Bottled on date says 10/06/11. It's 10/22/11.
Poured bottle into Dupont ~12 oz. glass. Pitch black, finger of creamy dark tan head.
Coffee. Roasted coffee right up front. Chocolate coming through.
First sip is coffee, again. Slight chocolate bitter rises, with roasted barley holding strong while oaty, toffee breaks through. Finish is bitter oat though. Yummy oat all day! Vanilla starts coming into the mix as it warms.
Carbonation is high. Tingles well into middle of taste, but delightful, nevertheless. Thick as you would expect it to be upon first glance, but settles nicely. Thins nicely but lingers long, making me anxious for another sip.
Overall, WOW. This one never gets old. Finish the night with this one. Roasted (sweet) coffee, substantial balanced bitter against the roasted malty notes, with savory oat and toffee to boot! This beer beacons to be had with bacon, oatmeal, some sunny side up eggs, and a germ wheat pancake!!! BREAKFAST!

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!
