look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Jet black body holds a tan cover that leaves a bit of lacing. Opaque save a ruby edge when held to light.

Smell: Coffee, roasted and slightly soured grain.

Taste: Coffee really punches through a sweet malty base. Roasted coffee and grain blend to give a generally balanced, rich flavor. Earthy hop profile keeps it traditional in style.

Mouthfeel: Some odd blend of fizzy and creamy. The fizz was a bit annoying, but once it degassed for a bit, it got much better.

Overall: A nice sipper. I like Southern Tier, but they seem to go with a "flavored" beer. The added flavor here is the coffee, but a slightly sickly sweet vanilla something in the background. It's a good overall package, a slow sipper.

Thanks to Vic for bringing a sample up from San Antonio

12oz bottle in a pint glass. Thanks to my BMC drinking pal, Joe, for thinking of me and always keeping some goodies on hand.

A- Pitch dark, near black color with a dense 1-plus finger head, mocha-tan color. Pure rings of lace.

S- Fresh roasted black coffee, some bittersweet chocolate. Roasted malts and oats.

T- More dark cocoa and toasty oats and malts than coffee. The coffee aroma was so strong that I thought it would dominate the flavor. Some caramel and creamy sweets, too.

M- Good body and feel, chewy. It has enough hops for a little kick. Creamy.

O- Nicely balanced. The flavors blend. I just may have rated this a little higher if I'd have taken it on a winter day.
