Brewed by:
Founders Brewing Company
Michigan, United States

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.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

nitro tap at sams in Durham. snifter.

pours a gorgeous layered black, then grey then white. 3 distinct colors. smell is mild, not much. taste is smooth, chocolately and very malty. high carbonation. easy drinking.

overall nothing amazing, but an extremely easy drinking stout. the body is a tad too light, but other than that very good.

Got this a Crunchy's, was served in a pint, off nitro tap.

A: Is a opaque black color, with burgundy tinges with a lasting tan head along with good amounts of lacing.

S: Smells of chocolate, barley, malts, toffee, oatmeal, coffee, spices, herbs, woods

T: Tastes delicious, oatmeal is quite present in addition to the coffee, toffee, barley, malt flavors. Has an earthy feel to it.

M: Full bodied beer with medium carbonation, very robust and fulfilling.

O: Overall this was good beer, though I enjoyed Founder's other stouts more than this one, but its a stand up brew. Recommended by me.
