4.22/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Dark, dark brown with slight white lacing and evident caramel colored rim. Head disappears quickly back into beer.

S: Roasted coffee (not too strong, however), roasted nut, sweet caramel (touch of it).

T: Great taste. Full-bodied beer with roasted coffee flavor and malt, hint of caramel, some cocoa and nut flavors.

M: Creamy with more carbonation than expected. Full-bodied beer that is a good example of a creamy stout.

O: Really good beer overall. Layered flavors, great hints of coffee and caramel in scent, and textured mouthfeel.

3.43/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

No bottle date

A: pours a dark brown with a small latte foam head with little resonance. Falls to a sheet of the same with spotty lacing. Looks good, but nothing impressive.

S: Cream, cocoa, hay, sheetgrass, cold pressed coffee. Nutty flavors. Malts are sweet and creamy. Very nice. Smallest hint of salted caramel.

T: Sweet and creamy yet again. Plenty of cocoa, latte flavors. Dry and roasted dark chocolate malts. The lactos is very evident here.

M: Medium body with moderate to spritely carbonation. Dry finish. I think the carb is a touch high for the style and the body a touch low.

O: Nice, easy drinker. The best milk stout, no, but good. Sweet in the right places.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass with about 1 cm of head and a deep black color. The nose on this brew is great with notes of dried fruit, chocolate and aromatics that only oats can bring to the table. 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.

3.8/5  rDev 0%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a dark brownish black. Nearly opaque and only slight hints of brown highlights when held to the light. No head to speak of and no lacing on the glass.

S - Faint hints of chocolate and coffee. Some slight sweetness too, but overall very hard to distinguish any noticeable aromas.

T - Wow! The taste very much redeems the lackluster appearance and smell. Rich roasted coffee and creamy smooth oatmeal flavors intertwine nicely.

M - Slightly watery for an oatmeal stout. Doesn't quite compliment the creamy flavors like I would hope. On the plus side it is very drinkable and the carbonation is good too.

4.63/5  rDev +21.8%
look: 3 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured into a snifter.

3.0 A: Black color. Just about one finger of light brown head that fell quickly and left no lacing.

5.0 S: Wonderful interplay of lactose and chocolate. Actually, there's a good hit of coffee in there as well, so this is much like a mocha latte. Light roastiness and plenty of oats. This is incredibly intense, but also incredibly appealing. Excellent!

4.5 T: Taste is a lot like the nose. Lactose, chocolate, and coffee flavors do the trick again. Oats, a light roastiness, and grainy malts add complexity. Really nice again.

4.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and insanely smooth.

5.0 D: The taste could have easily been a five. This is a damn tasty brew and shockingly close to Cowbell in terms of flavor profile and quality. I think I need to get ahold of several more of these.

3.5/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured out of the bottle a dark brown/black watery liquid which was nearly opaque, with practice over the course of three bottles I was able to stir up a 1" head, however with a normal pour, just the faintest trace of foam appeared and didn't stick around long.

A pleasant aroma of roasted malt, oats, chocolate and sweet lactose, seems to be as advertised.

Taste was heavier on the roasted malt elements, definite chocolate presence, mildy sweet with a notable sweet/sour dark fruit element that I couldn't place maybe cherries or dark plums. Finishes slightly burnt/bitter. Mouthfeel is terribly thin, carbonation is light.

Overall the aroma hits the right notes, taste is 'okay', mouthfeel needs to be re-tooled but quite honestly I had no trouble finishing the six pack.

Holy mackerel, I still can't believe I'm this close to being finished with this project...Crikey....

Another extra from excellent trader GraniteSkunk, this time from uber-small Lucan, MN with a population of 220...fun!

The basics: no idea on price and 5.8% ABV...cheers!

A little bit thin in color on the pour...I expect my stouts to be opaque, and this one lets some color through. A decent enough head forms and quickly disappears...Very slight lacing...

Aromas are sweet, as might be expected from a milk stout, what with the unfermentable sugars and all...Get a decent enough malt component among the milky chocolaty stuff...A bit faint if you ask me (and you didn't)...

