UPDATED: JAN 15, 2010 Growler brought back by BeerBelcher. Darkest brown pour with a thick beige head. Creamy and roasty malt aroma with a bit of metal and notes of chocolate. Flavor is also creamy and roasty malt with a chocolate finish. Not bad, but doesn’t live up to their other stouts in terms of body and full flavor.

"A stout that drinks much bigger than it’s abv implies, I enjoyed an imperial pint at the brewpub on a sunny winter afternoon. Roasted malt aroma coupled with mild chocolate. Jet black pour with a huge, creamy head and very nice lacing. Filling and hearty, the body is malty, sweet and creamy. Lots of chocolate and burnt malt flavors with a big nuttiness and very mild hop presence. Close to Young’s Double Chocolate Stout all around, a great pub only offering."

Growler, poured a dark brown, bordering black with a thin deep tan head. Roasted grain aromas, some chocolate and lots of coffee. Up front roasted barley flavor, that is very pleasant, followed by a very oat-ey aftertaste. The oats give it a nice slick mouthfeel, but overall is a fairly restrainted beer, good, but forgettable.

16oz pint at the brewery. Black with a thin head. Nice burnt and roasted malt aroma with a touch of baker’s chocolate. Full roasted grain flavor with a touch of chocolate. Very drinkable. Creamy mouth feel that is on the watery side but all in all adds to the experience. Quite nice.

Tmoney99 (10099) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Draft at brewpub. Poured a black color with a medium off-white creamy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium toasted chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Medium roasted bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew.

Growler pours pitch black with a tan head. Has a nice roasty smell with some raosty malts mixed in. Has a light mouthfeel that I wish was a little heavier. The flavors that this beer has is what makes it. It is very chocolatey upfront with a smooth roasted malt flavor on the back side. It has some sweetness mixed in. Overall this is a solid beer that would be a regular in my fridge if they offered it in bottles. This is a great beer.

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 don’t resonate long enough. The finish is dry with a mild bitterness. Good for the style, but I know GLBC could do even better.

As a big fan of the Sam Smiths, I felt underwhelmed with this brew. It’s only available on tap at the moment. There’s a good roast to it but a bit too much carbonation. There’s oats and coffee and a dry finish. It can be tweaked I believe and then it will be absoltely amazing.
