3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 oz. can. Dark brown with a thin pale head.
Aroma is a touch of caramel and malt with a hint of metal and oysters.
Flavor is on the sweet side, but the hops are distinctly there.
Creamy and light. Nice brew.

A fantastic stout. Pours a thick black with a light tan head. Smells amazing, like cream, and molasses. Taste is similar, very milky and thick, with a slight hoppy finish. Damn good beer. Had at the brewery.

Most impressive! This is a wonderful little stout from a can. Deep dark cocoa flavors and molasses like sweetness. Slight brine flavor in finish and initial palate bite.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with a thin light tan head. Roasty sweet nose with a touch of char, some crystal malts, a bit of chocolate, and just a whiff of caramel. Flavor is really big but not syrupy or wrecking. Huge taste starts off with roasty sweet dark stouty malts, a touch of dry chocolate, an very earthy toffee/caramel undertone. Only a very little touch of brine on the finish that would even let you guess oyster stout...it’s very hidden. Probably wouldn’t have even said so if not for the description/name. Enough bitterness to kick a little bit and balance it all out.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce can poured dark brown with aromas of roast, chocolate, light salt amd some earthiness. Flavors follow suit with a decent amount of roast, chocolate, and earth, a light brineness in the aftertaste, but a solid stout overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2015 Dark chocolate body, with ring of sea foam. Wonder sea-air nose, of brine and salt. Fairly full-bodied with a wonderful debittered, dark malt lattice overlayed with briny shell essence. Hints of smoke mingle with dark roast and salt, contributing a lovely complexity. Well done! Re-rated: 12/2/15:Poofy chocolate head, and a bit more black patent and thinner body than I recall, but otherwise, not bad.
