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 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.

Lonick (2168) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 18, 2017
Bottle @home. Pours almost black tan/beige head. Nose is chocolate, slightly nutty, slightly fruity, slight licorice. Taste is more of the same, a great wee beer with a great bitter finish.

aleanguz91 (15) - Grignasco (NO), ITALY - AUG 17, 2017
Bevuta il 13/08/2017 @MelrosePlace in Romagnano Sesia (NO). Colore nero, schiuma color nocciola poco persistente che si affievolisce fino a rimanere una patina color cappuccino . Birra beverina, non troppo gassata. In bocca predomina il cioccolato con note di caffè. Abbastanza dissetante. Retrogusto leggermente amaro e nel contempo appena acidulo.

varanid99 (1257) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2017
Dark brown pour with a thick tan head, fades but still lasts as a thin layer and good lacing. Bready, roasty, coffee and a bit of liquorice on the nose. Taste is similar, liquorice is a bit more noticeable than in the aroma, creamy mouthfeel.

3.3
AleRider78 (1333) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2017
Pours a thick foamy, light beige head and has a dark brown appearance. Fairly weak lacing. Light bready and toasty malt aromas with the oatmeal coming through in the finish. Even a bit of vanilla. Mild toasty, nutty flavours with hints of caramel, coffee, very light chocolate notes. Oatmeal flavour is pretty noticeable but still weak. Creamy and chalky mouthfeel. Pretty average carbonation. Not too bad. Too much of a watery mouthfeel. Was expecting something with more substance and/or thickness.

vinivini (2581) - Gomel, BELARUS - JUL 14, 2017
Bottle 355ml. Deep brown to black pour with well-formed beige head. The nose is well united esters, roasted malts, cream, dried fruit, coffee beans. Complex. Light body. More roast on tongue. Medium dry. The same complexity. Light bitterness. A perfect session stout.

0.355 l bottle from Beerlovers, shared at home. Pours black with no head. Coffee, roasted malts and liquorice in aroma. In taste the same notes appeat accompanied with creamy mouthfeel and surprisngly light body. Not bad at all, but nothing outstanding either.

4.6

Close to beer perfection. Its just delicious from beginning to end. Creamy, chocolate, roasty, milk, fruit, liquorice sweetness but not overly. Another belter from Sam Smiths.
