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.

Dark ruby color, almost opaque color, firm beige creamy head. Roasted malty and chocolaty, a bit sticky aroma. Chocolaty, lightly toasted malty, a bit sweet beer. Almost like beer with wheat (=banana fruity), so propably it is oat doing a job.

Oakes (16965) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2000
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2004 Very dark brown, thin light tan head; aroma like the finest Belgian chocolate mixed with Atholl Brose. I want to fall into the glass. Silky body, fruity notes of cherry, redcurrant add an interesting layer to the silky malts and chocolate overtones. Sweet, luscious finish. One of those beers that leaves you at a loss for words. The classic oatmeal stout - depth without compromising stylistic adherence.

Pours very nice brownish black in the glass. Nose is very nutty, some caramels and coffee. Taste is much the same. The nuts really shine through. A little chocolate malt too. Rated 7/17/2000

FatPhil (15563) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 26, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2015 355ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki) (6:4:8:4:13=3.5)
Practically black, thin head. Bizarrely, theres the aroma of mouldy cheese. However, theres also sweet dark fruits and coffee. The taste starts quite coffee-like, but as you let it sit in the mouth that builds up. And as you swallow, when the vapours rise up into the nose, it gets even stronger. Soft mouthfeel, good full body. The taste has burnt raisins too. Rich and smooth, and very tasty.
Rerate: 355ml bottle (Pudel, Tallinn) (7:4:7:4:15=3.7)
Lovely roast aroma. Soy, some tar, later even a hint of oatmeal. Taste has bacon too. Delicious. Full smooth palate. So drinkable.

MiP (15453) - Snderborg, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2009
Bottle, 5% at K09. Dark brown colour. Mild malty flavour, dark malt. Low bitterness. Good mouthfeel, nicely chewy, but the carbonation is a little high. Subtle but very nice.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2006
Bottle 35,5 cl. Dark brown - big offwhite head. Burned, roasted, raisins, chokolate, sweet. Good but not enough power.
