2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Triangle Wine Co. Pours black with a light tan colored head. Aroma is sweet, bready and slightly malty. Tastes like slight chocolate and oatmeal, kind of watery too though. Body was much thinner than I like. Slightly creamy but not really enough to make up for how thin and watery it tasted. This is the first beer from Founders that I have come away from highly unimpressed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aromas of roasted coffee and a touch of molasses. Hops just add some generic bitterness. Some smoke, burnt, tar, charcoal flavors.
Has a large off-white to light brown head. Beer is a dark, very close to black color.
Somewhat on the sweet side; moderate bitterness.
Pretty full bodied; distinctly creamy texture from the nitrogen; average carbonation; fairly long finish with roasted flavors.
Overall a fairly good stout. I like the variety of roasted malt aromas with the coffee, molasses and hints of smoke, tar and charcoal.

Insanely drinkable and pretty to look at. Not crazy sweet like many oatmeal stouts. Has more substance and a better palate than one would expect from such a sessionable beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Conrads. An almost opaque brown with a very creamy and well sustaining head with excellent lacing. Aroma has a light sweetness with oats, light roast and a little cocoa. Taste follows the nose with light roastiness and oats with a cocoa dusted nuttiness and very mild roasted bitterness. Finished mostly dry. Mouthfeel semi creamy with a medium body and soft nitro carbonation. Solid and sessionable with simple but satisfying flavor.
