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.

03/03 0.5 l bottle courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks for sharing! It poured dark brown, almost black body with small brown head. Fine coffee, wood, caramel and peat (even smoked meat) scents perspire from the glass. Similar very fine flavor, except mentioned things showed up some chocolate as well. Balanced between sour and sweet, in yet thinner body, it had sourish coffee and smoked finish. This nice brew made me like the brewery for the beer itself, after I was first attracted with nice labels, well, what can I do when I like Oatmeal Stouts!

Marko (4798) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 3, 2010
Bottle from beershop.hr, shared with heavy
Poured an extremely dark brown body with a small off white head. The nose is dominated by coffeeish maltiness that’s quite nice, slightly smokey and meaty. More of the same and I’m not complaining, light tasty roasty maltiness with notes of smoked meat, slightly yoghurty, slightly acidic near the end. Drinkable and likable ’nuff.

douglas88 (8177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 29, 2009
500 ml bottle. I thought this tasted a bit ’old’ and to my surprise the neck reveals best by December 2004! So five years beyond then I drink this tasty beer. A pure black pour with a thick white head and lacing down the glass. The aroma is mostly chocolates, a sour roasted aroma as well. The flavor is easygoing; a mix between a sour roasted malt. chocolate, light fruity hops. Probably a bit different than a fresh one, but still nice. The mouthfeel was a bit thin. Overall, nice.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2009
Powerful deep dark nose. Pours dark brown with a disappearing head. Flavour is gentle at first but develops well with some coffee, chocolate and asparagus (weirdly). Mouthfeel a little watery but pleasant enough. A nice little stout.

jgb9348 (5565) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2009
Deep brown coloured body with a thinnish tan head and a nice bit of oily lace on the side of the glass. Aroma of nice mellow malt, caramel, nuts, marshmallows and even some soap. Medium-bodied; Sweet mellow flavour with a subtle nuttiness tucked in with the malt and a touch of effervescent alcohol flavours. Aftertaste is mild considering the style, but the ABV makes sense with this - very light in all senses. Overall, a good light sweet stout - much more mild than most other Oatmeals - but good to try. While I can get it here stateside, this 50 cL bottle was purchased at McHughes Off-License in Killbarrack, Dublin, Ireland on 20-February-2009, sampled on the other side of the sea at home in Washington on 28-April-2009 when the Capitals advance to the 2nd round of the NHL Playoffs!
