A: Black, opaque, oily. Small beige head with quite a good retention (leaves a mocha-like film).
S: Mainly coffee, roasted malts, ashes, a bit of chocolate and sweetness in the back. Promising.
T: My very pleasure with this kind of beer is above all to smell it, try to find out its diversity and figure out what it could taste. And I must say that this one tastes even better than it smells! Huge kick of coffee, followed by a front of dark chocolate and sweet malts, slight earthiness to finish. Good job!
M: Not as much heavy as expected but quite creamy, not sticky at all. Finishes dry.
O: A very good stout, easy to drink. Not an extreme beer, except for the coffee kick at the beginning of each sip. Valuable!

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!
