted malt presence, but this is quite the dessert beer. Good job Southern Tier!
