4.23/5 rDev +11.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a dark brown color and a thick texture. There was a small amount of creamy, tan-colored head that quickly dissipated. Pretty good lacing.
S: An oddly muted aroma, but some hints of coffee and malt are apparent.
T: Tasted of coffee (more than you'd expect from a milk stout), malt, light hops, and a mild milk flavor. Much more robust and complex than most milk stouts, which is not a bad thing. Almost tasted more like a porter than anything else.
M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth, creamy finish. Medium-bodied.
O: I'm not the biggest fan of the milk stout style - they tend to be thin and uninteresting - but the 2X Stout is an excellent, enjoyable beer.

12oz bottle served in a pint glass
Pours a very dark brown that is a few shades lighter than black, fairly opaque it doesn't allow much light through but does throw some highlights on the edges. The head is about a finger thick, light tan bubbles that fall to a thin layer in some time. The smell is a touch of roasted malt combined with lactose sugary sweetness and dark caramels or light chocolates. The taste is similar to the smell as the lactose sweetness leads the way bolstered by the chocolate notes and finished with a touch of roasted malt bitterness. Hop aroma and flavor is nearly nonexistent, there may be just a touch of bitterness coming from hops with the bulk from the malt. Trends a bit towards the sweet side, especially up front while the body is incredibly creamy and smooth both due to the lactose and a high level of fine bubbled carbonation. Overall a good stout, I'm not the biggest fan of the style so personally I"m not thrilled by this beer but would say that it is well done and should be liked by fans of milk stouts.
