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.

Poured from a 550 ml bottle. Nice pitch black color, with a beige and dense head leaving a marked and deep lace. Bread and roasted malts aromas with hints of black coffee. Looks great, smells great. What about the taste? In a word- medicinal. The taste does not linger, but that is how I describe it. I have probably had three oatmeal stouts BETTER than this one in the past 12 months. I know I am out of place with the other rave ratings here, but that is what I am feeling.

355 ml bottle. Bought in La mise en Biere in Lausanne. Dark british stout smell, with coffe, cereals, butter, soy, and that natural refreshing water smell. Dark color with a brown creamy head. Interesting taste, never tried an outmeal stout before, but the name seems pretty acurate, it’s a stout taste, but with least toasted flavour, could be named sweet, yes, but it’s a different more frutal flavor. Got some peach there, grapes, dark fruit, bread. Good taste and fantastic packaging.

Notas a avena y grano, en general muy maltosa. Color negro, carbonatacion y corona de espuma media, excelente retención, cuerpo redondo. En boca maltosa, notas a avena y ligera acidez. Al paladar fácil de beber, cremosa, densa, aterciopelada, de largo final y muy bien equilibrada. En general una excelente cerveza, que nunca deja de sorprender y que se disfruta completamente.

Smooth, almost "chocolatey". I like most of the Samuel Smith brews. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tognetta (492) - Campinas, BRAZIL - NOV 17, 2015
Negra, espuma bege, boa formação e média persistência. Aroma achocolatado, torrado, aveia, leve aroma de frutas vermelho escuras, leve café no início . No paladar o achocolatado fica ainda mais evidente, amargor torrado, seco. Corpo leve/médio, com média carbonatação. Aftertaste mais para café e torrado, de media/longa persistência, mantendo um leve dulçor. Otima stout !

550ml bottle into tulip. Minneapolis. Decent stout a suppose. Bought this to use in a recipe. Aroma is fairly subtle : roasted barley, nutty, earthy. Very dark brown with lacy tan head. Medium sweet, nutty taste. Fairy smooth texture. Lighter body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brown with a finger of bubbly light tan head. Aroma of oats, malt, a touch of aniseed. Taste is excellently balanced, oats, chocolate, roasted malt. It goes down smoothly, medium-bodied, easy drinking, has a creaminess with a dry finish. Great stuff.

Bottle at csakajo. Dark brown beer with a light brown head. Nose of nuts toffee and cocoa. The alcohol is dominant in the nose as well. Taste feels like cured meat at first, even though it isn’t smoked beer. This taste remains dominant for me. Aftertaste is very nice nutty-chocolately, but at first it feels like raw meat. Not very special for me.

Bottle. BB Jun 16. Pours dark brown with a fast receding very light tan head. The aroma is really bready, really sweet. So is the flavour, which has this nice dry chocolate and cocoa character to it. The moutfeel is very soft and smooth, the carbonation mild, and body medium. Love the juicy berries note in the finish, mixing with the roast. Kinda like cranberries - as it warms, I start getting it in the aroma as well. Nothing exciting, just a very good beer.
