4/5  rDev -4.3%

4.5/5  rDev +7.7%

Poured from a pint bottle into a tumbler on 03.01.14.

A: Opaque dark black. Tan head.

S: Caramel. Roasty too. It smells like a dessert.

T: Follows the nose but with milk chocolate too.

M: Creamy smooth.

O: This one is a touch less smooth than Samuel Smith's excellent Oatmeal Stout. It's still very smooth, though. It's not overly roasty like some porters and stouts. The sweetness doesn't get out of hand, either. This is an incredibly well balanced porter.
