Poured into a Lucky Town pint glass

A: Dark brown/black with a beige one finger head that camps out nicely. Great lacing.

S: Coffee, chocolate, malts. Barbecue.

T: Strong, slightly smokey taste that follows nose. Sweet, robust. Great example of the style.

M: Medium to heavy. Good carbonation.

O: A solid oatmeal stout. Great sipping beer. Hearty. The imperial version (Double Barrel Flare Gun) is even better.

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.

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.
