Thick and delicious. The oatmeal stands out and complements the chocolate very well.

2017 bottle- pours deep black, brown head dissipates quickly to collar of large to fine bubbles. Nose is coffee, cocoa, some barrel and mineral notes . Taste is huge bomb of chocolate followed by mellow whiskey notes, caramel as well. Mouthfeel is creamy, slight soft carb. As a whole really enjoyable, drinking great. Thank you @woemad!

On tap at Imperial on Alberta for their Fremont event.

Black with a dark brown head with good retention and lacing, this looks solid. The nose has dark caramel, toffee, licorice, leather and anise. The anise, licorice and caramel notes dominate the body. A creamy mild coffee with cacao nibs is present. Full in body and softly carbonated, this is excellent.
