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.

Now this is one fine stout. Sweet, smoky flavor. Very smooth and balanced. Samuel Smith continues to impress me. ;)

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2003 Yessssss! Beautiful! Strong wood, smoke, coffee, nutty aroma. Kinda like a campfire. The taste was better than the aroma. Wonderful blend of coffee, smoke, nutty, wood, licorice, alcohol, and more. The color was black black, with just a hint of red when held directly in front of a 100 watt light bulb. The carbonation was quite low... which I like in a stout. A hint of sweetness in the aftertaste rounded out the flavor. This is one of the best stouts in the world. Yesssssss! Yesssss! Yesssssss!

Deep brown color with a hint of red, almost opaque.Malty aroma, strong full malty taste, slightly bitter aftertaste. A nice sweet stout. *Note-The first time I tried this, my husband and I nicknamed this the ’Bacon Beer.’ It tasted overwhelmingly like bacon and maple syrup. I didn’t notice that at all this time. Maybe I had a bad bottle. Much better the second time around.

Earthy musky aroma. Deep black hue. Tan head, slowly diminishing. Lovely malts, sweet caramel/mocha, medium bodied, slightly hopped finish. A wonderful sweet stout, a classic, no doubt.

Very, very good stout. I was impressed with this stout, and plan to put it head to head with Young’s Oatmeal Stout sometime soon. This stout definitley tastes better as it reaches a room temp. Nice, creamy head, although it doesn’t stick around too long. The oatmeal flavor was suttle IMO. Very smooth beer. Thin mouthfeel.

Wow, this is good stuff. Drinks extremely smooth. Excellent appearance. Taste, although thin, is very agreeable with me. I’ll definitely try some more of this.

Typical looking stout very dark. The taste is rather thin and it smells and finishes like soy sauce. Overall it is not bad, but the soy sauce flavoring is kind of weird...

This is a great oatmeal stout. Very smooth and well balanced with just the right amount of carbonation. Excellent!
