On cask at dba Brooklyn. Aroma is milky espresso, which wasn't expected and is damn pleasant. Yeah, the coffee here is just fantastic.
Taste doesn't hold the same depth, as the milky sweet stout dances with the oats at a middle-school arm length. Zero coffee on the palate. Silky body courtesy of the oatmeal.
Good, not great.

Great nose sweet lactose not over powering. Well balanced flavors feels nice on the pallet. Smooth and easy drinking. Nice warmth of the alcohol through out the beer. Would definitely revisit.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at Texas Arizona, 3/15/13
Aroma: The nose has sweet malts, roast, milk/lactose, and some chocolate notes as well
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a lasting small tan head and light lace
Flavor: This one is medium sweet, roasty and chocolaty, with minimal bitterness
Palate: This brew is medium bodied, it feels a bit creamy, and it has fairly lively carbonation
I would say that this one is more milk stout then oatmeal stout. Pretty good stuff. It doesn’t really standout, but it is a quality offering.

pours dark with a small tan head that fades quickly. coffee is the dominant scent and shows up again in the flavors. There’s a little chocolate and the snap of hoppiness at the finish. It’s thinner than many "big" stouts, but that makes it rather drinkable.

Pours a cola color with foamy tan head. Nice nose of roasted coffee. Very smooth, with some coffee and dark chocolate notes, some sweetness, and finished off with some toasted malt. Not as heavy as other stouts. Very good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
ROasted coffee, slight lactose sweetness. Well balanced. Flavors go really well together, however the body is fairly light and watery. Good but a little unsatisfying.
