A: Dark brown almost opaque, 1/2 inch khaki head that dissipates quickly, no lacing to speak of

S: Coffee, chocolate

T: Sweet, I get the coffee and chocolate, no hops

M: Medium to Heavy

O: I usually dont like Blue Moon other than the original Belgian White but they have made a few here lately that I am digging. This is a nice coffee stout that is not setting the world on fire but is a decent craft offering. Kudos to them for branching out and doing a good job!

Pretty good I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised. Picked up a 12-pack at the convenience store next door because I didn't feel like driving for some beer. I wasn't expecting much considering it's blue moon but a coffee oatmeal stout sounded perfect so fuck it right?

This beer has impressive coffee and vanilla notes that do a good job as coming off balanced and natural. If the selection you're presented is lackluster grab this for sure!

12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter.
Very dark brown body, opaque in the glass, with a thin tan head that has surprising retention.

The aroma is mild, with coffee and chocolate mixed in with dark roasted grains; hints of toffee.

Flavor: mild, as expected from Blue Moon. Slightly more bitter than sweet, this could pass for a milk stout. A bit less dark roasted malt flavor, and flavor altogether, than I'd prefer.

Overall: A recommended coffee stout given the rarity of decaf coffee use in ales.

I happen to love this.
Then again I don't consume brew constantly. But this could be a daily brew for me if I chose to but lucky its a winter beer.

It smells just like cappuccino oatmeal would smell like which is delicious, tastes just like it too for the most part if you poured beer instead of milk into it.

From a bottle, pours a murky brown with a one finger lasting tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and a bit of cocoa. Taste is dominated by creamy malt with some caramel, coffee, and vanilla. Overall, it has the smoothish quality characteristic of an oatmeal stout, but compared to others in this class (e.g., Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout is my favorite) this Blue Moon felt "hollow".

Pours much lighter than most stouts with thin lacing that quickly fades. The taste is non-objectionable but not very interesting. Light on the coffee, light on the chocolate, no reason to seek this out.

Most craft beer drinker's, from what I gather, would rather drink donkey piss than actually give the macro brewers a shot. Fortunatetly for me, though I consider myself a half-decent craft beer drinker, will every now-and-then partake from the "evil big guys."

I have enjoyed quite a few Blue Moon's in my time, but this one was a mixed bagged. On the one hand, it had a great dark stout look with a head that poured out thick - but then dissipated faster than someone throwing out yesterday's newspaper. (Oh, and no lacing to speak of.) Nonetheless, it did have the strong, very strong cappucinno scent (maybe not as strong as a real cappucino, but strong enough) which blended really well with the standard stout notes I could discern. The feel was light-bodied and very carbonated - none of the creaminess they tout on the bottle I could tell. Tastewise...I liked it. Maybe it's my Cuban upbringing, but it has a nice espresso flavor adding to the tangyness of the stout - it made for a good mix, in my opinion. Overall, it's not a great beer, but as a present from my daughter who is slowly getting into this craft beer craze, it sure hit the mark. (Now all I gotta do is introduce her to some other brewers, and I think she'll be okay...)
