* Labeled as Starboard Stout

A - Black pour with a brown foam. Very active foam coming out of the bottle; noticabel carbonaiton. Settles quickly and slight lacing.

S - Notes of fudge brownies, cocoa powder, and roasted malts.

T - Nice toasted oat flavor. Has some sweetness of chocolate and maple sugar. Finishes with a hearty malt flavor.

M - Tastes thin and then hits your belly pretty thick. Easy to have a couple, but this is a rich oatmeal stout that sneaks up on you.

O - A nice stout from the local guys. Price is good ($7 a 25oz) and it holds up well to the others. Actuallt reminded me of the Blue Point oatmeal stout that I wish was easier to get.

Pours a very deep brown color, almost black. The light brown head has moderate carbonation bubbles and settles into a light cap.

The aroma is of roasted barley and bakers chocolate. Caramel sweetness with a touch of scorched caramel. The aroma is nice but light.

Really nice chocolate flavor coming from this stout. The addition of the oatmeal really balances and smooths out the roasted barely and provides a good oatmeal stout flavor. There is also a breakfast blend strength coffee flavor. Some sour lemony notes pop through in the end.

Moderate feel but way beyond fizzy. This is a carbonation bomb. The stout is sweet on the palate and a bit sticky but the carbonation comes in and wipes that all away.

This is a very flavorful oatmeal stout but the carbonation is off the hook. I give props that the flavor still comes through against the carbonation. I like this beer but they got to get the carbonation under control, very un-stout like.

A: Poured from a growler into a mason jar (pretty cool, eh?). Pitch black with a nice coffee-colored head, good retention.

S: Smell is pretty muted, some coffee and chocolate and booze.

T: Taste is much much better. Coffee, chocolate, molasses in the beginning and finishes with burnt/charcoal flavors, chocolate, a little bit of warming alcohol and some light hops. Dry with a residual roasted bitterness. Very good.

M: Full body with decent carbonation. On point for the style, IMO.

O: A great beer from a local brewery which I think I'll be coming back for more of. Very good stuff, and the few samples I had at the brewery were quite good as well. Cheers to Port Jeff Brewery!

A: great start: pitch black body with a towering head of dark foam; nothing clings to the glass as the head recedes

S: dark roasted malts, like espresso and burnt wood

T: the bitter astringence of alcohol and hops are a little harsh up front; some charred aftertaste; black espresso and burnt wood flavors dominant

M: didn't have the creaminess and smoothness I'd expected; medium weight, slick, low carbonation, some astringency

O: I'm a big stout drinker, but oatmeal stouts have evaded me for the most part, so perhaps some of my impressions are ignorant of the style's profile... That said, disappointed - not a smooth, creamy, rich beer, but rather tinny, thin, and harsh. Perhaps 9.0 is too high to go in an oatmeal stout? I've had Sam Smith's and Rogue's Shakespeare oatmeal stouts and found them to be far kinder and smoother.

Great new school schooner tattoo bottle art. Viscous dark brown rimmed black color with an insta-skim head.

Smells like dark roast coffee with a sweet dark sugary thing - molasses-esque?

Initially disappointing Starboard stars with coffee up front and a bright dark fruit finish in back. Kinda thin. For a 9.2% oatmeal stout I was expecting a heartier, more flavorful experience. Dark coffee, roast malt and some cacao bitterness emerge as this beer warms up. Though not as full as I'd like the creaminess of the mouthfeel is great. A little undercarbonated.

It's a beer.

These guys irked me a little bit by setting up a table at a festival and offering unlimited pours while prominently displaying their porter and barrel-aged porter and telling us they weren't available for tasting and wouldn't be opening the bottles they had on display either. Nevertheless the guys were nice enough and the oatmeal stout was on, so I did my best to deplete their reserves. Pours black with a small khaki head that settles down quickly and leaves a bit of lace on the glass. Nose packs roasted malt, milk and bittersweet chocolate, a decent hit of fresh coffee, and some raisiny dark fruit.

The flavor follows suit, with just a hint of the oatmeal adding some chewy, smooth texture. Again there's a combination of sweeter milk chocolate and more bitter cocoa notes, some coffee and fruit. The appealing, moderate sweetness of the beer dries up quite a bit in the finish, while bitterness lingers a little in the aftertaste. I got no booze at all and was surprised to find out later this was 9% ABV.

Medium-full bodied, fairly smooth and creamy, with just a bit of the chewiness imparted by the oatmeal. Pretty solid, deceptively powerful.
