I have to say that I was surprised to see a child eating what appears to be oatmeal on the label of this brew. Some lawsuit happy dumbass might be tempted to sue Founders because it could appear to be a children's drink (if a person was really stupid). Cute label. I like it.
Pours a dark dark ebony with a dark brown short-lived head. Minor lacing on the glass looks like some sort of alien language.
Smells of slightly oxidized espresso/strong coffee and dark chocolate. Hints of an acidic coffee smell in there as well.
Tastes is the same as the nose. A strong coffee (slightly oxidized) and dark chocolate flavor lead with a nice coffee bean bitterness on the end.
Mouthfeel is slightly too prickly for my tastes. Would like to see this creamier like Expedition. Maybe ageing will help?
Drinkability is high - especially with thick cut bacon and sunny-side up eggs fried in bacon grease! YUMMY!
Excellent beer to go with a greasy 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!

Served at 40 degrees
Pours pitch black, allowing no light to pass through. A light brown head quickly dissolves to a thin ring. No noticeable carbonation. Decent lacing and light legging.
Rich, bitter chocolate and cocoa nibs up front backed by thick notes of roasted coffee. Hints of molasses. Not a lot to speak of beyond that, but it is very pleasing.
Bitter chocolate hits you first with a subtle smoke character. Gobs of roasted malt and coffee ride out each sip. Light notes of molasses and vanilla. Roasted coffee aftertaste. Alcohol is well masked - I'd never guess this one at 8%.
This is a full-bodied beer that will fill you up. Again, no noticeable carbonation. Smooth exit with a nice aftertaste.
This is a fantastic beer for the cold winter days we have ahead. Easy to drink, but best enjoyed slowly. Highly recommend.
