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 1800ís, 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.

Obviously, this is a classic. Dark (dark brown/almost black), with a decent head. Taste of chocolate, oatmeal and coffee. Sweeter than an Irish style stout.

AgentAle (1074) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 23, 2015
Aroma is molasses, fig, oats, dark sugar, chocolate, vanilla and minerals. Taste is rich roasty malts, deep and pleasant. Some caramel and chocolate her. Balanced well with light hops and pleasant mineral ground water. Appearance is black with a thin beige head that retains pretty well. Not overly thick mouthfeel but nice overall.

Kita (1464) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle, 0.55l. Pours opaque dark brown with thick soapy brown head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of grass, mild roasted malt, chocolate and light smoke. Taste starts with light sweet licorice and cereals, follows by sweet roasted malt and grass, mouthfeel is rather dry, while finish is mild bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. This is a true fathersí support to lactating mothers...
