Poured into a tulip pint.

L- Pours chocolate-brown with almost no head. Not unattractive, but does look "thin" for a stout.

S- Really picking up a cocoa vibe in the aroma department.

T- not finding much of that cocoa I smelled, there are coffee notes. No 'milkiness' at all. Too much hop action for the low level of malt.

F- Way too thin for a milk stout.

Not a bad beer, but not a great one. I certainly wouldn't turn it down if I were offered one, but I don't see me paying for another one either.

Dark chocolate brown cow appearance and light mocha head. Not that sweet in presentation, but has some nagging cloying properties. The lactose is definitely there, but the roast coffee flavors predominate, and it finishes with a nice char. Very bready-dark german pumpernickle and barley. Flavors are spot on, a little weak in the nose but the too thin, too sticky mouthfeel hurts.

Pours a deep dark molasses with ruddy highlights and a coffee colored head.

Smells of coffee, plum, roasted barely and floral and bitter herb notes.

Bitter coffee and chocolate up front. It has a smooth creamy middle with roasted malt notes. Smooth to the finish with slight bitter herb and floral notes.

Southern Tier 2X Stout has a medium, cream-colored head, a dark brown, almost black, appearance, and just a little bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is a wonderful mix of milk/cream, dark-roasted malt, and sweet bread crust. Taste is the same, with low bitterness, but high acidity. Mouthfeel is heavy and slick, and Southern Tier 2X Stout finishes wet and sip-able.
