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 delivers on that initial promise.

Nitro draft at Trinity Brass Tap. Pours a midnight black with a dense, creamy foamed tan head. Some islands of foamy lacing along the glass, but not a solid sheet like you see with some other nitro stouts. Aroma has nice roasted malt notes with hints of oatmeal and black chocolate. Flavor is slightly sweetheart up front with a subtle hop bitterness in the finish. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. A very nice and easy drinking stout.

nitro pour...dark brown with a medium creamy tan head...excellent lacing and retention. aroma has some dark chocolate and roast...a bit subdued by the tight nitro head. flavor has great dark chocolate...roasty bitterness. mouthfeel is medium and crearmy with a dry dark chocolate burnt/bitter finish. crushable.

boFNjackson (4100) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Nitro @ Redlight Redlight in Orlando, Fl... Poured pitch black with a thick forming, khaki head. Of course the nitro allowed for lots of lacing and retention. Silky mouthfeel, fair amount of bubble on the palate. Grains and roast with a mealiness character. Some charred and roasted malts with a hint of coffee and dark chocolate.

Draught on nitro. Pours a near-black color with a moderate tan pillowy head on it. Nose is roasty and with some grains coming through - I could really get the oatmeal in this one. Taste had some roasted coffee elements to it and was pretty smooth. Rather enjoyable.

On nitro. Pours black with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is full of oats. Very smooth, with notes of chocolate and oat. Finishes dry.

Draft from Coalhouse Pizza. Founders nailed it with this oatmeal stout. While some oatmeal stouts up the ante with the spice, dark fruit and sugar, this oatmeal stout quietly hints oats and brown sugar. The body of this brew is soft and pillowy and very enjoyable. While I find Founder’s IPAs to be too abrasive, I’ve grown to enjoy all of their stout/porter offerings.

Aurelius (4034) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Very stiff, tight, dense khaki head. Inky. Nice roast and coffee aroma, a little subdued. Nice, mellow, nutty roast, very lightly sweet. Great mouthfeel and overall very smooth. Buffered aftertaste. Excellent. Fermentation Lounge, sunny Friday before Labor Day with Triock.

Nitro pour. Black with frothy brown head. Pretty bland oatmeal and light sweet malt flavors, aroma is quite similar. Boring.

PorterPounder (5346) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - Fermentation Lounge - on tap. Nitro pour - thick head with a lot of action due to the nitro - fun to watch of course. Deep dark black pour. Aroma has some smoky accents, a hint of coffee. Flavor is bold with some roasted smoky notes, a touch of black coffee, some creosote notes. Nice chalky mouthfeel. Part of the Founder tap takeover welcoming this brewer to Florida. Solid stout, as expected.
