Abbreviation of "Middle Aged Man On The Toot", meaning a man that goes to the pub often and drinks heavily.

Many 40-50 year-old blokes spent much of their youth in pubs. Since that time, many traditional public houses have either closed(1) or been turned into trendy gastro-establishments or brash, loud bars. MAMOTTs are part of a trend where drinkers are returning to their roots, seeking out quieter bars, often with "real ale" offerings, and are starting to rebuild a traditional pub culture.

This trend is increasingly being acknowledged in social science research circles, for example by Dr Lyn Brierley-Jones of Sunderland University where MAMOTTs are perfectly described in the "traditional" drinker classification(2).
