Looks like a fresh pint of black coffee, near zero clarity, thin latte cap.
Smells of fresh cream, oily coffee beans, sweet honey, more coffee, really a pleasant aroma I think.
Taste - milk and oatmeal as promised, aftertaste like a dark roast with half and half, the oats take a back seat to the lingering latte flavors - mouthfeel could stand to get beefed up a bit.
Overall, this is a solid offering from a brewery that is really hit or miss for me, I’d recommend this to any stout fan

Bottle. Very dark body with light brown head. Smooth on the palate, roasted flavor with creamy milk aftertaste.

5/04/14 at Red Cow Minneapolis, on tap in pint glass. Aroma is of roasty, toasty malt, as it should be. As dark as midnight with a thick, lingering head. Intense flavor of deeply roasted malt. Malt Heads rejoice! This is a yummy stout! Please sir, may I have another?

Thanks to mnbearsfan for this 12 oz bottle via trade. Poured a thin black with a mocha/tan small one-finger head. Nose was some smoke/ash, chocolate, molasses and brown sugar. Taste was vanilla, oatmeal, chocolate and coffee as was expected, but also some fruit (cherries?). Body was smooth but thin with medium carbonation. Overall, a good offering in a style I like, but I have found others I like more.

12 oz bottle: Aroma is wonderful chocolatety, nutty, roasted notes, oatmeal, almost a milk like scent, and just the slightest bit of alcohol. Appearance is a deep dark black with a medium to thick tan head that lingers. Taste is like malty chocolate milk, but in a really really good way. This stuff goes down super easy and for a big malty brew is quite drinkable. Overall, Really nice I like this one a lot. Cheers!

Poured from 12 oz bottle. Pours black with about 2-3 fingers of creamy thick tan head. Aroma is toasted oats and some cocoa. Taste is some chocolate and toasted malts. Super smooth. Not terribly sweet, but still really good.

12oz bottle pours dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, lactose, molasses, and licorice. Taste of sweet chocolate, coffee, smooth lactose, toasted oats, finishing with slight anise and some bitterness. A solid sweet stout.

Pours dark, small medium tan head. Silky palate feel with caramel and chocolate overtones and a light bitter finish. Chocolaty malt aroma. A very nice everyday stout.
