Pours an intense dark black with faint hints of brown at the edges. A great tan head compliments the blackness perfectly. Tightly laced bubbles cling to the sides of the glass.
The aroma is the richest, bitter coffee smell I've ever experienced with a rich chocolate aroma following right behind.
The bitter chocolates and coffees are amazingly prominent with a mild alcohol burn throughout. The oatmeal keeps the smoothness intact the whole way through. There is also a great hop presence that works well. It's not dominant by any means, but it is there.
My only wish is that the mouthfeel was a little more full. It is definitely medium to full bodied, but I could stand it a little thicker. That said, this is a delicious beer that I would sip on all night and finding any fault in it at all is very hard to do.

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!
