I really enjoy a good stout and was truly looking forward to trying this beer after reading all of the reviews and seeing the high ranking on BA. Finally had the opportunity to try it...
I'm not sure if the hype set my expectations too high or if I just had a weaker batch, but I found this stout to be quite plain. The rich, dark color and the head are great after pouring from bottle, as expected from a stout-but the rich, bold flavors I expect from a stout are just not there. There is a coffee, oatmeal flavor with very slight hints of chocolate, but none of these flavors are strong. The flavors are good and are balanced, just not much there.
Overall, this is probably a great introductory stout for those just starting with stouts or who don't usually like them as it is easy to drink.

Maybe I am bias towards my Michigan Brews but Founder Oatmeal Stout is great Sweet Stout. With flavors of coffee, chocolate, and lightly roasted characters tickle the taste buds, it is easy to get a full stomach on a pint (or two). As dark as they come, this beer has nothing to see through it! My appearance review rating was not all that well because I felt my bartender just overflowed the pint glass and I was not happy about the wasted beer :(
All said though, this is a great sweet stout for those who are looking for a big filling beer!
Cheers to Founders!
