2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A dry beer, with chocolate undertones, a bit of fizz and somewhat tart aftertaste. It does pour and look good, but was lighter tasting than I expected. Not much of an aroma either. It makes for a cheap and decent oatmeal stout (under $9 for a 6-pk), but I don’t think Samuel Smith has much to worry about.

Brown pour, small tan head. Not offensive, but nothing of great character. I would distinguish this as a stout for non-stout drinkers. A palatable beer suited for a quick thirst quencher on a hot day. Tastes like a decent stout that was mixed 50/50 with water. Again, not offensive.

Possibly the best beer anywhere in the world. I really like oatmeal stouts, and this beer consistantly is an example of the way to make them right.

Dark. From a bottle. Beige head, creamy. Liked the aroma, chocolate hints. Could be a bit bitterer. That didn’t stop me from drinking several of them in a sitting.
