From bottle at Rattle n Hum, NYC. A pleasant surprise. This oatmeal stout was preceded by a Founders Breakfast & helds it's own. The aroma was a bit more funky compared to the from the tap Founders, but that is to be expected. Bottom line: this is a damn good stout.

I've had better stouts. This one smells better than it tastes and feels. Kind of watery.

From a bottle. There is minimal head after an aggressive pour. Jet black color. Minimal lacing. Good taste. Solid stout. Would buy again.

A slightly late to develop cascading light-to-medium brown colored densely packed frothy lush head... Excellent retention... The head turns richer and creamier as it begins to settle a bit... The color is not black, but rather a deep rich mahogany brown that allows some light to leak in around the edges... Mostly still with just a stray carbonation streak here and there... Sheets of lacing cling to the sides of the glass... The nose is spot on for the style... Roasted malt... Coffee... Milk chocolate... The three aromas ebb and flow in prominence, but never completely disappear... The palate is exactly as expected... Brownie batter... Roasted malts... Baker's chocolate... Simple, straight forward and uber effective... Sturdy and medium bodied... Lightly carbonated... A bit chewy... Lush and sleek... Goes down easily sip after sip... This is a rock solid teetering on world class Oatmeal Stout... Tons of character and depth for a modest 5.2% ABV...
