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.

ajnepple (5448) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2016
12 oz bottle from Mollys Spirits. Black appearance with a lingering tan head and light lacing. Aroma of chocolate malt, roasted grain, light coffee and light caramel/toffee. Similar flavor, rich, dark and malty with a mild bittersweet finish. Medium to light body with a smooth, creamy feel. A classic.

Ritzn (681) - Bavaria, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2016
Black with little brown head. Aroma is coffee, brown sugar, roast, lacto, maybe raisins, cedar wood. Some grainy structure in there... Taste is rich and deep, chocolatey bittersweetness, also coffee bitterness and a biting sourness from the carbonation. Finish is bitter coffee and roast, medium to full body. Due to the aggressive carbonation and some sourness this is not as smooth as it could be. Not bad.
