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!

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.

* 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.

A - Super dark, milk chocolate colored head is creamy but relatively low. Ok lace. Body is black-brown with murky brown highlights.

S - Sweet malt, light roast, twang of bitter coffee. Soft, raisiny booze.

T - Smooth, sweet malt paired with a rolling, bitter roast. Chocolate gnosh and oatmeal center. Warm booze on the backend with a lingering woody bitterness.

M - Smooth, full body with a dry finish.

O - Surprisingly smooth for 9%. A solid stout from what's shaping up to be a solid new face on the local Long Island brew scene.
