Pours black into a shaker. Creamy tan head with excellent retention recedes leaving scant sheets. Resin and chocolate aromas. Soft with chocolate and espresso upfront turning to resin in the lasting finish. BuckeyeBoy (7543) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 15, 2017
On nitro tap at prefunk boise. Pours out a creamy black topped with a thick cream tan head. Nose is light roast a touch of chocolate and some ash. Taste is more of the nice light roast and chocolate. Very nice and smooth IndianaRed (4546) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 15, 2017
On Tap at the Prefunk Founders tap takeover Black, dense tan nitro head. Nice roasty aromas and flavors. Quite dry and thin. The nitro saves the palatte of this beer. Pretty good. Lots of good roast flavor for 4.5% BillKismet (4041) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2017

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2017 Nitro. Darkest brown color with tan head. Aroma is flakes, coffee, some dark malts. Taste is oatflakes, chocolate, but really lots of oatflakes. Incredibly silky mouthfeel, but a bit too watery. Nice! luttonm (6172) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Nitro Oatmeal Stout
Chuck’s 85th, Seattle. Super creamy, pretty tan nitro head. Brown edged, wet dark body. Warm Stout aroma. Smooth, creamy, modest bodied Oatmeal stout. Some nice crew. Dark chocolate, coffee roast, easy and smooth. Fantastic clean flavors, a little twist on the finish. Solid tasty stout. oobawa (1317) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 27, 2016
If only smooth and creamy were the sole requirements for a good beer. Not that Nitro Oatmeal isn’t decent, but it’s surprisingly tame for a Founders stout, roasty but thin, with a slight cherry tartness undermining the wanted mocha richness. Opens up as it warms, with a soothing bitterness leveling off the finish, but the mild licorice-chocolate fade could use more heft. Might end up raising my score...depends in how merry this pint leaves me. Andrew196 (1861) - Katy, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2016
Draft at YH - appearance is exactly like you’d expect a nitro stout. Aroma of cold brew. Cocoa and coffee all over the tongue, creamy, a tad thin. Par. evergreen0199 (3323) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2016
Keg at Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London. A black coloured pour with a thin beige head on top. Roasty, malty, chocolate aroma. Tastes roasty, malty, chocolate, rather thin and watery, expected a lot more from Founders to be honest.
