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.

On tap at Triangle Wine Co. Pours black with a light tan colored head. Aroma is sweet, bready and slightly malty. Tastes like slight chocolate and oatmeal, kind of watery too though. Body was much thinner than I like. Slightly creamy but not really enough to make up for how thin and watery it tasted. This is the first beer from Founders that I have come away from highly unimpressed.

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.

BMMillsy (1430) - Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2014
On nitro at World of Beer Tioga (Gainesville, FL). Pours pitch black with a beautiful creamy espresso head on top. Aroma of next to nothing here, maybe some lightly roasted malts, water, that’s it. Flavor follows incredibly bland, watered down roast with very little else going on. Thin mouthfeel even for nitro--which always comes off thin to me, despite the silkiness--and low carbonation. Overall, I would take this over Guinness, but it’s just not my style. What’s the point? I’d just rather drink water and save the liver.

mrhopsbeertalk (144) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 25, 2014
The aroma suprisingly lactic with minor notes of chocolate and toasted malt. The flavor is more predictably malt forward, smokey, coffee and chocolate with a toasty creamy mouth feel.

On tap at Town Hall. Pours a clear near black with light passing as a barely visible reddish hue when backlit. Aroma is grain, baker’s chocolate, and malt sweetness. Flavor is same with roasted malt and bitter chocolate within the context of a nitro mouthfeel. Overall smooth and sweet. Slight chocolate milk notes. Creamy full body, nitro carbonation. Solid.
