2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Toffee caramel nose with a hint of hop in the mix. Opaque black with good amount of carbonated head. Fairly light body for a stout. Middle of the road, half-hearted attempt. Not impressed.

Creamy. Burnt but little coffee or choc. Smooth, really smooth. Made me happy to see Dom appreciate some hops tonight. Shame I couldn’t get hold of a Rodenbach though.

12 ounce bottle- poured out a nice opaque reddish-brown with a moderate head. Aroma was a nice brown sugar and malt. Taste was brown sugar with a strong alcohol back. Palate was smooth and creamy, very nice. Just one question, Southern Tier Brewing is in...New York? This Georgia man finds that mildly disturbing...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 fl.oz. bottle.
Pours dark brown with a light tan thin head.
Aroma is subtle chocolaty and a little sour. Palate is medium body with soft carbonation. Sweet and bitter aftertaste.
Taste is shallow of roasted malts and chocolate. Slightly sour and bitter with vague notes of hops.
Overall a very light and easy milk stout without much complexity (or taste). Not great but very drinkable.

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.

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.
