look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Bottle purchased as part of a mix-six pack at Wegmans.

Pours basically dark black, with a creamy looking 2 inch head, and some sticky lacing down the glass. Looks great.

Smells like lactose, vanilla, roasted malt, and chocolate.

The taste is similar. Very silky smooth from the lactose, as is the typical case with milk stouts. Very sweet, with lots of rich chocolate flavors, and a small amount of roasted malt flavor.

Incredibly creamy and smooth mouthfeel, medium carbonation keeps it lively. Medium bodied.

One of Southern Tier's best stouts, which is saying something, because they make some great stouts.

From a 12 oz bottle shipped commercially, poured in a Palm tulip glass. Date is a little scratched but looks like 11/20/12 (Nov, 2012).
Pours black with a big brown head that leaves lace and mellows quickly.
Aroma of brown sugar, fresh baked milk chocolate hazelnut cookies, bitter chocolate, sweet dark malts.
Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel.
Flavors of big hops vs. dark roasted malts. Rich and complex but there's some astringency that gives a bitter bite, cream of tartar of a touch of chalk, but not overwhelming.
15 Minutes into the brew offers a small lingering cosmic star designed head, slight lace, very light chocolate malt aroma, and rich flavors of dark roasted malts with bitter chocolate notes. Overall very full bodied and tasty.

Consumed 2/20/13

Appearance: Dark, dark brown - clarity around the edges - tiny, borderline nonexistent head - manages to leave some spots of lacing, though

Smell: Roasty sugar - caramel, sugar, and lactose sugar - roasty coffee (with cream) - dark chocolate and milk chocolate - typical Southern Tier level of sweetness, but it seems to work here - some lightly burnt, chocolate malts

Taste: Somewhat like a milky mocha - roasty coffee, with some light roasty bitterness - sweet, with caramel, sugar, and lactose sugar - somewhat creamy (the lactose) - some dark chocolate, but mostly milk chocolate - some dark fruit as well

Mouthfeel: Medium body, minimal carbonation, smooth, sweet finish

Overall: Very good, could use a better name

This is a good milk stout. Nothing about it screams "2X" in any way, but I guess I felt the same way about Southern Tier 2XIPA. It's sweet, which should be expected, and the 12oz format works for this reason. Worth a try.
