This is supposed to be an oatmeal milk stout. All I can taste is the coffee aspect. It lacks the lactose sweetness and oatmeal silkiness which are usually present in them. As stated previously, this bears an uncanny resemblance to iced coffee.

I am pretty new to craft beers but have tried several coffee stouts and oatmeal stouts. I like this one a lot!

Great taste and goes down smoothly. I usually have some OLD 56 nearby as I don't like to drink too many beers with a high ABV in one sitting. They go well together.

I guess this isn't a very professional review, but I highly recommend this beer and this brewery.

12FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a snifter

A - It is basically black with an inch of mocha head.

S - The lactose sugar is evident. I get some sweet chocolate, cocoa, and coffee.

T - The taste doesn't quit live up to the smell. It is a coffee with creamer taste. It is good, but not as strong as the smell.

M - Medium to full

O - It is actually better than I anticipated. It has some nice coffee notes, and I like the creamy mouthfeel.

After just taste testing a Deschutes Black Butte Porter, poured a MJ to keep the MoJo going:

Appetizer (Color/Aroma/Carb): molasses black (even poured slower than most out of bottle); almost no carbonation, and just a scent.

Entree: cold, wet, and inviting (compared to Deschutes, subtle initial bite and aftertaste); you can't go wrong (believe my first OMS = oatmeal milk stout that I can remember--and I mean remember by type name - of having tried). Until I've compared several others, this one a nice (if not super nice) stand-by.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Poured dark brown with a half inch tan head that cuts in half and half again, then stays lacing the glass as it goes down.

Smell: Spice first, then chocolate. Pleasant and semi complex.

Taste: Yeasty, malty and sweet. not as much spice in taste as in smell. Has more of a malt flavor. just barely a touch of bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body. Tingly with medium carbonation. Tease of creaminess.

Overall: Its not a bad milk stout. Beautiful appearance. Its a little on the sweet side, but I would buy it again.
