Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. I've pulled this bottle from the fridge where it was about 48 degrees. To ensure that I'm getting the most flavor I've let it sit a bit in room temperature beforing imbibing. Here we go...
A - Pours a thick pitch black with a copper bubbly head. Slight lacing. Black, I mean its black. DEEP black!
S - Rich chocolate, dark coffee, earthy dirt scents. Maybe some roasted nuts?
T - Bittersweet chocolate seems to be the prevalent flavor making for a delicious initial tasting. Coffee, more earthy flavors. Slight hop flavors are present at times. Alcohol shows itself at the end, though its minor on the pallet (though this may be due to the beer getting warmer). The complexities are abound and its going to take a number of sips to deduce all the flavors. Pace thy selves though!
M - Thick full body. The alcohol is present, but doesn't hurt the beer. Carbonation is in check. Smooth.
D - Quite a complex beer, full of all sorts of layers. You can spend all day trying to pick this thing apart. I won't say its drinkable, both because of its full body and its boastful alcohol content. But you'll certainly keep coming back for more, as you should! With the exception of a slight alcohol after taste, its balance is damn near perfect. Great scenario: Sitting outside on a cold morning after a hearty breakfast. Try it.

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!
