Pours and inky black with some head and decent retention. Nose is mostly chocolate and sweet dark roast. Taste follows with chocolate and sweet dark roast. Mouthfeel is great, really smooth. Overall a fine beer. I haven't had much experience with milk stouts, but I thought it was very nice.

Poured from a 650 ml bottle. Pours a dark chocolate colour. Huge notes of chocolate on the nose. Tastes of dark fruits, smoke and bitter chocolate. Ample sweetness, but dry on the finish thanks to a strong dose of hops. Full-bodied for sipping and savouring.

This was my first milk stout and I am impressed. It pours black with a small head and smells of malts and a hint of coffee and chocolate. The taste starts out good but gets even better as you drink it. Overall I am happy with this choice as my first milk stout and yet another great beer from southern tier.

The Southern Tier 2X Stout is good...the beer poured an opaque black with a thin ecru head that is not lacing much. The scent carries some chocolate and a bit of earth. The taste is a nice easy drinking stout with smooth chocolate base with touches of coffee and earth helping out. The mouthfeel is medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this is a decent stout and should be enjoyed by all.

2X Stout pours a black color with a small head. There is a sweet and lactose enriched aroma. The taste has strong lactose flavor, with a bitter and sweet aftertaste. There are strong but still watery taste. Overall its a nice bold flavored sweet stout.
