A - Thick dark brown head that lingers for a short while before turning into thin coating. Dark brown, even looks heavy. Lots of lacing.
S - Coffee, Dark Chocolate, Molasses, Malt and tons of all four. Smells like a dark roast coffee.
T - Bitter the way that coffee and dark chocolate are bitter, rather malty but not too sweet. Some char-like roasty flavors, almost little sour actually. Can taste the alcohol on the finish and leaves a bitter aftertaste. Not bad but not the greatest.
M - Good. Heavy, creamy, with a slightly oily ending.
D - I know some people who could pound these suckers, and I do like stouts, but the flavors here are so bitter for a stout, and just...so much. I could only drink a pint of this at one sitting I think.

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!

Served at 40 degrees
Pours pitch black, allowing no light to pass through. A light brown head quickly dissolves to a thin ring. No noticeable carbonation. Decent lacing and light legging.
Rich, bitter chocolate and cocoa nibs up front backed by thick notes of roasted coffee. Hints of molasses. Not a lot to speak of beyond that, but it is very pleasing.
Bitter chocolate hits you first with a subtle smoke character. Gobs of roasted malt and coffee ride out each sip. Light notes of molasses and vanilla. Roasted coffee aftertaste. Alcohol is well masked - I'd never guess this one at 8%.
This is a full-bodied beer that will fill you up. Again, no noticeable carbonation. Smooth exit with a nice aftertaste.
This is a fantastic beer for the cold winter days we have ahead. Easy to drink, but best enjoyed slowly. Highly recommend.
