3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle from Cranbury BuyRite. Poured a pitch black body underneath a tight foamy light beige head. Aroma is too sweet with sugar milk, dark chocolate, coffee, burnt malts. Flavor is like drinking a cup of black coffee with a few spoonfuls of sugar added, some burnt toast and a touch of espresso rounds it out. Nice fuller body with average carbonation and a long lingering roastiness. If you don’t like sweet beers stay far far away.

Sweeter stout then i’d prefer but worth the drink. Silky smooth but not a deep dark color,great head to it though.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a jet black, thick as oil. Pure chocolate bomb in the nose. Thick mouthfeel. Sweet, sticky and lingering. Medium carbonation. If you are familiar with Southern Tier’s beers, imagine crossing the Choklat with the Oat and then dialing the intensity back a few notches and this is the beer you get. Some people hate southern tier, some love them. I fall into the homer category who really likes their stuff, this being no exception. The best thing is this is offered in 6 packs for a reasonable price. Kudos to ST for making a respectable imperial stout at an affordable price.

poured from 12 ounce bottle - Got to give it to S.T. for trying this one, but doesn’t work for me overall. Too much alcohol comes through on the end and not enough sweetness--almost grainy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a dark brown color with a thick light tan head. Slight roast and chocolate in the nose but nothing over the top like some of their other beers. Medium, velvety mouthfeel. Slight roast with a dark chocolate sweetness. Almost has a little smokiness to it as well. Ends with a lingering bitterness and leather taste. Overall, not as good as I expected from them.

12oz picked up from the bottle shop in South Philly. Lactic stout... sweet with toasted malts, some vanilla and sugary notes in the finish. Delicious and full flavored, but not overly heavy... easily seasonable, impressive for the 7.5.
