Tasting this transports me back to childhood, visiting my grandparents in Buffalo, tasting my grand-dad's Genesee Cream Ale. A fond memory but honestly, not very good beer.

Pretty, dark color. Fine tan head.
Bouquet of an American lager hints at disappointment to come.
Moderate mouthfeel, would expect more richness from the color.
Flavor has some bitterness, cocoa. Improves a bit in the glass.
But honestly: meh. With a name like 2x stout I expected something more Imperial.
Decent finish, reasonable intensity.

Delicious sweet burnt chocolate taste with a great coffee aftertaste. Great coffee-like smell.

Strong stout with substantial dark & lightly sweet flavors. Strong dessert.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, completely opaque, pitch-black color with an eighth of a finger of caramel-colored head that immediately dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Roasted malt, freshly baked dark bread, dark chocolate, coffee and caramel. Nice aromas.

Taste: Great! Strong roasty flavors of coffee, toasted pumpernickel bread and dark chocolate, followed by some vanilla and caramel-like sweetness. The beer finishes with just a touch of hoppy bitterness. Very, very good.

Mouthfeel: Slightly chewy and very creamy, as there is practically no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 7.5%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is another great milk/sweet stout, and another great beer from Southern Tier. Great flavors of roasted malt, coffee and caramel, all wrapped up in a creamy quaff. Delicious!

Nice smooth taste with just the slightest hint of milk. Well above average beer that I would purchase again.
