Roasted barley and debittered black malts combine for a smooth roasty & coffee like profile. Flaked oats and barley contribute an absurdly rich and creamy texture.

APPEARANCE- Looks like a perfect stout. Pitch black with nougat colored head. Surprisingly thin look. NOSE- Lightly roasty and malty FLAVOR- thinner mouth feel than you’d expect for a beer of this color and an oat stout. In general this is a great stout, but slightly different than you’d expect for an oat stout. The deScription indicates subtle flavors, and that’s true. Very nice flavors that are subdued.

Prune, raisin, oatmeal, mild fruitiness in the aroma; black color, opaque, tan colored head; raisin, molasses cookie, milk chocolate, mineral characteristic, non-bitter char, dry herbal finish, light bitterness overall; medium body, smooth; different than the typical oatmeal atout and quite tasty. Draught pint at the brewery.

Nitro dispensed pint at the brewery, 12/12/15.
Large beige head is well-retained, as expected, topping a dark ebony with deep mahogany/auburn highlights. Indeterminable clarity.
Nose smells strongly of prunes, burnt toffee and salted caramel. Big vanilla and buttercream sorta thing going on as well. Bitter roast sits lightly in the background. No alcohol noted.
Bittersweet chocolate, tons of buttercream and light vanilla are prominent in the mouth. Some oily, bitter roast keeps things dry, though there is light caramel/chocolate sweetness to gently balance. Very, very watery and thinned out texture, even taking in to consideration being served on nitro. As well, there’s a strong buttery element here, with heavy bittersweet character.

Somewhere between a 2 and 4oz draft pour at SAVOR 2015’s Saturday night session. Poured a dark, almost black-brown color with a small, very small tan head. Aroma was roasted notes of chocolate, some earthy hop notes. Light woody notes, delicious chocolate and a slightly bittersweet finish of roasted malts.

GIJOE (1260) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Pours dark brown with a generous tan head. Nose is malted chocolate with notes of coffee and anise. Tastes is quite sweet and rich. Mouthfeel is creamy. This is a very tasty dessert beer.

A drinkable sweet stout, tastes like a cross between an oatmeal stout and a milk stout. Rich, smooth. A little sweeter than I would prefer, but still a nice brew.

Best firefly so far. Black pour. Roast malt choclate and wheat. Taste follows nose. Creamy mouthfeel.

Sampled at the brewery. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, some grains, light smokiness, and light bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

Very well done Oatmeal Stout from a new local brewery. Pours black with small off white head. Aroma is lightly burnt toast, coffee, some cocoa. Palate is perfection. Really smooth and creamy and mouth coatingly great. This is a fantastic beer.
