I was quite excited to try Young's Oatmeal Stout considering it's spoken of highly. It stands up to my favorite oatmeal stout, Samuel Smiths, but i have misgivings.
It looks very nice in the glass. Good, solid, lasting, tan head.
Smells tasty as can be. Sweet and somewhat smokey.
Tastes like a sweet, chocolatey treat...until it gets closer to room temperature. At that point an unpleasant saltiness kicks in (wherein lies my misgivings).
Feels creamy and smooth, except when it gets warmer and a souring effect takes place.
Good and drinkable, except when reaches room temp.
I'll try this one again and drink it right next time!
