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.

metalhead0043 (207) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2013
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.

Kind of a boring offering from one of the best their is! Beautiful black pour w/ a retaiiing tan head that leaves some lacing. Faint notes of chocolate & dark malt in the aroma. The taste is a touch thin, a tad bitter, & a slightly roasty in the finish. Certainly drinksble but I expect so much more from these guys!

olio (8881) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 25, 2016
Tap @ Konttori.
Pours dark brown color with a thick beige head. Roasted malts and oat on the nose, subtle chocolaty notes, faint cocoa. Silky smooth, creamy palate, otay and malts on the taste, mellow fruit notes on the background, cocoa powder. Very pleasant, served too chilly though, makes this quite watery, gets better as it warms up.
