12 oz dated bottle into a tulip glass.
pours a thick, greasy black. looks like used motor oil, absolutely no light getting through this beer! a one finger brown head forms quick and settles to a ring around the glass with some nice, densely spotted lacing.
nose of dark chocolate, molasses and espresso with a bit of alcohol presence. taste follows nose, but adds big roasted malt character and brown sugar. malts are perfectly balanced with hop bitterness that lingers on the back of the tongue. alcohol is hidden pretty well.
mouthfeel is especially smooth and creamy considering how thick and rich this beer is. carbonation is mild but adequate, just the way i like it.
another amazing beer from founder's. very, very drinkable, especially so considering the richness and higher abv. you won't need very many of these, but it's so good that you can't have just one.

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!
