UPDATED: FEB 24, 2003 Deep dark and creamy pour. The creamy head faded far to fast. A nice aroma of chocolate and coffee.
Slightly sweet, medium body, creamy texture. Very light alchoholic finish. Great balance. Very nice brew! TheBelgian (24) - USA - FEB 18, 2003
dark with a good head on it. not very creamy. buttery and bitter with not much after taste. FezMonkey (268) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 17, 2003
wonderful dark colored beer with a thick slowly dissipating head. Bitter & sweet taste with mild aftertaste. My first & not last oatmeal stout DOdubble (92) - UVA, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2003
Unpleasant aroma. Very dark color. Flavor was kinda sweet, slightly bitter, and it felt slightly creamy in the mouth. I dont think these kinds of beers are for me. Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - FEB 15, 2003
Dark brown colour, nice pale brown head. Disappointing aroma, but the taste is wonderful, with a bittersweet complexity. Another great beer from Samuel Smiths!

Sweeter than normal, I like it! A slight metalic taste, but I'm thinking that was just this bottle. Incarpathia (21) - Edmonds, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2003
A very enjoyable oatmeal stout. THe Samuel Smith Old Brewery does not disappoint with this brew. One of the best available here in the NW! beerbumble (42) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 12, 2003
Great looking and tasting beer. Tastes like it has more alcohol than it really does. Awsome beer. DukeofYork (44) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2003
Perfect (I mean perfect - creamy, lacy) fluffy brown head. Dark but not opaque.
Sweet, roasty malt notes in nose. Smooooooooth as silk ... rich roast, sweetness, a little bitterness on the finish (barely). You could drink several litres of this stuff without much fuss. Divine. If only this was available in place of Guinness! WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2003 A very nice stout, and certainly a staple of the stout diet, being easily found. Not TOO sweet, and less emphasis on the coffee/chocolate flavors in a sweet stout is a nice change of pace.
