I am revising a 3 year-old rating on this beer (no prose on previous rating). Slowly but surely this has become my favorite beer. Sure, I like other styles, actually NE IPA is the best. But really, Founders OMBS is the best of everything. I look forward to it every year. It is never too sweet like some other stouts. Great mouth feel. Love the coffee. Love the baby on the bottle! I can never say I have a favorite son (I have 3) but this beer really is super dependable for me. Read the other reviews if you want an analysis.

Reviewed July 3, 2006 entered from notes.

Leaves its 12 oz stubby like sorghum from the syrup jar - thick, dark, and slow. A vigorous pour releases 3 inches of espresso foam colored head layered on top. Antique lace clings to the glass. Rocking the glass back and forth reminds me of one of those plexiglass wave toys one might have on a desk.

Odor of strong fresh Italian roast coffee and baker's chocolate but drier and sharper.

Wonderful flavors chase each other around my mouth and dance on my tongue.

Rich thick mouthfeel - absolutely wonderful! 5,5,5,5,5
