Mission Springs Brewing Co. – Fat Guy Oatmeal Stout Review
The Mission Spring Brewing Company has released an Oatmeal Stout called the Fat Guy and it is a close to black in colour beer. The head is around a finger’s thickness and off white in colour. The smells are of a hearty and thick beer with notes of chocolate and toasted malt. The taste is quite light and almost airy in texture. The flavour is still dark and stout-esque but the overall feeling is rather light on the tongue. A minute amount of hop joins the dark, lightly toasted, chocolatey flavour for a drinkable, enjoyable and rather mellow Oatmeal Stout. Lighter than most in flavour and a mellow 4.5% ABV this may not pluck the strings of the thrill-seeking craft beer connoisseur but it is a very easy drinking, mellow and rather nice tasting Oatmeal Stout.
