Draft (backlog) from downtown location. Poured a deep brown, near black with no head and some off-white lacing. Notes of mild chocolate and sweet lactose. Medium mouthfeel. One of the better drafts I had from them.

Sampled during CBC 2013. Dark pour with a small khaki head. Ashy roasted malt aroma, char, deep coffee. Smooth flavor, rich milk chocolate, char, ash, roasted malts, coffee, a touch of cream and acidity. Tasty enough.

Tap at Downtown. Dark brown, almost black, brown fluffy head that fades quickly but what remains laces well. Nose is burnt malts, and milk chocolate. Mouth is chocolate, lactic, coffee, leaving a burnt and over-hopped ending that leaves an unpleasant bitterness. Good, bad ending.

This place is a hop house. I had a small sample of one of their ales before ordering the Oatmeal. The ale twisted my tongue with overwhelming hops. I ordered the Stout expecting a smooth, sweet libation. Yeah, it had a good malt flavor, more burnt than charred. Again the hops dominated, leaving a bitter, burnt aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft Shirlington. Extremely smoky and charred chocolate malts in the nose, full of oak wood - dry and parched on the tongue. Very good stuff, it’s an intense experience, and it takes a lot for a stout to surprise me these days, but it was refreshing to try this beer. The best milk stout I’ve had, the lactic notes are light in the finish to begin with but as it reaches room temperature they become more pronounced, and mix really well with the concentrated smoke and charred grains in there as well. I want more.

This beer is really a take of Cap City’s Blackout Stout which is their oatmeal stout. But what makes Oatmilk even more special, is that addition of lactose. The milk sugar gives this beer more sweetness, and even more creamy aromas and flavors.
Oatmilk Stout pours to a beautiful, deep ebony color with a thick and creamy white head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose on this beer is wonderful, with lots of dark chocolate and sweet malty aromas paired with mild touches of roast, and sweet cream. The palate is silky smooth and creamy from the use of oats, with lots of chocolate, dark malt, mild roasted coffee and sweet cream flavors, the just glide over the tongue. Oatmilk Stout finishes with more chocolate, light roast, and sweet creamy flavors that linger.
This is such a delicious and enjoyable beer, just perfect to sip and relax with at the bar, or one to pair with a rich desert.

They claim it’s got a roasty aroma, and they’re telling the truth. The color is dark brown bordering on black with a beige head. The flavor is roasted coffee with cream. The palate is nice and smooth, but a little bit more carbonated than I would have expected. A good effort by Cap City.
