4.58/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a very dark black with about 2 fingers of a rich milk chocolate head that dissipates into a brown layer with some lacing.

S: Rich, sweet chocolate and coffee with some dark roasted malts. Delightful.

T: Sweet, creamy chocolate at first followed by dark roasted coffee. Some bitterness from the coffee, but not much. It leaves a pleasant coffee aftertaste.

M: Rich and creamy--heavy body with some carbonation. The oatmeal creates a very smooth feel.

D: Despite how heavy of a beer it is, it goes down amazingly smooth. Very, very good beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

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!

Serving type: nitro-tap
