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!

Pours a dark brown color with a foamy tan head that lasts quite a while. Aroma is cocoa and oats. Tastes of cocoa and coffee. Smooth and creamy. Good mouth feel.

Poured from 12oz can into my Eskimo Joe’s mug.

Appearance: medium brown hue with a moderate haze and two fingers of frothy tan foam.

Smell: rich chocolatey aroma with a nice malt backbone. I dig it.

Taste: malty with a nice chocolatey flavor and a relatively high sweetness. A good if not exceptional sweet stout.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: a pretty good milk stout. On the sweet side, but that’s not unexpected in the style.

From a can from a sassy waitress at Farely's in Londsborg, Kansas. Pours almost black. Tastes super toasty, like coffee more than like nuts. Somehow light at the same time. Paired well with the Lingonberrry Habenero sauce on the Mone Cristo.

Found this in my cellar while looking for other beers, date read 2018, so 4 years down there. Held up pretty well for a 5% ABV stout!
Poured a very optimistic black topped by a light brown head that forced me to pour twice.
The aroma was mild to my chemical damaged sniffer, but I did get some roasted malts and either scorched black coffee or some hops didn't age well. Overall though, it's pretty good.
The taste; I seem to recall drinking this fresh and being underwhelmed; either this has gotten better (Hops harshness faded or my tastes have changed) Got the roasted malts and bakers cocoa, some coffee, not much in the way of cream, but not bitter either.
The feel was pretty spot on for a low abv oatmeal stout. It was actually the second best thing about this beer for me.

Bottom of can said drink by 7/29/18, so it is well past its date. Pours a pitch black color with a thick foamy head. Head retention is mild. Lacing is good. Aroma of slightly roasted malts, oatmeal and coffee. Very light on the taste but still pleasing. The roasted malts stick out more. Some coffee bitterness on the end. There is also a little sweeter oatmeal.

This beer literally burned my mouth. It tingled my jaw in a way that I didn't know was possible until I took a swig of this.

It looks really nice and smooth. It has a great color like a rich dark chocolate. But appearance is the only thing it has going for it in my opinion.

The smell made my nose crinkle and my stomach churn. The taste made me gag. And the feel, well let's just say I would rather be tazed than have to drink this beer again. That tingling in my mouth still won't go away.

Overall, this beer is Not for me. I tried it. I did not like it. I am thankful I never have to taste it again. For all of you out there who like this stuff, more power to ya because y'all have mouths and stomachs of steel.

Poured from can to snifter glass. Look is black with nice 1 inch head of foam, takes over 30 seconds to come down to a quarter inch. Smell is malty. Taste is sweet and a bit chocolaty and vanilla with mild alcohol taste. Feel is light but taste lingers. Overall a pretty good sweet stout.

L- Huge tan head. Dark, dark, brown color.
S-Immediate oatmeal, coffee, chocolate and nougat. Roasted malts and oats.
T- Slightly sweet, extremely creamy oatmeal flavor, chocolate undertone, roasts nougat flavor, slight bitter bite. It's under-toned in the best way. Very refreshing and rewarding with each sip.
F- Surprisingly light and fresh.
O-Exceptional milk stout. Think it might be the best I've had in a long time. Absolutely delicious. There isn't a single mistake with this beer. If you're a connoisseur you'll enjoy this beer, if you're a beginner you'll enjoy this beer too.

Surprisingly balanced, smooth stout that wasn’t as sweet as I expected. Nice dark brown color with some lingering head and lacing. Smells of coffee, caramel and malt. Tastes of nice roast coffee, caramel, vanilla, grain, malt, toffee and a little oatmeal. Smooth mouthfeel and not bitter at all. Decent carbonation. Slightly dry and not too sweet, which is very refreshing as I usually associate this type of flavor profile with the sweeter, heavier stouts.
