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.

12oz bottle into a snifter appears dark brown in color with a quick fading khaki cap that leaves spotty lace.

Aroma of roasted grain earthy char and cola to rootbeer aspect.

The taste is a little dusty and like cola or rootbeer. Some roast and char with lingering bitterness akin to bakers chocolate.

Medium in body with modest carbonation. Its ok, just tastes a little dated.

Pours a thick mohagany with a skiff of fizzy tan head. Meh retention; some rings of lacing. The aroma and flavor are both a little bitter and a little boozy with chocolate and toffee. The flavor is a bit harsh but it mellows and the booze/roast astringency becomes a little less prominent as it warms. Pretty decent beer. It was a little sharp for me, it has that thin, woody, boozy/roast astringency that I sometimes get from BA stouts that go overboard on the bourbon. It is a good beer, but I would like something a little smoother and richer.
