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.

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.
