Poured in a large snifter a very black with a caramel half inch head which dissapated to a ring. Had a great lacing which hung around. The smell was of dark fruits, yeast, malts. The taste was very creamy, dark chocolate, malts, dark fruits. Very yummy. The mouthfeel was moderate to thick. Overall a great beer. My favorite Oatmeal Stout at the moment. Gets better as it warms. Nice low abv. One could drink a couple of these in a setting.

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.