Flavor is way more thin than I'd expect or hope to see in a milk stout. It's almost like water was added afer the fermentation process!! Really disappointing, in fact. It's almost like a Milk Stout Italian Soda!!! Super thin, and the malt component is almost absent...Very poor in my opinion...I'm actually surprised this is an oatmeal stout the body is so thin. Almost a drainpour in my opinion. They really need to work out the recipie on this. It's not serviceable at all...Very unfortunate as I was seriously hoping for more. Even the finish is like "what the heck was that...where'd it go"...This is the Calista Flockhart of Milk Stouts (as opposed to the, say, Keira Knightly of Milk Stouts)...you are big boys, figure it out...

What I like most: The price...(again, figure it out)...

What I like least: everything else...

Verdict: Unless it has a crapload of money you can spend, don't waste your time and if you do, don't brag to your friends about it...

<edit> I must be a totally uneducated beer drinker...Somehow 25 other people have rated this an average of an A-...That can't be possible with stuff like Mackeson XXX and Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout out there in the World, but I'm just a novice, right???

<edit #2> I am aware Samuel Smith's ISN'T a milk stout...It is, however, an oatmeal stout...I'm re-reading some of the other reviews of this and I can't possibly believe this is the same beer they drank...It's not possible given what I'm reading, but I'm looking right at the label on the bottle and it's the same...This stuff is watered down swill, in my opinion, and I can't believe they had the same stuff I'm having...sorry...

4.05/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Very very dark brown bordering on but not quite black. One or two finger light brown head not great on the lace but a nice texture.

S: Stouty. Roast is the dominant but with a doughy undertone not unlike oatmeal cookies. It's a very soft, warming smell.

T: There's still a lot of roast in the taste. More roast than I would like in an Oatmeal stout, but not so much that it totally kills it. Quite dry, just a touch astringent. No bready tastes or anything remotely sweet. The flavors do seem to blend together pretty good though.

M: Smooth, very smooth, but not full.

D: Highly drinkable, a great beer.

3.8/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Dark brown--nearly black with a thin head and minimal retention; lacing fades rather quickly; delicate bubbles do penetrate the surface quickly and quite nicely

S: A strong and plentiful barrage of oats with roasted coffee coming shortly after; this is sweet, malty, and milky; it smells pretty darn good

T: While the oats and roasted coffee hits you up front, it all fades rather quickly leaving a somewhat unpleasant sour note--almost like slightly sour milk; because the back end isn't all that great, you are inclined to keep drinking quickly--which is okay because really the first 2/3 of this beer drinking experience is quite nice: coffee, oats, cream, slightly charred malts, and a pleasant sweetness that doesn't overwhelm; it's just that weirdness at the end...

F: Too thin for my taste but for a light-medium bodied beer, it does manage to cling to the roof of the mouth fairly okay and is decently creamy

D: This is a nice offering from Brau Bros. I just wish it tasted as good as it smells; I came back to bump up the overall slightly because as this beer went down, it got better...in the end it really is a nice oatmeal milk stout; good work Brau Bros.

Thanks to mnbearsfan for this 12 oz bottle via trade. Poured a thin black with a mocha/tan small one-finger head. Nose was some smoke/ash, chocolate, molasses and brown sugar. Taste was vanilla, oatmeal, chocolate and coffee as was expected, but also some fruit (cherries?). Body was smooth but thin with medium carbonation. Overall, a good offering in a style I like, but I have found others I like more.

Saw this a few days ago for only $7.99/sixer and decided to give it a shot considering this one of my favorite styles of beer and it's locally made. I did have reservations though since I've been less than impressed with most offerings from this brewery. That being said.... Pours a dark brown color, almost completely black in the glass, and despite a hard pour it produced little head, with no lacing. This was the only part of this beer that was less than amazing! Full, luxurious aroma of chocolate, cream, light coffee, and sweetness with no alcohol coming through. Smells heavenly, and the chocolate and lactose really dominate the aroma, which I really love. Taste is a home run! Creamy milk chocolate up front, a touch of graham cracker, a hint of espresso, and just enough enough charred malts to make this interesting. It's sweet but not cloyingly so, just a perfect amount of balance between the sweetness/toffee/chocolate and the roast that really make this stand out. There is a slight twang from the lactose in the middle, but is then washed away by a semi-dry chocolaty finish. I have to say that this is EXACTLY what I look for in a milk stout. Nothing stands out too much away from the rest, everything is perfectly balanced, and it's incredibly drinkable. Mouthfeel is creamy and silky smooth, probably from the toasted and rolled oats used in the mash. Carbonation is a bit low, but that only serves to reinforce the slick mouthfeel. Damn, this beer is WINNING! I can hardly believe this has come out of Brau Borthers, a very much underwhelming brewery for me, and I imagine this is a sign of good things to come from this brewer. If this truly is a new year round beer, I can see myself buying at least a couple sixers a month. Great, great stuff here.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Dark brown with a frothy tan head that recedes into a thin collar.

