Poured into a standard pint. The liquid looks fantastic and the head is a nice dark tan color, but the size of the head is too much. Smell is a nice roasted scent. Nothing overwhelming. Perhaps a little burnt coffee in there as well. It's definitely a good smell.
Taste is a bit better than standard. Lots of roasted malts and toffee. As the beer warms and gets towards the end of the glass, the toffee disappears and turns into a slight chocolate malt flavor, though the roasted malts stay dominant.
Mouthfeel takes a hit because of the extra carbonation. Though it's not overwhelming, it's a little too much. It also takes a hit because while it looks thick, it feels a bit thinner than it should be. This is one very drinkable stout. I would definitely recommend this one to anyone looking for a good stout and could easily spend the night drinking these.

3.91/5 rDev +3.2%
12 oz bottle was poured into a nonic pint glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a crazy two finger head that finally reduced to a puffy layer and left some nice lacing on the glass. It is a pitch black color with no vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: sweet and bready oats, roasted coffee, chocolate, and smoke
Taste: everything is blended together, but the flavors are light. Some vanilla and sweetness from the oats in there too. Lingering bitterness in the back of the mouth.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, medium carbonation, and very drinkable.
Overall: Pretty solid oatmeal stout. Too bad they have to make it in Portland and not in Belfast Bay. Still an awesome though.
