Dark near black body with a tan head leaves good lacing as it leaves the glass on its journey.

Smell is a bit of roasted barley along with some sweet malt tones and a bit of hop and grain.

Taste is well balanced. Just enough sweetness to meld with the roasted barley. Light hop bitterness keeps the finish from becoming cloying.

Goes down silky smooth and thick. Suprisingly drinkable considering how hot it was outside but it will get heavy and fill you up pretty quick.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a thin tan head on a black body.
The aroma is a nice mixture of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate.
The taste fairly sweet upfront, then moves to a roasty profile to the end. There's hardy a note of bitterness, but it balances out the sweetness quite well.
The texture is a little thin at first, then gains some heft, though it's smooth throughout.
Delicious.

Dark brown and black body, mild tan head on it. Aroma really has just barely any lactose in it. Very mild and chill.

Great taste though, the rolled oats really give a silky texture to the roasted barley. Coffee flavors are minimal, despite being claimed. The lactose while mild in the aroma, is a really good fit on the tongue.

This one is all about being smooth. I think this might be a variation of the regular outlaw oatmeal stout, because I don't recall the lactose before. Now they call it Outlaw Milk Stout at the brewery, but its the same beer that won 2008 World Beer Cup Silver and 2011 GABF Bronze.

Drank during Stoutweek on my way into March Madness 2013.
