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.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2018 This is a lighter stout. Not too chewy in flavor but somehow refreshingly sweet. This is what a good stout is supposed to taste like. Beer should be beer, not desert. And this beer understands that premise very well.

0.355 l bottle from K-Citymarket Ruoholahti, Helsinki. Appearance is dark ruby and tan head. Taste is sweet motor oil. Oats make this very smooth and easy, but not too sweet. Not for those who like dry Irish stout.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 Couleur noir foncé, légère mousse couleur caramel qui s estompe rapidement pour laisser place un un petit filet au tour du verre, au nez malt rôti, chocolat, en bouche nous avons au début le goût de chocolat et de mélasse, après nous avons le goût de liqueur pour ensuite laisser place au réglisse voir de prune rouge.

1/7/18: 12 ounce draft pour into snifter ($7.50 at The Garage). Pitch black pour, off white thin lacing. Chocolate and toffee aroma. Chocolate the predominate taste, toffee and bread as well. Nice balanced beer, with a firm mouth feel and presence. East drinking very good beer

Benters (154) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2017
Pours a very dark brown, clear colour with a reddish hue when you hold it up to the light. Average carbonation. Aromas are of light coffee, roasted malts and sweet dark chocolate with a delicate fruitiness. Taste is really smooth and silky; really sweet with a nice roastiness at the same time. Really enjoyable stout.

Bottle shared. Pours light black with tan head. Sweet thin bodied chocolate. A bit light.

Onesimus (108) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2017
This stout glugged gloopily into the glass. A deep deep brown with a shimmer of dark crimson bleeding through when held up to the light. A cappuccino coloured head with turgid three fingered creamy textured crown stood its ground for ten minutes only slowly giving way sustained slender covering with great lacing. On the nose it’s restrained roasted coffee hints of chocolate and dry fruits are there if you press into the aroma. I take a good healthy gulp and feel the deep velvet, silky smooth beer with its fine soft carbonation salubriously filling my mouth with a great sense of slick satisfaction. Flavours wise up front its sufficient but not overly bold is the balanced dry fruit and coffee. This leisurely lingers around and then slowly fades in with a very light liquorice bitterness a perfect long ending to a lovely endearing beer endeavour. I like it.

Beautiful dark beer with a thick, creamy head. This has a pleasant taste and is not too overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
