12 fl oz. can, canned on 09/17/2015 printed on the bottom. Acquired the 4pk of this stuff from the local beer store. 'Bourbon Barrel-Aged Oatmeal Cream Stout". No abv listed on the can.

Poured into a Big Eddy snifter glass.

A - Pours a dark cola brown body, appears more black in the glass, a few shades away from opaque. A finger or so of khaki head that dies out to a ring quickly. No real lacing to speak of. Doesn't have the thick black / oil appearance of a good bourbon barrel stout. Looks okay for what it is.

S - Not the traditional aromas of a good bourbon aged stout either: has a strong buttery / artificial cream / vanilla sort of smell. Ashy & burnt smelling. Notes of coffee. None of the good strong characteristics that I would normally associate with a good bourbon aged stout are present.

T - Taste is the same: roasty / ashy / charred, notes of chocolate, coffee, butter, cream. No overt notes of barrel, vanilla, or oak. Not foul or offensive, but not a flavorful or interesting example of the style.

M - The feel is smooth & creamy, actively carbonated. Medium-bodied. Not characteristic of the style.

Overall, a fairly below average example of the style. Not a beer to be sipped or savored, merely drank.
