Our Oatmeal Stout is a classic British-style stout brewed with flaked oatmeal and roasted barley. Freshly-roasted coffee beans, cocoa and touches of raisin and dried fruit dominate the aroma of this super dark ale. The richness of the grain blend is balanced by the nutty character of the roasted malt, the creaminess from the oatmeal flakes and a dose of hops.

Before the 19th century, all barley was malted over wood-fired kilns and the resulting dark roasted malt defined the browns, porters, and stouts of England. Near the end of the 19th century, brewers had introduced oats for their purported restorative and nourishing characteristics, producing beers such as oatmeal stout and milk stout. By the 1950’s, Oatmeal Stout had nearly trickled out of existence. Following the beer’s literary rebirth in the articles of English beer writer Michael Jackson in the 1970’s, British and American craft brewers are once again promoting the style.

Pours a very dark brown to black color with an average sized, creamy, tan head. The head is mostly diminishing, leaving little to no lace. There were also some tiny brown particles which settled at the bottom of the glass. The smell is dominated by a roasted malt aroma, but I also picked up some dark bread and coffee tones as well. The hops came out herbal and the yeast lended an almost barnyard like quality to the nose. The taste was chocolate with mild coffee flavors. Also picked up some dark bread and enough of a herbal hop bitterness to balance it out. This was a medium body brew with a smooth texture and soft carbonation on the tongue.

Overall, this was a very easy drinking, if unspectacular beer. It was a good quality, smooth and well balanced brew. I would have no problem recommending this to anyone who favors stouts.
