A: Motor oil black with no head. No light shines through when held up to a light. swirling the beer in a tulip glass results in a small amount of cocoa colored lacing.

S: Milk chocolate with some burnt, roastyness. solvent-like alcohol notes in the background. sweetness too.

T: Chocoolate Milk in beer form is my first impression. The lactose adds a vanilla like sweetness to the dark chocolate/roasted malts that makes the whole thing meld beautifully. As it warms up, the flavors get more complex and the bitterness is more apparent yet still a bootnote.

M: Slick and oily with a big chewy body. a chalkyness lingers after a few sips. low carbination

O: In a word full of great stouts 2X falls somewhere in the middle.

Pours pitch black with a thin tan head that doesn't stay around very long before becoming a wispy patch. Some dotted lacing sticks.

The smell is of chocolate syrup, chocolate cake, lactose (giving a sour touch) and some alcohol.

The taste is very much of chocolate. The sweet, dark chocolate is balanced by sour lactose and mild roast. The alcohol is quite apparent - almost harsh. It has a fairly long finish.

It is pretty silky - full-bodied but not thick. The moderate carbonation fits it well enough.

This is a nice, chocolatey, with sour notes, "sipper".

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. DOB 04/16/12

A- Pours a totally opaque black color with a 1/4 inch tan head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a thin, spaced-out layer of surface foam. Jagged ring of resilient lacing.

S- Dark chocolate, vanilla and roasted malt. Some brief caramel and vanilla sweetness. Hardly any alcohol fume.

T- Semi-roasty with a balanced bitterness and creaminess. Alcohol is very well masked. Notes of cocoa, light char and light vanilla. Sweetness comes through more as it warms.

M- Slightly creamy with medium carbonation and a hearty body.

O- Not as good as I was hoping, but an easy-drinking, well-constructed stout nonetheless.
