Creamy and thick. Flat. Bitter. A little bland.

Very similar to Guinness Stout, though perhaps a little more bitter....

Enjoyed it a BBQ place in Boston....

On nitro, not going to review the nitro listing cause these are the same beer. You don't need a different listing for every type of serving.

A: Pours dark black, that is not quite opaque. Some ruby brown around the edges. A tan head that rises with that cascading look that all nitro taps give.
S: Bland. Just a bit of bitter roast. Day old, cold coffee. Nothing is really here.
T: Again, bland as can be. Except for a bitter roasted finish. More, bad old coffee than anything.
M/D: What feel? Lifeless, artificial, thin. Blah. I did not enjoy this at all. The nitro has done a wonderful job of killing any kind of oatmeal stout that might be here.

I had to do it...give it a try. Who knows if one of my favorite breweries could change my mind or not? If nothing else to reaffirm that nitro is such a waist of good beer. Maybe there is an actual oatmeal stout lingering somewhere? I can't tell however, cause there is no character at all.

Drank this on-tap at the source in Grand Rapids, MI. Pours dark, nearly black in color. Small head. Its a smooth, easy-drinking, tasty beer. One of my go-to beers when I'm at Founder's Brewery, but I dont think I've ever bought this in bottled form.

Beautiful stout, but I had issues getting a decent head when pouring.
