A decent oatmeal stout. Dark and chocolatey. A little licorice, but its more watery than I was expecting. Tried with the parents and Anne in 2017.

Okay creamy barley aroma modest head and good coffee barley flavour but not much layering or interesting things. Drinkable in a pub setting though.

Pours dark brown from the bottle into a glass - small tan head forms and leaves quickly. Aromas of coffee, cereal, slight off notes of earthiness. Decent mouthfeel with solid carbonation, but not great flavours of anything outstanding. A very moderate oatmeal stout.

Nice tan head. Aromas somewhat subdued. Great balance of roasted malt, chocolate, oatmeal, and coffee character. Very creamy and rich on the palate, with pleasant bitterness to balance.

If you’re in need of an unbalanced, watered down oatmeal stout with a great looking bottle you should seek out Howe Sound’s Diamond Head. There will be a large amount of regret free with your purchase in the form of realizing you could have bought 4 Sam Smith Oatmeal Stouts for the price of one of these disappointments.

Nutty aromas with chocolate milk on the nose. Mild malt and a creamy finish. Lightly hopped. Kudos for the closable bottle and being just as good on the second day.

Deep brown, almost black body with a foamy/frothy white tan head. Aroma is sweet with a touch of nut. Taste is sweet but with a bitter nuttiness and oats. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

exeter (538) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2015
Pours a nice black colour with a tan head that hangs around to the bottom. The taste is of light burnt coffee, bitter chocolate, caramel, oats and some earthy hops. Not as smooth as some with that bitter kick, but very nice.
