Had a small pout in a flight, but I'm sure I've had it in the past as well. It's a tastier stout, though this pour was a bit maltier than I remembered.

One of my absolute favorite beers. Not another stout that I like more and I make it a point to try as many as I can. If you're looking for a rich stout, you can't beat this oatmeal one. Everything else from Samuel Smith is great too.

From notes 8/1/12: Pours a very deep brown (appears black) with ruby hued edges when held to the light. The pour produces 2+ fingers of variously bubbled frothy, somewhat lasting, mocha head that a moderate coating of lace. Aroma is dark malt notes of chocolate, fig, prune with hints of coffee and anise. Faint hops in the background. Taste is roasted malt notes of Tootsie Roll chocolate, toasted dark bread, molasses, prune, faint smoke with a light bitter character initiating at mid-sip, intensifying in the finish and rapidly diminishing in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium to low-heavy body with low-moderate carbonation, smooth and creamy.

Smooth and well-balanced. Mostly chocolate/coffee flavors up front, with the oatmeal coming in and fading later. Deep, rich brown color, almost opaque.

A: Pours a thick multi-finger head. Color is a very dark, almost black red walnut. Lots of lacing.

S: Malt, chocolate, oats. Very rich, very earthy.

T: Almost no carbonation. Starts off with a slight bitter chocolate, then mellows and sweetens. Finishes dry. Don't really taste the oatmeal. Maybe it contributes to that creaminess.

O: Well made stout, super smooth. It just lacked a little something, maybe not the big smell or flavor I expected.