S: Rich milk chocolate, light espresso and caramel.

T: Chocolate and roasted malts and slight lactose sweetness. Doesn’t have that milky lactose flavor I loved in Surly Four, but have yet to find another beer that does. There’s also a bit of dark fruityness (plum?), light oats, and finishes with a full, roasty bitterness.

M: Body is somewhat light, but very smooth and carbonation is appropriately low.

Really nice coffee and chocolate flavors and the cask yeast seems to add a little extra character. Bold, but still a very drinkable stout – the kind you need to have 2 or 3 of. Really good stuff.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured into a nonic glass, this beautiful enough to frame and hang up on the wall. A rich black beer that is impenetrable by light shares the glass with an equally rich inch high head. The head subsides to practically nothing with a bit of lace.

S: A pleasant and welcome mix of roasted coffee and malts and chocolate. Very faint notes of caramel and the occasional whiff of hops.

T: There is a lot going on in every sip of this beer. It begins with a rush of chocolate milk and ends with a complex mix of oatmeal and roasted coffee. Every single sip is an experience that just about anyone should enjoy.

M: This is incredibly creamy, thick bodied beer that has no noticable carbonation.

D: It's about as easy to drink as they come. This will be a beer I reach for once the snow starts to fly and so should you.

Got this at the builder setion at Hy-Vee Drugtown.

The glass becomes a vessle for this ominous looking mass that is so dark there's just a hint if brown on the edges. The aroma is cocoa with a hint of toffee and perhaps cinammon. It's taste, WOW! The cocoa and milk are most of the flavor and are very sweet, with some roasted malt on top. This is like drining a chololate brownie, it's so tasty. This is absolute repeat buy and I'm glad it's in the build a six-pack section.

I bought a bottle of Brau Brothers Moo Joos the other day in a mixed 6'er. Served cool but not cold, poured into a nonic.

A: This is almost pitch black. The head starts out strong but doesn't last long, and shrinks to a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. It looks oily.

S: Smells really nice. Chocolate with some coffee notes. Background of roasted malts.

T: Tastes great. Very nice chocolate and mocha notes. The lactose and oats make the beer nicely sweet but in no way cloying. I am not typically a fan of lactose sweetened beers, but this really works well.

M: The beer has a very smooth mouthfeel, almost oily. Creamy. This is lovely.

O: This is a very good sweet stout at any price, and even better since it retails at about $7 per 6 pack. I will be buying more of this for sure. Really an excellent beer from Brau Brothers.

This beer pours a very dark brown near black color. The head is a half an inch in height, and recedes into sticky tan lacing. The aroma is quite strong. Graham cracker, cream, roasted malt, and milk chocolate. Very nice. The taste is full of roasted malt with a hing of chocolate, and some very faint vanilla. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation, and a silky texture. Overall, this is a really good beer. I really like the way it straddles between two styles. One sip makes me think it is more of an oatmeal stout than a milk stout while the next sip makes me think the opposite. I can see this beer becoming one of my go to stouts.

Dark black color with one finger of head that slowly settled to a thin cap. Moderate amount of spotty lacing is left on the glass.

Aroma of milk chocolate, oatmeal, coffee, and roasted malt. A very good combination.

Flavor of milk chocolate and coffee. Slightly roasted flavor that balances the sweetness.

I expected a fuller body from the flake oat addition. Texture is creamy with a soft carbonation.

A good, balanced stout that has a lower ABV. Possible to drink a few of these in a sitting.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance-Inky black and totally opaque. Moderate crop of tan foam on top with decent retention, light lacing.

Aroma-Chocolate milk, roasted grain, fresh oatmeal, dark bread crusts. Light coffee, coffee creamer, and very low earthy hop aromatics. Smooth and roasty.

Flavor-Much more roast in the flavor, with coffee flavors and coffee creamer coming from the lactose addition. Light toasted notes and bread crusts also present. Sweetness up front is cut in the finish by a fair amount of roast acidity. Hop bitterness is low and hop flavor is barely perceptible.

