Notes / Commercial Description:
We love this beer here at the brewery, and think you will have one of those “I’ve never-tasted-a-beer-like-that” kind of moments when you try it!

What we really like about this beer is the smoothness that brewing with cream sugar brings to the palate. This smoothness balances out the copious quantities of roasted barley used in the brewing process to create a rich, complex, and delicious beer. If you have not been a stout drinker in the past, give this beer a try. It might just change your mind about how dark beers should taste. It tastes so rich, but is surprisingly easy to drink!

Brewed with 2Row Pale, Carapils, Vienna, Victory, Black, Roasted Barley, Malted White Wheat, Lactose Sugar, Flaked Oats. Hopped with Columbus, Willamette. 5.0% ABV, 14 IBU

Bought a 6'er of cans of this on a whim, never having had it before, but new to the area. Pours out to a near black, forming a modest dark tan head with poor retention and good lacing. The nose is quite nice, on the sweeter side, minimal hops, lots of dark chocolate, cocoa powder, dark roast coffee, chocolate syrup. Carb is about 2.5 or so. No off aromas. The mouthfeel is very very nice for a 5.0% abv beer, creamy, smooth, pleasant silkiness, and medium dense body. The taste is decent, but not as good as the nose. I'm not a fan of oatmeal in beers in general unless it's an big big stout which covers up the cardboardy taste, and it tastes here like a low attenuating british yeast and I'm no fan of most british yeasts, certainly every british yeast I've brewed with has been a total disappointment. There are nice chocolate and coffee notes, not overly roasted or acidic, a very nice roast profile. There is a lingering mineral character in addition to the cardboard and newspaper. Although not overpowing the beer, it's certainly a detractor. Minimal bitterness, good for the style, balanced by the lactose.

A nice oatmeal stout. While not a fan of the (what I suspect to be) british yeast and oatmeal cardboard notes, the mouthfeel, roast and chocolate/coffee note makes up for it. Recommended if you're an oatmeal stout fan.

It looks okay, a dark brown with a tan head but the head dwindled quickly and leaves no lacing. The smell is roasted malts with chocolate and oats. The taste is a very light stout with roasted malts and oats. The mouthfeel is very light and an easy drinker. Overall it's not terrible, it's more of a session beer, and something I'd enjoy if I was out on an all day drinker.

Poured from 12oz can into glass. On bottom of can is stamped 'DRINK BY 03/03/18'.
Dark brown colored body, with mahogany highlights when presented to light. Two finger tan head settles to scattered islands and ring. No lacing.
Aroma of dark roasted malts, along with sweet lactose and dark chocolate.
Taste is a smooth procession of chocolate covered dark malts. Just a smidge of sweetness. No bitterness and very little after taste.
A thin mouth feel, with okay carbonation. Very easy to drink.
This is a good candidate for a session stout. Likely very good for the appropriate food pairings; this beer will not overpower rich and savory food dishes.

Not the sweetest milk stout but the flavors of unsweetened chocolate and lactic sugars are very well balanced. Not sure if I would have it again since I can think of other milk stouts that rocked my world.
