Poured from a bomber into a pint glass.
A- Jet black with a 2 finger, puffy mocha colored head. The lacing is incredible, leaving nice puffs along the side of the glass. Can't look much better!
S- Roasted malts and dark coffee...and it is intoxicating.
T- Its got this great roasted flavor...the oatmeal adds something beautiful to it. I'm not getting overwhelmed by anything, everything is in perfect harmony...a little coffee, a tad bit of chocolate, and tons of roasted malt goodness.
M- Definitely thick. However, its the good kind of thick...not syrupy, just full of flavor.
D- Oh HELL YEAH. If Sam Smith beers weren't so expensive by the case, I'd bring this to every party I go to. Its the perfect oatmeal stout.

4.2/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 45 degrees Fahrenheit
Appearance: Almost black with little to no tent when put up to the light. Two finger frothy tan head with ton of lacing
Smell: A tart, almost wine-like aroma straight out the fridge, but as it warms it mellows out and I pick up chocolate, oats, toffee, and a hint of roasted malts
Taste: Dark fruits upfront with a chocolate and oat finish. Very slight roasted malt presence
Mouthfeel: Medium body; Smooth as silk with a dry finish
Overall: I had the Taddy Porter and this back to back and find the two very similar, with this having a oat character of course, less dark fruit, and a more pronounced chocolate and toffee character. Both are solid offerings if a little light. However, SS do make some of the smoothest beers I've had. I prefer this over the porter, but ill stick with the imperial stout over both of these for now. Next up is the nut brown ale
