My first Founders Breakfast Stout - really looking forward to it.
Strange, as this beer pours looking almost flat, but then once in the glass, it comes to life, finding its carbonation and head. Motor oil black - the opposite of breakfast milk. Even the head is dark, raising up a whole finger and then dying out, leaving a solid deep ring around the glass.
It smells like deep, dark, majestically incredible - obviously it's got coffee and plenty of it, but then heavy toffee and roasted everything. Really good - one of those smells you remember forever.
Coffee at the fore, and then a bit burnt on the tongue - but in a good way, like a toasted marshmallow - wow. It completely enfolds the tongue and stays with it for a long, long time.
For as huge as this beer is, it's not heavy in the mouth, until it's down the hatch, and then it explodes. It quickly turns a little thin - not a big detractor though.
Seriously a legacy beer - can't say enough about this one- if you enjoy a good hearty stout, buy it, enjoy it, cellar it.
Enjoying this eight months later - July 19, 2010 - the hottest day of the year so far with a heat index of 108. And all day I had a craving for this beer. And it's just as wonderul now as it was eight months ago.

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!
