Served in a 22 oz Weizen Glass

Appearance - Dark and rich, slightly bubbly with a nice 2 finger brownish head that stayed the whole way through

Smell - Immediately smelled Oatmeal off the bat. Followed by coffee and some mild hops

Taste - Oatmeal up front, followed by alcohol (not too strong but very present), coffee and very mild hops. Creamy milk and Oatmeal again. Wonderful aftertaste of Oatmeal and chocolate

Mouthfeel - Great mouthfeel. Not too creamy, yet not too carbonated. I really cant say anything else but excellent. Just perfect on the palate

Overall - This beer is amazing. I bought it after I seeing it on the shelf and reading the reviews and I was definitely not disappointed. I bought it in a 1 pt, 2.7 fluid oz bottle and wish I had gotten at least 2 of them. Wonderful taste and mouthfeel. I was sad to see the last sip in the glass. Gonna go pick up a couple of the four-packs tomorrow. Would definitely recommend to anyone who likes or even slightly enjoys a good stout.

I love stouts... This is a nice sweet oaty flavour.. Mouth feel was very full. Sweet dessert stout even though I drank it on a hot day and I was drunk. It happens. Samuel smith has made this beer right. Only a couple other stouts I would take over this one. Bear republics big black and firestone walkers parabola.
