Oatmeal Stout

Style Snapshot

This roasty, malty ale is very dark amber in color, is medium to full-bodied, is low to moderately strong, and makes use of oatmeal grains to create a fullness of body and flavor.

The sweetness of Oatmeal Stout is between the Sweet and Dry Stout styles, while it is lighter in color than either.

History

Oatmeal Stouts use, surprise, oatmeal to provide a fullness of body and flavor and to make a more 'nutritious' Stout.
