Very underrated imo. Wished it was thicker but still one of my favorite ba oatmeal stouts. More vanilla comes through than chocolate, great bourbon flavor on the finish with no aftertaste. Cant wait to try the variants!

Grunt fill from Albertsons. Dark and oily with fluffy beige head. Dark roast grains, ad expected, for the aroma. Taste is where this picks up the pace. Elements of vanilla, oak, peat and molasses. Slick mouth feel, nice bite at finish

Gerbeer (3412) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 27, 2016
On tap. Pours black with light tan head. Aromas of licorice, oily coffee, vanilla, and roasted malts. Flavors follow same leanings towards oily black coffee. Nothing very assertive though lots of carbonation and a little heat. A good base for adding flavors...
