Review taken a week ago(late winter 2013)

On tap at Ashland beverage Centre(Ashland, KY.) I didn't see the tap handle, but GLBC usually have some good looking designs. Poured this into a tulip style stout pint glass.

A - basically black. But we will say very dark brown in the light with the darkest of amber edges. Light brown/khaki colored head sits very well on top. Im actually surprised at how fluffy and beautiful it looks. Head lasts a good portion of the experience leaving pretty good stick along the way.

S - Hmm.. Sweetness all over of cocoa and milk chocolate. A real nuttiness to it as well. Nice roasted malt aroma and mild chocolate with brown sugar whiffs.

T - very nice chocolate. Nothing too dark yet nothing too sweet. Just zipping through the middle of both sides. Milk chocolate sweetness with a mild dark chocolate bitterness. Semi sweet brown sugar as well as a GLBC style roastiness. Solid oat and grain backbone with downright powerful nuttiness.

M - this little stout drinks bigger than the abv suggests. It has a smooth, legit medium body that booms with flavor. Coats the mouth nicely and is a ridiculously smooth drinker. I could drink this stuff by the growler yet as rare as it is i think I'll save some for the next mornings breakfast which I did :)

O - idk why GLBC doesn't release a lot more of their stuff in bottles. This is the perfect session stout for the stout lover. Low on abv and big on that black oatmeal flavor. Roastiness reminds me of Fitzgerald as well as texture but the oats and grains say hey, I'm just a sibling. This would be an excellent fall bottle release and I hope to see this brilliant stout again next year. If you can get it you need not think about it. Buy it! It's a very good oatmeal stout

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.

Served in a shaker pint glass at Durty Nellie's.

Gotta jump on every tap-only GLBC offering when you can. Take my word for it. Anyway, this stuff pours a straight obsidian topped by two fingers of light khaki foam. The nose comprises cocoa powder and light roasted malts. The taste brings in more of the same, with everything coming through soft, as though in a child's dream. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a nice little oatmeal stout, nothing special, but something easily drinkable and generally enjoyable.
