The product
Dirty Stop Out is a smoked oat stout from Newport brewery Tiny Rebel. This 5% ABV has a bit of a buzz behind it, picking up the title of Champion Beer of Wales at the Great Welsh Beer & Cider Festival in June. Does the bottled version, which has been available for around six months, have the clout to match the reputation.

The verdict:
Oat stouts don’t necessarily taste oaty, but they bring extra fats and proteins which up the viscosity, making them a chewier than your average stout. And Dirty Stop Out has texture to spare – it has a tongue-coating thickness, like gargling with porridge. The smokiness is low, more of a subtle flavour enhancer than a taste on its own, which lends extra grit to an already earthy ale. It’s an impressive drink.
