3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bought as part of a mixed six at wegmans. Date on bottle is 3-19-12 so it's a good 10 months old. Brown sugar, cocoa and dirt aroma. Very md head which slowly dissipates into nothing. Very light body for a stout of this abv. Taste is very hardcore cocoa and espresso. A solid stout. Glad I tried it but nothing I'd buy again.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by Dutchdrebus. Opaque pitch black, small light brown head that diminishes fairly quickly. Smell and taste malts, roastyness and some sweetness. Slightly a hint of coffee. Soft carbonation, low to medium body. Expected a bit more of this but it’s still a nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A delicious sweet stout. Haven’t had one of these in a while. Aroma was decent. Chocolate, roasted malt and milk. Pretty sweet. Pour was a deep dark black with a small splotchy tan head. Taste was delicious. Sweet and milky with a perfect balance of bitter roasted malt and chocolate. Nice carbonation. Very good beer. Not cloying or overly sweet. Just enough of everything.

just okay...lacks complexity. weak head, light nose, body is soft with a lightly abrasive exit...the 7.5 is well masked by sweet chocolate notes and the faintest whiff of fruit and coffee...really, a forgettable experience.

Sweet stout. Nice body. Enjoyed this Southern Tier offering. Recommend this for those who don’t like a boozy imperial stout, but also don’t like a watered down weak stout.
