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: MAY 6, 2016 Dark pour, enormous light brown head. Smells is faint but pretty nice..roasted and sweet. Taste is good, slightly bitter at the end, but its a good bitter. Very smooth, but a tad thin for a stout. Aftertaste that follows a few seconds later is a stronger bitter...not quite as pleasant, actually bordering on unpleasant. Overall pretty good. Id drink this one again.

Pours jet black with big tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted barley, sugar and molasses. Tastes of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted barley, and dark fruit. Has a creamy, heavy body with low carbonation. Has a great mouth feel and bitter black licorice aftertaste.

I am a 1-2 once per week beer drinker. I began drinking Guinness 28 years ago during my honeymoon in Ireland. If I am out at a restaurant, and Guinness is on tap, it is always my first choice. This Oatmeal Stout was good and reconfirmed that I like Stouts. It has a slight but noticeable sweet start, I guess from the oatmeal, which I enjoyed. But, it cost $4.79 for one pint bottle at the beer store and, for the price, and for overall taste, I still prefer Guinness.

*Old rating. Great intense dark brew. Not too sticky but great deep. Round, fresh, roasted. Chocolate, roasted oats, moderate bitter. Long dark roasted espresso-chocolate aftertaste on a fresh and drinkable body. Great!
