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.

Pours an opaque rich walnut with some copper against the bright light, a frothy beige head sticking to the walls of the glass. Smells of faint roasted coffee in the morning and malted grains in the mill. Quite an uncomplicated taste but refined, subdued, that of roasted barley, very, very low acid and bitterness from the English hops, a lactose sweetness pronounced most noticeably in the superb aftertaste that lingers like cane sugar syrup with medium, easy to drink body. As I say always comparing great European beers to most of their U.S. counter parts (see Founders Breakfast Stout for example) a brewer, like a suitor vying for the attention of a woman, shouldnt go over the top to cheaply try and impress. Stick to a balance of ingredients as Samuel Smith does in all their beers.

castor010 (199) - 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.

Aroma: roasted dark malts, milky. Appearance: black color and creamy head. Taste: roasted dark malts, milky chocolate, coffee, smooth and rather semi-dry. 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.
