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.

Dark brown color, big foamy head that lasts. Soft roasted aroma, some hops. Soft, oily mouthfeel, nicely blended hop and roast notes in the body and great subtle coffee notes following through into a surprisingly long palate. Semi sweet, and a little timid, but otherwise a uniquely balanced oatmeal stout.

Dark as night, and a great brown head that lasts. Maybe it was because I had Oatmeal on the brain, but I think I tasted oatmeal. I was a good beer, but not one of my favorite stouts. Good beer though.

This is hands down my favorite beer. The taste can’t be matched, and the aroma is the most mouth-watering around. Well worth the price. Doesn’t get better than this.

Mnnn! Thich beer! need I say more? Hoppy yet tasty, this beer is a much darker cousin of their fantastc lager, but I like it a good deal. Is i Taddy Porter, or no! This stuff rates third on my all time stout list behind Mackeson’s and Dragon. Too bad it’s so pricey.

I prefer porters over stout and prefer Smith’s Porter over this stout. I liked it better than Guiness, not as heavy as I thought, had a strange finish but not unpleasant.
