i really must get more young's. i've only tried a few of their beers, and i have not been disappointed. this is my first oatmeal stout. i like it, but it's still hard for me to tell a difference between this and other types of stout.
poured from an attractive bottle into my only pint glass, young's oatmeal stout is one good-looking beer. black as night with a big, wonderful tan head that lasts a long time, lots of lacing.
first smell gives me almost nothing. certainly smells like a stout, but it's a bit weak straight out of the fridge. definitely give this some time to warm up. the taste can best be described as nice and balanced. like the smell, the taste is subtle. i get the toasty roasted malt, hint of bitter coffee flavors expected from any stout. nothing remarkable there, but the balance and mouthfeel are awesome. near perfection, not too sweet, just enough bitter. big and smooth, so easy to drink. and at 5.2% this gets extra points for being very sessionable.
