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.

Loved it. The oatmeal flavors add a creamyness that really complements the typical stout characters in this beer.

Sour milk in the nose. Dark black color and a huge foamy head. Root beer-like taste with coffee tones, also a little butteryness. Medium bodied. Good stuff.

Samples vary widely. My latest was rather pruny, thin and unrewarding. American stouts offer so much more for the money.

This beer is a classic stout. One of the first beers I tried as a young lad. Since this beer comes all the way from england & its in a clear bottle, it is always slightly stale by the time it gets here.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2003 5/31/02: dark dark brown with a big & creamy tan head which dissappears quickly, not overly aromatic, smooth but full bodied, nice oatmeal-like finish
Re-Rate 8/25/02: An english hot and sour soup..tending to be extremely sweet in oatmeal ways..
