4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A world class stout, enjoyed by draft at Maria’s Tap in Bridgeport, Chicago. A very thick brew, with lots of biscuity sweetness and oily, black, and viscous. Delicious full bodied and perfect homage to a wonderful neighborhood in Cleveland.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint on tap at Tap House. Almost-black color, but still clear around the edges. Good, even lace. Lighter body, good smooth lighter carbonation. Easy-drinking. Nice toasty malts, light roast, good hearty oatmeal, light amount of more darker chocolate. Nice sweet taste, but not too sweet. Still a nice bitterness. Good, long oaty lightly chocolatey toasty aftertaste, especially for the lighter ABV. Hint of smoke in the finish, which I really enjoy. Doesn’t have a thick, chewy body like some other oatmeal stouts have, but it’s still a great, drinkable oatmeal stout.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This draft brew from the brew pub poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black brown colored body and a good lacing. The balanced aroma was brown malt and roasted malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The good flavor contained notes of mildly vinous brown malt dark malt hops malt and bread dough. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown in color with a head that gathers around the edges. The aroma is dulled a bit, but I can sense some roasted barley, oats, and chocalate malt. Very smooth and creamy with a short finish. Dry roasted barley flavor balanced by dark chocolate and touch of espresso. Dry finish. Nice, granted I’m finding it hard to drink stouts on 90 degree summer days.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice, but light. More like a Baltic Porter to me than a sweet stout. I didn’t get a lot of those sweet, full milk sugar notes (maltose, lactose, etc) that I associate with this style. Way less chocolate-milk-y than I thought. However, the beer was quite roasty, light and dry. I liked it, it just wasn’t what I was expecting and frankly not as advertised. Body was a red-black, head was decent, aroma was very faint, and flavor as described above.
Not bad, just not terrific. I had this on-site at GLBC in Cleveland.
