look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Lightly chilled 12 oz. bottle into 12 oz. shaker.

Look- Pours a rich deep brown with a dense silky cap of off-white foam that sticks around for a minute or two. Decent stick, ropy lacing.

Smell- Sweet, loads of dark roast grains and coffee. Nothing too flashy, but well done.

Taste- Baker's chocolate and espresso laced with sweetened condensed milk. Mellow mocha through the finish with a bit more roasted grain and coffee at the end.

Mouthfeel- Medium-full body, medium for the style. Light carbonation, creamy feel. Dry-ish finish, light astringency but not overbearing. Easy drinking.

Overall- Pretty standard profile but a very well-executed brew. Above average for the style, but not something I'd seek out.

Pours a big, frothy, tan head. Rich, toasted coffee aroma. Black color. Starts with a tart, bright, acidic flavor that has notes of deeply roasted malt. Medium bitterness gives way for even more deep, toasted malt in the finish. As it lingers, roasted coffee beans sit on the palate.

Overall, not bad. I really like the toasted flavors, thought the acidity is a bit too high for my tastes. It's smooth, but not as thick as I'd like.

Bottle poured into Uptown Bar pint glass.

A- Black, next to no light comes through. No Head.

S- Malt, sweet roast with that sweet malt. Coffee, very sweet coffee scent.

T-Follow nose in malt forward. Roasted malt. Starts super sweet, becomes very sweet, roasted malt yet balance with bitter coffee after.

M- Medium bodied. Very balanced. All I am getting is roasted malt here with a touch of coffee. Delicious.

O- Definitely a lighter style of stout. Hits every point of a sweeter style stout. With milky overtones yet musty. Cheers.

12oz bottle with no date

Very dark burgundy color, with a tall mocha head. Smell is wet grain, toffee, caramel malts. There is also an odd, almost fruity smell in there i can't put my finger on. Taste is sweet, with a slightly bitter, roasted coffee-like finish. Milky light-medium feel with little carbonation.

Nice easy drinking stout.

a really drinkable stout, combining the best elements of a milk stout and an oatmeal stout. the pour is the darkest brown, with no light able to pass through, and a few fingers of off white bubbles that slowly fade to a thin film. the nose is definitely sweet from the lactose sugars, but also bitter from the dark roasted malts. I pick up a little vanilla and a touch of dark chocolate too. the flavor roasted barley heavy, dark and bitter without as much sweetness as the nose suggests until the very end. this is a hearty warming cold weather beer, with a velvety smooth texture from the oatmeal and a fuller soft body. there is a little chocolate flavor in the finish, enough to counteract the bitterness. an elegant stout that would be extremely well suited t the nitro tap. my first beer from brau brothers, looking forward to my next. this is very well done.
