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.

From bottle to pint glass. Aroma of strong chocolate. Alcohol present and sweet malt. Opaque with almost no head. Oily, inky color. Taste is oily, moderate low chocolate, alcohol warmth. Husky roast coffee characters. No real oat silkiness. Low carbonation. Finishes semi-dry. A beer that is searching too hard to find itself and is generally lacking.

Really smooth coffee-like taste. Quite sweet. Goes suprisingly well also with sweet and sour Asian dishes.

Backlog of ratings. Thanks to someone at one of bu11zeye’s tastings. The look is brown to block in color, clear, and not much head. The smell is weak, coffee, malts, and toast. The taste is weak, coffee, malts, and oats.
