Matt's Oatmeal Stout | Chad'z Homebrew Reviews #32

If you subscribe to my homebrew club's channel you might have recently seen the interview I did with Matt Hulihan, the current treasurer of the club. We were drinking this oatmeal stout at the time and I asked him if he'd give me more to review since I liked it so much. My friend Shaun once again stops by to opine on it, too.
