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 appealóand the body and clean flavor delivers on that initial promise.

On tap, poured into a shaker. It actually wasnít on nitro when I had it, but I couldnít find a listing for Founderís Oatmeal Stout, and didnít want to create a new beer. The aroma is mellow and mild with notes of cookies, coffee, and chocolate. It pours a dark brown black with a tan, big soapy head that reduces to a thick ring with a messy surface, and it leaves a messy lace. The taste is a medium sweet with a very light bitter. The texture is thin, with a medium-light body, and a smooth, creamy carbonation. The flavors are mostly a coffee chocolate blend with some grains at the finish and a roasted note as well. Itís pretty clean and kinda dry with a light cookie-like linger to the aftertaste.

Pint at Glass Nickel. The steady creamy beige head accentuates the soft mouthfeel. Coffee, cocoa. A touch more depth than a typical nitro Stout. Classic. Well done.

On nitro at World of Beer Tioga (Gainesville, FL). Pours pitch black with a beautiful creamy espresso head on top. Aroma of next to nothing here, maybe some lightly roasted malts, water, thatís it. Flavor follows incredibly bland, watered down roast with very little else going on. Thin mouthfeel even for nitro--which always comes off thin to me, despite the silkiness--and low carbonation. Overall, I would take this over Guinness, but itís just not my style. Whatís the point? Iíd just rather drink water and save the liver.

Single finger head. Dark pour. Light mouth, yet creamy at the same time. Taste is light. Oats. Light and refreshing. Not overly sweet. Bitter finish provides balance.
