Drank this on-tap at the source in Grand Rapids, MI. Pours dark, nearly black in color. Small head. Its a smooth, easy-drinking, tasty beer. One of my go-to beers when I'm at Founder's Brewery, but I dont think I've ever bought this in bottled form.

Beautiful stout, but I had issues getting a decent head when pouring.

Black color with the thickest head that won't go away.
Nice chocolaty aroma, it feels real. Hints of oatmeal and roasted, not burnt malt.
Flavor of creamy chocolate, chalky yeast, sweetened coffee, roasted malts and vanilla.
Dry aftertaste with a long roasted note.
Smooth medium body with low carbonation and a nitro feeling. It gets much lighter once nitro fades away.
All right Oatmeal Stout (or Brown Ale?), a session stout if you will, one of the easiest to drink. Tasty, but it doesn’t expect as much complexity as other of their dark beers, though some is likely masked by the nitro.
