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

bottle into tulip

appearance: solid black with 1 finger tan head, intricate lacing

smell: upfront milk chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, minty chocolate, amazing smell

taste: huge milk chocolate flavors, not very bitter, just milky creamy chocolatey goodness. Some mint chocolate comes through in the body, with notes of vanilla and very subtle espresso flavors balanced in. Alcohol? Haha, you could almost mistake this for chocolate milk! Very pleasantly disguised. The finish is chocolately and minty, very smooth and creamy. Chocolate taste lingers quite awhile, just amazing.

mouthfeel: so thick and full bodied you may think you're drinking a milkshake....exceptional

overall: I will have to do a blind test with a Stone IRS to determine my favorite, but this is probably equal. Amazing milk chocolate flavors, this is easily the most chocolate dominant stout i've had, luckily Souther Tier is literally everywhere so I will be buying this many, many times again.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A- pours pitch black with a two-finger dark tan head that retains for about a minute after the pour, small patches of lace remain after settling

S- straight up chocolate! The aromas are reminiscent of liquid tootsie roll, melted chocolate bar, bakers cocoa. This without a doubt the most chocolate forward beer that I've ever smelled, it sets up nicely for the flavors

T- exactly as described, pure chocolate. Reminded of a chocolate tootsie pop and chocolate pudding cream pie, the finish has just enough hop bitterness to balance is out but finishes with a bitter-sweet chocolate linger

M- medium body with low carbonation, creamy mouthfeel transitions into a velvety finish with just a touch of warming alcohol at the end

O- this is the perfect dessert beer and a must try for chocolate lovers. This is seriously sweet chocolate perfection that I could drink after every meal. The best chocolate beer out there IMO.
