Very great beer, I always love Samuel smith brews. They are one of the most solid companies around for imports here in the US. I love how they look when you pour into a cup, very bubbly and rich dark color. Smell is always great aswell furkin amazing. So why not grab a sam smiths oatmeal stout from your local store.

Poured from bottle into a Samuel Smith imperial pint glass.

A - Pitch black with a perfect, thin layer of head.

S - Sweet, roasty malts and a hint of cocoa and alcohol.

T - Oats, cocoa, coffee, roasted malts, and just a hint of alcohol. A lot of cocoa in the aftertaste. The oatmeal in this oatmeal stout is very much on display.

M - Very smooth and not heavy at all. This beer is creamy, extremely drinkable, and has the perfect amount of carbonation.

This is just about a perfect oatmeal stout. Very balanced, smooth, and drinkable. Samuel Smith has got to be one of the best bangs for your buck in beer.
