Southern Tier Choklat

IMG_4475

I’ve had this review sitting around for quite awhile, actually I just found it. You can’t get this beer right now, as it’s a winter seasonal. This beer features 2-row, caramel, chocolate malt with barley flakes, bittersweet Belgian chocolate, and Chinook and Willamette hops.

Stats:
Imperial Stout. 9.5% ABV. New York. Winter Seasonal.

Black with dark brown hues, not a lot of head.

One of the most unusual noses I’ve ever encountered. Certainly chocolate, boozy, and really sweet smelling. It also smells pretty fruity, but very candy-esk. I’m imagining those hard candies shaped like bananas. Caramel also makes an appearance.

Full bodied mouthfeel, it’s fantastic.

Chocolate, caramel, apples, candied bananas, more chocolate, and cherries. Kind of a weird mid-palate and really sweet. The finish is some chocolate, but really roasted. Slightly disjointed, but no bitterness.

Very strange beer. I’m kinda perplexed by it. It’s not my kind of beer that is for sure. Let’s go 87 points.
