About the Oatmeal Stout

The Oatmeal Stout is very dark, full-bodied, roasty, malty ale with a complementary oatmeal flavor. The sweetness, balance, and oatmeal impression can vary considerably. Historically, the use of oatmeal in stouts originated in the 1800s, and were marketed as being “healty” beers. The Oatmeal Stout was popular in England between the two World Wars and the style was revived during the modern craft beer era.
