Southern Tier Un*earthly

Southern Tier Un earthly

Very sweet aroma.  Initial taste is a bit hoppy, but not too strong.  Has a slight bite that gives you a hint of the high ABV, but is quickly followed by the sweetness and finishes with a mix of sweetness and hops.  May leave some with too much sweetness, but for me is quite nice.  I found this in oaked form and that was amazing.

5 out of 5 Stars.

Nice strong hop, grainy aroma.  Very good strong hop taste that hits the taste buds hard but quickly vanishes-like a hit and run driver.  Slight aftertaste leaves you wanting another drink, and then your taste buds respond accordingly setting free the appropriate level of mouth-watering effect.

4.5 out of 5 Stars.

Kind of yucky aroma like body odor, taste starts a bit harsh, but is immediately followed by a nice malt taste.  Amazing after all that up front that there’s very little aftertaste.  In the end, I’m not sure what to think.  After a few more tastes, the malty aftertaste starts to be pretty nice.
