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.

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.

Good for what it is, but I’m not too fond of such sweet beers.

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..

Aroma has oats and fresh coffee. Rather sweet, but also bitter taste with roasted malt. Firm coffee and chocolate flavors. Good lacing. Delicious and complex beer with a long finish.
