A- pours black. dark khaki head with retention and lacing

S- chocolate, roasted malts. Some coffee, rich and complex. Some dark fruits in there.

M- excellent carbonation for the style. Smooth thick but not overpowering. Silky but not milky

T- sweet malts. Its roasty, its chocolatey. But it has some bitterness. Its bold and it stands out.

O- the celebrated. Its perfection. One of the best oatmeal stouts i have ever had.

This Oatmeal Stout had a lightly thickened consistency and a black coloring. The head was thin and fizzy and lacked the creaminess I'd hoped for.

The scent is of sweet chocolate malts and some earthy notes. An interesting bock-like character is present in the nose with a strong barley scent.

The taste is malty and sweet with a bit of prune or date. A touch of chocolate, caramel and molasses stand out in a very smooth easy finish. Very well crafted I'm impressed by Samuel Smith again.
