I understand that in London, you're either a Fuller's guy or a Young's guy. I guess I'm a Fuller's guy. This is not a bad stout, but it just seems rather thin. It pours a nice tan head, it has a great dark, almost black color, but the smell and flavor are a bit light. If I'm going to drink a Young's stout, I'll have their Double Chocolate Stout.

Full bodied but does not weigh you down like a ton of bricks. The sweetness of the malt is well balanced. I usually think of an oatmeal stout as a beer for winter, but this is a good year-round brew.

The best bottled beer I have ever had. The only beer better is Young's bitter cask conditioned in a London pub. If you love a stout that is smooth and utterly drinkable, than try this exceptional beer. Highest rating!!!
