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.

Pours black with tan head and nice lacing. Aroma of smoke, toasted bread, chocolate, and popcorn. Not what I expected. Taste is toffee, dish water, and barley. A little thin.

Somehow this has eluded me. On tap at tap and mallet - founders vs. southern tier. Score 1 for founders. For a low alcohol beer, this rocks. In a goblet, rich full oily palate. Classic chocolate and coffee characteristics. A bit light maybe but very nice.

On tap at Triangle Wine Co. Pours black with a light tan colored head. Aroma is sweet, bready and slightly malty. Tastes like slight chocolate and oatmeal, kind of watery too though. Body was much thinner than I like. Slightly creamy but not really enough to make up for how thin and watery it tasted. This is the first beer from Founders that I have come away from highly unimpressed.

Caytinator (939) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 11, 2013
1/2 pint on the nitro tap. Opaque bastard, black. Good lacing, big collar, persistent little head... nice rounded oatmeal taste, nutty and a bit bitter, too. I like the nitro carbonation with this one (especially since itís served at a sensible temperature) and the beer had a pleasant full mouthfeel. Hard to dislike, but not a standout either, Iím afraid.

Draft at Proof. Black pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma of bitter chocolate and roasted malts. Light, creamy palate with a bitter chocolate and roasted maltiness. Nice drinker and pretty tasty.

DialSquare (2619) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2013
On tap at Proof. Black pour, big brown head. Aroma is roasty, burnt, chocolate. Tastes are dark chocolate, coffee, bittersweet, roasted. Creamy, chalky palate. 7.4

GTAEgeek (1202) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2013
On tap at Leonís. Dark, nearly black pour, with a huge nitro frothy head. The aroma is immediate dark chocolates and coffee, with some unpleasant burnt bread. The flavor is very sweet, with a little sour and bitter notes in the finish. Medium body, a little cream, and astringent. Overall, this is a slightly disappointing stout.

jbruner (2297) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Pours an opaque brownish black on tap with fluffy cream head. Aroma of roasted malt and dark chocolate. Tate follows, roasty with a hint of sweetness. Good stuff, thin but substantial.

Huge creamy tan head that lasted forever. Full bodies and almost smokey flavor. Absolutely delicious. Very low alc..only complaint.

Had on tap at their place in Grand Rapids. This is a great stout. Lots of chocolate and roasted malts. Very drinkable.
