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.
Eight months old before I bought it. Planning? Or slow beer management?
Hasn’t affected it’s quality much. Rich dark and full as you wish. Probably the first of Southern Tier’s products to bring me this much satisfaction. Yum.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2017 Stouts are my favorite. This was good, but it wasn't as strong as I would like. It has a pleasant chocolate taste with very little bitterness. tapefuzz (826) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 20, 2017

12 ounce bottle. Opaque black liquid topped by a large dense tan head. Subtle roasted malt nose hints at chocolate and dark coffee. Sweet roasted malt flavor has notes of bittersweet chocolate and robust espresso. An underlying bitterness throughout arises in finish with some resiny hops. Dry malt aftertaste. Reminiscent of Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, only sweeter. skunky,
