Served on a nitro tap at Great Lakes' taproom. The color was black, with a solid, creamy beige head. The smell was oatmeal dry. The taste was a nice oatmeal dryness, with a good malt backing, and some slight bitterness. Mouthfeel was nice and creamy. As for drinkability, the only thing that would be limiting me is the drive back to Pittsburgh.
These brewpub-only beers are why I love heading up to the Great Lakes taproom. A solid oatmeal stout that used the nitro just right, and this wouldn't be bad to release as another seasonal.

Review taken from notes as this was enjoyed by me at the Brewpub back on Thursday 5/15/08.
Another on-tap only "pub exclusive" from GLBC. This beer is a very dark brown color that lets in no light whatsoever. The tan head was a good inch thick when drawn and served to me, eventually settling to a nice ring lining the inside of my glass and a thin surface coating. Malty smells of oats, coffee and chocolate and coffee were surely present. The flavor is also malty sweet with the oatmeal, chocolate, and coffee coming through nicely, rounded out with a bit of hop bitterness. Has a crisp and full bodied mouthfeel with fairly heavy carbonation. Easy to drink in the way that all of GLBC's beers are. Winning!

Appearance: Cocoa brown ruby hue pretty dark brew with a light moccha head leaves speckled lacing all the way down the pint glass. Aroma: Light dusting of cocoa wtih a nutty edge comes across my senses light herbal hop notes are evident along with dark roasts is the oatmeal graininess that is situated nicely in the mix. Taste: Extremely smooth not watery or not flavorful just extremely smooth crosses the palate with a sweet bready tone light cocoa and hints of dark chocolate fluffy creaminess to it all characteristic of a good oatmeal stout finishes with a slight bitterness gives of a leafy flavor works well altogether. Mouthfeel: Light ot medium bodied stout does not sit heavy still packs the flavor of a great dark beer evenly carbonated as stated earlier silky smooth. Drinkability: Very nice session stout, a rarity in today's realm of imperial oak barrel triple wet hopped in your face beers, highly desired another pint masterfully brewed by the folks at Great Lakes.

Draft at GLBC.
Poured a black color with a large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate and coffee aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration.
My expectations where met and is good for style.

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!

On draught at the brewpub. GLBC has a couple great Stouts, namely Blackout (esecially the Barrel-Aged) and Wolfhound. Being a Stout-lover and knowing their track record, I was looking forward to their take on the Sweet Stout. While not disappointed, the beer does fall just a bit short. The beer pours black as pitch with a thick and foamy light tan head and sticky lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate. Creamy with a medium body and roasted character. Flavors of coffee, malt and chocolate are tasty but dont resonate long enough. The finish is dry with a mild bitterness. Good for the style, but I know GLBC could do even better.

After having tasted many of GLBC's offerings I'm beginning to wonder if they are capable of producing a bad beer formula. I had this little beauty on tap at Boston's Bistro in Dayton and what a pleasure it was. Ultra smooth and tasty, it also produced one of the most inviting aromas I've ever experienced from a beer when it warmed to near room temperature. There was something really complex going on that I tried to grasp and I guess my best sense is that it was roasted caramel and just enough hopping to make it like a very light perfume. I had the publican try it and she thought it was very distinct as well. The taste of this little beauty reminded me of Samuel Smith's fine Oatmeal Stout with a better attitude. There was just a better sense of real depth in the flavor than from the venerable SS stout. Nicely tan capped dark brown body that laced through the whole glass. Well done Great Lakes - you've done it again!

I was very suprised to see this on tap at the Corner Slice here in Greensboro last night.Poured into a standard pint glass a deep dark brown with amber highlights,a thinner deep beige colroed head atop.Roast and brown sugar aromas mixed in with lightly sweet chocolate,a little char was in there as well.A full but creamy feel in the mouth made it go down very easy,deeply roasted with some vanilla/caramel flavors along with more bitter chocolate.This was nice oatmeal stout filled with different flavors and a nice creamy feel,I have come to expect kick ass beer from GL.
