Kudos to Derek for getting this gem on draft in Ohio for us.
Poured a dark brown/black with a nice inch of brown head on it. Lacing was apparent on the sides of the glass.
Smell is dark chocolate, malts and to a lesser degree coffee.
Taste is pretty much the same with a touch of alcohol being present. I've been drinking alot of this years bottled version and on draft the coffee is nowhere near the level it is in the bottle.
Mouthfeel is full, heavy, creamy and quite pleasant. Everything I would want in a stout.
My scores would be higher if it had a little more of the coffee characteristics that this beer is known for. But that's being picky. This is an incredible beer that I would drink on draft all day anyday! Very happy I had the chance.
Serving type: on-tap

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!
