A: tiny tan head that quickly goes away but leaves a ring the whole time.Very dark brown, almost black. Not viscous looking.
S: roasted malts and sweet lactose right away. Some alcohol. Not a very huge boquet, but a nice one. Straight forward.Not seeing the 2X part of the smell.
T: Much more bitter than expected. Lots of smoke. Very alcoholic. burnt coffee. Touch of floral and piney hops. Much more interesting than the smell but the alcohol is so intense.
M: Thin for a milk stout but not too thin overall (it does have a body). well carbonated. Not smooth at all. Pretty rough actually. I guess I like my milk stouts to be less crisp and biting.
O: I had very high hopes for this one. I don't think it's a bad beer, but I was not a fan of the alcohol intensity and the roughness of the Mouthfeel. However, I will say that as I drink it, it is starting to grow on me.

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
