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 (6750) - 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 (1736) - 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 (1993) - 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.

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. FatPhil (17078) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 10, 2016

Roasty aroma, fairly pleasant. Totally watery palate. Taste too is watery, some roast behind that. Pretty crap stout, this wasn’t worth the money at all. Even a can of guinness would have been better than this.
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. Theydon_Bois (20621) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2016
