3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rich deep burnt umber...tall couple fingers of tan foam. The nose has lots of chocolate, roasted malt, cola and raisin. The palate is complex and the mouthfeel is silky. Nice smoothness from the oats, roasted chocolate and a touch of dark fruit and bitterness on the late palate. Great example of the style.

A dark color with a two finger tan head. Aroma is toasted malt, some chocolate and oatmeal. Taste is roasted malt and oatmeal. A would have like it even more if alcohol was not present. I might have had a bad bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Barwa: ciemnobrunatna, klarowna.
Piana: obfita, beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, dość trwała.
Zapach: dominują aromaty palonych słodów, gorzka czekolada, kawa, wyczuwalne również melanoidyny, nuty przypieczonego ciasta, w tle suszona śliwka oraz delikatna wędzonka.
Smak: ogólnie dość smukłe, dominują ciemne i palone słody, na pierwszym planie melanoidyny, na drugim delikatna kawa, palona goryczka oraz delikatna kwaskowość od palonych słodów.
Uwagi: piwo bardziej pasuje na porter, zdecydowanie brakuje paloności.

Like it, like it a lot. Great color and taste. Not hoppy. Has a great feel on the tongue, very filling but not that heavy.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark with some bloody reflections and beige medium head. Fine lacing. At first, unusual but pleasant aroma of yeasts and fresh bread, then, while the drink heats up, milked chocolate, toffee, lightly roasted scents . In taste it goes through light sweetness into sweet & slightly bitter finish. A light and nice salty note appears somewhere in the middle (or maybe it is that silky feel?). Medium bodied. I really would call it silky instead of creamy, a very pleasant mouthfeel. Medium-bodied. Smooth and enjoyable.Overall, it tastes very nutritional like a good meal. Oatmeal :)

Bottle from vino but first tasted back in Philly in 2001. Dark dark brown, beige head. Chocolate and coffee nose, fruity. I've always found it a little over carbonated, but really balanced bitterness. Classic.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
First sampled in 1982. Pours a nearly opaque clear dark brown/garnet with a huge light tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and a pleasant sourness. Taste is sweet dark roasted malt, blackstrap molasses, coffee, grain and a mild bitterness brought on by the roasting. A classic.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Samuel Smiths Oatmeal Stout) Bottle 355 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 5%
Pours an almost totally black beer, with a tall and thick light beige head on top. Very good foam retention, heavy lacing left behind as it collapses.
Nice aroma, red stewed fruits, dark fruits too, prunes.
Great taste with chocolate and plenty of it, raisins, sweet caramel and red fruits, light roasted malts on the finish.
Medium body, carbonation a bit low but it fits quite well, slightly dry palate.
