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 donít 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. Itís only available on tap at the moment. Thereís a good roast to it but a bit too much carbonation. Thereís oats and coffee and a dry finish. It can be tweaked I believe and then it will be absoltely amazing.

Darft at the brewpub. Aroma: Nice roasted grain aroma with a noticeable oat overtone. Hints of coffee and chocolate and roasted nuts. Appearance: Dark brown/light black with a medium tan head. Head was big and creamy with good retention. Fair lacing. Flavor: Nice stout flavor with good roastiness. Again the oats are very noticeable. Coffee, chocolate, and light caramel. A nice smokiness in there, as well. Palate: Medium-light bodied and creamy. Moderate carbonation. Finish was pretty dry with a touch of astringency. Overall: Oatmeal plays a nice role here. Good, solid stout. Perhaps a little higher mouthfeel.

Bottle. A solid oatmeal stout. The beer has a roasted coffee flavor which is not overbearing. It has a slightly sweet, yet not sickenly so, aftertaste, which prevents the beer from appearing as dry as a regular stout could be. This number could be slightly more alcoholic for my taste -- somewhere in the 6.5 to 7 percent range like Troegs Oatmeal Stout -- as the initial flavor leaves a little bite to be desired. I desperately wished that I would have poured this beer into a glass to sufficently capture its aroma.

On Tap @ GLBC 11/23/05: Lasting light beige head on a a dark brown, almost black body. Roasty and toasty @ first, but turns a little bit burnt in aroma as it warms. A little bit woody. Very little fruitiness, and has a lightl toasty oat aroma as it warms. Well balanced and lightly roasty w/ a bit of dark grain sourness throughout. Finish is dry and roasty, but not as dry as a dry stout. Lightly toasted grain flavor as well w/ a lingering light roasty aftertaste. Dry m/f, but not astringent, lighter medium body, medium carb. Good oatmeal stout, but I was thinking it might be a little more full bodied. A very flavorful beer thatís well worth trying if itís on tap there!

On tap at the brewpub - Pours black with a creamy offwhite head. Aroma is sweet, milk chocolate, coffee, and a bit of that nutty oatmeal can be found as well. Flavor is very similar. Sweet yet somewhat bitter as well. Palate is smooth and medium bodied for a stout. Very easy drinking and a fine compliment to the flat iron steak. Nice brew!

This stout is great. The body is not as thick as the major selling stout that everyone knows. And the head needs to hold a little longer. But the body feels great on the palate. The aroma is nutty, coffee, and wheaty. The beer flows down great. And the taste is almost of a nut brown with thick malt and wheat flavors. The beer finishes with a nice bitterness, smoother than the forementioned mass imported stout, and the wheat, malt, and hops really come through in the aftertaste. A great choice to start out the night strong.

As far as oatmeal stouts go, this one was very good. It was fresh draft at the brewery, and it makes a good session beer. At 4.8%, it is soft and flavorful, and able to be drunk all night long. A very drinkable, solid oatmeal stout.
