very dark , opaque with a touch of red. nice sustained head. TINOZACCA (146) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2005
very malty but a little sweet, flavour of toasted oats. very smooth with a thick ample palate. Another great beverage from great lakes
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. novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2013
A world class stout, enjoyed by draft at Maria’s Tap in Bridgeport, Chicago. A very thick brew, with lots of biscuity sweetness and oily, black, and viscous. Delicious full bodied and perfect homage to a wonderful neighborhood in Cleveland. naussdollar (1) - York, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2015 does not count
Gonna sound weird but this tastes like Christmas. I consider Guinness to be the gold standard for Stouts and this is one of the closest I’ve tasted. MarkSachon (1056) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2014
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.

Aroma is dark/roasted malts, dark fruit and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is roasted malts, dark fruit, a hint of chocolate and a mix of mild sweetness and acidity in the finish. blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2003
a very nice oatmeal stout. a good flavor and a nice balance. one of the better oatmeals that i've had... fiver29 (1112) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2008
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.
