12oz can. Pours dark deep brown color with an inch of tan head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and some mild mineralness. Taste follows the aroma closely with the oyster aspect of mineral and brine standing out much more. Body is medium, with a moderate amount of carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours an almost opaque dark brown body with a small frothy light brown head that fell quickly to a thin film. The nose is roasty and sweet with lots of licorice, some chocolate, a little bit of a briney note, and black strap molasses. The flavor is quite sweet and roasty with a slightly salt laced briney finish. Fairly nice Foreign Stout up front with a nice thick licorice note, the finish is what gives it a little bit of a unique twist. Medium bodied, a slight stickiness, moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice beer, but the saltiness on the finish gets to be a bit tiring.

12 ounce can thanks to the Boise crew. Pours a dark medium brown color with a medium beige head. A interesting nose of ash, cherries and some smoke. The flavor is similar: light dry fruit, ashy and smoky, some light roasted malts. Very grainy. Interesting and good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Marooned on hog island, easily the strangest beer name in a long time. Rescued from the discount cart at Harris teeter in Charlotte, nc. Dark black brown liquid with disconcerting creamy bits. Nose a dry roasted black coffee with limestone notes. Medium roasty coffee with a touch of cream. Lightly fizzy body. More dark coffee on the finish.

Brown, clear, tan head. Nutty, chocolate, biscuit, an interesting earthy note that I assume is oysters. Interesting beer.

Cannette de bière encannée le 11/19/2012. Classique brune foncée avec des reflets rouges. Au nez des fruits rouges comme des cerises. En bouche des saveurs agréables de fruit, de chocolat, de Cherry Blossom. Une rondeur acceptable et un peu léger pour 7%. Très digeste, facile à boire et une finale agréable sur les fruits.

Dead certain I rated this recently. One of the increasing number of disappearing ratings that many seem to have been reporting of late. Anyhoo, thanks to durhambeer for gifting me this can. Nice hefty pour, color of jerky and molasses, with a medium carbonation. Soft chocolate malts in the nose along with moderately bitter notes and just the faintest whiff of salt and brine. Fairly understated in that area as far as other erster stouts I’ve had, but still distinctive and an enjoyable brew overall.
