Black as night, thick as motor oil. I've heard it thins over time. Probably would have enjoyed it more if I waited for that to happen. Thick beer in the dead of summer isn't the best choice.
Smells of Coffee and Chocolate - much like you'd expect.
Tastes like Coffee and Chocolate - much like you'd expect.
Leaves bitterness on the palate on the finish. Not sure how much of that is the density of the beer.
Overall, I'm not a huge fan of these kinds of stouts on a regular basis - but when I do drink them, I prefer KBS or Bourbon County. This would be good for someone that wants a more reasonable ABV than those two options, though.

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!
