bigtaster (526) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2009
Pours black with great think tan head that hangs around for a while, lots of lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate and some roasted malts. The beer is medium to thick body with a great dark chocolate taste and also bitterness similar to dark chocolate, some sweetness to balance it out and relatively drinkable. Lacks the complexity and originality that Iím used to from Founders but a good beer.

Very good oatmeal stout. One of the best out there in my oppinion. Real smooth and creamy with good aroma and flavor.

Nice after dinner or dessert beer. Black with no head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and roast malt. Taste is similar with some hops in there. Good stuff.

HonkeyBra (3108) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Sampled at the brew pub about 6 months ago. This was my favorite beer I had at founders. Looked great, taste great, with all the right coffee, chocolately, creamy notes. Pretty good, try it if you’re ever in Grand Rapids.

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 23, 2008
Way good. Pours like Guiness from the tap and maintains the same consistency on the palate, but there’s a unique presence of coffee and cream, very similar to Kahlua, here that makes it highly enjoyable to drink.

Creamy Nitrogen head makes this an excellent stout, but forbids you to leave the building with it. This would be highly acclaimed if it could reach a greater audience. For now you’ll have to stop in at the brewery. To the beer, its full of malt and subtle oatmeal. If you appreciate Guinness, than this is a must. Dark light body with double heavy cream head. Watching the malts fall is a show in itself.

drewbeerme (3869) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2010 on nitro tap at the Founders brewpub. pours black with reverse cascading creamy off white head. nose is mildly roasty with milk chocolate. dry chocolate and mild roast. creamy body that leaves a watery finish on the palate. not much of a hop character here. Good example of the style on nitro.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2008
In short: A typical and slightly above average nitro Oatmeal Stout. Pretty decent and highly drinkable but nothing special
How: Tap (nitro) at brewpub
The look: Black body with a long-lasting large tan head
In long: Again Founders have done a good job in packing a lot of malts into a beer. However this one just isnít very tasty especially compared to their Porter and Vanilla Porter I had just before. Smooth round body, distant black chocolate, nitro carbonation creates a superb pillowy mouthfeel but it also softens out the finish too much. Itís better put together than most other oatmeal stout but itís nothing you havenít had many times before, especially if you go to Founderís and drink a pint of their Oatmeal Stout every week.
