On nitro at Capone's.

Never had this one before, so I figured I'd give it a try. Nice nitro-pour, obsidian color with a thick, creamy, tan head that sank to about a quarter inch and held there, lacing the glass as I sipped. Pretty basic aroma, roasty dark malts, toasted oatmeal. Basically the same in the taste, dark malts, toasted oats, unsweetened chocolate giving a light bitterness. A good brew, even if there's nothing here you haven't had before. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, thanks to Mr. Nitrogen. A pretty basic brew, but still good. Doesn't really stack up to Founders' other stouts, but it's a solid base beer.

Pours a near black color with a fairly short dense creamy head that settled into a pretty creamy cap.

The aroma is a bit light but I do pick up the Founders stout flavors. Nice earthy, woody malt with a hint of char. A touch of chocolate and coffee.

The taste is of a very light roast, nice woody flavors. A hint of chocolate and coffee. Toasted bready malt; pumpernickle. Good flavors but a bit weak.

The feel light to moderate with semi soft carbonation. Drinks very smooth. Good balance. Definitely the little sister compared to Founder's other stouts. Sessionable ABV.

Tastes more like a beefy brown ale than a stout but thats ok. Nice flavors but are pretty weak. Good sessionable stout.

Founders Oatmeal Stout

Enjoyed on tap at the Sugar Maple on 1/25/14. Served in a nonick Sierra Nevada pint glass, at appropriate temp.

A) Kind of dark brown to hazel colored brew, with a big creamy tan head. Love the way a nitro poured beer looks... So delicious...

S) Roasted malt, light coffee, hint of chocolate. A little hint of bitterness from the Nugget hops.

T) The flavor is pretty close to the nose. You get some of the oats, which enhance it a bit. Perhaps a little nutty as well. A little sweeter than the aroma let on, with bitterness on the backend.

M) Lighter medium body... The nitro creaminess you'd expect. It is pretty soft, and goes down easy. Slightly dry on the finish.

O) I'm kind of a sucker for nitro taps. This was really nice... Easy drinking, with a nice flavor. You could definitely pound down a few pints of this given the 4.5% ABV. I'd go for this one again.
