Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a snifter.
S - Wonderful aroma of coffee and chocolate. Slight hint of alcohol as it warms.
A - Pitch black with a healthy tan head. Delicate, sticky lacing.
T - Dark chocolate and coffee up front. The low hop bitterness definitely tips the balance towards the flavorful malts, but a roasty bitterness evens it out. Surprisingly dry finish with a pleasant lingering chocolaty, coffee aftertaste. As the beer warms to room temperature, alcohol emerges just enough to make its presence known, before being overwhelmed by the flavors already described.
M - More carbonation than expected. Medium body. Very creamy, presumably from the oatmeal.
O - An extremely impressive Stout. The brewers perfectly crafted the malt profile to create a rich flavorful beer with just the right amounts of chocolate, coffee, roast and body.

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!
