A – Pours a deep ruby black. Very dark, though not completely opaque. Head is tall initially, but fades to a thin mocha colored cap, leaves a nice bit of lacing throughout.
S – Woah chocolate. Smells very strongly of Hershey's chocolate syrup. As it sits, notes of espresso and dark bitter chocolate come through. Comes across very sweet, though not artificially so.
T – Adamantly more bitter than the nose would have you believe, dark roasted coffee, bitter espresso and chocolate, some chicory as well. Very dark and roasted overall, whatever sweetness there was on the nose is dominated by a vastly bitter body.
M – Medium-Full body, carbonation tends towards the high side, quite crisp, not as boozy or syrupy as one might like.
O – Wonderful brew here, lots of flavors (albeit added) come through, lots of chocolate, coffee and bitterness abound. Very good beer, though tends towards the sweet side of things just ever so slightly.

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!
