look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours a black color with a half finger of a tan head

Smell is roasted coffee, cream, caramel, Man I get a lot of coffee

Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, cream, bittering sweetness?, mild earthy hop.

Mouthfeel is a little lighter then expected for 7.5, medium light, a little high in carbonation for the style imo, creamy finish though

Nice stout here, good deal and not that ridiculous sweetness of the backwater crap(I mean series) Give it a go if you see it. Live, 2xIpa, IPA, Pumking and now this, I am really starting to like this brewery. Besides the overly sweet backwater series I have liked everything I have tried from this brewery!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12 oz bottle into shaker pint.
A: Pours pitch black with a couple mm light tan head that quickly recedes. Thin sticky lacing.
S: Caramel and chocolate malt with a hint of coffee and cream.
T: Follows aroma almost precisely...more of an alcohol presence here which gives a small boost to the predominately darker taste characteristics (caramel, chocolate, coffee).
M: Light-medium body. Fairly smooth with a bitter coffee finish. Hint of astringent hops in the finish too.
D: A decent brew, but not excellent. Seems like the latest thing for milk stouts is to pump up the ABV...and this one handles it well.

Poured into an Elysian snifter. Pours pitch black with a fine one finger light brown head with awesome retention and lacing. Aroma dominated by chocolate with mellow roasted malt; sweet. Flavor is chocolate, nuts, mild roasted malt. This is sweet and viscous, very reminiscent of a stout with whipped cream added; there is a detectable whipped cream element to the flavor. Nice medium to heavy, creamy body with a mouth feel that wouldn't be out of place from a nitro pour, although this is fron a bottle. A very nice mildly sweet stout. In my opinion, Southern Tier is the master of sweet stouts and this is another winner in their line up. A must for those who like the sweet stout style.
