I have had Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout perhaps more than any other beer period. I have always been a fan of dark chocolate and coffee, and this beer provides delicious notes of both. The mouthfeel is silky smooth and it leaves your tongue wanting more. This is the beer that I would be happy with any time of the year paired with anything.

Poured from a 355ml bottle, code is SD25L1 so bottled April 25, 2012.

Dark brown pour but deep red hues appear when held to the light. Very good head, thick and foamy. Aroma is mainly oatmeal but chocolates flakes are also present. Flavor tapers off a bit but retains the oatmeal character though not full-bodied. Bit of burnt smoke hidden in there.

Poured from a 550 ml bottle into a nonic pint glass. No freshness date.

A: Completely black body, no light gets through. Small, light tan head recedes to a thin film of small bubbles on the surface, with a nice ring at the edge of the glass. Decent lacing.

S: Some chocolate, alcohol, malts, and hints of sweetness.

T: A complex mixture of toasted malt flavors, rounding out with vanilla. A slight bitterness follows it down. Has a sweet finish.

M: Full-bodied and creamy. Subdued carbonation. Finish is a touch dry.

O: If you look up oatmeal stout, Noah Webster should have a picture of this beer label next to it. That said, with the rise of breweries offering this style, it is not the best available anymore, but it is certainly one of the originals and for that alone it is worth checking out from time to time.
