From growler...imagine it wouldve been nice and creamy on nitro, still was out of the growler but had more potential, huge aroma of malt vanilla and coffee, flavor of roast, chocolate malt, nut flavors. Would love to try on Nitro.

Pours a dark mahogany with a foamy, long-lasting white head. This is very similar to the Founder’s Oatmeal Stout, but it’s sweeter and has a hazelnut coffee aroma and flavor in addition to the roasted malts. Goes down smooth. Excellent.

Nitro pour. Aroma is hazelnut, coffee, roasted malt, surprisingly robust for a 4.2% brew. Appearance is what you expect from a low abv stout, dark dark dark brown, great nitro head of light brown. Taste is nice, light but again surprisingly robust. Hazelnut is prevalent, the other characteristics fall back but it’s light. Mouthfeel is great, the nitro helps and the flavor hangs. Overall, this is quite impressive for a low abv beer.

HonkeyBra (3113) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a rich dark blackish color with a tan head. Aroma of hazelnuts, coffee, vanilla, cocoa. Flavor is unbelievable. The hazelnut coffee combined with the delicious cocoa and roastiness of the stout achieves a near flavor perfection. Almost unexpected. Medium bodied, pillowy body, nice carbonation. Overall, one of the best tasting beer experiences in my life.

Bottle courtesy of "hannont". Colour...hazy, dark brown with a thick head. Nose...chiles (like, roasted chiles), buttered movie theatre popcorn, coffee and burnt filberts. Palate...very bitter, semi dry and loaded with filberts! That chile and popcorn thing comes back and so does the coffee. Man this stuff is bitter!

Had this on draft at founders tap room. Crazy foamy whipped cream like head. Crazy chocolate and coffee aroma. Sweet. Marshmallows. Wow. A desert

On tap at the brewery -- December 29, 2010. Pours a hazy dark brown color with a really hefty nitro-derived head with some really amazing retention time and quite a bit of lacing as it goes down. On the initial whiff of this I was already upset that it was on nitro and I wouldn’t be able to grab a growler. Strong notes of coffee and hazelnut. Wow. A bit of chocolate and roast there as well. Can’t get enough of the coffee and hazelnut, which headed straight into the taste, though that was a bit more roasty and similar to the base beer without the sweetness of the nose. The mouthfeel was really nice and smooth. Drinkability is through the roof. Hands down the best oatmeal stout I’ve ever had. Serving type: nitro-tap Reviewed on: 01-02-2011

On tap at founders pub. Black with a nice frothy, nitro like tan head. aroma is sweet coffee and cream with hints of hazelnut and French vanilla. Taste is similar and is just like drinking a frap. Smooth and thin on the palate. Good
