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.

Pours a beautiful tan head and leaves lace all the way down the glass. Smell some roasted sweetness and a nutty aroma. Creamy mouth feel, very smooth. Has a unique taste and it does not have the amount of bitterness many stouts do. This is one of the best

From bottle 2013 Pour- Pours dark brown with a creamy, pillowy, tan head. Aroma- Caramel, bread, chocolate, roast malts, mild fruity smell Taste- Toasted oat, hints of bitter chocolate, raisins, and a bitter dark roasted malt taste that was not present on the nose. Aftertaste is sweet oatmeal and caramel. Palate- very creamy mouthyfeel with a nice roasted moderately bitter finish, and then a sweeter oatmeal (duh) aftertaste. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. I was very surprised by this beer. It’s surprisingly light for a stout. I could drink this beer even if I was full after a meal. A good oatmeal stout I would drink again and again.

The Oatmeal Stout pours a very dark reddish brown to almost black with a thick frothy tan head. The aroma is milk and cream. The flavor is milk, cream and caramel. Overall this is a nice brew. It is rich and creamy.

Really good stout. Perfect balance of chocolate and regular coffee. Just another great beer by Samuel Smith.
