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.

Pours dark and creamy. Taste is bland. Compared to Wolvers Oatmeal Stout or the best Samuel Smith's it doesn't make the grade for $10.00 a 6 pack. Not going to try it again unless I'm desperate.

Delicious oatmeal stout. Pours a dark brown/near black with a billowy tan/off-white head. Left a fair amount of lacing on the glass. Taste was malty, slightly sweet, hint of chocolate, smooth -- very refreshing stout. Light & very easy to drink.

Really smooth, maybe too smooth? For a stout anyway. Good though.

Black pour (as far as I can tell); no light will pass. Thick head, but it settles to a thin layer of bubbles. Limited lace considering: an odd combination of web and blanket lace.

Nutty and dark chocolate are the first impressions. A bit chalky and a touch cream to the nose.

Very much like a dry Irish stout, this has a bit more cream. Chewy body, but with a good carbonation level. Richer body than most stouts, the carbonation is similar to nitrogen fed beers. The flavor is of burnt malts and bitter chocolate. Full bodied with nitro-inspired bubbles.
