Samuel Smith Old Brewery, (Tadcaster) North Yorkshire, UK
An opaque, wonderfully silky and smooth textured ale with a complex, medium dry palate and bittersweet finish. Brewed with well water (the original well sunk in 1758 is still in use), malted barley, roasted barley, oatmeal, yeast and hops, fermented in open-topped stone Yorkshire squares. Celebrated oatmeal stout is a style benchmark revived by Samuel Smith’s and the inspiration for hundreds of commercial oatmeal stouts.
Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout is black in color. The smell is chocolatey. The taste is surprisingly light, but with a grip to it. It is very drinkable and easy to drink, a good dessert beer.
