From a bottle into a snifter
Date of Birth: 6 March 2012
Double Milk Stout
APPEARANCE: Pours out clear brown and makes only a miniscule light tan head that turns into a faint wisp and ring rather fast. Clear black body and no carbonation evident. A ring and light wisp remain until the end and lots of dots of lacing stick to the sides of the glass.
SMELL: Roasted malts, espresso and roasted coffee beans, and lots of vanilla sweet cream on the nose. Caramel notes and some lactose sugar for sure. Decent, but a little sweet cream heavy.
TASTE: Roasted malts, caramel sweetness, and some espresso coffee flavors up front, with flavors of sweet vanilla cream at the swallow. Medium but lingering aftertaste of espresso, lactose sweetness, vanilla, and bitter, roasted coffee beans. Flavorful and nice.
PALATE: Slightly fuller body and medium levels of carbonation. Enough weight on this one. Creamy on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes quite mouth-coating. Coats the roof of your mouth. Pretty big and creamy feel on this one.
OVERALL: A solid beer, but I wouldn't consider this anything special, especially after trying Southern Tier's imperial stout lineup. Good beer with some nice flavor, but I'd reach for their bigger stouts ten times out of ten.
