Pours motor oil black and completely opaque, no visible hues of any other color besides black even at the edges of the glass and when held up to light. A creamy, 2 finger chocolate-milk colored head dissipates after a few minutes but leaves a foamy ring around the glass. Nice lacing.
The nose fairly explodes with fresh coffee, big roasted notes, and chocolate. Smells amazing.
And tastes even better. Big roasted malts and a milk chocolate sweetness at the front of the tongue, then in the middle of the palette I get espresso, bitter bakers chocolate, and some floral hops. The flavors just coat the tongue. Finishes with a coffee/hop medley of mild bitterness. Just delicious.
This beer is definitely on the fuller side of medium bodied and coats the palette with big flavors. Low carbonation is fitting for the style. Velvety smooth.
Long has this been my favorite stout. I have not been lucky enough to get my hands on a KBS yet, but it's honestly pretty hard for me to imagine a stout any better than this. A world class beer through and through. Founders, you beautiful bastards.

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!
