4.53/5 rDev +0.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Pours a very dark, espresso black coloring to about an inch of milk chocolate colored head. This dissipates slowly to a very nice veil of head that lingers for awhile but doesn't cling much on the way down.
S: Some coffee notes and dark chocolate aromas up front, make way to a nice roasted malt air with hints of lighter milk chocolate as well. Very very nice.
T: Roasted malt and smokyness up front, leads to a mild espresso flavor with alot of dark chocolate mixed in. Theres also some hops bitterness midway thru the palette but its barely noticeable. No burn or alcohol bite at all.
M: Very nice carbonation level for the style, def an oatmeal stout with a nice chewy/creaminess ud expect.
O: Very nice stout right here. Nice roasted malts and chocolate flavorings all the way thru and even with an 8% ABV, its not noticeable. Very well down Founders!

12oz into a snifter, bottled 11/09/13
Pours pitch black with a finger of mocha colored foam. Good retention and lacing, no carbonation coming up from the sides of the glass
Smells of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolates, some vanilla, dark fruits, toffee, and finishes with some alcohol. Everything comes together pretty well
Taste is with the nose pretty well, strong upfront coffee and dark chocolate along with figs, cherry, and other dark fruits. Vanilla and toffee on the finish, ending with a splash of alcohol
Feel is moderately bitter with a heavy body. Finishes pretty dry, alcohol concealed well but enjoyably present
Overall glad I got to try this. Three more sitting in the cellar
