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.

Botella. Color negro opaco. No demasiada espuma pero mantiene una fina capa. Magnífico aroma: frutos rojos, mermelada, chocolate blanco, vainilla... En boca resulta bastante seca con notas a frutos rojos. Mucho cuerpo y deja un amargor notable. Muy completa.

King_Alex_II (790) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 10, 2015
Black with beige foam. The smell has a lot of licorice and is a bit boozy in the nose. The taste is a little boozy as well. Sweet with surprisingly little coffee with a little more chocolate. Not too strong in alcohol content. Nice beer.

SinH4 (1395) - Garching, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2015
Nice black color with inch thick tan head and red highlight. Aroma is roasted malt, a bit sweet prunes. Taste is dry, roasty, a bit fruity. Silky mouthfeel. Overall quite nice, not too heavy, but the malts are extreme. Well-priced.

Negra opaca. Escasa espuma ocre. Fuerte aroma a madera, café y ligeramente a hierbabuena. Mucho cuerpo y textura cremosa, con carbonatacion media. Muy sabrosa, mezclando tabaco, caramelo, café.. Final entre dulce y amargo. Excelente.

Pours nice and black with dense tan head. The mouth feel is awesome, creamy and viscous. But the flavour is overpowered by the malt. Just too much to let and other flavours come through. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

APPEARANCE - perfectly black, brown head. Perfect oatmeal stout color. NOSE – sweet maltiness. FLAVOR – classic! Oatmeal stout at its finest (yes, I’ve read the label, but I believe it for sure).
