4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Southern Tier has mastered dessert beers. Sweet cocoa aromas blended with espresso, toffee and hints of floral hops.
Flavor? Think dark chocolate espresso beans. Coffee bitterness balanced with sweet caramel and toffee. Hoppy undertones and some light grains round it out nicely.
The alcohol becomes strong as the beer warms, but the thick, creamy feel caries it well.

Pours dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma of rotated coffee beans, chocolate, maybe some vanilla. Taste is bold chocolate. Very sweet. A little hint of coffee but the chocolate takes over. A little too much for my taste, but still pretty good

old bottle from beer bill? aged for couple of years. DAMMMMM! this is very good stuff. unbelievable great aroma of chocolate, choc milk, and coffee. smoov palate. taste is balanced by hops and not cloyingly sweet. though chokolat was too much chocolate after a few sips - this is balanced greatly with coffee and hops - should have tried this sooner!

Backlog. Bottle @ Green Lion Inn 2011, aged for about 12 months in average conditions. Their dark beers always excite me, and this is truly fabulous.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle pours opaque rich brown black with very thin head. Nose is nutty marshmallow and tootsie roll. Taste is sweet creamy viscous tootsie roll, nutty cocoa and coffee, creamer. Finish is sweet marshmallow and milk chocolate. A little much, trying to finish a whole bottle would be tough, but fairly good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a thick black on tap with thin ring of tan head. Aroma is chocolate with a hint of roast. Taste is more on the coffee side, but nice chocolate back end. Decent, the booze is definitely well hidden, creamy sticky mouth.

From memory. Had this probably before my RB days. Was a big fan of the ST black water series. This was like a blend between the chocolate and java (coffee). My second favorite in the series behind java. Not sure why those were the two they diacontinued. Lots of sweetness, maybe even too much. chocolate and coffee.
