Nice smooth taste with just the slightest hint of milk. Well above average beer that I would purchase again.

The best thing about Southern Tier's 2X stout may be how it looks when first poured out of the bottle. It's nearly pitch black with a small, but surprisingly long lasting, tan head. The aroma, which is largely of coffee with some hints of sweetness, won't take you by surprise, but is fairly pleasant. However, this beer fell short for me when it came to taste. Much like the smell, every sip tasted almost completely of coffee, and while there were some hints of chocolate and lactose both were fairly minor in comparison. That being said, the beer felt fairly good in the mouth, with appropriate thickness and mild carbonation, which was a pleasant touch.

This beer is by no means bad, but the dominant coffee flavor drowns out some of the enjoyable complexities found in many other milk stouts. If you're a big fan of coffee flavoring in your stouts, this may well be the brew for you, but others may want to look elsewhere.

Aroma-Boozy jusy plain. Lighy head that disappears in minutes. Heavy and lacking flavor. Creamy and just overall a boozy plain beer. Not a fan

This was far too sweet for me, but pretty typical of the style. Not a big fan of Milk Stouts. This one was had too thin of a mouthfeel and the aroma was almost non existent.

12 oz bottle - stout glass
A - black, healthy tan head that eventually dissipates, decent lacing while it lasted, but eventuallly disappeared
S - roast coffee, very distant hints of malt, red wine and alcohol
T - a good mix of coffee and dark fruit, I wasn't too keen on the amount of bitterness, but it didn't ruin the beer
F - Very good, moderately thick with a slippery feel, smooth
O - I would drink this again. The smells and the flavors weren't overpowering and there didn't seem to be anything dominant, only primary (roast coffee). I didn't care for the mild bitter finish, but it wasn't a deal breaker
