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.

sweet silky and smooth. very mild and easy to drink. kind of wanted something stronger, but I could definitely drink this all day. Very neat classical branding.

castor010 (200) - Krakw, POLAND - JAN 2, 2017
Aromat - karmel, mleczna czekolada, piernik, cappuccino, kawy dość mało; palonych nut brak. Piana - obfita, drobna i średnia, beżowa; Smak - słodki, dużo karmelu, lekka kawowa kwaskowość, czekolada gorzka. Finisz wytrawny, czekoladowo kawowy i lekko ściągający. Za wysokie wysycenie, ktre szczypie w język i nie pozwala cieszyć się fakturą, ktrą powinny nadać płatki owsiane.

Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, smooth roasted finish. Overall: What a nice beer, rather sweet stout than oatmeal, but still, one should try this.
