12oz bottle. Poured a black color with brown edges and an off white head. Chocolate, oaty, and some earthiness.

JPDIPSO (5868) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Near black color with a taller, tight bubbled light tan head. Aromas of grains, earthy hops, cocoa, and roasted malt. Sweet malty start. Bits of grain, and herbal hops. Nice lace. Thinner feel. Finish and linger have some roasted malt bitterness. Solid, but who gets too excited about an Ohio City. 11/15

mrjaxson (514) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 15, 2016
An offbeat oatmeal stout that is indeed dark-colored and light-bodied, but not nearly as roasty and smooth as it looks like it should be. Given Great Lakes other terrific malty choices like Blackout Stout, Edmund Fitzgerald and Oktoberfest, this is disappointing.

shigadeyo (3648) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Fairly standard oatmeal stout; nothing wrong with it, but nothing notable either; a touch thin. Draught sample at Party Town in Florence, KY.

reberiii (498) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Great Lakes Oatmeal. A little bit thinner than I was expecting from a stout with oats. Persistent roast bitter in the finish thats a touch off when super cold. Overall, a nice beer to consume multiples of, but nothing too remarkable. 6, 4, 6, 3, 12

milewide (2130) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Chocolate and coffee aroma and taste...at expense of more natural roast. Very dark brown color. Thinner than my favorite oatmeal stouts.

chucklemation (1505) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Pours a dark brown with a thin white head. Aroma is chocolate, roast, and oat. Flavor is sweet chocolate and oat, with a smaller roast character. Pretty straightforward, yes, but when done this well straightforward is just fine.

NikkTwist (2900) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Draft at the Irish Pol. Dark brown pour with soapy/frothy khaki foam. Dark roasty malts. Burnt cedar. Semi-sweet chocolate. Cold coffee. Nut shells. Molasses. Charcoal. Hitting some of the right notes but lacking in character. Body feels too watery. Easy drinking enough but unexciting.
