Poured from bottle to my Blvd. Smokestack tulip. Bottled 10/14/2011.
A: Pitch black. I mean 8-ball black. Many stouts come close but you can still see some light around the edges of the glass when you hold it up to the light. Not FBS. Cocoa head leaves nice lacing.
S: Roasted, bitter coffee grounds dominate, with rolled oats, a hint of chocolate, and a somewhat acrid vegetable aroma, like that of mashed peas.
T: Bitter coffee, dark chocolate, oatmeal, earthy hops. Definitely gets better as it warms. Exceptionally bold.
M: Viscous but somewhat thin compared to what I expected. A nice, lingering bitterness from the coffee and hops without drying the mouth out.
O: I was a little disappointed, as I bit on the massive hype surrounding FBS and its brethren. I'd love to get my hand on some CBS and see how it compares. I prefer the direction an Imperial Stout like Parabola goes rather than this one.

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!
