355 ml bottle from wegmans in Niagara Falls. Black, tan head. Nice and roasty, well hopped. Doesn’t drink like a sweet stout. I like this a lot but it isn’t what it says it is. citydave (69) - - MAY 13, 2013
Poured from 12oz bottle. Aroma of metals, coffee and chocolate maybe. Taste is strong with roasted malts. Chocolatey and ffruity aftertaste. berntholer (1617) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2013
mocha head that disappears quickly with lacing. coffee coloured. aroma of smoked malts, caramel toffee and liquorice. tastes sweet, lactose sweet (like milkstout), liquorice with a long liquorice aftertaste. medium body and carbonation. bottle 33 cl / dob 4/16/’12 lliams (204) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2013
pretty great daily drinking stout. the smell is complex- cola, cherry, pine.. taste straight up was real charry ash which gave way to a nice medium body with lots of choc. slightly oily palate which is nice. good stuff AaronDaniel (35) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Appearance: This brew pours black with a dark tan head. There is some decent lacing.
Smell: I get a lovely nose of sweet caramel, chocolate, roasted malt, cereal, and cream. Can’t WAIT to dig in!
Taste: My tongue is immediately enveloped in sweet roasted malts, espresso, milky cream, and bread. There is a faint note of alcohol present as well. This is a MAN’s beer! This stout finishes nicely leaving cream, espresso and sweetness on the palate. There is also very subtle hops that are tamed by the cream and roasted malts. This beer throws down heavy sweet malt goodness- just like I like- without being over-the-top-syruppy-gross!
Mouthfeel: This has a medium to heavy tongue weight with ample carbonation.
Overall: This is a phenomenal milk stout through and through. I’ve had this bottled and on tap, and find myself utterly pleased. It’s hard to find on tap. I only know one place: McLadden’s in West Hartford, CT. This brew is a real treat. And, with 7.5% ABV at the same price as many inferiors, it’s well worth the investment. Southern Tier has never disappointed me. They really know how to make dark, rich beers teeming with complexity.

Draft at Sybarite Pig on nitro. American pint glass. Dark brown, nearly black pour with thick light brown head. Perfect beer on nitro. Aroma strong with coffee, chocolate, smoke and vanilla. Taste of chocolate and coffee first with lingering nut, smoke and prunes. Slight bitter finish with vanilla. Mouth is very smooth and milk creaminess. BeerGolem (828) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2013

Beer tasting. The milk comes through nicely, balanced with hops, malt, and perhaps a small amount of raisins. COMRADEJOSH (320) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 wonderful taste of dark malt and chocolate. creamy taste on the palate. just enough hop to give it some bitterness. a well balanced stout worth trying Haslinger (929) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2013
growler fill from alto cinco, frothy dark chocolatey pour. tasty smell and initial taste. rich somewhat malty coffee/ chocolate taste. it tastes like a dark beer should. not super overwhelming in anyway. delicious
