Pours a nice black color, shows some brown on the edges when held up to the light.
Nice aromas of roasted malts and little hops on the end. Makes my mouth water!
Has that great chocolate milk taste with a nice bitter hoppiness on the end.
Super easy to drink and a really tasty beer!

Look. Fairly dark mahogany, tan medium head.
Smell. Balanced smell between sweet malts and crisp hops, some banana/vanilla, more than most beers for me.
Taste. Mostly toasty, hoppy, dry, not much malt taste, bit of vanilla.
Mouthfeel. Medium body, some sparkle, tangy, oily at the end, but good oil.
Overall. A bit too thin, toasty, hoppy. Out of balance to the hop dry side.

12oz bottle. No date. Served in a snifter 2/15/2015.

A- Dark black body, one finger offwhite head with good retention time, a bit of lacing. Looks darker than expected for a milk stout.

S- Mild cocoa, milk chocolate. Like a hot chocolate that's cooled down considerably. A bit of dark chocolate, lactose, espresso. Smells solid, but nothing too intense.

F- Silky smooth milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, lactose. Smooth and no off flavours. Lots of different "dark" flavours on the palate, solid but nothing that stands out. It's certainly sweet.

M- Medium body, sticky and slick. Leaves a milk licorice and milk chocolate finish on the palate. Not difficult to drink.

O- On the sweeter side, but it has all the "dark malt" flavours that you could want. A bit bitter as well. Not the greatest, but you could do a lot worse.

Great. Feel and taste. Consistently excellent not crazy alcohol, so can enjoy a few. Readily available in Pittsburgh area.

Tasting this transports me back to childhood, visiting my grandparents in Buffalo, tasting my grand-dad's Genesee Cream Ale. A fond memory but honestly, not very good beer.

Pretty, dark color. Fine tan head.
Bouquet of an American lager hints at disappointment to come.
Moderate mouthfeel, would expect more richness from the color.
Flavor has some bitterness, cocoa. Improves a bit in the glass.
But honestly: meh. With a name like 2x stout I expected something more Imperial.
Decent finish, reasonable intensity.

Delicious sweet burnt chocolate taste with a great coffee aftertaste. Great coffee-like smell.
