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.

550ml bottle into tulip. Minneapolis. Decent stout a suppose. Bought this to use in a recipe. Aroma is fairly subtle : roasted barley, nutty, earthy. Very dark brown with lacy tan head. Medium sweet, nutty taste. Fairy smooth texture. Lighter body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brown with a finger of bubbly light tan head. Aroma of oats, malt, a touch of aniseed. Taste is excellently balanced, oats, chocolate, roasted malt. It goes down smoothly, medium-bodied, easy drinking, has a creaminess with a dry finish. Great stuff.

Bottle at csakajo. Dark brown beer with a light brown head. Nose of nuts toffee and cocoa. The alcohol is dominant in the nose as well. Taste feels like cured meat at first, even though it isn’t smoked beer. This taste remains dominant for me. Aftertaste is very nice nutty-chocolately, but at first it feels like raw meat. Not very special for me.

Bottle. BB Jun 16. Pours dark brown with a fast receding very light tan head. The aroma is really bready, really sweet. So is the flavour, which has this nice dry chocolate and cocoa character to it. The moutfeel is very soft and smooth, the carbonation mild, and body medium. Love the juicy berries note in the finish, mixing with the roast. Kinda like cranberries - as it warms, I start getting it in the aroma as well. Nothing exciting, just a very good beer.

Quick3Beers (749) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 19, 2015
Pours a dark brown from a bottle with a thin khaki head, little lacing. Aroma of molasses/cola, flavor similar. Not thin like other sweet stouts, which is usually my complaint of them. Well-balanced, not too bitter or too sweet--well-balanced enough so that you don’t even notice. Good beer.

Aromat: bardzo słaby, lekko owsiany. Wygląd: czarne z rubinowymi refleksami, piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, długo się utrzymuje, zostawia ślady na szkle. Smak: podobnie jak w aromacie mało się tu dzieje, trochę owsianych akcentów, kremowe, troszkę czekolady w posmaku. Jestem ogólnie bardzo zawiedziony.

suurjuust (2582) - ESTONIA - OCT 8, 2015
Dark brown beer, big fluffy tan head. Nose is a smooth mix of mild chocolate, malt, roasty notes. Flavor is coffee and cocoa dust, mild sweetness and roast. Dry finish with slightly bitter roastiness. Nicely balanced, very smooth and drinkable.
