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.

Bizarre nose, couldnt quite put my finger on it. Deep brown color with small head. Quite dry in the mouth but a clean finish. I really like this beer.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2003 (Bottle) Pours a nice rocky beige head with a opaque black body. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Tastes malt and strong cocoa and finishes incredibly smooth and milky. Absolutely lovely, darling!

3fourths (9276) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2006 Bottle - Dark pour, lighter head than I expected. Smells like roasted coffee. Taste was normal at first, hearty stout, but aftertaste was like milk and cream, very smooth.

Black colour. Aroma is roasty, mocha. Flavour of malt, roasted coffee, notes of chocolate, quite filling and very creamy. Finishes with a long bitterness.
