I picked this up at the store about a month before Thanksgiving. Poured into an American pint glass. It pours a very dark dark dark brown, almost black but with those brown hints. The head, which there was very little was a dark tan color. The smell is very coffee with some very nice sweet notes you also get a nice mix of roasted malts. Overall the aroma is fabulous and very complex. The taste matches the aroma nicely. Lots of sweet coffee tastes up front, the carbonation hits your tongue very nicely and then you get a very clean chocolate taste. In the after taste the roasted malt flavors get you big time. Over all great taste, I almost wish the coffee was a little more, it might of helped the mouthful feel a little less sticky and more refreshing. Highly drinkable for it being 8.3% ABV.
The flavors come out more and more as the beer gets to room temperature

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!
