3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: A viscous sweet stout with some weird flavors. Meh.
How: Bottle 12oz, consumed a month or two after purchase.
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head.
In long: Nose is hot-chocolate, some phenols, tar, black liquorice. Taste is rather sweet which is not surprising coming from Southern Tier. Sweet black liquorice, burnt cereals, molasses, hot chocolate, ink, worchestire sauce, salty soy sauce. Body is very viscous, more so than a 7.5% stout should be. More than just lactic notes, I thought this beer was in-your-face milky. This beer didn’t work for me, not something I need to drink again. Not bad per say, but a little 12oz was enough, just an excuse to add another rating to ratebeer. And our beloved ratebeer website may not be the best thing on the internet but it is not so bad either, what really saddens me the most about the internet is all the weird sick stuff you can find out there and how I’ll never have time to see it all.

Sweet and tasty. This is a nice stout that is surprisingly mild for a double.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black/brown color, rocky, bubbly two-finger tan head, thick cobwebs of lace. Taste is strong caramel malt that has so much sweet toffee, that no other tastes have a chance. There is finally some bittering at the end, but it isn’t enough to balance. A big, noticeably alcoholic brew, but enjoyable in small amounts.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl.
Appearance - close to opaque black with a nice crema head.
Nose - initial dairy thing, then light cardboard note, then toffee follows it in.
Taste - initially slight oxidised cardboard again, then liquorice, nuts, praline generally.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a dry and fairly balanced finish.
Overall - this needs to be re-rated as the bottle was a little past its BBD.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Oily black body with a light-tan head that doesn’t last for long. Aroma of molasses, sweet brown sugar, faint coffee, creamy milk chocolate, toasty caramel. Flavor is sweet.. VERY sweet. Loads of sweet chocolate, milky lactose sweetness, brown sugar, caramel, toffee, even some hints of vanilla & toasted nuts. Loads of residual sugar coat your teeth instantly. Too much sweetness to drink a full glass. Not bad but goddamn.
