look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

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!
