Appearance: The color is a dark brown with deep red flashes thrown in at the bottom of the glass. There's a soft tan head, and the lingering foam becomes more of a wall than lacing.
Smell: Sweet oatmeal is prominent, with underlying roasted malts.
Taste: Lots of namesake oatmeal, with a tad bit of maple syrup sweetness. Finish is sweet as well, with only a hint of bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy, with a medium body. Just enough carbonation to keep things lively.
Drinkability: Despite lots of flavor and a full body, it doesn't weigh you down at all. An utterly drinkable stout.
Notes: Well, I'm finally getting around to reviewing Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout. It was the first Sam Smith beer I had and the first oatmeal stout I had. It remains my favorite oatmeal stout, and is one of the standouts in Samuel Smith's excellent arsenal of beers. This is considered the quintessential oatmeal stout, and for good reason.
