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.

Very dark. Head stays. Some coffee notes but very acidic. Not a strong aroma. Not on the top of my oatmeal stout list.

Industry public house in Robinson. I'm a huge founders breakfast Stout fan, so I had to try this one. I do get the oatmeal taste and smoothness. However, I don't get much else from this. I think my taste buds are going bad:-(

T: Roasty, toasty bready malt, earthy, a hint of dark fruit, and a little toffee sweetness.

M: Medium body, mild carbonation, creamy smooth.
