An oatmeal stout has been part of the Banks oeuvre ever since the early Mr Banks days, these days appearing as their cool weather seasonal Night Moves. The name is highly appropriate too: if you come across a stout more black with a darker brown head under 5.5 percent ABV this winter then you'll have done well.
There's plenty of freshly ground coffee bean and high couverture chocolate in keeping with the appearance, not to mention a touch of leather, a velvety body and a dry, roasty finish. An autumn sweater in a glass.
