Dark brown, lighter to the edge, almost no head. Aroma was like they switched beers on me, no roast, no coffee, no lactose.

Taste finally hit some lactose notes, very minimal. Sweetness is kinda weird for me, less like sugar/lactose, more like coffee sweetener packet. Mouthfeel could use more 2 row. Delving into brown ale territory.

No off flavors, this was meh.

Sampled this past Saturday on 12/19/15. Had this a couple times in the past but never did a review on it so here it goes. Comes in a 12-ounce bottle and bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a "It's 5 O'clock Somewhere" pint glass.

Brew pours very close to a pitch-black in color with a thin beige head. Decent amount of lacing is seen when sipped, which was a surprise since the head was small. Lots going on with the aroma as there are dark roasted malts, hint of coffee and brown sugar. More going on with the taste as there is some vanilla and caramel in the mix also. Good balance of the flavors with nothing over powering anything else. Finishes slightly dry with the coffee and milk sugar near the end. Overall, a very tasty brew. Lighter side of medium-bodied with perfect carbonation.

Rating is for S'mores Moo Joos (32 oz crowler from N St. Drive In) - will revise and replace rating the next time I have regular Moo Joos.

Smell is graham cracker extract, chocolate milk, hazelnut, and marshmallow cream. Taste is chocolate, graham cracker, lactose, with a nutty finish. Smells much better than it tastes, but a really easy drinking dessert beer.

Considering that this is both an oatmeal and milk stout, I expected something as smooth as it gets. Instead, there's a strong coffee aftertaste that lingers a bit too much and hurts it as a whole. Fine, but not amazing.

Meh... this is an okay Oatmeal stout. I was surprised how little body feel this beer had. The color and smell were fantastic. The feel of this beer reminded me of the thinness that comes from brewing with extracts versus whole grains (couldn't imagine this being extract brewed). Anyway, the flavor was a solid sweet oatmeal with a little bitter aftertaste. Again, I was a little a taken back as this bottle says oatmeal milk stout and I was expecting something sweeter and thicker. I would definitely recommend trying the beer, but in my opinion, it was underwhelming.

This is a very run of the mill. It has a good nose and a decent upfront taste, but the after taste leaves me lacking and the finish leaves a bad taste in your mouth. You could do worse, but not something I would seek out again.
