Southern Tier Iniquity


Southern Tier calls Iniquity an Imperial Black Ale.  Whatever it is, it’s a big beer, at 9.0% ABV.   It’s got sweet, roasted notes on the nose, and reminds me of kind of a light version of a porter.  It relies pretty heavily on the roast for flavor, but it’s very nicely balanced with hops for a middle that only has hints of bittersweet chocolate and follows with a very dry finish.  This is a really unusual, interesting beer, and would be an outstanding choice late on a cold winter’s night.

I give it a 4.6 out of 5.
