3xB: Southern Tier Choklat Stout
This Week’s Big Bottle: Southern Tier Choklat
The Southern Tier Imperial Chokolat Stout would probably do better with a cartoon rabbit review, because it actually belongs in a chocolate milk commercial. It’s on par with Heavy Seas Siren Noire for simply brilliant Chocolate stouts.
It pours a very, very dark black. I even held a flashlight directly up to the glass and still couldn’t see through it. There’s a great mixture of chocolate and milk on the nose. The taste is a great alignment with everything else. It’s incredibly smooth, with no bitterness or taste of malts. Just sweet, smooth chocolate milk; plus alcohol. It does linger on the tongue just a touch though, with a nice mild evaporation. No lingering tastes of alcohol or thick syrups, just a solid, delicious beer.
