We love this beer here at the brewery, and think you will have one of those “I’ve never-tasted-a-beer-like-that” kind of moments when you try it!

What we really like about this beer is the smoothness that brewing with cream sugar brings to the palate. This smoothness balances out the copious quantities of roasted barley used in the brewing process to create a rich, complex, and delicious beer. If you have not been a stout drinker in the past, give this beer a try. It might just change your mind about how dark beers should taste. It tastes so rich, but is surprisingly easy to drink!

Super underrated cream stout. This is without question the best milk stout to pair with fried food on the planet. Love stouts and sports? This beer is perfect to pair with your game day faves.

Tall 16 oz can poured into Pilsner glass.

It looks : very tall almond colored head, measuring about three fingers and leaving locker rooms of sweaty, ballsy, mucky lace on the sides as it recedes. The body is mocha chocolate brown with almost no light penetrating.

It smells : The roasted malt and hop comes out balanced right away. Within that balance is cocoa bean, chocolate, molasses, licorice, spiced coffee. Bouquet is medium to strong.

It tastes : delicious. Sublime. It was a perfect choice for tonight. Dark, earthy anise-like spiciness combines with milk chocolate, oatmeal, roasted grain, and molasses. A slight hop sting hangs around at the end to let you know it was there all along. It's a sipper and its damn delicious. I feel like a king.

It feels : like squirting whipped cream into your mouth and letting it dissolve. It's so creamy, full bodied, yet ends roasted and dry like charred coffee. So good.

Overall : this is why I drink beer. This feeling, right here. Yes.

Fantastic oatmeal milk stout. For 5% this beer is spot on fantastic. Silky mouthfeel, a light sweet oat and chocolate nose, and a nice sweet chocolate and cream taste.

Had this at a local bar after a couple rounds of fireball. I asked if they had any stout and this was recommended. I really enjoyed it after pouring from can into 16 oz pint glass. Has a sweet taste.
