Choklat pours out nearly black with a small tan head. Alcohol legs run along the glass with larger bubbles forming on the outskirts of the head.

Smell is chocolate, a bit of chocolate, then some chocolate. Honestly though, deep cocoa aromas run wild in the aroma but they remain one dimensional. A sweetness prevails at first, then deeper dark, malty aromas fold in.

Taste is a bit more balanced with some roasted bitterness to compliment dark chocolate flavor.

The mix of sweet flavors and medium body make this beer dangerously drinkable.

Overall, a good Imperial Stout but not one I would try again. Good for dessert.

A - Black opaque, dark tan head. Some lacing.

S - Chocolate and roast, and a definite smack of alcohol.

T - As with the nose, lush and full, crossing into the close with a nice snap of bitterness. Brownie batter and dark chocolate.

M - Mild carbonation and enough drying and booze warmth to keep the weight from taxing the palate.

O - Over the years, it is this beer that best epitomizes the promise of Southern Tier. Delicious.
