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.

CanCrusher (610) - 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 (3539) - 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.

Weefannybaws (93) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - JUL 15, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2012 A superbly dark ale. Roasted barley on the nose. Chocolate, malt and spiciness to taste, with a delicious spiced fruit after-taste. A fine Scottish ale.

AirForceHops (3099) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 31, 2012
500ml bottle. Labeled as “Kinmount Willie” Perfect poor into an English pint. Lush, thick tan head. Spotty retention. Nice looking stout. All aromas are real light. Chocolate malt and light coffee and cream nose. Flavor is an exact copy of the aroma. Mild brown sugar. Texture is creamy with a dry finish. This would be significantly better on cask. Other than a thin body; no problems at all. Can be enjoyable.

JohnRMurdoch (3239) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 13, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 Bottle from Waitrose. Very dark brown (almost black) colour, not much head. Plum aroma. Grassy roasted treacle malt flavour, spicy aftertaste. Drinkable stout but nothing special.

justm (164) - Essex, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2012
Bottle from John Lewis, Norwich. Pours a very dark brown with a touch of rusty red at the edges. The tight tan head initially billows and looks as though it may stay but then collapses in on itself to leave a disc of carbonated foam. There is a sweet malty light milk chocolate aroma. Thin to medium bodied and initially quite drying over the tongue, a sweet and slightly creamy milk chocolate hit has a slightly chalky edge but maintains a tingling lactose sweetness on the palate concentrated towards the back of the mouth. More of the lactose creaminess stays on into the finish. This beer reminds me of the milk gum sweets that I had as a child and I remeber A-level exams, but with a little milk chocolate edge. Very tasty, almost a bed-time stout.

BlackHaddock (3596) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2012
Tall brown 500ml bottle, best before the end of March 2011, drank and reviewed on 18th Jan 2011. Poured into a UK pint, sleeve glass: Very dark body, almost jet black, held up to a light source however the true deep ruby red colour comes through. The head was a rich foaming blanket of tan coloured foam. The aroma was of roasted malts, not a lot of sweetness or hop smells. The taste was all malts, like the smell, fairly dry and with a bitter finish. I thought the body a wee bit thin for a stout and lacking in depth or creaminess. Well carbonated but the flavours in the beer are one dimensional and didn’t excite me at all.

puboflyons (2106) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 27, 2012
From the 500 ml. bottle with a Best By date of Nov 12. The pour is dark brown to rich black with a tremendous foamy head that eventually lets go and simmers down. The aroma is subtle with dark roasted malts and oats. The body is pretty good. The taste is mellow and malty at the start and ends with a pleasing bitter hop character.

reebtogi (4141) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 29, 2012
500ml bottle pours black in color with some red highlights when held to a light source and has a finger of light brown head that retains very well and leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark roasted malts and hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is roasted malty bitterness with some chocolate malty sweetness and a moderate hoppy bitter finish. A little thin on the body for this style, but still a good tasty brew.
