In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from Southern Tier. It is their 2x Stout. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this east coast craft brewery. Let us get into this milk stout.
It has a jet black color without a head on it but there was a nice tan color head. The aroma has a rich chocolate notes with hints of a burned coffee. The taste has a smooth and creamy chocolate notes with a burned chocolate dry bitter finish. It is kind of drinkable beer.

In the end, I really enjoyed this stout. I am a pretty big fan of the milk stout over all the rest of the stouts in the stouts world. This is a great stout and it is perfect brew for dessert or just by itself. It will go great with a nice cigar on a fall night. There is some nice cream chocolate notes that makes you coming back for more. I love the burned chocolate dry bitter finish. It is kind of drinkable but it is a nice sipping brew. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
