novice101 (298) - - FEB 10, 2014
This beer is glorious, so amazing! It pours dark with little to no carbonation at all, small khaki head. Smells of vanilla, coffee, chocolate, toffee everything you could ever want in a beer. Taste is almost like chocolate milk, lots of vanilla and sweetness from bourbon, then a lot of chocolate, followed by coffee. The consistency is also very thick due to the oatmeal.
