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 1800s, 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: OCT 11, 2003 I think I'm in love. Beautiful beer. Beautiful label and a wonderful taste. Smooth, dark and delicious with a little sweetness w/o being overly sweet. One of my favorites in my limited repertoire. Its GLORIOUS.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 4, 2003
Pours with a dark brown to black body with red tinting topped by a thick lasting tan head with good lacing. Slightly sweet and roasty malt aroma with subtle chocolate notes and a very slight hoppiness. Sweet and slighlty chocolaty malt flavor wtih a touch of roastiness and a little bitterness. The finish is roasty with a touch of hoppiness. Full bodied, a little chewy but smooth.

Classic stout aroma with a hint of oatmeal. Dark brown in color with a head that looks like it will last. Not a big flavored beer.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 3, 2003
Nice opaque black color,small medium tan head that had a pretty good staying power,mild lacing.Malty hoppy aroma.Sweet malt taste,maybe a mild dried fruit presence along with a decent amount of hop's.The after taste was sweet and malty and fairly long lastingthere was also a slight sour taste to this brew that was in the middle of the tasting.It's an ok brew nothing special IMO but well worth trying again.This one might just be highly light struck and getting a little skunked out.

I'm not a stout fan but this stuff is great. The mouthfeel is gorgeous, silvery smooth in your mouth with fruit, roasted malt, chocolate, long finish. The balance in this beer is great.

Deep mahogany color with little head. Roast aromas. Initially roast coffee flavors. As it warmed up it was sweeter and less harsh.

Big creamy head, malty aroma, brown sugar and some mint. Sweet roasted malt and dried fruit flavors. Subdued hoppiness at the end and the flavors linger gently. Old fav of mine.
