Originally a drink for lactating mothers, oatmeal stout was described as nutritional on early labels. Oats are in the same family as barley, and a small addition yields great flavor. Popular in the late 1800’s, the last oatmeal stout was brewed before the First World War until Samuel Smith reintroduced this style in 1980.

Almost opaque, with an unusually silky texture and complex, medium-dry velvet palate. Bittersweet finish.

Poured from a bottle. Pours a dark brown with a big fluffy tan head and plenty of lacing. Faint aroma of dark malts. Medium body, not very thick. Very smooth and creamy with a slightly malty taste. Flavors are not very prominent. OK, but pretty plain and unremarkable.

Originally rated on 8/5/08. My first try at an oatmeal stout, i like oatmeal, and stouts, it sounded like an intriguing combination. It had a black body with a thin tan head. aroma of roasted malts, and coffee. Flavor also had the roasted malt, coffee and brown sugar, not any oatmeal to speak of however. Mouthfeel was creamy and was very smooth, with a sweet aftertaste. I will definatley give this another try

En god smag af noget ala lakrids, har en let humlet smag, og en lettere røget eftersmag. En god øl der kan drikkes både til mad, men er faktisk også rigtig god alene.

anstei (874) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle, from Wittich web shop. Dark roasty aroma, not particularly defined, but nice. Beautiful dark brown color. Some oats on the tongue, but not so much actually. Good roast and quite a bit of content considering the ABV. Still quite light and easy. Some BA notes?

Very dark and with a eleganbt beige head of very little bubbles. Aroma is a bit of a let down thogh, just the canonical roasted malts and coffe. Given that, in the mouth is surprising instead. It’s a full-bodied beer that, with the aid of a medium carbonation, envelops the tongue with a very pleasant silky texture and flavours of roasted coffe, spices and caramel, with a nice smoky finish. Very well balanced and easy to drink with big sips.

Roasted malts, coffee, creamy on the nose, no hop aroma. Very dark. Probably a 35-36. Light tan head dissipated quickly Sweet roasty malts up front with bitterness balancing out the mid palate and finish. I get some hip bitterness but think most is from the coffee flavors from the roasting. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated Nice beer, well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PapaVillum (811) - Valby, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2016
Sort/brun Sweet Stout med flot tætskummende moccafarvet skumkrone på 2-3 cm. Rolig og ufiltreret. Toppen svinder til kant og overflade. Aromaen er sødligt præget af chokolade-noter, havregrød, ristet malt og lidt fugtig kælderaroma. Rigtig fin. Smagen er bittersød i en meget fin balance. Noter af chokolade og ristet malt. Middel bitter og lille sødme. Velsmagende. Fin middel fyldig krop og rund blød mundfølelse. Middel karboneret og en næsten cremet konsistens. Afslutningen er bittersød og let syrlig samt kort. Overall: Der er simpelthen så pokkers meget god smag i disse beskedne 5,5 % ABV. Smagsmæssigt fås det vist ikke bedre, hvis alkoholprocenten ikke skal højere op. Dejligt bekendtskab. 550 ml, flaske, 5.5 % ABV, BB: 10/2015, købt i Barley Wine i CPH City. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
