12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L---Completely opaque, dark brown. A big thick, light brown head fades to a coating. Leaves very nice lacing.

S---Nose is roasty malts, chocolate and a touch of coffee. Mild, but very nice.

T---Not getting any oatmeal, but that's neither here nor there. Chocolate, dark fruit (plum, prune). Just a light touch of coffee, not as much as in the nose, though.

F---Nicely carbonated. Makes it feel lighter than it otherwise would. I actually wish it was a bit thicker/fuller.

O---Excellent beer. I don't know that I'd drink six on a warm summer day, but it's not summer, so I'll just love it for what it is.

No better way to spend a chilly winter afternoon of watching the world’s oldest sport than with a fine stout. River Horse’s Oatmeal Milk Stout fills the bill on so many levels— velvety smooth mouthfeel, milk chocolate, grains and coffee in the nose on on the palate, black as night with a big tawny head, this stout is so good, it could serve as breakfast eight days a week. It’s only 6.7% ABV, which means you can have more than one with your eggs and toast. I used to think Lancaster Milk Stout was the King of the Hill in this style, but River Horse Oatmeal Milk Stout has dethroned it in my book. Even better, it’s a Jersey Beer. While we still have some chilly nights coming, do yourself a big favor and warm your cockles with a Milk stout that is a damned fine example of the style.

River Horse Oatmeal Milk Stout is a delightful way to end my day. It's dark, sturdy, and has a rich, silky mouthfeel. Starts with a nice, deep tan head over a very dark body, so dark the light barely penetrates it. You end up with a minor amount of lacing, the head dissipates very quickly. Smells of dark sweetness, some caramel and some fruit, which also comes out in the flavors on tasting. Vanilla, chocolate, raisin, perhaps a mite plummy, too. Maybe a little more sweet than it needs to be, but not by much. If I can find this at the beer market again, I will surely drink this again!

It's a nice milk stout and real smooth. Dark malts and oatmeal smoothness dominates and I can't name the hops used. The yeast profile is spot on and works well with the malt profile. Very nice Oatmeal Milk Stout.

Pours a dark brown color, almost black, with khaki colored head. Chocolate, roasted malt, and just a little sweet vanilla-like notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium to full bodied. Finishes very smooth, with plenty of cocoa and roast.

Solid black color. Chocolate,malt coffee, and slight grain aroma. It is well balanced,thick yet not too heavy and the alcohol can be noticed but not overpowering. It feels,smells,and tastes like a nice stout that is a good example of this style
