Light body and color
I brewed the liquid extract version with the Muntons yeast. The beer was light in body and dark brown in color. Probably needs more steeping of the roasted barley grains. I ended up adding maltodextrin to make the mouth-feel more full. This clone is a bit off target.

Lacks body and fullness
Brewed the extract kit with White Labs yeast. The beer turned out weak. I tried it next to the real thing and it came up way short. It wasn't nearly dark enough and lacked the body of the original. It isn't a bad beer, but it just is not what I expected it to be. I wouldn't brew it again. When I think of a stout I want dark, rich flavors, which this lacks.

This recipe was, by far the best that I have ever tasted. Superior in every way; I can't wait to give this one to my friends and get their opinions! Unlike many other recipes the conditioning in the bottle time of 3 weeks was right on!

Truely a great brew. I agree with the other person's comment about using a blowoff tube instead of the airlock...this batch will ferments and bubbles like crazy. After you bottle it, don't be alarmed if you see some whitish film on the top of the fill lines on the bottles...it's just protein from the oatmeal and it will go away after a few days. I saw this whitish film 3 days after it was bottled and I thought it was ruined and almost started pouring it out. But don't worry...it'll go away. I recommend this recipe to anyone who wants to make an all-around good tasting oatmeal stout.

I used a yeast starter and it had CRAZY fermentation. Painted my ceiling. Use a blowoff tube on this one. It turned out very nice in the end. Highly recommended.

What a fantastic beer! The blow-off tube is completely necessary (you'll understand after a day or two of fermentation). 1 week in primary, 2 in secondary, 3 in the bottle and it was ready to go. Delicious taste, not too carbonated (or least mine wasn't) but just an incrediable beer. Not too chewy or dry like many stouts, one I can't wait to brew again.

I brewed this extract kit back in December 2010, since I really do love the original Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout. Sat in primary for about 11 days, then sat in Secondary for about 2 weeks. It's been bottle conditioning for 5 weeks. I did a side-by-side comparison of my batch vs. an original bottle of SS Oatmeal Stout tonight and it's VERY close. Aromas are almost identical. The only discernible differences that I can tell right now is: my bottled batch has much better head-retention. The head on the original simply goes away in about 3-5 mins, while mine is still there and lacing beautifully. I don't like flat stouts...yuck! Secondly, to the advantage of the original, the original has a lingering bitterness and more coffee taste that mine doesn't have. My finish is a bit weak, but for a clone, it really is a delicious recipe. It needs a bit more punch of coffee taste, which I will alter next time I brew it. Regardless, I highly recommend this kit. It's easy to make - it just takes some patience to let the beer get where it needs to be. It's one of the better stouts that I've made so far, and I'm sure it will get better with time. The flavors really do come out when it warms up a bit, so serve it chilled but not cold and you will be impressed.

I think this was the second or third kit I ever made. It was extremely easy and created an excellent beer. I put 2 Madagascar vanilla beans in the secondary (2 weeks) and bottled with a pint of bourbon. Easily the best beer I have brewed and was a massive hit with my friends. I'm not exactly sure how different this is from the AHS oatmeal stout kit. Might order the AHS one next time to save a couple dollars.
