A re-review, a retrospective if you will. 12oz pour in the Founder's Taproom from a nitro-tap on 18 April 2014.

A: Inky black-brown body, no light gets through this. Lot's of bubbles, and a creamy head, one finger, excellent retention, light tan color. Significant lacing.

S: Lots of roasted malts, scents of chocolate and coffee. Sweet aromas abound.

T: Roasted malts and toasty, biscuity flavor, clearly sweet. The oats and creaminess make the flavors incredibly smooth and combined. Finishes with a nice hop bitterness to even out the sweetness up front, but not strongly hopped.

M: Medium body, gentle carbonation. Creamy. Crisp finish.

O: Tasty oatmeal stout. Enjoyable to drink, slightly heavy. Could easily be a go to for accompanying a steak or burger. The lower 4.5% abv makes this an easily drinkable beer that accompanies food or good conversation.

A - Black, nitro pour tan head has good retention and lacing.

S/T - Mild, with oats, light roasted malt and mildly bitter roasted grains.

M - Light body, creamy smooth texture at first, then turns a little watery, expected with the nitro pour. Finishes clean.

O - Nice lunch session beer, with mild flavors. I could drink a few of these easy.

On nitro tap at 2 Bros. Pours a dark brownish black color with over an inch of thick brown head. Good amount of lacing. The aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and earth. Taste is a lot like the aroma. Roasty and lightly smokey with dark chocolate. Light hints of sweet vanilla and oatmeal. Slight dark chocolate bitterness but it's a sweet beer overall. Caramel and toasted malts at the finish. Has that nice velvety and creamy mouthfeel you expect from nitro. Overall, I'm glad I got to try this on nitro and would like to have a chance to try the regular version. Worth looking for.

Founders Oatmeal Stout

Nitrooo

Poured into pint glass

A: Porter black not quite stout black but still black

S: Typical for the style . . . Roasted

T: This is a tasty sessionable stout. I'll go wiith "typical" again. Not too often I have a stout that is not Russian Imperial so that might be throwing me off a bit. It is tasty but the flavor just doesn't deliver for me right up front but . . . but . . . It is tasty, it does linger and makes me want another sip.

M: A bit thin but I just might not be used to these "non imperial stouts"

O: Rather tasty really . . . I believe I'll have another

Serving type: on-tap
