COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark, hardy, thick, rich, roasted and chocolaty, this ale is amazingly smooth due to the generous addition of whole oats. Named for a friend of Iron Springs and easily the finest pedal steel player around, Barry Sless, this one is layered with flavors.

On tap at Iron Springs brewpub during SF Beer Week, what a week! The nitro pour has a deep dark body with lasting mocha head of tight foam. The aroma has some roasted malts, some caramel malts and a good bit of burnt malty notes. The taste delivers dark roasted malts and then moves into a bit of roasted malt astringency as well as burnt malts that border on being sort of ashy. It gets even more burnt into the finish. Big roasty to burnt malt beer here. I like it.

Bomber thanks to Robert. Pours a jet black color with a medium brown head- looks awesome! A sweet nose of roast and char. A nice rich flavor with chocolate, milk, light bitter hops, roast, some metal, very smooth and my kind of beer. Very full flavored and a creamy palate. Awesome.
