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 1800s, 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.

Bottled (BB 03/2009)
Dark ruby color, almost opaque color, firm beige creamy head. Roasted malty and chocolaty, a bit sticky aroma. Chocolaty, lightly toasted malty, a bit sweet beer. Almost like beer with wheat (=banana fruity), so propably it is oat doing a job.

Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2000
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2004 Very dark brown, thin light tan head; aroma like the finest Belgian chocolate mixed with Atholl Brose. I want to fall into the glass. Silky body, fruity notes of cherry, redcurrant add an interesting layer to the silky malts and chocolate overtones. Sweet, luscious finish. One of those beers that leaves you at a loss for words. The classic oatmeal stout - depth without compromising stylistic adherence.

Pitch black with creamy brown head. Roasted malts - nice chocolate/caramel & coffee. Both aroma and taste - very enjoyable. Smooth pleasant creamy body & mouthfeel. Light bitter roast end. Overall quite simple - but very nice!

Pours very nice brownish black in the glass. Nose is very nutty, some caramels and coffee. Taste is much the same. The nuts really shine through. A little chocolate malt too. Rated 7/17/2000

bhensonb (13984) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Aroma of wood and roasted grain. Near opaque brown/black with ruby hilites using halogen. Decent tan head with a bit of lacing. Full mouth feel, a hint of sweet, a lot of roasted grain. Very smooth toasty drink. Nice balance of hop and grain at the end, evidencing a burnt/bitter dryness.
