RATINGS: 2   MEAN: 3.35/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 2.9/5   EST. CALORIES: 180   ABV: 6%
6% ABV, 25 IBU. Brewing with Oats offers up similar challenges to Rye. Use too little and you won’t notice it, use too much and your brew day will come to a slow and sticky halt! But in the right quantities in the right beer, Oatmeal will bring a beautifully rich and creamy texture to your pint. That beer is called Oatmeal Stout. We brew ours with four speciality Malts, and a generous percentage of Oats. To balance out the richness of the Oats, we brew our Oatmeal Stout to a full bodied 6% ABV and ensure there is sufficient hop bitterness and character throughout. The result, we hope you will agree, is a truly luxurious beer. Cheers!

Scopey (11951) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2013
Cask at Hand in Hand, Brighton. It pours black with a medium beige head. The nose is roasty, earth, cocoa, light smoke, liquorice and treacle. The taste is roasted malt, coffee, earth, earth, cocoa, some acidity, toasty and liquorice with a dry, roasty finish. Pretty flavoursome and well-balanced. Good stuff.

MartinT (9191) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Fruit jam, licorice and roasted coffee beans converge in this sweet and lax pint.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-There is no head of foam atop the darkness.
-It is not compelling enough to warrant a second pint.
-The flavour profile is pleasant, but the conditioning could be improved. It felt flaccid compared to the other 2 Kemptown brews.
-A vinous touch appears in the end.
-Malt flavours could be better defined.

On cask at The Hand in Hand, Brighton.
