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.

On tap @ The Library

Appearance: its dark in here so i assume the beer is the same. One finger ultra creamy beige head

Smell: Very clean aromas of milk chocolate and roasted malt

Taste: A wonderful milk chocolate taste upfront and roasted malt mid palate. Both come together perfectly throughout the finish

Mouthfeel: light medium body; One of the smoothest beers iv ever had, slight coffee like bitter finish

Overall: Absolutely world class oatmeal/milk stout right here. The milk chocolate characters of say Left Hand nitro milk stout and the roasted malt aspect of Rogues chocolate stout meld together perfectly for me. They blend so well yet stand out on their own as different flavors. This is one of the better stouts iv had in a while period, and im glad to call it local. Hell of a job Voodoo!!
