3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this one multiple times and noticed some changes over the years. This review is based on the 2016 version. Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with an average sized tan head that quickly dissipates and leave behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of chocolate and light Hawaiian BBQ sauce with some floral hops and a touch of cream. Taste is where the oatmeal and lactose is better detected with flavors of chocolate, lactose and floral hops. Finish is semi-sweet with a short chocolate and vanilla after taste.

Delicious and creamy. Rich malt and incredibly smooth and decadent. I think the word is unctuous to really capture what is going on here. Lots of coffee, too.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2016 Initially tastes sour and like an ash tray. Then realized it was supposed to be esspresso and roasty. Guess I learned what that tastes like. Its alright. Definitly takes some getting used to if you havent had this type before. Watery as well. Dumped it
.. maybe I got a bad one

Bottle into glass. Pours black with a moderate somewhat foamy tan head. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt along with a bit of chocolate. The flavor is roasted malt with chocolate malt followed by some ash. A bit dry and ashy at the finish with a little sweetness. Not as creamy as I would expect in an oatmeal milk stout.

Nitro on tap at the brewery (Marshall, MN). Poured black, with a nice silky brown head and nice lacing all over the glass; thick. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Taste is coffee and caramel, some hops towards the end. Great beer; enjoyable and very drinkable.
