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.

This poured out as a deep black color with a thin yellowish head on top. It faded really quickly, leaving hardly any retention and definitely no lacing. The smell of the beer is a little on the strange side... not really appealing to me, there are some subtle chocolate and roasted aromas but there is something else in there I'm not really caring for. The taste of the beer is a little harsh and burnt right away but as the beer warms up it becomes a little more chocolaty and creamy. The mouthfeel is lighter than I expected, decent carbonation also. Overall this beer was ok, but not something I need to have again. Glad I got to have it though.
