Product 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.

    This used to be my main squeeze for an after dinner delight before my darker days of excessive drinking. This or Guiness if I had to choose only one beer to drink forever. Although I can't have any at all. Drink up for me friends! Cheers! Drink Responsibly! ?

    Gotta give this one its due. It's a classic for a reason. Just the right amount of ever-so-slightly bitter and very smooth.

    He seemed to enjoy it. I'm sure it was great lol. Guess I'll have to order another 4pack to find out for myself.

Drizly's take

Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout stands among one of the few ales still brewed with well water and fermented in traditional stone Yorkshire squares. The combination of an organic water source and classic methodology comes together to produce a sultry brew that goes down smooth and finishes with a bittersweet aftershock. 

This vegan stout makes a delightful and thoughtful selection for entertaining friends who prefer an herbivorous option with flavor. Samuel Smith stout beer pairs well with classic European entrees. Think national favorites like bangers and mash, shepherd's pie and fish and chips. Post a review for friends online and ask them to rate their favorite stouts for you in return.
