Black with a small tan head. Good retention. Some streaky lacing.
Not much aroma. Bread, some brown sugar, generic sweet. Vague apple-like fruit notes?
Very mild flavor upfront. White bread, half-and-half, dark chocolate, milk chocolate. Midway it transitions to a pleasant bit of soy sauce and molasses, with more dark chocolate and vanilla. Smooth, but subdued throughout. A clean finish for a stout.
The feel is creamy, medium, decent carbonation. Slick and oily upfront, but clean on the finish.
It's okay. I guess I'm just not a fan of Southern Tier's sweet beers.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L---While pouring in direct sunlight, it was reddish brown and clear. In the glass, it's opaque brown. Minimal head that sat there as a ring. Lacing was ok at first, then became minimal.

S---Burnt malts. A little bit a chocolate and maybe cola.

T---Dark chocolate. A little bitter. Complex maltiness.

F---Just about right for a stout. Creamy. Thick, but not too heavy. Not much carbonation.

O---A pretty good stout. I don't know what makes it a "double milk stout", though. I'd get this one again.

The `milkiness` is, at best, minimally present - belying the label. This beer has no perceptible finish. The look and smell of this beer is appropriate for a stout and lifts the feel to a 3 rating. Overall my expectations exceeded this stout's performance.

The body is jet black topped with small light tan head that quickly fades to just a wispy thin layer of foam. Dark roasted malts dominate the nose and the flavor is loaded with dark sweet malt goodness. The feel is full and slick with light carbonation.

Very dark body but dissipates to no head at all very quickly. The nose is sweet chocolate and coffee malt.

Flavor is big and rich and dominated by coffee up top and tempered with hops along the way. Agreeable aftertaste and relatively smooth in texture. Body is maybe a touch thin but this is a solid, balanced stout that doesn't taste like 7.5%.

Inky black on the pour, with a fade to mahogany brown on the edges, and a soapy tan head. Lovely. Rich milk chocolate on the nose - and maybe some vanilla?

Definitely some vanilla on the taste. There’s also a healthy chocolate component. I just wish the mouthfeel was a bit fuller. Still a very enjoyable milk stout.

Ho-hum milk stout that just doesn't taste "finished". Didn't really care for it and wouldn't drink again.

Good the BOTTLE ON DATE is on here so I know it's not past it's prime. The maltiness is rich & the texture is filling in this one. What more can I say this is another excellent tasting Southern Tier product. Cheers! B
