Style: Oatmeal Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Very dark. Head stays. Some coffee notes but very acidic. Not a strong aroma. Not on the top of my oatmeal stout list.

On nitro tap at Bill Gray's Seabreeze Taproom in Rochester, NY.

This one pours really pretty and nice, classic nitro look, cascading and dark, with a tight foamy head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like not much, roasted barley, some chocolate, pretty bland.

I can tell this would be way better on C02. The nitro kind of flattens it and gives a standard generic nitro stout taste, bitter malt and hops, a little bit of old coffee, and just a generic creaminess. It's certainly drinkable. But not tasty.

This has a thin and watery mouthfeel. It is creamy, though, so it's what they intended, I suppose.

Nitro beers are traditionally disappointing, and this is no exception.
