Pours a deep brown color, barely any color when I hold it up to light. Head is light tan. Stands about 1/2inch tall after the pour and settles to a thick film. As I drink there are nice rings of lacing left in my glass. Smell is of raisins, roasted malts, maybe a little vanilla. Taste is sweeter than expected. At first the raisin stood out, but as the beer warms I get more of the roasted flavor. Body is med-thick with gentle carbonation. I haven't had many oatmeal stouts, but I rather enjoy this one. I understand why it scores so well. Also, I appreciate a beer with a reasonable ABV like this one.

Deep brown with a black appearance. Extra thick mocha colored head with decent retention. Aroma emits lots of oat, bread, milk chocolate and vanilla bean. Mildly bittersweet dark chocolate, roasted malt, oatmeal and dates on the initial sip. A lot of fruity tastes follow into the body, rounding off with some notes of dark espresso, more chocolate, and dark rye bread. Lightly carbonated with a creamy, rich, bittersweet overall body. A good example of what an oatmeal stout ought to be.

Pours a dark brown with a light brown foamy head which stays around for a while.

Smells really nice malty with a definite smell of treacle and slight hops.

Tastes bready and again the treacle adds a slight heaviness to it. I can also taste oats and roasted coffee.

This is very smooth and creamy with a slight amount of carbonation.

This is a very enjoyable beer and considering it's imported from England it's a reasonable price as well.
