Canned on 7/31/19. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours almost black with a creamy khaki head that falls leaving great retention and nice lacing. The aromas have some vanilla leading the way along with some caramel. Subtle hints of cocoa and chocolate. Malts are there. The flavors basically follow the nose. More vanilla and caramel. Some coconut in the mix. The sea salt definitely comes through and accentuates everything that's going on. The chocolate does its thing. There's a sweetness to this one, but it's definitely not cloying or over the top. Nice malt backbone. It finishes with a subtle warmth, but it's not hot at all. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of full-bodied with low carbonation. It's creamy and velvety while remaining light and slightly "watery". It's basically what you would expect from a nitro beer, more or less. It's smooth.

This is a nice "dessert beer". Nice aromas and flavors. It's basically what you would expect from a Southern Tier stout. It might not be my new personal favorite stout from them, but it's still good stuff.

2 April 2020 - Beer #65

Corona Day #21

Price: $3.99 at Quarry Wine and Spirits in Baltimore

Appearance: 5 - what can you say? Nitro beers are hotties. The video shows it all. I'm left with a beautiful frothy tan head that looks like it'll never move.

Nose: 5 - like I mixed a chocolate milk with the Hershey's syrup.

Taste: 4 - yeah, pretty much like chocolate milk. Fairly mild.

Mouth: 5 - extremely thick and frothy. Nitro is like magic.

Overall: 5 - won't win any awards, but just plain fun to drink. I should buy a few sixers.

Sampled in a taster glass from draft at O'Toole's on November 1, 2019. Southern Tier's Blackwater Series now offers a next-level drinking experience with its newest launch, Nitro Chocolate Milkshake. Using nitro capabilities with smooth chocolate, vanilla profile with a hint of Himalayan sea salt, this brew offers cascading, creamy richness that is a step above traditional imperial stouts.

Southern Tier has created a rich and creamy chocolate milkshake with 10 percent ABV. This beer is smooth and deceptively delicious. It smells like milk chocolate - Willy Wonka style. This is a sweet dessert beer and I am drinking this one in front of a fire reminiscing about all the chocolate from my youth. Give it a try - it's definitely worth it!

Picked up a 9.6 oz single from the Craft Beer Hop Stop cooler 10-22-19 for $3.99. Canned on 9-25-19; consumed 2-1-20.

Beer poured black with a beautiful tan head that has some great hang time.

Nose is a pleasant chocolate milk forward.

Taste is chocolate and lactose forward with a nice touch of high concentrate cocoa to help balance some of the sweetness.

Mouthfeel is light bodied and not overly smooth.

Overall a very nice dessert beer, fun to try!

Taste: sweet, milky, chocolate, nutty notes, smooth finish. Lactose, malty coco nose. Black/brown, opaque, tan soft nitro head some lace. Medium to med/light body. A little thin to be an imperial stout.

Huge frothy nitro head to start

Cocoa/vanilla dominates the nose

Not unlike a chocolate milkshake, with a bit more vanilla, a hint of booze.

Mouthfeel velvety, but ultimately feels quite light and undercarbonated; trading some front end smoothness for backbone with the nitro

Nobody does desserts like Southern Tier
