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 tap. The appropriate color and density. Lots of lacing. Oatmeal on the nose and palate. Not too long of a finish, and somewhat lacking in malt flavors like chocolate and coffee. Still, a nice pleasant hop pine to go along with the abundance of grains.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Nitro tap: very deep brown, nearly black body with a nice, creamy, micro bubble layer of tan foam; nice staying power, leaving awesome rings of lace behind. Aroma is muted cocoa nibs, light oat, some creamy sweetness, & a touch of coffee beans in the finish. Taste is nice & smooth with notes of semi-sweet cocoa, light cream, smooth baked oats, & a tiny bit of finishing coffee ground bitterness. Pretty nice, but I would like a bigger mouth feel.

On tap at the brewery. Nitro version. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Slight bitterness provides a kick. Nitro gives the beer a creamy mouthfeel. I give extra points for the low alcohol, strangely enough. Because of that, and the not overly heavy body, you can have a few of these and not fill your belly and/or topple over in a stupor.

On nitro at Barley’s, big creamy lasting cookie head on a black body, light roast, soft oat, mild chocolate, touch of dark fruit on the finish, pleasant and unmemorable

Ron (2685) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2013
On nitro at MacGregor’s in Hen... Pours thick, dark, unclear coffee with a huge creamy light cocoa head. Aroma some sweet, roasty, and smokey notes in the nose. Flavors bring huge roasted malts, sweet oats almost light nutty caramel. Body is so creamy and nice on nitro. Bartender forgot to place our food order in a timely fashion, so he refilled our half empty glasses for free.

dogfishho (599) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Pours dark and thin with a creamy white head from the nitro tap. On the nose, there are roasty chocolatey notes. On the palate the beer starts out with a sweet chocolate taste that’s quickly balanced out with a roasty astringency. Doesn’t have the typical oatmeal oiliness that I usually find, but this is still a nice full beer for a 4.5%er.

EtTuCthulhu (1132) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - NOV 9, 2013
This beer, when poured from a nitro tap, is an opaque black color with a long-lasting tan head, and the aroma blends roasted and chocolate malts with vanilla. The taste has a slight umami, mild sweetness, and a touch of sourness, and the palate combines a creamy and thick texture, full body, soft carbonation, and a long malty finish.
