Great tasting but taste as in flavor not as in a heavy meal. Pours black with some bubbly lacing at the top. Big malt aroma. Above all else it is very creamy but still drinkable. Roasted malt, dark chocolate, and just a touch of coffee flavor. The nitro-tap edition was similar with just a bit of carbonation which seems to bring on the hops a bit.
On tap @ The Mallard Club. This one looks to be pretty much black. The head is a nice creamy off-white color and thick. Roasted malts, earthy hops, coffee, and dark chocolate are present as you might expect. Has a mild sweetness with a nutty and ashy bitterness on the back end. It's pretty nice.

Tap. Lighter shade of dark brown, creamy light khaki head. Night the flavor and aroma are light. Some cocoa, bittersweet chocolate with some light roast and fain fruit sourness. Thin creamy body. Meh. voyageurmike (520) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2017

Founders is always good and this beer is no exception. The smell was faint and a little chocolatey. The appearance was a thick velvety brown black. The taste was magnificently smooth and decadent, like a smoosh of dark chocolate powder and coffee milk (rhode island style) with a truly luxurious mouthfeel. This one earned the non-trash water stamp of approval from my formerly stout hating better half. Good for middling on a night of beer reviews and classic rock and torturous hiccup activity topped off by a diffy peeps marathon. cmacklin (1371) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2017
On tap. Pours an opaque black with a medium, creamy, long lasting, tan head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and caramel. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and oats with a mild, bitter coffee finish. Light to medium body with a creamy, smooth texture and soft carbonation. Tasty.

Minus the nitro, this Oatmeal Stout drinks like a classic English Oatmeal Stout complete with rich flavors, a silky feel, and a modest ABV. Notes of chocolate, coffee, and cream. It’s a thing of beauty to watch it poured from the tap. Seeing the foam gradually give way to blackness is a damn hypnotic experience. This is a dark brew that won’t totally weigh you down on a hot day. psydtamales (82) - Anaheim, California, USA - JUN 5, 2017
Smooth, sweet, creamy, roasty, & kinda savory on the finish? Light notes of chocolate, easy to drink, solid. DSG (15403) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 30, 2017
[5/14/17] Draught at Taphouse in Copenhagen. Dark brown to black, creamy beige head. Roast, coffee, some smokiness, slightly sweetish, sourish note, bitter finish. Medium-bodied. LaserDave (34) - - MAY 21, 2017
A little bite. 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.
