COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oatmeal, Milk Sugar, Cacao Nibs, Espresso. Yup, it has ALL that!

Collaborating with other like minded businesses will be an important part of this brewery. For this beer we team up with locally based Mostra Coffee Roasters. After brewing this oatmeal milk stout with Guana Cacao Nibs from San Francisco’s TCHO Chocolatier we cold steep Mostra’s Fortissimo Espresso with the beer for 24 hours before packaging. At 5.1% ABV this beer is defies the perception that dark beers are only big, bold, and too alcoholic to enjoy.

BuckeyeBoy (9219) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 26, 2018
On tap at the brewery pours black topped with a tan head. Nose is big sweet milk chocolate some vanilla coffee ash. Taste is more of the nice sweet malts milk chocolate coffee.

thegreenrooster (4666) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 25, 2017
Pour is a black with a large tan head. Aroma is plenty of coffee and some roasted nuts. Flavor is more of a creamy sweetness with some chocolate and a bit of coffee. For intense as the coffee is in the aroma it loses a bit in the flavor. This is still a nice sweet and malty stout with just enough bitter bakes chocolate to rescue it.

marcus (10976) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 2, 2017
On tap at Cap Tap. Pours Black with a thick tan head and a chocolate and coffee aroma. There is a medium-bodied chocolate flavor with a tasty coffee finish.

3.6
bhensonb (16132) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 26, 2017
Nitro at Cap Tap. Pours dark brn/blk with a creamy dark tan head. Aroma is mild coffee over some toasted/burnt malt. Med minus body. Flavor matches aroma, but they aren’t super strong. Nice, but not really exciting. Decent stuff.

3.8
joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 2, 2017
On tap at the Trappist. It pours black with a light brown head. The aroma has chocolate and coffee with a strong bready backbone. The flavor is coffee forward with nice notes of chocolate and bread. Very drinkable and well balanced flavor profile. The body is very silky, with the milk sugar coming through more in the mouthfeel than sweetness. Full bodied, but not heavy. Really nice.

3.8
djd07 (16461) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2017
On tap at Mostra Anniversary. Pours black with medium tan head that lasts. The aroma is cocoa, roast, cracker. Thin body, milk chocolate, light roast, brownie, dry finish, very good.

3.1
Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 24, 2016
Pours a deep black color with a brown foamy head that laces the glass well. Aroma is mocha upfront with hints of coco. Taste is similar, with a roasted nut flavor and so.e licorice in the aftertaste. Not as sweet for my taste considering the style, but nice.

3.4
Stampion (292) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Half pour at brewery. Dark with a light brown head. Espresso forward with chocolate that follows at the end. Not as creamy as I wanted. Good but not great.

3.6
brokensail (16696) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 1, 2016
On tap @ Caps & Taps. Black in color with a finger of tan foam. It is pretty coffee forward, but is a little bit on the earthy coffee grounds side which I don’t necessarily love. A lot of roast, toasted walnut, some ash, and licorice. Definitely a strong bitterness here, too. There is fairly mild sweetness of toasted nuts and toffee.
