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 appealand 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.

Chocolate smoked aroma. The taste is also a mix of the sweet and bitter. Has notes of chocolate, roasted coffee and a light oatmeal. Ends is a creamy bitter dry.

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.

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%

Black body, ok head. Nose is softly coffee roast. Medium-bodied, creamy mouthfeel, tinny coffee notes. Wet roasty finish. Rather 2-dimensional

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!

Nitro Oatmeal Stout Chucks 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.

If only smooth and creamy were the sole requirements for a good beer. Not that Nitro Oatmeal isnt decent, but its 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.

Draft at YH - appearance is exactly like youd expect a nitro stout. Aroma of cold brew. Cocoa and coffee all over the tongue, creamy, a tad thin. Par.
