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.

Draught@Founders Brewer Night of The Pony Bar, NYC
Dark ruby, almost opaque color, steady brown head. Light toasted aroma has dark chocolate. Light-bodied. Toasted, coffeish, a bit ashy oatmeal stout with soft but weak palate. Must be stunner with right food.

574deadzone (1027) - North Central, Indiana, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Nitro pour at the source. Creamy and full bodied, but not too heavy. Some light chocolate, a touch of coffee to the nose. Very dark pour with the cascading creamy nitro head. Some hoppy bitterness in there too. Solid oatmeal stout, and a good session brew.

SurnameLevi (6) - Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2012 does not count
On tap at Founders. Black with a light tan head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate, little bit of a caramel note too. Taste was primarily chocolate, very creamy and smooth. Beautiful lacing that covered the inside of the glass. This was very tasty for a low abv nitrogen dispensed beer.

BMan1113VR (7854) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 12, 2012
On tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Pours with a near black body and a lasting tan head that leaves great lace behind. Aromas are roasty, coffee, espresso. Coffee forward, but a bit of a dry and chalky note. Flinty. Flavors are of coffee, bready, nougat, nutty, and cereal grainy. Smooth, malty and bready. Good stuff.

Strykzone (4913) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Very dark but clear with some red. A thick light tan head survives to the bottom. Nice tan lacing. The nose is coffee with chocolate. But the next sniff is oatmeal. The flavor is really muted, nitro style. But a bit of cocoa peeks through. Good and the Guinness lovers will like it. But I want some un-muted.

neuromatt (1140) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2011
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours black with a moderate-sized nitro head. The head remains and leaves lots of dense lace. The nose has plenty of sweet, roasty malts, along with grain, earth and a hint of hops. The flavour is moderately sweet throughout with roasty elements, earth and hints of coffee and smoke. The finish is moderate in length with roasty malts. On the palate, it is full in body, with a creamy thick texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice moderately sweet roasty nitro oatmeal stout. The nitro inhibits the aroma a bit. 2011-08-16

nitro draft at brewpub. aroma is dog food, tough roast, top soil. even through nitro head nose is detectable and delectable. appearance is opaque, cascades as typical, foam cap. milkshake legs out of control. flavor is same earthy notes from aroma plus milk chocoate at times to boot. mouthfeel is ultra thin and super drinkable.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Tap at the brewpubs. Nice note of roasted malt with this nitro deep black stout. Light coffee and cocoa notes allows the dry stout to show off the grains and the oat definition.
