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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
550mL bottle. Pours an opaque, stouty brown-black with a massive creamy mocha colored head with unparalleled retention and lacing. Nose is bakers chocolate, roasted barley, some coffee, and some of that famed Sam Smith butterscotchy goodness. Mouth is medium bodied, creamy, lots of cocoa, coffee beans. roasted barley, butterscotch, vanilla, raisins. I always like these on a crisp autumn (or frigid winter) evening, however, it’s the end of August and the heat and humidity have died down enough to make it feel like fall is almost here, so yeah. Strangely enough, I guess I never bothered rating this before. The was the first oatmeal stout that I ever had many years ago, and it is stil teh best as well -- or damn close to it.
