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

A- pours black with a 2 finger dark tan head. Small blotches of lacing polka-dot the glass.

S- chocolate and a lot of pine.

T- roasted malts and bitter, dark chocolate. Nice amount of pine hops that give it some bitterness.

M- medium body and carbonation. Has a slightly dry finish.

O- nice milk stout with good amount of hoppiness, which I like.

Appearance: This brew pours black with a dark tan head. There is some decent lacing.

Smell: I get a lovely nose of sweet caramel, chocolate, roasted malt, cereal, and cream. Can't WAIT to dig in!

Taste: My tongue is immediately enveloped in sweet roasted malts, espresso, milky cream, and bread. There is a faint note of alcohol present as well. This is a MAN's beer! This stout finishes nicely leaving cream, espresso and sweetness on the palate. There is also very subtle hops that are tamed by the cream and roasted malts. This beer throws down heavy sweet malt goodness- just like I like- without being over-the-top-syruppy-gross!

Mouthfeel: This has a medium to heavy tongue weight with ample carbonation.

Overall: This is a phenomenal milk stout through and through. I've had this bottled and on tap, and find myself utterly pleased. It's hard to find on tap. I only know one place: McLadden's in West Hartford, CT. This brew is a real treat. And, with 7.5% ABV at the same price as many inferiors, it's well worth the investment. Southern Tier has never disappointed me. They really know how to make dark, rich beers teeming with complexity.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A- served in a big old snifter with creamy tan head and lots of swirly lace. Body is a deep chestnut brown, almost black.

S- roasted aroma is subdued until it warms significantly and I'm glad this bar was nice enough to have the oversized snifters. Roasted and chocolate, some coffee, stone and mineral with molasses and slight berry tartness. Hints of booze as well.

T- taste mirrors the aroma with less sweetness than expected and big roasted coffee flavor. Very earthy with mild hops and some leafiness. Nice dark chocolate with a hint of acidity.

MF- big bodied and sticky with light carbonation

D- pretty decent but seems kinda dry for the style.

Jet black, completely opaque, the head was stiff and bubbly.

Dry malty, crackery and slightly charred there's a certain weakness." 2X" should be more pronounced.

The taste is grassy and earthy. Charred malts with a dry Graham cracker crust, there's a hidden chocolatey taste but that natural charred grass wins out.

Overall I like it, very rough around the edge but smooth at the same time.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into one of my trusty Half Acre tulip glasses

A - Dark brown with a slight red tinge when held up to the light, very slight light brown head, mild lacing.

S - Get sweet milk chocolate, cocoa, maybe a hint of vanilla

T - Good crisp taste with threads of chocolate and vanilla, some roasted malts for sure, nice finish with a little kicks of hops.

M - Slight creaminess with a nice edge to it, very mild carbonation.

O - I was very pleasantly surprised, nicely balanced brew as some one else said it grows on you as you take another taste.
