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...)

Dark, reddish-brown body; foamy, light tan head. Fair roasted grain aroma; shallow vanilla notes. Vanilla and cocoa flavors; some biting, somewhat harsh bitterness. Medium-heavy in body; fizzy.

Not bad overall. Some decent roasted and cocoa notes. No perceivable coffee quality except for a mild coffee ground presence. Fair yet forgettable...

Blue Moon cappuccino oatmeal stout.

Blue moon is that big beer that wants you to think it's a craft beer. It is , sorry , not sorry . In lieu of this by no means am I insinuating Blue Moon is bad. It's just not for me . However their seasonal batches always exceed my expectations. Such is the case with their cappuccino oatmeal stout. This is a creamy beer with a bitter finish . The chocolate nodes really shine when its drank cold in a glass.There is almost no head when poured correctly. The oatmeal stands out the more you sip and definitely give it it's rich smoothness.
The coffee really makes it stand out . I don't believe this can work with things other than stouts ,it's rich and very dark brown in color hut still clear. This beer is sweet but that bitter after taste balances the palette. At 5.9% ABV this beer is definitely a 7.5 out of 10

12oz bottle into a tulip appears dark brown in color with a light khaki head that fades quick leaving a thin line of head around the perimeter.

Aroma has a fruited quality about it with faint stale coffee and chocolate. Some earthiness and roast.

Tastes fruity like raison and cola with stale coffee and sweet oats. This feels like a weird version of hard cola or rootbeer moreso than beer.

Medium in body with modest carbonation, its average. Smell is the best part of it.

A very dark brown with a two finger tan head that fades quickly to a ring. Not much for lacing. The beer smells very malty and grainy. I do get some mocha and coffee notes. The flavor has a nice balance of bitter to sweet and the coffee, oatmeal. and chocolate notes come out pretty well. The feel is a little below average carbonation, very dry, and medium thin body. Overall, a decent beer, especially for the price.

A lot of smells, but the taste was bad. Not a wheat, not a cappucino, not a stout, nothing of each. Poured it down the drain.

A really good stout! A smell and taste of coffee that is not overpowering. A good deep coffee smell. Not overly carbonated with a smooth swallow and little to no aftertaste. Overall I like it better than Founders breakfast stout.

12oz 2016 bottle.

A: Pours medium dark brown with light showing through the edges and a quickly fading off white head.

S: Coffee and bready malts, faint spice from the coffee and caramel sweetness, faint chocolate and roast characters.

T: Earthy coffee, some espresso bitterness, bready malts, some caramel sweetness. Again, roast and toasted malt characters are faint.

MF: Medium body with medium carbonation. Balanced bitterness and sweetness.

O: This is an ok beer and drinks easily for a coffee brew. There are better options out there with more fresh coffee and stout character than this beer, this tastes and feels more like a brown ale.
