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.

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.

12 oz. can. Pours a nearly opaque midnight brown, faint amber on the edges, with two fingers of rocky, frothy khaki head that laces the glass in big ribbons. Aroma of dark chocolate, sea water, dark fruits (berries mostly), toasted oats, and earth. Flavor of bitter dark chocolate, earth, roast, leaves, and burnt toast. Light-medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth, rich, roasty mouthfeel. Barely any saltiness or brine in the flavor. Interesting beer.

355mL can thanks to my little sister. Clear cola maroon pour. Medium tan head. Spotty to Sheety lacing. Nose is dark cherry, licorice, big brown sugar, some funky seafood, sweet brownie. Taste is denser vanilla, mild tangy lemon, bitter cocoa powder, long dark chocolate finish. Quite enjoyable. No saltiness and no oyster as usual.

Can sample at a tasting at our place. Thanks zvikar. Purple black with tan head, concentrated grape juice and camomile aroma, also sweet like dried fig. A little old bitterness and then sweet taste. Full body, no carbonation, smooth texture.
