On tap at Stout in NYC. Looks as you would expect an oatmeal stout to be. Very dark with a small brownish head. Lacing along the sides as I go through it.

Nice dark taste with that expected oatmeal after taste.

A pretty solid oatmeal stout but not the best I've ever had. A little too carbonated for my likes but something I would have again.

Poured from a bottle into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours an almost opaque dark brown with a small layer of off white head that fades to a ring around the edge of the glass. 3.5

Smell: You can definitely tell this is a milk stout. Sweetness is dominant over the roast with a hint of honey. 4

Taste: I'm enjoying this a lot. The roast is quite smooth and the sweetness reminds me of honey. Not picking up as much lactose here as I did in the smell. Slight bitterness to the finish. 4

Mouthfeel: The body is medium and very smooth. The carbonation is tingly and the finish is mildly dry. 4

Overall: Really happy I got this as an extra in a trade. Would have another.4

On tap at the brewery. Poured into pint glass.
Thick black; nice white foam.
Roasted malty aromas, with similar flavor. Roasted malty; slight coffee as well.
Good stout. Not amazing, but really nice and smooth drinkable stout. Worth a try if you want a good stout for the masses...

Drank on tap, perfectly poured into a proper stout glass.

A-deep and dark brown/black color with a mocha cream head that thins out and leaves behind a bit of lacing.

S-sweet roasted malts and coffee and chocolate.

T-roasted malt sweetness and coffee dominate the flavor of this pungent stout. A dry finish helps the flavor linger.

M-thin and watery, no sign of any body that the lactose additives are supposed to provide.

O-looks and tastes very good. I like stout and I'll go back to this one.

A - Pitch black with a nice full inch of mocha colored head. Nice looking stout.

S - Mild smelling but smells of lactose, coffee, and chocolates.

T - Wow this is good it's a very light drink but has more body than Left hands milk stout. Sugar coffee flavors and mild chocolates make this beer delicious.

M - Medium bodied not think so drink ability is good.

Overall man I should have got some more of this. About to try a left hand again to see if it's this good but a very solid milk stout that I would love to try again.
