Served in a shaker pint glass at Tap House - Palatine.

Figured I'd grab a quick pint at this new Tap House, and I realized I've never had this particular Founders brew before. Done. It pours a straight murky onyx topped by a finger of tan foam. The nose comprises mild roasted malts, cocoa powder, and a touch of vanilla bean in the background. The taste brings in more of the same, though now the vanilla is replaced by a bit of treacle. The body is a solid medium, with a nice nitrogenation and a subsequently velvety feel. Overall, a nice, by-the-numbers oatmeal stout. Not bad at all.
