Very difficult to find, even in Maine, but I finally found a few bombers at Gilbert's, on Main Street in Ellsworth. This stout pours as dark as a foggy night on the Maine coast, with a huge, light brown head. Lacing is profuse, and coats the imperial pint glass with sheets and patches.
Aroma begins with bigtime, roasty malts, evidenced by a strong whiff of fresh brewed, Kona coffee. A hint of English walnuts adds to the roastiness, and a good measure of floral hops(lilac?) jumps aboard, as well.
Mouthfeel is full bodied, thick and coating. Very smooth and nicely carbonated.
Excellent taste that never yields a weakness throughout the 22 oz bottle's pour. Chocolate and coffee maltiness abounds, with plenty of floral, and, at times, herbal hops to balance this excellent stout.
Very nice complexity, and worthy of its acclaim. Very, Very, tasty, and incredible drinkability. By far, the best of the many Maine brews I enjoyed.

12 oz. bottle poured into a stout glass.
Appearance: Pours a near-black with very minimal tan head. No lacing. Looks dense.
Aroma: Smells of black coffee, toasted nuts, some dark fruits, raisins, and a good amount of dark chocolate. Nice bold, complex aromas.
Taste: Taste follows the nose, with dark chocolate and dark fruits leading the way. Alcohol isn't very noticeable. Some pretty good bitterness up front and on the finish. It gets slightly less bitter as it warms. Pretty classic dry stout flavors.
Mouthfeel: This is a big, thick stout. It's a sipper for me.
Overall: This beer has earned its reputation as a sought-after craft stout. Do yourself a favor and find it if you haven't. Bold flavors, good density, terrific aromas. Great stuff.
