Purchased from my local market. Poured into my Founders KBS snifter.
A: Pitch black. Like a moonless night in northern Michigan. Darker than a black coffee. Smokey looking dark tan head about an inch thick.
S: Can you say one of the best smelling stouts on the shelves? In my opinion at least. Smokey, dark roast coffee, espresso, what have you. If it involves coffee it's there. Sweet malty smell also. A hoppy and chocolaty delight. I still can't get over how good this stout smells.
T: Good thing the taste doesn't let up what so ever. Chocolate, bitter dark roast coffee, hops, smokey bitterness, and vanilla. This beer really reminds me of a straight shot of espresso. It starts smooth and finishes bitter. A creamy double imperial masterpiece.
M: Light medium to medium mouthfeel. Carbonation seems just right. Hell everything about this beer seems just right.
D: Oh can you say drinkability? For as bitter and bruising as this beer is, damn it goes down smooth. Absolutely perfect ABV in my opinion. Not too weak but not so high that you only drink one.
Overall, probably the best stout I've ever had in my life. Outside of its big brother of course, Mr. KBS. If I had Breakfast Stout on tap and available to me every waking second of every waking day...my life would be complete. I can't wait to attend my first Breakfast Stout Breakfast!

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!
