Had this at a tasting. This is the final nail for me with Southern Tier. Not impressed with ANYTHING they do. Very overrated brewery in my opinion.

The one we had got some age but was still immense with strong chocolate aromas. Pours pitch black with a nice dark brown head. The aroma is dominated by dark chocolate and vanilla.

a solid chocolate stout, albeit a bit too much of the dried cocoa flavor, which effected the aftertaste.

Draft. Pours deep black with brown edges and a thin mocha ring of foam that leaves some spotty lace. Nose involves and instant blast of chocolate brownies. Nicely sweet, somewhat bitter. Thick bodied, smooth, rich, dessert-like, warm with alcohol, finishing toasty. Very tasty brew, rich but not overpowering.

Opaque, dense lacing.
Full body, packed with flavor, smooth texture, good length.
Intense bittersweet taste, alcohol heat,
Mocha character, excellent expresso flavor, taste of alcohol in evidence, particularly in the finish.
A beer to always come back to.

Southern Tier continues to underwhelm me. Was looking forward to getting my hands on this one. It wasnt bad but really nothing to brag about. Would much rather have a Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2014 On tap at Easy Tiger in Austin, TX. Pours a opaque black with decent khaki head. Aroma is booze, vanilla and chocolate. Strong aroma. Taste is very chocolatey, slightly bitter with espresso notes. Thick on the palate. Unique, fantastic beer.
