Review is based off notes taken while on tap at clybourn.

Pours an intense, opaque black with one finger deep chestnut head, which diminished within a minute.

Smell is a lovely melody of barrel, caramel, toasted marshmallow, and booze.

Taste is pretty much spot on to the smell. Big roasted malts, drippy residual caramel sweetness, fluffy marshmallow. Had to give it a tiny ding due to a slightly over the top booziness (which may have subsided by now).

very solid BA oatmeal stout. Perfect blend of all components.
