COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle; Pasteurised.
Sometimes known as Kinmount Willie Oatmeal Stout in the US.
Brewed to the exacting standards of Robert Younger, great grandfather of the founder of Broughton brewery. This rich stout is bursting with the flavours of roasted barley and black malt. The excellent hop bitterness is offset by the silky mouth feel of oats.
Major ingredients are:-
Optic Pale Ale Malt, Black Malt, Roasted Barley, Pinhead Oats. Hops used are English grown Fuggles, First Gold and Challenger.

wimpyjoe (2967) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Very black stout, no head. Small roasted aroma but with minimum flavour, however it is certainly a drinkable session ale.

DarkSideOfBeer (42) - Padova, ITALY - DEC 19, 2012
Bottiglia. Interpretazione scozzese di una oatmeal stout,color rubino/marrone intenso, retrogusto di caffè e di torrefatto,leggermente troppo frizzante per il genere ma nel complesso buona e beverina

Opaque dark brown beer, short lived tan head. Light palate with mild carbonation. Mild dark malts with traces of coffee and chocolate. Very minerally, leading to a metallic note before the finish.

CanCrusher (511) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown colour with small beige head that dissolves completly. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, dark fruits, coffee. Sweet taste at the start turns into lightly bitter with short finish duration. For the stout, I would expect more densely beer than it is... but it’s OK beer.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - AUG 5, 2012
Hints of autumn aroma. Lovely deep silky smokiness and warmth, peat bogs and the apetite for oat cakes and mackerel. Lovely smooth creamy porridge head. One bottle is not enough.

maxwelldeux (3083) - Everett, Washington, USA - AUG 1, 2012
Pours a very thick and very dark brown with a moderate head to it. Thick and heavy on the palate. Tastes empty - a little bitter without the balance that comes with a lot of stouts.
