I'm categorizing this as a milk stout because of the lactose in it, but it also has oats and coffee...and an abv of 8.9%. Thus really, an imperial coffee oatmeal milk stout. And what a dandy it is.

Pours a pitch black body with a tight creamy brown head. Aroma is fantastic. Milk chocolate, roasted malts, a little sweet burnt caramel and nice coffee aroma. Flavor follows suit with a balance that speaks of the remarkable state of equilibrium that this beer attains. Incredibly well balanced. Incredibly drinkable. Incredibly flavorful. A masterpiece. There's a nice sweet tootsie roll malt center of gravity. The Sumatra coffee contributes perfectly. This is not a one sided beer that tastes only like coffee. Lactose adds a nice sweet touch to it. Oats contribute some flavor as well as mouthfeel. And afterwards, there's that nice lingering roasted coffee bitterness. Oh, and for a 9% beer, there's barely any sign of alcohol. As I said before, a masterpiece.
