From the 12 fl. oz. bottle notched September 2014. Sampled on March 8, 2014.
The pour is very dark brown to about black with some mahogany hues around the edge of the glass. Long lasting tan head.
Aroma of dark biscuit malts, cooked oatmeal and a little bit of smoke.
The body is thinner but it is essentially still creamy and smooth.
The taste also brings out the dark malt and oatmeal character with a mild dry bitterness to finish. It is a pretty decent beer from Maine.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. 2/17
Pours dark brown with a little tan foam on top. and a bit fizzy. Rich roasted oaty nose. Taste is a hearty wall of oats, coffee grittiness, then suddenly a smooth finish. Mild bitter. Good close. A little milky, but not in a sweet stout kind of way.

Best before April 2014.
Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams nonick.
a: Opaque black with a finger thick tan head which dissipated quickly to thin even surface foam and a few small patches of lacing.
s: Chocolatey dark malt.
t: Heavy smoky dark malt up front, cigar ash aftertste. :Later some bitter cold coffee notes appear.
m: Medium with good body.
o: A tasty stout, although the initial aroma belies the heavy smoky taste. Not terribly easy drinking due to the smoky taste and lingering tobacco ashy flavor. Might be good with a cigar though for that reason.

3.69/5 rDev -2.6%
A: Pours a rich dark color completely blackened like very used motor oil. with little or no head.
S: Aroma is of coffee and toasted malts.
T: Taste is of coffee,licorice, and molasses. Hints of sweet malts, and burnt toast.
M: Mouthfeel is silky and smooth lightly carbed with a slightly metallic taste.
O: Overall this is a great oatmeal stout from New England area Maine for sure and they know cold weather and hot coffee this is a great substitute for that. I would think about this one for breakfast, very yummy.

A- Poured into a fresh pint glass down the middle with a pitch black body. Even with the somewhat aggressive pour the head only forms to about one finger. Light mocha foam falls to a small creamy ring after decent retention. Nice webs of lace around the glass.
S- Rich and roasty malts with a strong milk chocolate, cocoa note to it. Mostly dark malts here with hints of coffee, toasted nuttiness, caramel and sweets.
T- Follows the aroma up with a pretty dark roast grain forward flavor profile. Bold with notes of cocoa powder, burnt malt, coffee beans, toffee, toasted nuts and caramel. Some dark fruit hints make up the major difference between here and the aroma.
MF- Moderately thick body with a creamy texture overall. Carbonation is on the higher side and not quite as smooth as other Oatmeal Stouts I have sampled. Fair amount of roast bitterness on the palate in the finish.
Solid Oatmeal Stout with an emphasis on dark roast malts. Nice cocoa flavor throughout the experience. Flavor seems to thin out just a bit after some time but still nothing wrong here at all.
