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.

Pours a brown so dark as to appear black. So dark I cannot tell much about its clarity with the light I have available. The pour produces 4 fingers of frothy, deep mocha, somewhat lasting head that leaves a thick island mound surface cap, a very thin collar & profuse Jack Frost webs of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass 3+ fingers above the surface. Aroma is Tootsie Roll chocolate, lightly creamed coffee, roast, pumpernickel, toffee & a faint alcohol booze. Taste is sweet, dark chocolate, earthy, creamed coffee, burnt bread, a hint of spice, dark fruit & alcohol booze. Hop presence is best defined as an earthy bitterness in the finish & aftertaste. Aftertaste is earthy, bitter, burnt malt & chocolateel is medium-heavy bodied, with moderate carbonation, silky, tongue coating, smooth in a deceptive sort of way due to the peppery spice & grainy on the tongue in the finish & aftertaste. Sweet, but not nearly so sweet as some milk Stouts but enough so that it should be placed in the dessert beer category.

Southern Tier Brewing Co. "2X Stout"
12 fl. oz. brown glass bottle, "DOB 07/25/17" and sampled on 10/14/17
$1.99 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: Double milk stout? OK, sounds good. Typical stout appearance with a brown-black body beneath a frothy head of tan. Excellent head retention and very good lacing. There's some chocolate in the aroma but not much else. It's sweetish. In the flavor that chocolate returns, and it's kind of like cocoa and sugar but there's also some roastiness and acidity that cuts through it. It's a little harsh within what seems like too much sweetness, and then it finishes dry with a rising bitterness and residual dark malt acidity. There's a bit of yeasty fruitiness as well. It's essentially balanced between sweet and bitter but it's not really that well polished with the acidity and the sweetness both standing out more than the other components. Medium bodied and gently crisp with a slightly restrained carbonation level. Overall it's fairly average and a little bumpy whereas a milk stout should be quite smooth and almost one flavored.
