Mahogany color. Aromas of paprika, charred meats, and cracked pepper with a slightly chewy, vibrant, effervescent, dry medium-to-full body and a tingling, interesting, long steel cut oats, moist tobacco, soy sauce, baking chocolate, crystallized orange peel, and cinnamon finish. A dry, chewy stout that is rustic and table-friendly.

Oatmeal stouts are brown to dark brown in color and range from 4-6% in alcohol. These beers tend to be highly flavorful with an occasional hint of sweetness. Oatmeal stouts are a twist on the sweet stout style with a portion of oats used in place of roasted malt, creating a rich velvety finish. The Yorkshire brewer, Samuel Smiths, revived this style around 1980 and it has since become a popular staple of the US craft-brewing scene. Noteworthy examples of this style include: McAuslan St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout, Samuel Smiths Oatmeal Stout, Rogue Shakespeare Stout and Anderson Valley Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout.
