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.

Bottle pour at the pre-FWIBF bottle share held at the Adelaide Inn in Paso Robles, CA.
Thanks to Oneinchaway for sharing this one.
Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, toasted oat, cocoa, brown sugar, marshmallow, vanilla, and bourbon aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, vanilla, marshmallow, and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with nice barrel aged and marshmallow qualities all around.
