Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout
Samuel Smith Old Brewery (Tadcaster), Enland
---from bottle to stemmed stout glass---
Pitch black, thin tan cap, good lacing.
Soft roasted malts, chocolate, cappuccino, nuts, oats. Really light on the nose.
Oats take center stage here! Creamy/smooth/sweet oatmeal. Sweet roasted and malted barley. Slight grassy/earthy hops. Hints of bitter chocolate.
Medium body, incredibly creamy, the inside of your mouth will feel as though it is made of silk. Heavy creamy oats at first give way to a smooth crisp finish.
Great! Not overly bitter or sweet… both have their time to shine. The creamiest beer I’ve had.

Poured from 550ml bottle into a Guinness pint glass.
A- Pours pretty dark black, when held to light there is a slight amount coming through on the edges revealing a deep coffee brown. Two finger mocha head.
S- Getting some fruity chocolate notes, maybe a little dried cherry, light dark roast.
T- Similar to aroma, bittersweet chocolate, fruity acidity, light coffee. Finish is a nice lingering bittersweet chocolate.
M- Medium, silky and smooth. Really nice for a 5% beer.
O- This is maybe the best sessionable stout I have come across and I'm glad I can easily find it at my local grocery store, it's even on sale from time to time. I do wish I could find it on tap more though. All of Samuel Smith's dark beers are impressive and I suggest everyone try them at least once. One of the best things about this beer is the mouthfeel, the oatmeal really gives it that silky texture that I love in my dark beers. This is also one of the first beers I had when I was getting in to craft beer, back when I wasn't really into IPAs.
