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: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

a. dark brown/ black on the pour. Careful, the head sneaks up on you. Starts near nothing, but blossoms to a full 3 finger height. Head is tan/brown in color and sits on top the beer for a while at roughly 1/3" Lacing is nice.

s. Smell of yeast dominates the after poor, giving way to malt.

t. Malt, not as sweet as I had hoped, but somewhere between outstanding and very, very good. Rounded up to a 4.

m. Excellent up front, but seems to be a grit in the finish.

O. Reminds me of a Sam Adams cream stout, which is a compliment. Not as creamy, but a solid stout. Do not be scared off by the 'sweet' title.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours black, just about opaque. The hops and grains unexpectedly dominate the smell, though the typical chocolate stout scent is found just beneath. The semi-sweet chocolate becomes the most obvious to taste, with a grainy, bitter hops lingering in the finish. It has a very light mouth feel, with an appropriate amount of carbonation. A decent stout, however there is nothing that makes it stand out in stand out in a crowd.
