3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Dark opaque black with tan lacing head. Chocolate aroma and flavor. A little coffee, more so as it warms. Pretty good.

550 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown almost black colour with a medium, long lasting brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate and a hint of licorice. Sweet flavour of dark fruit, roasted malt, chocolate and coffee with a bittersweet finish. Medium body with a silky smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice sweet stout.

Although it is not my favorite style, the thickness and cereal palate since the first sip reminds me of its fine quality.

Pours a dark black with a tan head. Aroma is toasty but with a very odd sickly sweet smell that I can't put my finger on. It is a bit off putting. Taste is roast malt, hints of chocolate. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky.

Really earthy one with some milky moments, cereals and some malt. Drinkable, maybe a bit thick but also quite watery. Good one.

Pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with steady low ehad and medium body. Aroma of torf and malt. Taste of torf, earth, leaves, woods, chocolate and mild coffee. Light dusty and roasty / smokey hints. Not a bad one.

Aromas of a scotch ale? Yeah I know that's weird, especially for a O.S. ... bb Nov 14 l13240. head retention around the rim, it has a high sweetness, low carbonation. Smooth but water mouth feel. It doesn't help being shipped from England to Australia, I'm drinking at room temp of 17 degrees. I'm not really satisfied.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tömör és világos bézs színű habja rátelepszik a sötét főzetre, melyből intenzív, pörkölt gabonás illat árad némi vaníliás beütéssel. Ez a visszafogott, süteményes édesség ízében is megjelenik, és kiegészül egyfajta égetett cukros, karamellás jelleggel, mely mintegy ellensúlyként szolgál az erőteljes, stoutos karakterhez.

Pours a very nice dark brown with tan head. Oats, spice, roasted malt, and some chocolate on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice roasted character.

550 ml bottle to a tulip. Opaque black with 2 finger creamy tan head and a bit of lacing. Some sweet roasted maltiness and toffee notes. Excellent mouth feel, smooth, well balanced. The original modern oatmeal stout sets a high standard. Would like to try a coffee version... Like "Mother's milk"!!!
