Finally caught up! Tonight’s April Dirty Thirty beer is…
Southern Tier 2x Stout
- 7.5% ABV
- Double Milk Stout
Poured from bottle into mug. Opaque, dark brown color with light brown head.
It has a chocolate malt aroma and also gives off some burn from the alcohol.
Rich chocolate, like drinking chocolate milk. It has a heavy, creamy texture that’s punctuated with a bite of the alcohol.
– FOOD PAIRING
This beer screams dessert. Chocolate cake anyone?
– OVERALL THOUGHTS
I grabbed this beer off the shelf because I loved Southern Tier’s Creme Brûlée Stout. This one wasn’t a flop but doesn’t compare to it. It’s a hair too thick for me. The flavor is pretty spot on and the 7.5% ABV makes this a decent nightcap.
