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.

I am a 1-2 once per week beer drinker. I began drinking Guinness 28 years ago during my honeymoon in Ireland. If I am out at a restaurant, and Guinness is on tap, it is always my first choice. This Oatmeal Stout was good and reconfirmed that I like Stouts. It has a slight but noticeable sweet start, I guess from the oatmeal, which I enjoyed. But, it cost $4.79 for one pint bottle at the beer store and, for the price, and for overall taste, I still prefer Guinness.

*Old rating. Great intense dark brew. Not too sticky but great deep. Round, fresh, roasted. Chocolate, roasted oats, moderate bitter. Long dark roasted espresso-chocolate aftertaste on a fresh and drinkable body. Great!

Poured from a bottle. Pours a dark brown with a big fluffy tan head and plenty of lacing. Faint aroma of dark malts. Medium body, not very thick. Very smooth and creamy with a slightly malty taste. Flavors are not very prominent. OK, but pretty plain and unremarkable.

Originally rated on 8/5/08. My first try at an oatmeal stout, i like oatmeal, and stouts, it sounded like an intriguing combination. It had a black body with a thin tan head. aroma of roasted malts, and coffee. Flavor also had the roasted malt, coffee and brown sugar, not any oatmeal to speak of however. Mouthfeel was creamy and was very smooth, with a sweet aftertaste. I will definatley give this another try

En god smag af noget ala lakrids, har en let humlet smag, og en lettere røget eftersmag. En god øl der kan drikkes både til mad, men er faktisk også rigtig god alene.
