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.

Pours a pitch black color with a thin creamy light brown head. Appealing aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor also has the chocolate / roasted malt combo but it feels weaker than in the aroma. The body is light while the carbonation is moderate.

theisti (3175) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Nitro draft at Pig and Finch in Leawood, Kansas. The pour is black, with a creamy light tan head. The aroma is roast, bit of softly sweet cocoa and a general grain smell. The taste is a nice blend of the roast, the sweet cocoa and the grain of the oatmeal. Quite smooth, a bit creamy, generally pleasant to drink. The palate is medium bodied, the nitro gives it the creaminess, and the roast dries out the finish nicely. Easy drinking, nice one.

Draft on nitro. Blah blah nitro cascade thick head. Slightly grainy nose. Thick and full and creamy mouthfeel. Not bad for the price.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Had a portion of a pint at Founders. Appearance: Nitro stouts can never do no wrong. Looks gorgeous. Black with a tan head. Very good looking lacing. Smell: Chocolate. Roast. Coffee. Nothing complicated. Taste/feel: Chocolate. Roast. Coffee. Definitely a lighter beer, as the feel is thin, yet creamy. Is that possible? Apparently so. It just has a light flavor that lets you know it’s a low ABV, but it still packs a nice little punch. Excellent for what it is. This stuff ought to be bottled or something, because this would be a damn fine sessionable stout.

arkurzynski (1468) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Nitro tap at Dublin’s. Black coffee pour. Nose of deep roasted malt and espresso. Flavor is coffee, roast malt, cocoa, and a bit of cream sweetness. Nice creamy mouthfeel between the oats and nitro. Very light, easy drinking stout.

jefcon (1357) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2013
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.

tectactoe (1443) - Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2013
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.
