Souther Tier 2X Stout is thick and dark looking, with a slim brown head. The head retention is pretty good, but there isn't really any lacing left behind.

The aroma has a sweet, creamy scent to it, as well as black malt and anise.

The flavor has a lot of black patent malt and a touch of roast. Baker's chocolate comes through as well. The creamy-milk-like flavor is pronounced and it's probably the defining characteristic of the the beer. There is also a good dose of anise, which I typically don't love, but I will admit it works in this one. Pretty boozy.

Full, adequately carbonated, but pretty hot.

2X sout is an OK milk stout, but it's too big and too hot for me, especially considering the actual ABV isn't huge. I tend to think of milk stouts as being smooth and light on the alcohol flavors, which I like. I'm guessing that just isn't what Southern Tier was going for here, and it reminds of one of their big flavored stouts without a ton of sweetness. It's worth a try if you're interested in a big milk stout (which Southern Tier does a lot of, and does them pretty well).

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Served on nitro tap at Farmhouse in Burlington.
Serves up soooo nice looking, jet black body with half a finger of thick creamy khaki head.
Not a high volume of aromas, but it was rich and roasty, good sweetness.
Taste was delicious touch on the thin side.
Mouthfeel was silky, velvety a touch thin.
Overall, a lot to like with this beer.

Serving type: nitro-tap
