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 appeal—and the body and clean flavor deliver on that initial promise.

Nitro on tap at founder
Look: deep brown with a think creamy head that lasts for quite a while
Smell: super marly, black licorice, bread
Taste: roasty malt, bitterness on the finish
Feel: thin creamy feel, light,
Overall: nice. Pleasant light ABV brew - nothing really jumps out as exceptional but also nothing really to knock either

Nitro tap. Super roasty with tons of flavor. Drinks way above its ABV. Tons of charred malt, chocolate, and wood. A great beer on a cold night and truly delicious, emphasizing the strength of oats in a dark beer. Fans of stouts will appreciate the full flavor and rich feel.

Pours a deep mahogany with a 2 finger tan head. Lacing was present throughout.

Mild coffee smell with a faint oatmeal aroma. Taste is coffee/chocolate/malt with a smooth feel.

Very enjoyable.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a nearly pitch black color with a one finger head of off-white colored foam. The nitro driven head has a great level of retention and slowly fades over time to leave rings of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is strongest of an oatmeal and roasted malt smell. Mixed with these aromas are a little bit of crème and vanilla and a hint of an earthy and herbal hop.
Taste – The taste begins with a very smooth oatmeal and nicely toasted and roasted malt flavor with hints of cocoa and caramel. The roasty and oatmeal flavors create a base flavor for the taste and remain strong throughout. The caramel and the cocoa fade a bit as the taste advances and are replaced by some flavors of a very light earthy hop, some very light coffee and a hint of char. At the very end comes some crème and a bit of herb, leaving one, for a 4.5 % abv brew, with a nice smooth and robust roasted oatmeal taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – With the nitro pour the body of the brew is silky, creamy and smooth with a very rich overall feel. For the dark roasted, and oatmeal tastes the feel is fantastic and accentuates the rich tastes even with the lower abv.
Overall – This is a fantastic presentation of a dry oatmeal stout. It is lower in abv (great for sessioning) big in flavor, very easy drinking, and super smooth in feel. A very well done brew overall!!

I had this on nitro at the Gingerman.

Pours a deep dark mahogany bordering black with a light brown head.

In the nose it has earthy notes, roasted nuts, dark bread, and coffee.

In the mouth is dark coffee up front, followed by molasses and roasted nuts. It finishes dry and slightly woody despite maintaining its creamy smooth mouthfeel.
