2.46/5  rDev -33.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5
Look: very dark brown with some minor hints of red. Thick mocha colored head with fairly substantial lacing.

Smell: Cream and caramel dominate the aroma, with some hints of vanilla, chocolate, and maybe coffee lurking in the background. Several reviews mention mint but I don't get any hint of mint whatsoever. The cream and caramel is quite overpowering.

Taste: It really starts to fall apart here. The same cream and caramel dominate the initial taste, along with a sickly vanilla sweetness that is rather off-putting. There is a nice roasted coffee bitterness on the finish, but it disappears on the aftertaste and leaves the sweet creamy caramel lingering far too long.

Feel: too carbonated, otherwise adequate but unremarkable

Overall: Not the worst flavored stout Southern Tier has ever put out (not even close to the worst, actually), but that's not exactly a compliment. I'm glad I tried this as I had been curious about it for awhile, but I won't pick one up again.

Pours dark chocolate brown with a modest head. Aroma is similar to Baileys, without the liquor smell. Taste is roasted malt with only a hint of Baileys cream. Mouthfeel is moderate but carbonation is quite low, I'm afraid. The flavor profile seems a bit muddled and it isn't clear to me that they achieved what they were aiming at.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of roasted malts, vanilla. Taste is roasted malts, cream, light mint and chocolate. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

Glass: Imperial Nonic Pint
ABV: 5.8%
Serving Temp: 47-54 F

Black and opaque. 2 finger creamy tan head dissipates to 1 finger and stays there until I begin to consume the beer. Then it becomes a ring an thin-but-consistent cover with acceptable lacing.

Roasted malt with noticeable sweetness. Some chocolate. A touch of coffee. And notes of vanilla and mint.

Coffee with light chocolate. Sweet cream. Light char. Mint. A touch of malt whiskey.

Smooth and creamy. The body is medium.

An interesting and tasty cream (sweet) stout. I hadn't known that Irish cream flavor was added before I started reviewing and drinking this beer. This addition is noticeable. But it doesn't (quite) overpower the beer. I like it.

From a 12 oz. bottle with a BB date of 06/14/23. Sampled March 11, 2023.

Nice looking beer that's for sure with its dark brown to near black color under a long lasting tan head.

The aroma is all about cream and bright spices. Kind of like Bailey's Irish Cream. Dark roast perhaps but little in the way of hops.

The mouthfeel is smooth and in the medium range.

The taste is sweet and creamy...but too creamy for my liking. I guess it works well during early Spring around St. Patrick's Day but not something I would go for a second time.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass, this is a good looking beer. It has a moderately dense brown head with reddish highlights showing throughout. The head is large, light tan and frothy. Head retention is excellent and there are thick bands of lacing on the glass. Aroma and taste include a sweet Bailey's Irish Cream aspect, lots of milk chocolate and a little vanilla, The stout type characteristics, especially rich maltiness are very subdued. Mouthfeel is smooth, the sweetness is not overly annoying and the overall consistency is just a bit thin. This is more of a dessert beer than a traditional stout, but it goes down pretty easily. Overall, not bad.

Ruby accented dark brown appearance with a large, lasting tan head and good lacing. Aroma of vanilla, coconut, caramel and and coffee. Whiskey-like note on the tip of the tongue. Still getting a healthy dose of vanilla and caramel in the taste. Bittersweet chocolate and a bit of coffee round things out. Hops are discreet and seem to have little impact on the flavor.
Earthy, creamy medium bodied, modestly carbonated mouthfeel.

1/15/23 Poured from 12 oz bottle bought from Washington Beer Store.

Black with some cream foam.

Aroma is oreos as noted by another reviewer. Buttered popcorn. Bailey's obviously, super carmally sweet.

Taste is carmely and Bailey's. Hazelnut. Not overly syrupy or coating. Rather thin actually for what I was expecting. Nice lacing left on glass. Almost a graham cracker tasting undertone.

A neat little gimmick but wouldn't buy again. (Leah would however, because she doesn't have good taste ;)
