Flaked oats and wheat add to the velvet mouthfeel, with the carbonation adding a honeycomb texture. Magnum and Sorachi Ace bring a berry and citrus fruitiness that amplifies the chocolate character of this inky leviathan.

Our smooth talking, naturally flavored milk stout will savage your senses in an uncharted abyss. Loaded to the gunnels with oatmeal and primed for a smoother ride. This is a black-hearted beast. Decadent notes of cacao, malty roastiness with hints of pit fruits await.

L: dark black pour with some light ahining through - poured from draft at Brewdog brewery in Las Vegas. Huge milky head which stays for a while until back into liquid form.
S: Getting lactose, milk, chocolate, molasses, slight dark fruits too.
T: milk chocolate, coffee, slight malts with molasses. So easy to drink.
F: Easy to drink, can’t tell it’s 7% at all. Wow. Medium to full bodied.
O: I had to try something at the brewery and I’m a huge stout guy so I definitely enjoyed a perfectly well made milk stout. Would recommend for sure.

Deep copper with a 1" thick, foamy tan head, which lasts. Heavy glass clinging lacing.

Aroma of strong coffee, cocoa, roast malt.

Taste follows nose: Coffee, cocoa, roast malt.

Full body, thick & creamy, light carbonation. Oily, astringent finish.

Outstanding. A very good stout.

Marilyn's of Morgantown, 3/18/22.

Cocoa on the nose and very smooth.

The flavor and feel go hand in hand. Smooth, silky cocoa, slight smoke, and just the right smooth of sweetness to round it out.

Can we go visit the brewery? Please?

Almost cask like pour at Brewdog Doghouse Edinburgh. Black with a two finger beige head. Sweet, milky aroma, chocolate, roast. Taste is a balance of chocolate and roasty malts, faint coffee, sweet lactose, light bitterness and a bit of a dry finish.

Super smooth and just a superior sweet, dark beer. I do not like IPA's or sours and this is the complete opposite of those.

Start a little bit more sour than a typical style. It is extremely smooth throughout and has a tasty coffee finish. Lots of vanilla in there too..

330 ml bottle, at Malone’s Irish Bar, Aberdeen. Oatmeal milk stout, 4.7% ABV. Black colour, small beige head. Nice roasty aroma, notes of coffee and chocolate. The flavour is also roasty, with distinct notes of chocolate, vanilla and lactose, but not too sweet. Decent beer.

From the 16 oz can in a snifter. This solid little stout pours a rich
blackish brown with a nice fat head of khaki foam with excellent lacing.
Nose of dark coffee, dark cocoa, faint vanilla, and light char. Flavors
surpass the nose with dark cocoa, dark coffee, light vanilla, char, roast,
and a touch of cream. Decent mouth feel; medium full body, smooth
from the nitro, coating, and finishing lightly dry but a touch on the thin side.

Overall, a solid brew, but liked it better when it was not on nitro back when.
