Nicely surprised that this beer lived up to the hype. Nice dark brown, almost black color with some nice tan head and some lingering lacing. Smells of dark chocolate, a little coffee and malt. Tastes of coffee, mocha chocolate and caramel. Nice smooth malt backbone. Only very mild hint of bitterness, very smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Small amount of carbonation that’s just right. Nice and light, could definitely see myself drinking multiples of this beer. Will check out other offerings from this brewery.

Poured from a 550 mL bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Pours a dark, dark mahogany brown... nearly black with not much light getting through. Thick foamy tannish head... great retention and lacing.

S: Roasted grains and sugars... sweet... espresso and dark chocolate.

T/F: Follows the nose... dark roast character... burned sugars and coffee. Cocoa present... mildly sweet... smooth and creamy on the mouth. Mild hopping for bitterness. Medium to light bodied.

O: A delicious and super drinkable stout... bittersweet and roasty... and at only 5% ABV makes this is one you can sip or slam. Great beer from a great brewery.

S: Some cocoa, black licorice, some spicy rye bread and rosated malt.

T: Some cocoa, black licorice, special rye, roasted malt and a slight floral hop. Not overwhelming but nicely balanced.

F: Creamy smooth body that is fairly thick.

O: A very nicely balanced restrained oatmeal stout.

This oatmeal stout begins with the sumptuous velvety smell of rye bread, licorice, and clove. Poured into a glass the beer is pitch black plum in color with a short-lived one-finger foam. Creamy and thick, oily and warm in the body, just right carbonation. Mouth is roasted cocoa and rye upfront, followed by some delicate and clean hoppy bitterness. An excellent beer, definitely worth trying. Bravo, Samuel Smith.

Pours deep mahogany brown. Nose is roast and subtle bittersweet chocolate. Flavors follow with a smooth balanced sweetness with hints of nuts and rich chocolate. Really good!
