A: Creamy black with a tan head. I can smell it from here!

S: Oats, chocolate, English malt, toffee.

T: Oh man this is so good. For a low ABV beer this is just awesome. Oats, chocolate, toffee, caramel, raisins, milk, cream, sugar, licorice, cinnamon, bread, yeast, and finally brown sugar. The taste of this beer is superb.

M: Creamy and full like a bowl of oatmeal. Slick and velvety with just a touch of dryness. The mouth on this is also superb.

O: Damn! Sam Smith's Oat Stout is beyond great. This is probably my favorite oatmeal stout thus far. It has an extremely flavorful taste and an awesome mouth feel. For this price, especially, it is more than worth your money. Try it.

Pours a dark brown color with ruby edges. There are two big fingers of beige head that enjoy good retention and leave a slight film of lace behind. Mild roasted notes are present in the nose. The body is hearty and the mouthfeel is smooth. The flavor has a slight roastiness to it with a mild roasted bitter finish.

This is a classic brew. It is solid, but I’m afraid not remarkable.
