look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Bottled on 02/08/12.

Appearance: Pours a dark black with a little brownish red at the bottom. Lots of bubbles and a solid three fingers of creamy light tan head with good retention. Lots of lace on the glass.

Smell: Sweet dark roasted malts with big hints of chocolate and lactose. Also some hints of oatmeal, milk, coffee, and caramel. Light presence of earthy hops in the background along with a light hint of dark fruit. A pretty sweet and chocolate forward aroma.

Taste: Starts out with a big sweet taste of the roasted malts with a good amount of chocolate, oats, and lactose with a hint of coffee and milk. Midway comes a surprisingly strong presence of hops for a sweet stout. Hops are a mix of citrus and earthy hops. Pretty well balanced even though chocolate is the most noticeable taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Very creamy. Somewhat syrupy but very slick. Starts sweet and has a fairly drying finish.

Overall: A pretty solid stout. Nice hop presence for a milk/sweet stout.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

A- pours black with a three finger light brown head that fades quickly. Looks like a quality stout

S- mild aroma of milk chocolate and lactase

T- very sweet tasting, with the lactase dominating all flavors....getting hints of chocolate as well, but the sweetness is dominant. Not necessarily a bad thing, after all, it is a milk stout

M- medium bodied

O- about part for the course, but still very good. The ABV is hidden very well in this one, and you get a nice bang for your buck with it. Most milk stouts cost roughly the same about per sixer, and have much less alcohol

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Jet black, completely opaque, the head was stiff and bubbly.

Dry malty, crackery and slightly charred there's a certain weakness." 2X" should be more pronounced.

The taste is grassy and earthy. Charred malts with a dry Graham cracker crust, there's a hidden chocolatey taste but that natural charred grass wins out.

Overall I like it, very rough around the edge but smooth at the same time.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Jet black body holds a tan cover that leaves a bit of lacing. Opaque save a ruby edge when held to light.

Smell: Coffee, roasted and slightly soured grain.

Taste: Coffee really punches through a sweet malty base. Roasted coffee and grain blend to give a generally balanced, rich flavor. Earthy hop profile keeps it traditional in style.

Mouthfeel: Some odd blend of fizzy and creamy. The fizz was a bit annoying, but once it degassed for a bit, it got much better.

Overall: A nice sipper. I like Southern Tier, but they seem to go with a "flavored" beer. The added flavor here is the coffee, but a slightly sickly sweet vanilla something in the background. It's a good overall package, a slow sipper.

Thanks to Vic for bringing a sample up from San Antonio
