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.

Piwo czarne, z obfitą pianą która utrzymuje się do samego końca. W zapachu kawa, gorzka czekolda, masło a nawet trochę wanilli - bogactwo aromatu. W smaku lekko alkoholowe i czuć lekko banan. Smak jest bardzo złożony. Piwo w piciu sprawia wrażenie gęstego, może to za sprawą użytych różnego rodzaju słodów zbożowych. Niewielka goryczka. Piwo bardzo pijalne. Super stout !

I love this beer! I’m usually into wheat beers and lighter tasting types but this beer is my new favorite. Very malty, creamy and thick, great taste and feel like you are drinking a true thick beer. Smooth all the way through and only a tiny bit of bitterness at the end but nothing like a normal dark or bock. Of you like the smoothness, thickness, and non bitter taste of wheat beers this will be tour new favorite.

Pint glass bottle pour. Very dark brown with a frothy tan head that leaves nice lacing as it shrinks. Aroma is oats, barley, and coffee with cream. Flavor is mocha, oatmeal, and roasted barley. Creamy and somewhat dry. outstanding.

BrewGoblin (630) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JAN 22, 2016
A damn solid beer if ever there were one, Samuel Smith’s never ceases to deliver the goods. There are no jutting edges to this beer, smooth and well rounded with a silky yet peppy mouthfeel. Milk chocolate, extremely subtle dark espresso, and a slight lactic twang paired with toasty brown bread. I could drink a Stout like this all day, any day. Fantastic.

Bottle to tulip. Pours black with tan froth head, good lacing. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, toffee, oatmeal, raisin. Taste of same with some black olive in finish. Molasses too although I did just eat a bunch of BBQ. Mouthfeel is mod syrupy with mod-heavy carb.

szymonskc (250) - Skórcz, POLAND - JAN 14, 2016
Aromat intensywny, śliwki w czekoladzie, lekka paloność. Kolor ciemnobrunatny, delikatne przebłyski pod światło. Piana beżowa, obfita, dość gęsta, krótkotrwała. Piwo pełne w smaku, na pierwszym planie palone słody, gorzka czekolada. W tle trochę kakao, śliwki. Przyjemny, lekki finisz z lekko paloną niską goryczką. Wysycenie niskie. Piwo bardzo dobre, gdyby goryczka była trochę wyższa, byłoby jeszcze lepiej.

Bottle. Above average carbonation. Rich and flavorful, belies relatively low ABV 5.0. Slightly sweet. Prominent caramel and toffee flavors. Very smooth, well finished, with no off-flavors. Very drinkable. Distinct toffee flavored finish.
