I simply love this beer and just drove to three separate liquor stores to find it. It pours a beautiful dark brown color with a tan head that remains on the glass. The taste starts with a roasted flavor and finishes smooth with some caramel notes. I don't find this beer overly sweet at all. It isn't hoppy, but instead is well balanced like any English ale should be. I just drove twenty miles to find this beer and it is so smooth and well worth it. No American beer can match it. In a class by itself. I only wish I had another bottle.

Being a lover of porters and stouts I have tried my share. Samuel Smith oatmeal stout is one of the best stouts I have ever had.

When my mom used to try to shovel down the Quaker stuff I would gag...if only she'd known about Mr. Smith....this is wicked stuff and, without question, one of the finest stouts I've ever tried...big, bold and beautiful...the Irish drink pony pee by comparison!
