a nice combination of a milk and an oatmeal stout. it has an interesting dry aftertaste, which is very appealing. BeerKurve (520) - - JAN 11, 2014
Pitch Black with a Khaki-Colored head and good lacing. Aroma of oatmeal, chocolate, floral hops, roasted barley and yeast. Very Oatmeal and chocolate forward with a hint of caramel and hops. Heavy body and mild-to-moderate carbonation; Creamy texture. Good Oatmeal Stout! BeerBeforeH20 (129) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Nice roasted malt and chocolate aroma, smooth and well balanced tatse with a lovely lactose finish. Really good stout. FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 3, 2011
A - Pitch black with a small, foamy, bubbly, thinish, cafe colored head. Disappears pretty fast leaving a slightly patchy, thin lace.
S - Interesting aroma. Starts with a slightly smokey, roasted malt. This gives way to a chocolate and espresso aroma with a slight sweetness. A faint vinous tart/astringent aroma.
T - Starts with the faint charred, smokey flavor. This quickly fades to a milk and dark chocolate along with a hint of roasted coffee. Hints of sweet lactose/creamy taste starts here with a nice undertone. Finishes with a slight tart and earthy flavor.
M - Medium body and good carbonation. Very silky smooth. Really nice body.
D - Easy to drink with interesting mix of flavors. Taste like a milk stout along with a smokey and slightly tart flavor. I could regularly drink this.
Notes: Interesting milk stout. Nice flavors with an interesting smokey kick. Great body and nice flavor. Not amazing, but very nice. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2011
Thanks to Bob for the bottle! Poured clear, deeper ambery-brown with a sticky cap of dark tan head.. looked very good in the glass. The aroma picked up sweet, milky chocolates and buttery notes with a hint of molasses-crusted biscuity notes beneath.. sweet, smooth, and very desserty impression.. I very much enjoyed it. The flavor found buttermiky-y chocolates, smooth rolled oats, and vanilla at the core, with light earthy and cocoa bitterness around.. more milky chocolates and complementary roasted bitterness on the finish. Medium-bodied with a very smooth feel across the palate.. the levels and placement of bitterness and roast worked perfectly.. just excellent stuff. This was surprisingly good, and I hope more people get to try it when it’s fresh.

An absolutely delicious Milk Stout! I highly advise you pick this up whenever possible. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Pours deep black with lactose notes and light vanilla sweetness. A light creamy texture which allows th lactose dominate with a fabulous nuanced bit of toasted sweet grains. Nice oily finish. Love this stout! DoublEE (782) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2013
The taste is has some nice smooth chocolate with some creamy sweetness. The mouthfeel is almost velvety, very very smooth, but somewhat light. Overall, I honestly can’t find anything that I really don’t like about this brew. It’s incredibly drinkable. Awesome stuff. mully262 (56) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle. Very dark body with light brown head. Smooth on the palate, roasted flavor with creamy milk aftertaste. Gridfather (32) - - MAY 4, 2014
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?
