Mild roasted aroma, pours an opaque black with a full tan head. Mild roasted flavor, with just a hint of chocolate. Full mouthfeel, and full bodied. It’s a bit light on the silkiness I expect on an oatmeal stout though. Overall a solid beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I really wanted to like this. But honestly, it was weak in every department, and it tastes/smells like smokehouse almonds, old books, tire rubber and bug spray. Thin and nothing like an oatmeal stout. I’ll give GLBC the benefit of the doubt solely on this perhaps being an old bottle. But still.

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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

Sampled on tap at the brewhouse. A nicely well crafted brew with a nutty flavor throughout and deep roasted malts. Nicely made brew.
