Delicious! Pours a thick brown head. Incredible smooth roasted malt. Well balanced. Oatmeal, part of a well-balanced breakfast! OriginalCheeser (32) - USA - JAN 22, 2003
Little sweeter than i like but teh flavor is far from boring. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2003
An Oatmeal raisin cookie recipe in a bottle. I love this stuff, and would be more than happy to drink it all the time. Has the appearance of a coffee liquer, with a bit of a malty coffee taste, but smooth right up till the end. Fulkrum78 (175) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 19, 2003
damn fine beer. had forgotten how much I liked it. Smooth beer, wonderful flavor, nice head. Would drink again in a heartbeat. Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 18, 2003
Dense dark body with creamy tan head. Complex layering of flavors, but burnt coffee and dark chocolate dominate. Not too thick, smooth with a malty finish. Very good.

Sam Smith's was not an enjoyable beer for me. The sample which I had was soupy and thick. It tasted like a beer which had been sitting for a good deal of time. I didn't enjoy this one at all. Verne (263) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2003

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2005 Now THAT is what a sweet stout is supposed to taste like. I have found the sweet nectar of life here. Aroma is of roastiness, dough, gingerbread, malt, chocolate and dark fruit. The pour is black as night...with a thinly creamy dark tannish head gracing its presence on my glass and coating it with a thin reminder of lacing to remember this glorious event. The taste is magnificent....a beautiful blend of roasts with a mild fruity and ever so slightly bitter finish. The carbonation is practically non-apparent here, and i dont feel as if im chewing my drink down..sometimes a definite plus. The aftertaste is definitely smokey with chocolate and plum residue apparent and a heavy helping of malty dryness. For a stout that is such a staple around the household, this sure took me a while to get my hands on it..but let me tell you i will never let go!!! Sawicz (9) - USA - JAN 16, 2003 does not count
One of the best beers I've been able to taste. It's too bad it's so hard to find. ConiseurofBeer (242) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2003
Complex nose. Good course head. Smooth, Sweet choclatety taste. A little too sweet for my liking, but overall a great beer.
