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

Thank you, Alex, for getting me this beer. I am very pleased to have this beer in my possession. Poured into a tulip glass. A one finger head that has ok retention and no lacing on the glass. The color of the head is dark tan creamy and foamy. The color of the beer is dark brown to black and the clarity of the beer is opaque. Some carbonation bubble is visible on the glass.
A dark roast malt, toffee, mild coffee, milk chocolate, cereal, touch of fruitiness, grainy, and subtle hop aroma with some earthy, wood, and citrus.
Dark roasted malt, coffee, toffee, molasses, milk chocolate, cereal/grainy, fruitiness, earthy, resin, and some citrus.
The body of the beer is medium, the mouthfeel is medium with a touch of chewiness, the carbonation is also medium, and the finish is medium plus.
I really like the flavor of the beer, a typical oatmeal stout; however, the beer has a porter body style. I would have like to see a bit more body to the beer and more chewiness. Overall good beer and I am enjoying it very much.

A chocalte style candy like stout. Rich in color and bold head. sweet in flavor and smell. Comes across a little bigger than its 6.7% would state. Worth a try for a miild of the road stout.
