Black color with some ruby edges. Thin tan head foams up and then dissapears entirely. No lacing. A swirl of the glass releases some carbonation and causes a thin ring to form around the edge but it's gone almost before you can notice.
The smell is where this one really starts to show it's true colors. Tons of coffee smell with some chocolate in the background and great roasted malts.
Taste is right in line with the smell, coffee with a nice bitterness and some smooth cocoa in the background. Roasted malts and some of the alcohol start to show as it warms. Yum.
This one didn't disspoint, other than the appearance not being any thing to write home about. But really, the taste is what this is all about right? And that is where this one really shines. Highly recommended.

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!
