@ Tyler's (Raleigh)

Black with a tight beige head that reduces to a permanent covering on the surface. Patches of drippy lacing coat the glass. Malty, powdery cocoa aromas greet a significant oatmeal presence, nuts, and some light fruit. Super smooth coffee and chocolate malt, hazelnut, and big time oat flavors. This may, in fact, be the most oat-forward beer I have ever had. Light and drinkable, but with a silky, creamy quality that prevents any notion of wateriness. Very enjoyable!

Serving type: on-tap

Appearance: a nice black stout. opaque and a thin tan head that sticks together pretty well

Smell: roasted malts, graininess, chocolate

Taste: very smooth blend of a roasted malt base and nice sweet chocolate, the oatmeal is a little subtle but plays around in the background nicely

Mouthfeel: nice and light. a very pleasant drinking and smooth stout.

Overall: as all GLBC beers crafted the way the style should be.

Serving type: on-tap

Tap at Duckworths. Cola black pour, layer of tan with some bubbles within. Some minimal lacing.

Aroma, roast malt, milder coffee dark chocolate and milder yet anise.

Taste, definetely some oats upfront, along with a tad bit of peanut and cardboard. Nice light chocolates. Some mineral water. Very light coffee and roast in the finish.

A tad thin, a tad high carbonation, may be more a result of the establishment. Very easy drinker. Session type stout as I imagine it was intended. Not sure where the ratings anywhere near 4 could be coming from.

Great Lakes : Ohio City Oatmeal Stout

Look: Pours a dark opaque brown. Retention ok, off white head. No real lace to speak of, looks fairly simple.

SMELL: Roast, smoke, somewhat meaty. Malty, nutty and chocolatey.

Taste: Coffee, roasted malt, mild vanilla and cocoa. Pronounced oatmeal like flavor. Mild herbal hop character. Agreeable and session able ale, I found that one was not enough and had a second pint. Solid roasty American stout with black malt flavor.

FEEL: Medium bodied, smooth and well carbonated. Oats doing their work here to smooth out the brew.

Overall: A tasty oatmeal stout. One I could easily have a few of. The oatmeal was present in the flavor and could remind the casual drinker of a hearty breakfast.

Serving type: on-tap
