L - Pours into a chalice with a massive 2 inch, creamy-tan head, body is as dark as coffee.

S - Licorice, chocolate, roasted malts.

T - Rich roasted malt, espresso, chocolate, and a hop tang in the finish...bitter chocolate, in a semi-sweet, dark chocolate baking morsel kind-of-way, hint of malted milk-shake later on.

F - Some stickiness, medium effervescence, medium-heavy texture.

O - Creamy roasted malty-hoppy actually. This is not an overly thick, heavy stout. This is med-heavy textured stout with a sweet roast/bitter chocolate/hop tang character. Enjoyable. Nice to have as a pinch-hitter if you run out of your "top shelf" stout.

Pours a deep black with brown and red highlights around the edges, and a minimal mocha color head. Aroma is light roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and sweetness fron the milk sugar. Taste follows with milk chocolate, dark chocolate, light roast malt and coffee, and a nice and not overpowering sweetness from the lactose. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, but could be a bit bulkier, especially for a double stout. Overall, this is a very good iteration on the milk/sweet stout style, with nice flavors, a little more kick than regular versions, and quite drinkable.

Nice dark color with no head. Nose very sweet, almost chocolatey with hints of coffee. Taste very creamy but that masks the other flavors. Subtle hints of milk chocolate and a little roasted malt. Finish very sweet. Almost like a coffee milkshake. This beer was disappointing. It's ok but too sweet and the flavors didn't pop like most stouts do. Would try again just in case I got an older bottle but very underwhelming.

I love stouts. This one just is good, but not great. I've bought this a number of times and am always disappointed (I hope to remember this time) There is something about the use of hops that just doesn't mesh with the rest of the beer. I dislike the texture, it's like this beer is creamy but rough at the same time. Also is a tad too sweet for my tastes. But I'd drink again if there were very few other choices.

Delicious and smooth. First sip is reminiscent of a cup of coffee, and almost tastes as such. Roasty bitterness, but smooth with a hint of sweetness. Tasty, tasty, tasty,,,,,

Southern Tier 2x Double Milk Stout, ABV 7.5%, IBU 40. Decent tan head, not much nose. Taste is milk, very slight bitterness. I like this one and will get it again.
