4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Revolution. Pours a brown color with amber highlights and a small tan head. Coffee, oats, toast, and chocolate are all present in the aroma and flavor, but the nose also has an odd gamey character to it. That really threw me off. Super light in body, with low carbonation and a thin but roasty mouthfeel. A little disappointing, though not bad.

Pour on tap at Crunchy’s dark black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, lots of roast, bitter coffee, slight spice into a bit of oaty, lactose type notes. Taste was a mix of cocoa, roast, and coffee, bitter spice, grassy notes with a touch of dark fruit, finishing slightly roasted, slightly sweet.
