COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summer’s final ferry has departed from Port Jefferson Harbor, and colder weather is imminent. A suitable remedy for winter’s inevitable arrival? Starboard Oatmeal Stout. A luscious, velvet-smooth pour of sweet chocolate, roast, and comforting warmth, Starboard Oatmeal Stout is brewed with flaked oats, brown sugar, and raisins. Breakfast in a glass, basically. Dessert, too. Every meal, actually, and the perfect companion for contemplation near any serene winter landscape. Especially a shoreline.

Poured from 22 oz. bottle. [Port Jeff's website lists the ABV at 5.4%, but the bottle says 9.2%. The former is clearly an error.] Opaque, brown-black with a 3-finger tan head and very good lacing. Aroma of molasses, toffee, raisins and chocolate. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, toffee, slightly tart dark fruit, molasses and earthiness. Somewhat sweet with lots of roastiness and some nice dark fruit yet no strong roasted coffee flavors. Full body and medium carbonation with a substantial mouthfeel. A great imperial stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle pours a viscous black with some beige head. Nose has a lot of raisin, lots of molasses, malt, some black pepper, some umami. Flavor has some dried cherry, soured coffee, lightly sweet, a little dark bread, some turbinado sugar. Lightly sour finish. Something is off.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Coffee nose. Not that much coffee on the palate, i got a toffee/chocolate sweetness at the back end. A bit earthy and dirty and that’s not a bad thing.

Dark brown and decent tanish head. Oaty, nutty roast nose. Wee bit Weatabixy initial taste, light toasted malt and melded light choc milk. Middle of sultanas and sugary glaze. Nice roasted finish. p>Bottle, Black Friday Tasting

jredmond (5475) - Manhattan, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Draft at Pony Bar HK with Andrew, Ellen and Redi. Pours a deep brownish black body with thin, mocha brown lacing. Aroma is deep, rich coffee, earthy roast, wood and light chocolate. Mouthfeel is on the thinner side with notes of earthy roast, sweet dark chocolate, and lots of coffee character. Nice, rich stout.

I like oatmeal stouts, but this one doesn’t hit the mark. Pours black with tan head which gave me hope. Aroma is vanilla and oatmeal. Started sipping and was searching for some flavor, but lacked. Little hints of chocolate and minimum carbonation and a little coffee aftertaste. One good thing to say is that it hides the 9% alcohol well.
