3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft in my hand at the source. Black with no head. Aroma is burnt sugar, light coffee and dark roasted barely. Flavor is a.duplicate with a lingering sugar sweetness. Lactose without question. Flavor has a low level of roastyness with the correct flavors in style. Very easy to drink if you are not lactose intolerant. Mild creamy texture gives it decent drinkable ability.

Tap at Sidedoor. Deep black, stained glass red corners. Steady creamy beige head. Leans heavily into the oats,, very sweet and lactic. Just hyper sweet, medium body. Certainly a little odd, not as stylistically classic as most GL beers. Sweet sweet stout. This would be a hit on Antigua, but not one I’d go back for more of. Really pushes into new realms of Stout, I’ll give it credit for that.

Draft at Caliente in Pittsburgh. Nicely smooth with lots of bold flavor. Thick as a bowl of oatmeal with a ton of molasses on top. Somewhat arid on the finish.

This one poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of light roast, dark chocolate and nothing else. Flavor was similar, very dry and a bit bland, but clean.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Poured near black with a creamy beige head. The ar oma picked up semi-sweet black and chocolate malts with a touch of vanilla and milk sugar accents. The flavor found sweeter chocolate and vanilla with dry hops around. . A touch buttery toward the end.. very solid for the style. Light-medium bodied with solid carbonation.. very drinkable.

From the 013 Summer Great Lakes brew samnpler I purchased at Remke/Biggs - This is a fine, dark sweet stout, but it seems to be lacking some prescence in its body... still, it’s a good beer, and I like it. However, it is not the best oatmeal stout... no Samwell Smith or Goose Island!
