This beer pours with a one-finger head that dissipated fairly quickly. The color is a virtually opaque brown. The aroma was not outstanding: some toasty notes but not as marked as expected. The taste did not disappoint in delivering a rich, toasty chocolate deepness. This beer has a strong malty sweet character with an underplayed hoppiness that accentuates toward the end. The characteristics of the sweetness and hopiness are characteristic of this style. But the sweetness may be overplayed. The carbonation was at a medium level, and the body was full -- almost syrupy. Overall, I would have this beer again, even though I prefer a somewhat less sweet version of this style.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. DOB 1/16/13

A: Pours a very dark brown with a 1 finger khaki head. Light gets through about a half inch of this brew. Not much lacing.

S: Roasted malts with a definitive lactic kick. Carmel gives it a touch of sweetness. Some dark fruits in there as well.

T: Pretty balanced flavor going on here. Starts out with some nice roasted malts, some coffee kicks in and lactose sugars sweeten the backend. A touch of hops is pleasant. Booze is pretty well hidden. Roasted malts dominate.

M: Creamy mouthfeel with mild carbonation. A nice clean finish, isn't too sticky or heavy. An easy drinking brew.

Overall one of my favorite milk stouts out there. A pleasurable beverage to sip on for a night. Would recommend giving it a shot.

2X Stout pours out black with a finger of mocha head. The aroma is sweet and roasty, with lactose cutting a current straight through the roast. The taste brings in a strong amount of coffee flavor that works very well with the milk stout aspects. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, with just a little bit of carbonation prickle on the finish; and the drinkability is exceptional. Overall, Southern Tier 2X Stout is a great milk stout. The stronger coffee flavors helps it stand out from the pack.

12 oz.

Pours jet black with an inch of tan head, fine and pillowy, with a slow retention.

Smells of cocoa, brown sugar and roasted coffee beans.

Flavors are of nuts, milk chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, and mild oak-like hop bitterness.

Full creamy body with light tingling carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A very good stout, hits all the right notes, doesn't do anything exceptionally different, but does what it does very well. Would definitely have it again.
