Great Lakes Ohio City Oatmeal Stout - Great Lakes Brewing Co. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this brew's head is three fingers thick and eggshell brown, with solid lacing, and an extremely dark brown body.

Smells like full, yet mild roasted malts. Also get a whiff of oatmeal.

I taste caramelized/roasted malts tamed by perhaps the oatmeal. Not much coffee or chocolate, but they do appear mid-palate. Also a very small tartness at the end. Very well done execution.

The mouthfeel here is smooth and clean.

Overall, I'll give Great Lakes Ohio City Oatmeal Stout - Great Lakes Brewing Co. a 4.75. This is a very sessionable stout and could probably get skeptics into this style. I'll definitely grab this again.

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.
