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.

This is a beer I could drink too much of if not careful. Very easy to drink, wonderful coffee notes.

good looking stout - very dark with a slight red colour. Aroma of grains, roast malt and coffee. has a very thin palate fora beer claiming to be an oatrmeal stout. taste of dark malt , lots of coffe notes ,burnt fruit with slightly sour aftertaste and a thin mouthfeel. worth buying a bottle if easily available in your area but probably not worth searching for.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 5, 2002
Dark mahogany with a thin tiny bubbled tan head. Steady carbonation. Aroma of grains, roasted malt, light coffee and soap. Thinnish body upfront. Black malt twang and a dry finish. Again, not much depth of flavor besides the black malt and a light coffee aftertaste. Carbonation remains steady. Best before date : 12/02. This is just too thin, especially since they claim it’s an oatmeal stout. The slightest trace of oats is tasted in the finish, along with a sourish note. This is another yawner in my book.

Nice color and head, but too thin tasting. Also, very heavy on the coffee flavor. A tad disappointing.

I put this right even with Samuel Smith’s Oat meal stout. It was very hard for me to decide which one I like better. They’re both different from eachother but overall I like them the same.

A pleasant stout. Not overpowering, and light aftertaste.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2002
Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is heavily malty (milk chocolate, caramel, mild coffee), with mild notes of date, brown sugar, and coriander. Flavor and finish is moderately bitter, lightly sweet. Light to medium body, dry and watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent. Very appetizing (and somewhat misleading) chocolatey malt aroma, but without a thicker body, creamier mouthfeel, and better balanced sweet/bitter character, this doesn’t quite make it into the realm of the greats for me.

A solid stout. Something I could drink many of in one sitting. Or at least that was my first impression. After drinking the bottle, I kinda got tired of it. I wanted to try something new. So, above average but not something I’d want to try again.
