THE STYLE
Oatmeal stouts have sweet malty aromas, hints of nutty oatmeal and fruity characters. The colour is a deep brown-black. Usually brewed with pale malts and a small amount of black patent malt to achieve the dark colouring. A big difference from other stouts is the addition of oats to add a silky smoothness, and a sweetness from the malts used.

Furthermore, this beer has been elevated with the use of oak, bourbon, and house-made vanilla.

THE HISTORY

Every stout out there originated from the Porter style of beer. The first reference of stout beer dates back to 1677, describing stronger dark beers of the time. The stout style became quite popular in Ireland and Scotland. During the late 19th century, oatmeal stouts were marketed as a tonic of strength and health (advertised Jan. 27, 1894 issue of Aberdeen Journal). The health claims added to the style’s popularity, even though the oatmeal accounted for around 1% of the grain bill.
