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.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Taste follows nose with hints of smoke and soy sauce. Good stuff.

Pint at Winking Lizard Penisula Ohio. Sweet malt aroma. Thin beige head with film on glass. Pitch black in color. Sweet and smooth. No lingering after taste. This is such a nice mellow stout. Rare having this on draft in the states. Cheers!

The aroma of dark malt. Light taste of coffee, chocolate and dark malt. Okay bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth to a weak moment. Good but a little weak beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Thick milky stout with a real dryness to it. Some caramel malts in the mix make this a nice well balanced stout. The oats add some depth but arnt to strong in the mix making this very drinkable and tasty. Old breweries unique water gives this sam smiths brew its iconic taste. Unfortunately in the world dominated by craft lagers or poorly made bitters sam smiths is one of the few breweries standing from the more traditional English styles with a real understanding of english beers and the hard water that creates these more muddy creations.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2017 Moje první zkušenost se sweet stoutem. Skvělé pivo! Přijemné kávové aroma, jemná chuť i říz a krémová pěna.

I had this at Flying Saucer. Pours dark brown with a thick tan head. Taste roasted malt, hint of milk, mild dark fruit. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From Jun 2007 Purchased at Liquor Shed in Casper for US$3.70 This ours from 550ML bottle a very dark brown with a large offwhite head of foam that just won't quit. And...there's plenty of lacing so it's really a very nice brew when looking into my glass. The smell hits my nose with a lot of sweet and roasted malt and is very nice. The taste follows the nose to a T. A big abundance of roasted malt with some sweet tones followed by a nice oatmeal flavour and lesser notes of anise and citrus tang. Wow, the mix of flavours really work well together and *force* me to take sip after sip. Very drinkable and it makes for an *excellent* session brew. I could drink this one all night long. The carbonation is medium light and the mouthfeel is silky smooth. I can't believe that I haven't reviewed this before as it's simply an outstanding example of the style and is easy on the wallet. Highly recommended!!

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2017 It's a little boring, but it's simplicity is also a strength. It's got a great mouthfeel and it's delightfully drinkable. There are better beers, but this one is nice.
