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.

Excellent stout. I like this better than Murphy’s, but not quite as much as Guinness Extra Stout.

I was expecting something a little smoother. A slight disappointment.

Incredible thick, sweet, and malty brew. I’ll take this over that other stout they make at st. james gate any old day of the week. Great stuff.

One word - wow! I was actually able to get a fresh and unskunked four pack the other night - and it was a treat. Aroma - roasted and inviting; Appearance - poured in a imperial, nice off-white 1 in. head hugged tightly to the midnight liquid; Taste - creamy,chocolatey and sweet but a balanced dryness in the finish - absolutely wonderful; top 5 all time on my beer list - highly recommended to all. Overall Impression didn’t get as high because its so hard to find this unskunked. Cheers!

Very good stout. Very dark, aromatic, and taste to boot. Has kind of a creamy, sweet taste to it that finishes off very mildly bitter. Very pleasent indeed.
