12oz. bottle into a founders tulip glass
A: Pours pitch black with maybe a hint of brown, completely opaque. About an inch of medium brown head that very slowly fades away to a ring around the glass. Quite nice.
S: As soon as I start to pour, I can smell the coffee. Bittersweet coffee can be smelled from feet away. Some roastiness, dark chocolate, and hop bitterness can be smelled, as well. A bit bitter for me, but good for the style.
T: A bit of a surprise after the smell. There is significantly less coffee in the taste. Much more roast, fairly significant hop bitterness, with some bitter coffee. The bitterness is a bit much for me, but overall very good.
M: Thick with good carbonation. Very good.
O: The coffee and chocolate flavors in this beer are wonderful. They mix quite well with the intense roast. I just wish the bitterness was dialed down a bit. A bit more sweetness would help, too. Overall, this is a very good imperial stout.

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!
