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 1800s, 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.

I really liked this one from Sammy's. Great example of the style, without being overdone. Chewy texture, and smooth on the palate make this an easy drinking session beer.

Nose: Rampant oatmeal and molasses attack. Vanilla and spice and ooey gooey feel. Creamy start. Roasty finish. Yes, I believe I will have another.

Big-bubbled, sudzy, tan head; dark brown in color. Smooth, milky texture with very mild carbonation. Roasted coffee, chocolate, and hints of subtle fruit. Lactic with a corn syrup sweetness. Yeasty, "wet rag" notes. Very mild bitterness.

Note: Very fresh bottles. Black color with a small light tan head. Aroma is malty and oaty. This beer is silky smooth. Tastes of oatmeal, chocolate, and malt blend perfectly. Sweet smooth finish. I love this beer.

The oatmeal is surprisingly obvious, but not overdone. A little on the thin side, but this gives it the great combination of rich flavor and crisp finish.

(550 ml bottle) Samuel Smith makes wonderful beer, and this stout is no exception. Offwhite head laces on the glass. Lovely sweet toffee flavor, solid, dry feel with excellent complexity and not a trace of bitterness. Roasted sugar aroma. Outstanding.
