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.

Dark brown easy to drink stout. Don't get fooled by saying easy to drink as it still has lots of flavour and shows real class from one of the world's best brewerys :)

UPDATED: APR 9, 2018 Bottle. Pours black with long lasting beige creamy head. No aroma. Probably because of the thick head. Unusually high carb, medium body and slick mf. Taste is roasted malt, extra dark chocolate, instant coffee. Same follows in the aftertaste.

Bottle from Stanislaus Brewskovitch, Zwolle. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel, liquorice, some nutty notes, chocolate, and a touch of tobacco. Flavour is sweet with a moderate roasty bitterness. Body is full. Classic old school Sweet Stout, enjoyable.

Bosskie (1022) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2018
Pitch black, nice big frothy head with varying intensities of white to beige. Smell is ashy liquorice caramel with a hint of coffee and chocolate. Mint. Taste is gentle bitterness with a smooth mineral mouthfeel, hint of sourness, light astringence which fades in the fresh cleansing finish. Beautiful balance, slightly medicinal, an elegant stout, very easy to drink.

I’m not sure if Samuel Smith’s makes a bad beer. Pours dark and has a good aroma. Smooth sweet taste with very small bitter bite. I love this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark mahogany - nearly black - with a thin, dark beige head. Aroma is caramel, coffee and roast. Taste is some chocolate, some brown sugar, warming to roast and light coffee. Finish is smooth roast. A very tasty stout.

500 ml bottle from Beers of Europe,bb 02/2019. Black,beige head. Nose - oats,chocolate,roasted malts,cherries. Taste - follows the nose pretty much. Too thin and lacking in taste.

luttonm (7213) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 18, 2018
Bottle in Seattle. Deep rosy, amber brown body with a lacing soft foam ring. Rich and delightful aroma with some toffee and roast coffee. Smooth, delicious sip that sings with flavor above the weight of the beer. Hint of smoke, and tobacco. Some leathery, meaty elements as well. Smooth, with a fuller body than the abv suggests. Completely delicious.

Wow. God velsmagende øl fra øverste hylde. Fyldig øl med tilpas bitterhed og aroma.
