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.
