BEER INFO

Brewed by:
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.

While incredibly smooth on account of the nitro tap, the mouthfeel was thin and watery without much flavor to speak of.

Tastes like Guiness, but not in a good way.

On tap @ Blue Dust

Appearance: Absolutely perfect look for a oatmeal stout. Dark Brown with a two to three finger creamy beige head

Smell: Slight yet clean roasted malt and chocolate notes

Taste: Similar to the nose; light and clean . perhaps a hint of smoke

Mouthfeel: Very light, creamy and smooth as expected. Nice slightly dry finish

Overall: about what i expected. A light, smooth and refreshing oatmeal stout. Not real much oatmeal character other than maybe the Mouthfeel. I could session this all day. Cheers Founders!!
