12oz, bottled 11/18/11, trade extra courtesy of Trystero (thanks!).
A - black, with finger thick khaki head that settles into what looks like a bubbling pancake that's ready to flip.
S - Coffee, coffee, and more coffee. Smells like fresh-ground, dark roasted beans. High quality coffee, too - the "Don't f'ing 'Jimmy' me, Jules!" kind.
T - High quality, fresh brewed coffee up front and hangs around. Alcohol is noticeable on the finish. A tart sweetness I can't quite place, but not unenjoyable.Hops play a quick game of Whack-a-Mole, popping in and out. There's a nice sweetness somewhere in there but it's buried by the coffee and alcohol.
M - Light-medium body balanced with medium carbonation. Tingly, tacky finish.
O - Finally got to pop my FBS cherry and glad I did, although with all that coffee presence it's the wrong stout for drinking after midnight like I did. Saving the rest of my bottles for weekend breakfast/brunch hours. Would like to see how this one cellars.

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!
