Appearance is dark and not as thick as some stouts..smells of dark fruit, malt, caramel, possibly some dark fruits oats and whatnot, really good on the nose this brew is..Taste is reminiscent of any other oatmeal stout but the moutfeel is what keeps this beer standing alone. The other beers out there, in my opinion and mostly, yield solidity on the palate, this beer just slides right down, perfectly carbonated, awesome this one is. I enjoy one of these often and will probably continue to do so for some time.
If this is one of those beers that you've seen on the shelf and just have never flocked to it, run up on it. You won't be disappointed.

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.
