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.

DrSilverworm (5917) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Taster on tap at Crunchy’s. Nitro pour. Dark brown, near black color. Nice half-inch darker nitro-type khaki head. Good, thicker lace. Light body. Smooth, creamy carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Good oatmeal, light roast, light coffee, some milk chocolate. Moderate bitter taste, moderate sweet. Solid oatmeal stout.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Nitro pour at Sam’s, Durham. Necessary dial-down after some heavy hitters were passed around. Weirdly chilly damp August day made this appealing. Nice pour, healthy inky black with loads of silk on top. Nose is quite soft, mellow choc, mild bittering notes. Taste is similar but adds just a touch of brine, interestingly enough. Hit the spot, even if not especially complex.

nimbleprop (4543) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 14, 2013
16oz pint at Galaxy Hut. Pours a thick black with some creamy white head. Nose has a ton of roasted barley, a little dark chocolate, toast, nuts. Flavor is mostly roasty, toast, brown bread, chocolate. Missing the silkiness of the oats. A little too much coffee/roasted character. Dry finish. Good, but like many others out there.

RABinCO (1140) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Draft on nitro. Pours a nice viscous brown. Thick tan head. Chocolate and roasted aroma with hints of vanilla. Taste is the same. Creamy mouthfeel, especially with the nitro.

PhillyCraft (3073) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Sample at Kraftwork. Pours black with small to medium beige head. Pretty meaty for an oatmeal stout. Roasted almonds, bacon fat, chocolate, roasty malts, and coffee bean. Thin bodied.

kaser (2498) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2013
This is their Nitro. On tap at Local Option. Black pour with creamy white head. Looks thick but isn't. Can smell the nitro. Light chocolate taste. Not getting oatmeal. Hate to say it - but kind of reminds me of a guiness. The trade off for a lower ABV I guess but very drinkable

deaconmike (360) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2013
On tap at Taco Mac. Almost black with ruby tint at the edges. Big thick creamy tan head that persists. Lots of nice lacing. Aroma is roasted malt and a hint of chocolate. Nice malty flavor, not overly sweet; some bitterness and dryness kicks in as well. Body is creamy, but also slghtly on the light side. This beer goes down smooth. Overall, a very enjoyable stout.
