BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Belfast Bay Brewing Co.
Maine, United States | website

Style: Oatmeal Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

Availability: Year-round

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.
