So for beer 401, and the first beer I've reviewed after they've implemented this new rating system (which I highly disapprove of), I'll actually be writing something. This one was poured from a bomber, served in a tulip. Purchased at the Hopshop in State College, PA.

A- Pretty much black, with just a small cap of dense brown foam that sort of resembles a head.

S- Tons of barrel, but it's not overpowering, as the oatmeal and other base beer aromas emerge.

T- As with the nose, I noticed the barrel first: whiskey and vanilla. The more I have, the more the oatmeal comes out. Milk chocolate even makes an appearance. Really nice!

M- Full feel, silky smooth... nothing harsh about this BA RIS.

O- The oatmeal really makes this beer. Very tasty, although I don't think I will revisit this at this price point of $17.
