Pours a thick almost clumpy darkness that would make a dark moonless night jealous. The froathy/creamy slightly cinnamon colored 2 finger head fades into a nice thin layer on the top and a slightly thicker ring along the sides.
The direct keg version of this fine brew has more of a lactose flavor than the same brew out of the bottle. Nice SUPER dark and deep roasted coffee and slight mocha notes. No presence of chocolate in the aroma that is distinguishable from other aromas.
This, like many [or all] FOUDNERS beers are GARGANTUEN. If Dark Lord is a Gargantuan Imperial Russian Stout than this is the same for coffee & oatmeal. The flavors are so strong that I feel like I'm drinking an Ice Coffee (but obviously much better than mere coffee). There are really nice bittersweet chocolate notes that seem to intermingle with the lactose. The coffee and oatmeal aftertaste is so big is tends to sit so long that you actually want an ice java (black)!!!!
I loved this brew bottled and I love this brew even more on tap! This brew is hearty and full of everything the claim to be full of (oatmeal, coffee and some chocolate)!
This beer is just plain old delicious!!!

On principle, I am hesitant to rate a beer as perfect. This is the tastiest stout I have ever had. Is it the best? I am not sure, and the only reason I'm not sure is that there are still other beers out there in the world. It pours heavy, no head and minimal lacing, into a tulip glass (next time I'll use a snifter). It tastes sweet, and bitter, and chocolatey - I sense coffee, but on my palate the chocolate is more present - and heavy. Like I really could have it for breakfast. And by God the next time I don't have to work and my kid is already at daycare, I will have one for breakfast, and by then maybe I'll decide it truly is the best stout ever.
