COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Since we heard that doctorís used to advise recovering athletes to drink Stout, we just had to develop our own remedy recipe! Our newest beer idea is based on Stoutís history of being a ístrongí beer. To reflect this, the oatmeal Stoutís taste itself is dark and velvety with a defined roasted flavour. Available in cask and both 330ml and 500ml bottles, throughout the range youíll find a selection of two label designs, a grey and a cream to lighten up our Notting Hill ale range.

Iíll be having more of this. Right down the middle of what an oatmeal stout should be. Strong but not an imperial stout. Sweet with tastes of chocolate, coffee and caramel from malt. Not a lot of taste coming from the hops (ok maybe that could be the only weakness but then again this matches a traditional stout). Well done.

tdtm82 (1200) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Bottled; rated at home; 1st May 2015. Opaque with baige lacing. It kinda shot out of the glass a bit so I hope itís not too bad a bottle. Head retention is excellent. No faults there. Aroma is chocolate chip cookies; burnt oak; cold espresso cream; spruce pine; grains and leather. Taste is leather; velvet; backcurrants; chocolate cookies; some sugar residue and clotted cream and cold espresso. Itís a nice example of a stout. I enjoyed this one.

sic1314 (4776) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2015
Poured deep dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of roast malt, dark fruit, coffee grinds and chocolate. Light body, flavour is much as the aroma. Not bad for the low ABV.

ladnewton (1614) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2015
Cask at Craft Beer Co, Covent Garden on 25th January 2015. Sepia-black with pale tan foam and chunky lacing. Rich and intense roasty aroma with coffee notes. Intense roastiness in-mouth with coffee flavours and spicy touch. Finish rather sweeter, with caramel roasty malts. Fair amount of body and an engaging texture. Well-crafted stout.

jc1762 (222) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 3, 2015
Cask in a shaker glass showing completely opaque black and a full body. The nose showed a lot of chocolate and roast malts. The palate was medium bodied with a lot roast malt flavor and a slight coffee-like tartness. The finish was a dark chocolate bitterness. Overall, a nice cask stout.

Bottle from Oddbins. Appearance - opaque black with a lovely fawn crema head. There are some red chinks around the side of the glass. Nose - chocolate and generally roasty. Taste - more roast and dark chocolate. Dry malt slightly heading down the liquorice route. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry malty finish. Overall - yes enjoyable.

mike_77 (3926) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2014
Black with this soapy, coffee coloured head. Some toasty, smokey elements in the aroma. Also some grassy hops. Flavour has a fair whack of bitter coffee and some cocoa too. Bitter and somewhat metallic aftertaste.

Scopey (8999) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Cask at the Rake. It pours jet black with a small tan head. The nose is rich roast, charcoal, cocoa, cola coffee and treacle. The taste is bitter, rich roast, coffee, citrus peel, earth, treacle, charred wood, molasses, burnt brown sugar, with a lingering dry-bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty damn bitter, which almost pushes it into the bipa territory. Rather tasty stuff.

stravale (2495) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from Ales By Mail [200814]
Black, dense frothy tan head, some lacing
Aroma of mellow roast, dark malts, touch of savoury malts, dab of dark chocolate
Taste of dark malts, dark chocolate, coffee, mellow roast, slight savoury malts, soft bitter roast, smooth dark malts, really good
Palate - soft carb, light to medium body, smooth texture, chocolate dark malts coat the tongue, bit thin though. Finish of soft roast, dark chocolate, some lingering dark fruity chocolate
Overall - Good stout, think this would be even better on cask
