Great Lakes Ohio City Oatmeal Stout

Great Lakes Ohio City Oatmeal Stout. Great Lakes Brewing, Cleveland, Ohio. 5.4% ABV. 25 IBU.

Fully black, decent cocoa-tinged head atop, slims down certainly.

Beautiful roasted malt nose. Lots of coffee in there, some chocolate beneath, a little toast and a touch of sweetness.

In the mouth: Nice, smooth, full-bodied and flavor. A delightful drinker of a stout. Carries all the hallmarks of a good, ol' oater. Flavorful but silky and creamy and a damned fine session-er. I like this the more and the more that I drink it.

Nothing I love better than a good ol' oatmeal stout. And this is one of them. Go drink it.

Postal Script: This is clearly a winter themed beer, and we are now solidly in spring. They are a few more of these still in the fridge, that I have got to get to very soon, before it becomes completely embarrassing. No judgement, bitter ones.
