650ml into snifter.

A - Dark black, completely opaque with a thin bubbly tan head.

S - Liquid dark chocolate, cream/milk, molasses, slight roast.

T - Reminds me of hersheys chocolate syrup and whole milk. Very rich and flavorful chocolate. There is a good amount of roasted malt coming through as well. Not as sweet as the nose suggests (which is a good thing).

M - Silky, soft, and creamy. Full body, crisp, warming alcohol.

O - The most impressive offering I've had yet from Southern Tier. The chocolate is delicious and the roast really compliments it well.

this beer i had in a stone russian imperial stout glass
had a 22 oz bottle
poured a beautiful color and super choclate smell
which was followed by a smooth chocolate taste which was amazing
it is pretty easy to drink and then i look down and see the ABV was 11%
and no wonder i had a little buzz lol anyway this is a great beer
one of my favorite that i have had from southern tier so far
definitely worth trying if you have not your missing out

2010 vintage
22oz. bomber poured into a snifter.

A- dark black/brown with some brown/ruby highlights on the very edge. Tan/mocha head, dissipates quickly, little lacing down the glass.

S- Some seriously high quality dark chocolate, and as it warms you can pickup on just a hint of booze. Chocoholics rejoice.

T- Chocolate in the beginning, chocolate in the middle, chocolate on the end. In your face, and seriously delicious. Some warming alcohol middle to the end and a touch of balancing bitterness.

M- Thick, viscous, light to maybe medium carbonation. Really coats the palette.

O- I love this stuff. It's very much a dessert beer, but good gravy it's fantastic.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

650ml bottle poured into goblet. ABV 10%.

A - Poured a very dark brown to almost black with a thin short lasting chocolate milk head.

S - Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, coffee and toast. Smells inviting.

T - Dark chocolate, black coffee, very toasted bread, some sweetness, a dose of alcohol in the middle, the hops in the finish are overshadowed by the toast/chocolate bitterness. As it warms the alcohol and burnt notes become more apparent.

M - Medium carbonation, medium-high body, creamy, syrupy, sticky, bit of an alcohol burn but still tame for its ABV, finish seems a bit thin.

O - Good Stout. The strong flavour and high ABV make this one a slow sipper.
