Pours dark brown, a little lighter than black with a small khaki head.
The aroma is rich roasted malts, coffee, a little chocolate and a very faint sweetness.
The flavor follows the nose. It's roasty and sweet. I don't get a ton of the maple, but there's a definite burnt sugar. It's a solid low abv stout, but not the best.
The mouthfeel isn't bad, it's full enough, and thicker than I'd expect out of a 5.7 beer.
Overall, it's very good. I'd buy it when it's available, but it's not worth trading for. There are stouts on this level everywhere.

Purchased in a growler; poured in a frosted glass mug. Nice brown color, one and a half inch of tan foam. A good deal of lacing. It's an Oatmeal Stout but its not very thick and maybe a little too hoppy for a stout. There is a definite syrup flavored sweetness with a definite dark chocolate taste. Overall decent beer that I would buy again.

Delicious oatmeal stout, this. Bit of a gusher, with a typical pour raising nearly a full glass of light tan head atop a coffee-colored body. The head eventually settled to a thin ring. Lots of carbonation, which made the mouthfeel a little light. Big aromas and flavors of molasses, maple syrup, dark coffee, caramel, and a little tart black cherry. Sweet, but not nearly as sweet as you'd expect. Finish is actually quite dry, with a tinge of astringence. This turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Well done, Lucky Town!

First had poured from growler into clear plastic (poolside) water cup, and then into faceted mug. The Flare Incident is a very quaffable sweet stout.

Pleasantly surprised. 7% abv. I'll be getting a growler of this to take home.
