Medium brown color. Aromas and flavors of warm porridge, carrot peels, sautéed spinach, and wax with a supple, soft, finely carbonated, dry medium body and a smooth, fleeting finish imparting touches of hot cocoa, kale, jicama, and dusty earth finish. A mild, earthy stout.

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.
