Founders Brewing Company
Michigan, United States

Style: Oatmeal Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A Founders take on a classic style, brewed with a generous amount of flaked oats, chocolate malt, roasted barley and a healthy helping of Nugget hops, Founders Oatmeal Stout is nitrogen-infused to give it an extra smooth and creamy mouthfeel. An attractive cascade effect gives this beer its forthright visual appeal—and the body and clean flavor deliver on that initial promise.

A-rich brown with a creamy light tan head

S-faint flavor of fresh oatmeal and cocoa. Some roast to it.

T-comes in with a burnt taste, one that sticks to the tongue. There's just a small hint of cocoa and oatmeal to it, has mostly the roasted flavor. It's a good flavor with a math king after-taste. Not very strong though. It's a subtle taste.

M-nitro. But has more of a dry mouthfeel than creamy.

O-it's a good, easy drinking stout from founders. You might not expect more from a typical oatmeal stout, but you'd definitely expect more from a typical founders beer. It's not even something i can recommend to anyone. It made for an enjoyable afternoon drink though.
