Samuel Adams Oatmeal Stout is an English-style Oatmeal Stout brewed by the Boston Beer Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a nonic pint glass from a bottle.

Appearance

The stout pours a clear mahogany hue that shows burgundy at the edges of the glass. The ale is topped by a thick cap of khaki-colored foam that shows good retention. A few patches of lace stick to the glass. A soapy collar and a thin layer of bubbles top the liquid.

Aroma

The aroma is initially quite sweet with dark fruits and chocolate, but as the beer warms, it becomes toasty with roast malt.
