Oatmeal Stout

This stout is made with the addition of oatmeal in the grist which primarily changes the texture of the beer, although it can also have an impact on the flavor.

The addition of oatmeal gives this style a very smooth and silky feeling in the mouth, and the characteristic dark roasted stout flavors predominate. Sometimes the oatmeal can give an additional earthy complexity or sweetness as well.

Best served cool, at 46 to 54 degrees, in a pint glass, tumbler, or beer mug.
