A: opaque deep mahogany. typically beige, thin but yeasty head that hung around a bit.
very little lacing.

S: smelled fiercely of wood smoke and earth. there was also a hard (for me) to identify sweetness
that was similar to black sugar or burnt toffee.

T: i can clearly taste malt in this stout. it comes on in the beginning but dissipates quickly,
earthy, almost mushroom type of flavor. does that mean that the malt is toasted/burned? the
hoppy finish is powerful and gives way to a dry, dark roast coffee taste.

M: a bit too carbonated at first for my taste. it was very cold upon my first swallow left a fizz that
was akin to an ale. 2X Stout is supposed to be a milk stout: where was the silky mouthfeel? as
it warmed, the carbonation seemed to mellow and it became more of what i expected.

--i really couldn't identify any chocolate at all in this beer. since i don't think chocolate is required flavor in milk stout, i have to believe the brewer left it out on purpose. this is a serious stout, with a decent ApV. I would get it again.

Black with a thin off-white head.

Very slightly milky nose.

Chocolate hardly comes through and the hops are too prevalent. Narwhal gets by with meaner hops because it's rich, this is far from. Even when the lactose kicks in it's still a tame bore of a stout.

Too carbonated for the style. Stain is mild.

Its your typical style beer as far as looks and smells go

Very dark could not see a lightt with the flash light used

Nothing special. drinkable style with a slight aftertaste

Nothing overwhelming

Average stout

Something I could drink but not buy again over and over
