3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle- Pours a black color with a small tan head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, with chocolate and coffee to round it out. Taste follows the aroma with roasted malt, chocolate and coffee and some caramel sweetness. Mild bitterness in the background with a dry finish. Full body, smooth, thick and creamy. No real hint of the 7.5% ABV. very nice balanced. Goes down easy. Good beer without being overpowering.

From notes: Poured opaque ink-black with a 2-finger dark tan/mocha-colored head. Roasty aroma mixed with dairy cream. Nice, full body with a slight creaminess. Flavor is roasty and chocolatey, with a note of dairy cream in the finish. Very pleasantly surprised by this.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep brown in the glass with minimal head. Roasted malt aroma, maybe a hint of a coffee note. Rich mouthfeel, slight sweetness, but still maintains a pleasant roasted malt bitterness as well. Lengthy roasted malty finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Alright, first new stout I’ve drank in quite a while. Hope it’s decent. Really dark pour. Light brown head, settles and mostly disappears, leaving an edge ring of foam. Aroma is, a little chocolate and coffee. Not a lot of roast. About what I expect from a milk stout. Flavor is more roasted than the aroma, palate is smooth and very nice. Good depth of taste, one dimensional but that’s not always a flaw in my book. Not overly sweet, good carbonation. A rather delicious beer in fact. Give it a go.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque brown. Roasted almonds on the nose. Full bodied with an intense roasted mid palate. No sweetness to speak of. Drinks more like an English dry stout.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
when i left the store with this beer i was sort of wondering why i was doing such things, because i hate sweet stouts. but i love southern tier and it was a small bottle. it pours much lighter than i imagined and not nearly as viscous. dark brown to black color nose of caramel oreos, cookie, biscut, almond, biscotti. taste is sooty, with a nutty sweetness that sneaks in the end there. this is my dessert and its not nearly as sweet and gross as i thought it would be. still, probably wouldnt buy it again unless i was doing a pairing thing or making a chocolate stout cake.

Tap. Creamy tan head on a nearly black body. Lots of malted milk balls, chocolate, light roast, sweetness, and chocolate. Loads of milk lacto sweetness, chocolate, lightly toasty and some roast. Medium body with vibrant carbonation. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from beckley’s with born on date of 2/6/12 consumed 6/12/12.
dark and pretty much opaque with a tan head.
aroma is a lot like whoppers...malty, choco, milk, bitterness, some hazelnut-like nuttiness and a touch of coffee.
flavor is much the same... sweetish but bitter coffee-ish finish helps clean it up. it gets to tasting a little ilke peanut butter cups as it warms...with a coffee back...
creamy when sloshed around but it remains quite easy to drink. 7/4/7/4/15
