Bottle. The pour was a murky dark brown with a huge (3-4 fingers) light brown frothy head that lasted throughout and had excellent sticky streaks of lacing.
The aroma was mild of a cereal malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of coffee, milk chocolate, molasses and a slight nutty presence.
The taste was sweetly malty with a strong note of chocolate early on and finished about the same with a mild bitter note of coffee towards the end. The flavor lasted an average duration with a nice sweet coffee ending.
Mouthfeel was medium to full in body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation.
Overall a great Sweet Stout that had just a slight mild bitterness to it.

"a budget SS Oatmeal Stout clone! Holy crap...I donít know that i can tell the two apart. they nailed it...so hereís my review for Sam Smiths...only difference is a half point lower for feel. "still the benchmark as far as Oatmeal Stouts are concerned. Iím glad SS no longer does the clear glass bottles...it was hit or miss whether or not your beer would be spoiled, but now itís always great. Perfect nose, great smooth mouthfeel, if a little thin. Roasted everything, highly drinkable." "

Really? Do you just take all your "standard" beers and make them a mild ale of some sort? Come on. I love your fruits and unchained series, but this is shit.

Bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with a tan head and lacing. Toasted malt aroma, with chocolate, coffee, and burnt toast. Taste is sharp, of malt, chocolate, brown sugar, and toast. Lingering sharpness that ends a bit watery. Tasty.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is dark brown with a thin tan head. Pretty high carbonation levels for a stout. Aroma is roast/toasty/slight coffee. Flavor is of chocolate and toast. Well-balanced, nothing amazing but very drinkable and a good session stout.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with fally foamy tan head...huge lacing. Chocolate malt on the nose. Typical stout profile...roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, vanilla. This is a quality stout and I canít say a bad thing about it. Filling but easy drinking.
