Appearance: Dark black with a thick, brown, fluffy head. Very nice lacing and a very sticky head on the side of the glass. Swirling brings this monster of a head back to life.
Smell: Wow. Rich aromas of dark chocolate, coffee grounds, brown sugar, nutmeg, and vanilla.
Taste: Sandy coffee and chocolate flavors with vanilla, soy sauce, and Hershey's syrup all coming in boldly but not too strongly. There's a nice hop ending to this beer that ingers along with a long, sweet, brown sugar finish. The aftertaste is bready and sweet. The flavor is great because it does not overdo it on anything. There not too much of anything but all the flavors are tasty and well represented.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy with a slight graininess that awakens my palate. So very well done on the feel.
Drinkability: This beer is great because no flavor or smell is overdone. A lot of stouts taste like cold coffee. This beer is complex and tasty without killing the consumer with one intense flavor. Well done because their are lots of coffee and chocolate flavors but still some hop and vanilla flavors to soften the brew.
Serving type: growler

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!
