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.

Bulk_Carrier (3884) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - OCT 21, 2016
On tap at Vermont Tap House, Williston, VT. This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a black color with a one and a half fingered off white to almond colored head with a nice slow dissipation. Light lace. The aroma started off with sweet to roasty coffee bean to sly milk chocolate malts. Some toastiness slides in for a nice balance. The flavor falls down on all of those previously mentioned aromas, and blends together the roast to the sweet, bringing about a warm bittersweet sharp aftertaste fully feeling it’s effects in the finish. On the palate, light to medium bodied with a nice sessionability about it. Low carbonation helps milky glossiness creating superb creaminess. Overall, what a damn nice oatmeal stout, so would have this again.

on tap @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Aroma of dark malt. Clear, deep ruby black color, smooth deep tan 1" head, curtain of lace. Taste is creamy, chewy, malt that adds chocolate in a lightly fizzed swallow, then light bittering as it floats through a long finish. A terrific light Stout.
