An awesome BBA oatmeal stout. L: amazing black oil like and perfect head F: the velvety texture really smooth on the tongue T: Amazing bourbon lacing the Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrel flavor is perfectly balances the stout! Flavors of Vanilla are also pronounced and No coffee added but the stout blends very well with the barrel here! S: the Bourbon and vanilla's well balanced flavors come out beautifully !

Overall my top 5 Bourbon Barrel Aged Oatmeal stouts for sure!! Great job #claremontcraftales

A this is what you would expect from a stout. Slightly darker brown head. 3.5
S heavy, heavy bourbon nose. Sweet candied malt and sugar. The barrel is a bit overbearing. My much subtlety here. 3.5
T sweet bourbon up front and on the backend. There's not much nuance in this beer. It's very sweet and very much barrel aged. 3.25
M slippery and thin. Not much going in here. Proper level of carbonation, but overall very thin 3.25
O not very interesting and a bit lopsided in terms of flavor distribution. A bit disappointing. 3.25
