COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2015 35.5.cl bottle, deep brown color with creamy head, roasted and coffee aroma, in mouth is really smooth, creamy, sweet, without carbonation, and full, but, i personally don’t like the aftertaste, dry with lightly hopped notes... Generally i like stout beer, but I have drunk some better stout

Old rating. Chocolate malts, coffee and cream on the nose. More of the same on the palate. Rich and creamy mouthfeel and goes down smooth. One of my favorite British stouts.

This has always been one of my favorite brews in one of my favorite styles. A dark rich brown pour with a great malty aroma. Silky texture, smooth and satisfying. A great go to brew!

Sits quite nicely on the tongue. Malty flavor. Not overly strong alcohol presence. Very smooth start to a slightly bitter finish.

cafgen (152) - California, USA - FEB 20, 2015
A dark color with a two finger tan head. Aroma is toasted malt, some chocolate and oatmeal. Taste is roasted malt and oatmeal. A would have like it even more if alcohol was not present. I might have had a bad bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rafael52 (128) - Łódź, POLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Barwa: ciemnobrunatna, klarowna. Piana: obfita, beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, dość trwała. Zapach: dominują aromaty palonych słodów, gorzka czekolada, kawa, wyczuwalne również melanoidyny, nuty przypieczonego ciasta, w tle suszona śliwka oraz delikatna wędzonka. Smak: ogólnie dość smukłe, dominują ciemne i palone słody, na pierwszym planie melanoidyny, na drugim delikatna kawa, palona goryczka oraz delikatna kwaskowość od palonych słodów. Wysycenie: średnie. Uwagi: piwo bardziej pasuje na porter, zdecydowanie brakuje paloności.
