Dark brown, approaching black, with a finger and a half of lush cola-colored head (on nitro). Sweet aroma of cherry and chocolate. Roasted malt and a touch of smoke are added to that mix in the flavor. Medium bodied and slightly oily mouthfeel. Honestly, this wasn't as good as I expected.

Dark brown in color... Bold milky aftertaste. Not so much chocolate. Overall drinks very easy.

Cowbell Imperial Oatmeal Milk Stout
I also had this one on Nitro, but I had it at the House of 1000's beers in New Kensington in a tulip glass. The Nitro was oh so good to it, yumm.
Eye: It is easy on the eyes with a black oil look and a beige head.
Nose: The smell hit me right away with vanila, milk, cocoa. Maybe because of the nitro the vanilla was very much the dominant smell, or maybe I was mistaking the lactose sugar for vanilla
Taste: It was again to me vanilla, chocolate, coffee, dark malts, ultra-smooth with me not noticing the alcohol much. It was very balanced.
Moulth: It was very smooth, creamy as a result of the nitro. Not much carbonation. Pretty thick feel. Like a chocolate vanilla beer milk shake, my heaven.
This stout is one of my favorite dessert sort of beers. It reminded me right away of Southern Tiers creme brulee stout. I actually like it better than the creme brule stout though, sorry Southern Tier I still love you.
