About Oatmeal Stout
Oatmeal stouts range from medium brown to black in color. As with all stouts, the aroma of oatmeal stouts is of roasted grain with a slight hint of fruitiness or coffee. Stouts of this kind have an especially sweet flavor. The nutty, grainy character provided by the addition of oats meshes with the darker flavors of a traditional stout to create a wonderfully smooth and silky body. Beers of this kind will be full bodied and finish sweet and creamy.
