look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Black with brown hue. Very thin head that quickly becomes some carbonated swirls.
Smell: Chocolates. Getting some vanilla and yeast. Some rye bread. Not overly done or overly sweet.
Taste: Very big chocolate notes. The sweetness is nicely done. Good makeup but lacking a bit of depth. The alcohol is there in the end but hidden nicely. I get some espresso and coffee, especially as it warms when the sweetness also comes out. Tasty
Mouthfeel: Nice carbonation and thickness but nothing special.
Overall: A very nice beer. Tasty with good chocolate. The sweetness and chocolate come out in the end and completly change the complexion. I'd say this is very similar to Kern Class V stout on the taste front. It lacks a bit of complexity but the sweetness is spot on for an 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!
