A: solid black stout with creamy tan head

S: there is an oati-ness among the dark malt smells of roasted espresso

T: dark malts, bitter, some sweeter, chewier oat flavors; espresso, bittersweet chocolate

M: not too heavy - reminded me of an English Porter in density, but with a milky smoothness attributed to the oatmeal

O: Sam Smith has 3 beers you have to try at some point and this is one - it is the defining oatmeal stout - dry, bitter, smooth, slightly sweet and refined
