This is top-of-the-line beer paradise. A thick, hearty, porridge that is somehow as easy to quaff as a light lager. Beautiful to the eye and a delight to the palate, this is as good as it gets people.

A: Very dark brown, with bubbly slightly creamy head that slowly recedes (2/3)
S: Chocolate and raisin dominate with slight smoky notes (10/12)
T: Mild dark chocolate rounds out toward a sweeter, maltier finish, very clean but flavor could be stronger (17/20)
F: Very bubbly, almost soda-esque, leaves mouth quite dry—not quite as creamy as I was expecting from an oatmeal stout (4/5)
O: Very close in style to the other Sam Smith’s I’ve had: they tend toward the drinkable and bubbly, relying on subtlety instead of overpowering (8/10)
41/50
