WRCLW Oatmeal Stout—tasting notes
WRCLW Oatmeal Stout by Browar Stu Mostow is a Sweet Stout brewed with oat flakes. It has a intense aroma of caramel and coffee. Taste is sweet, with roastiness, hints of coffee and caramel and a long sweet finish.
Sweet stout is an style originally developed in England, first known as milk or cream stouts—althought that name was later forbidden in the UK. It is a beer characterized by the use of lactose in order to make it sweeter and smoother than the typical stout or Imperial Stout. Sweetness is ballanced by the roastiness of malts and bitterness of hops. Another variation of sweet stout uses oatmeal as sweetener, resulting in a fuller beer.