Mouthfeel-Full, silky, smooth, and oily body from the lactose and the oats. Carbonation is moderate. This is hellishly smooth.

A solid milk stout, with good aroma and flavor, and impeccable mouthfeel. Probably my favorite Brau Bros. Brew.

First bottle still cold. This review at a warmer temp and it appears to make all the difference.
Nice coffee aroma with some chocolate and classic oatmeal characteristics.
Smallish dark head that laces nicely. Very dark with barely a ray of light showing through.
Semi-rich coffee flavor with sizeable feel surrounding a smaller body. Light dark chocolate. Even the mouthfeel is better warm with a smoother carbonation enhancing the smoothness of the body. As noted on the label a small fruitiness. Not quite the oily slickness I like (although other reviews have picked it up).
I nice drink, with easy drinkablility.
Thanks Geoff.

Acquired from Sinatra716 via Show Someone What You're Made Of BIF so a big THANK YOU goes out to him!
Poured in to a pint glass.

A: This beer pours nice deep, dark opaque black. No head or lacing appear on this beer.

S: Nose is a nice sweet chocolate, mild milk/cream notes and a hint of light roastiness.

T: Taste starts nice and sweet. Milk chocolate sweetness hits the forefront, with very light vanilla notes. A hearty roasted malt fills out the middle. Finish has a bit of coffee and char notes.

M: Lighter side of medium body, medium carbonation, nice and clean body with a crisp, dry finish to it.

O: Goes does very easy, quite tasty, not very filling, mild kick, great representation of style. I enjoy milk stouts and this is a highly drinkable, and very enjoyable beer. I would hit this one up regularly if it were distributed here.

Appearance- Pitch black pour with very little head from my particular bottle. Head is a nice tan color, but not much there and it diminished quickly.

Smell- First smell was of roasted hops, then got hit with a sweet fruity smell. On second sniff really smell the chocolate.

Taste- Wow! Really great flavor, very sweet taste right away, kind of a fruity with a chocolate hops mix. Very little bitterness to finish.

Mouthfeel- Some carbonation, but not a lot. I got a very creamy texture, mildly thick like I feel a stout should be. This almost leave a film behind in your mouth almost as if you just took a drink of whole milk.

Drinkability- Love this stout I had three back to back, but got a bit full afterwards. Not a high ABV so no drunk feeling.

A superb stout, especially for the price!! Will definitely purchase again.

Love the name

Poured from a 12 oz. brown bottle to an Imperial Pint glass. No freshness date I can find. $7.99 for a 6-pack.

Appearance: Pours black with brown edges with a 2-finger light brown fizzy head. Not much head retention. Almost zero lacing. Looks rather tepid.

Smell: Chocolate and dark fruits in the nose. Roasted malt and light roasted coffee. There seems to be a slight metallic note to it, but it's not overpowering in any way. You also have to dig a little to find the nose in this one as it seems to be a tad muted.

Taste: Wow that is unusual, but very good. Sweet up front hitting you with vanilla, dark fruit and sweet cream. Very fruity in the middle with roasted coffee and toasted malt lingering on the palate long after. Earthy hops poke their way through towards the end. Lingering citrus brings it all together leaving my mouth juicy. Almost zero bitterness yet not cloyingly sweet due to the roasted character. Perfect balance with multiple layers of enjoyment spaced out over each sip. This is really big stout flavor in a small stout package.

Mouthfeel: Mouthfeel is medium and oily smooth with a medium carbonation.

Drinkability: High

To be honest I was not very impressed to start out, but this is one tasty brew I will definitely seek out in the future. Good luck trying to find a better sweet stout for this price.

From a bottle. Pours with decent body. Head that pours very tan. Leaves a low amt of lace. Clear tan, dark prune at the edges.
Black color.

S - low malt sweetness, hint of smokiness with a touch of ashy character. Slight chocolate malt. No real hop presence yet it seems well balanced with bitterness, malt to alcohol.

T - specialty malt with the pale malt base. Oatmeal resins and chocolate feel. A bit simple. I thought this would have a more dextrinous feel.

Wish this were a bit more fuller bodied. Could use a touch of a revision for next year's brew but this was an excellent effort. Give it a try and support small MN breweries!

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.
