Opinions on this one stout lovers? I just picked one up after it was recommended to me. Anyone who doesn't like stouts, be warned, this is not a brew for you.
One of, if not the thickest, beers I have ever had. Described as dark as a moonless night- an apt simile. Barely detectable chocolate which I really like as I am not a fan of chocolate flavors in beer. At 11% abv this beer is not kid's stuff. A little spicy kick at the end. This beer is like a jar of molasses, but the complex, robust spiciness of the wilamette and columbus hops imparted by the wizards at Southern Tier cleanly balance out the sticky sweet gooeyness of this brew.
Not for the faint of heart. For the man who loves and can handle a tough stout, this one is a must try. Makes Guinness look like a pink cosmo.
