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 draft to pint at Founders. Looks good; settles into a slightly translucent dark cola with creamy off-white nitro head. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, roast, and a touch of oats. Tastes like it smells with what seems like a touch of smoke as well. Smooth and creamy on the palate. Decent, but overrated IMO.

Draft. Black with a tight mocha head. Aroma is char and roasted malt. The taste follows and adds a hint of earthy hops on the finish. Smooth creamy feel. Incredibly clean finish. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(nitro @ Founders Brewing Company - Grand Rapids, MI) Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Very lightly roasted aroma, not much hint of oatmeal. Flavor is pretty much the same. Light roast but not much oatmeal or chocolate. A bit mild and thin.

Tejas (936) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 Draught > Libertine Bar. Taste fine, palate is great but it's just too small. I don't need a 9% stout but 4.5% is just too small.

obguthr (4765) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Draft: Bakers’ chocolate and medium roast coffee nose. Black, medium tan head, cascading carbonation, good lacing. Soil with very subtle moss and coffee notes. Creamy, but a tad astringent. Founders does nitrogenated beers very well, perhaps the best in the US. This beer would not be nearly as good on CO2.

ARH (911) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2014 On tap, poured into a shaker. The aroma is initially strong raisin but then turns mellow and mild with notes of cookies, coffee, and chocolate. It pours a dark brown black with a tan, big soapy head that reduces to a thick ring with a messy surface, and it leaves a messy lace. The taste is a medium sweet with a very light bitter. The texture is thin, with a medium-light body, and a smooth, creamy carbonation. The flavors are mostly a coffee chocolate blend with some grains at the finish and a roasted note as well. It?s pretty clean and kinda dry with a light cookie-like linger to the aftertaste.

On nitro at River Rd Tavern with Todd Feels a lot like a dry stout but that could be the nitro treatment, Creamy roasty with hints oft cereal and lightly sweet

Pint at Glass Nickel. The steady creamy beige head accentuates the soft mouthfeel. Coffee, cocoa. A touch more depth than a typical nitro Stout. Classic. Well done.
