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!

Continuing my oatmeal stout (or related) quest, I was recommended this canned 4-pack. BA marks it as 'retired' but a quick look to their website makes no mention of it. I've seen this at Steve's in Madison for a while so not sure how this came to be marked as retired. In any case, a very quaffable ale.
A: Dark brown opaque with a thin but puffy an cratered head
S: Malty, coffee, slight vanilla - subtle but noticeable
T: Coffee and vanilla noticeable but not overwhleming, and something else (toffee?, caramel?) - regardless, it was quite easy to drink with nary a hint of alcohol. Well blended.
M: Low-to-medium fullness upfront that melts farily quickly with a very slight fizz on the finish. After the head was gone, the body was much reduced.
O: This fit the hallmarks of a decent oatmeal stout in terms of the body and fullness, though a little less body that I had hoped. The coffee and vanilla paired well balancing any bitterness from the coffee roast. From the website this stout is brewed with cream sugar, so that may explain it.

Creamy and delicious. Bitter end, but not too bitter.

Can pour into pint glass. Pours a pitch dark color with a thin and reedy off white head. Nose is milk chocolate and filter coffee. A very smooth cream stout with a great lactose feel to it. Solid.

Very dark. Thin head.
Hint of sweet chocolate, slight coffee
and of course roasted malts.
Mildly thick mouthfeel, yet drinks light.

Was on tap...

Thin for a stout. No head retention. Drinkable, but forgettable
