Notes & Commercial Description:

McGovern's Oatmeal Stout is a very dark, full-bodied stout with a smooth, moderate bitterness and roasted malt character. Integral parts of this stout include its subtle chocolate and caramel flavors. Hops also provide a subtle aroma and flavor without overpowering McGovern's overall balance. The milky, caramel colored head has small, tight, foamy bubbles that slowly cascade into the dark. aromatic liquid thanks to its oatmeal heritage.

Oatmeal also gives McGovern's a richer, full bodied quality with-out the bitter, burnt after-tasty often associated with stouts and other dark beers. This makes for a smoother drinking experience, especially for those who plan to enjoy more than one. Bartender Important - When pouring McGovern's Oatmeal Stout on draft, use any tap faucet with regular bar gas for best results. A traditional restrictor faucet cannot be used.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance: Pours a deep black with a one-finger tan head that dissipates quickly. Minimal lacing. Looks really dark and full bodied.

Aroma: Smells of black coffee, dark chocolate, oatmeal, and roasted malt. Some hop bitterness, too.

Taste: The coffee flavor is really forward. The oatmeal is definitely there - it kind of tastes like an extra-smooth coffee stout. Tasty stuff. Lots of flavor. Some nice bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Super smooth, as an oatmeal stout should be. Very full bodied stout. I'd call it a sipper.

Overall: This is a big, sturdy stout to enjoy on its own or with a good meal. Definitely a good pick-up for fans of coffee stouts and oatmeal stouts.
