(on-tap)The aroma has very light hints of oatmeal. You get the common dark black color that comes along with most stouts, and a nice fluffy tan colored head. On the palate is nice flavors of roasted/burnt malt, followed by very light but nice oatmeal sweetness, making the stout very pleasant to drink.
Overall pretty good stuff! Had this at nice hangout called the Black Sheep here in Philly.

I understand that in London, you're either a Fuller's guy or a Young's guy. I guess I'm a Fuller's guy. This is not a bad stout, but it just seems rather thin. It pours a nice tan head, it has a great dark, almost black color, but the smell and flavor are a bit light. If I'm going to drink a Young's stout, I'll have their Double Chocolate Stout.

Full bodied but does not weigh you down like a ton of bricks. The sweetness of the malt is well balanced. I usually think of an oatmeal stout as a beer for winter, but this is a good year-round brew.

The best bottled beer I have ever had. The only beer better is Young's bitter cask conditioned in a London pub. If you love a stout that is smooth and utterly drinkable, than try this exceptional beer. Highest rating!!!
