Pours so dark and thick I can't even tell what's written on my pint glass. Absolute black that leaves a brown head that dwindles to a puddling lace.
The aroma is overwhelming. Coffee, black malt, oats, sweet chocolate, baker's chocolate, extreme toasty malts. It literally kicked me back the first time I smelt it.
So smooth and creamy. The black patent and toasty oat is right up front then transitions to the sweet coffee/chocolate bitterness. There is sugary fruit flavor(persimmon) that wanders around the palette as well. The hop bitterness is so balanced in the finished its amazing they combined so many earthy textures into this.
The picture on the bottle describes exactly how I feel drinking this.

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!
