3.65/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured at fridge temp. Pours black with light tan head. Nose is vanilla, lactose, oatmeal, roasted malts, toffee, and light coffee. This is really nice on the nose. Some dark fruit comes through.

Taste is light and a bit watery. Not surprising given the low ABV. I am honestly not used to drinking stouts that are under 9%, so I won't knock this one for being a bit light. Chocolate, lactose, and coffee come through. It's tasty. Very nice if you are looking for a light stout. Mostly sweet - not really getting any roasted malts or wood on the taste. Definitely some blackberries and cherries.

Mouthfeel is light. Overall, a pretty good light stout.

Bought a 6-pack cans $10.99 Whole Foods

Smell of chocolate, coffee
Heavy-medium mouthfeel, creamy
Low carbonation
Taste of chocolate, coffee, sweet, creamy vanilla , kind of like if you put vanilla ice cream in coffee
Overall it's good as a dessert. One is enough. Would be better if they barrel age it to reduce sweetness and increase ABV to make it a good sipper.

No head, jet black body. Smell is roasted coffee, very distinct, a hint of dark chocolate and caramel too. Taste is what you’d expect, light roast coffee, a hint of chocolate, with a sweet finish and notes of vanilla and caramel. Finish is smooth. Overall, good but not great, what you’d expect from a cold brew type stout.

tasty new one from mother earth, i wish they dropped new stuff a little more regularly, because its always good. this is a nice rich oatmeal stout done with coffee, vanilla, and lactose, and its nice for a number of reasons, the first being that the lactose isnt overdone, this doesnt even finish too sweet because the coffee is so darkly roasted and intense in here, i actually think it balances the beer well, works nice in texture with the creamy oats too, one of the few beers out there right now where i am thankful for its contribution. the base stout is excellent, fuller bodied and smooth, off dry, and without much caramel malt middle sweetness, its about the roast. some big dark chocolate notes in it play real well together. the roast is intense here, bitter and approaching burnt, but its on the front end interestingly so the back half is kind of mellow. light nuttiness to it, the richness of the vanilla which also isnt overdosed to me, and perhaps just a little bit of an english type yeast character keeping it grounded and beery. this is smart beer, a nice recipe well executed and restrained in the right way with the additives. big bold coffee character, delicious base stout, and perfect little pops of accent throughout it, it also warms up nicely. obviously more of a winter thing than a summer one, but well enough made to be appealing anytime. nice work here!

12oz can poured into a nonic; pours very dark brown/black with a fairly large mocha-colored head; the nose really leads with a strong dose of fresh coffee grounds followed by some milky cocoa and vanilla sweetness. Fairly roasted, malty, with plenty of coffee and vanilla character on the palate, smooth and mildly creamy with a present bitterness on the finish. Delivers as a latte-like stout in my opinion.

12oz can from Hops & Bottles. Near black pour, foamy beige head. Coffee first in the aroma, some milk chocolate. Roasty bitterness leads the taste, milk sweetness, bitter.
