I am pretty new to craft beers but have tried several coffee stouts and oatmeal stouts. I like this one a lot!

Great taste and goes down smoothly. I usually have some OLD 56 nearby as I don't like to drink too many beers with a high ABV in one sitting. They go well together.

I guess this isn't a very professional review, but I highly recommend this beer and this brewery.

Saw this a few days ago for only $7.99/sixer and decided to give it a shot considering this one of my favorite styles of beer and it's locally made. I did have reservations though since I've been less than impressed with most offerings from this brewery. That being said.... Pours a dark brown color, almost completely black in the glass, and despite a hard pour it produced little head, with no lacing. This was the only part of this beer that was less than amazing! Full, luxurious aroma of chocolate, cream, light coffee, and sweetness with no alcohol coming through. Smells heavenly, and the chocolate and lactose really dominate the aroma, which I really love. Taste is a home run! Creamy milk chocolate up front, a touch of graham cracker, a hint of espresso, and just enough enough charred malts to make this interesting. It's sweet but not cloyingly so, just a perfect amount of balance between the sweetness/toffee/chocolate and the roast that really make this stand out. There is a slight twang from the lactose in the middle, but is then washed away by a semi-dry chocolaty finish. I have to say that this is EXACTLY what I look for in a milk stout. Nothing stands out too much away from the rest, everything is perfectly balanced, and it's incredibly drinkable. Mouthfeel is creamy and silky smooth, probably from the toasted and rolled oats used in the mash. Carbonation is a bit low, but that only serves to reinforce the slick mouthfeel. Damn, this beer is WINNING! I can hardly believe this has come out of Brau Borthers, a very much underwhelming brewery for me, and I imagine this is a sign of good things to come from this brewer. If this truly is a new year round beer, I can see myself buying at least a couple sixers a month. Great, great stuff here.

Poured into a snifter.

3.0 A: Black color. Just about one finger of light brown head that fell quickly and left no lacing.

5.0 S: Wonderful interplay of lactose and chocolate. Actually, there's a good hit of coffee in there as well, so this is much like a mocha latte. Light roastiness and plenty of oats. This is incredibly intense, but also incredibly appealing. Excellent!

4.5 T: Taste is a lot like the nose. Lactose, chocolate, and coffee flavors do the trick again. Oats, a light roastiness, and grainy malts add complexity. Really nice again.

4.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and insanely smooth.

5.0 D: The taste could have easily been a five. This is a damn tasty brew and shockingly close to Cowbell in terms of flavor profile and quality. I think I need to get ahold of several more of these.

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass with about 1 cm of head and a deep black color. The nose on this brew is great with notes of dried fruit, chocolate and aromatics that only oats can bring to the table. The taste is has some nice smooth chocolate with some creamy sweetness. The mouthfeel is almost velvety, very very smooth, but somewhat light. Overall, I honestly can't find anything that I really don't like about this brew. It's incredibly drinkable. Awesome stuff.

Love this beer. Even better if you get it in their tap room. Good beer to savor with a meal.
