To quote the bottle: "When you were a little kid, what was better than oatmeal cookies and milk? Well, that's why we made this one for the "big" kids. Oatmeal Milk Stout. All of the fun of being a kid, none of the homework."

These days, I eat my oatmeal cookies with coffee. I'm mostly not into replicating tastes from my childhood, as my palate has evolved. (Interestingly enough, my favorite animal since childhood is hippopotamus, or river horse, which makes me really want to like this brewery.) That being said, I enjoyed this beer. Not too sweet; a little nutty. I didn't get oatmeal cookies, though. Maybe if there were brown sugar notes...

One of the more impressive offerings from River Horse.
