3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can. It pours a nice dark orange/brown color with a rather fizzy yet thick tan head. The aroma is mixed. Thereís some nice chocolaty notes in there and maybe a hint of mocha but also a slight green apple twang and alcohol. The flavor is decent with more chocolate to go with some sweet brown sugar and a little more of that off noteÖ Iím not really getting the brininess that I was hoping for. It does have a silky, full mouthfeel though. The finish has a little more roast and a bit of cloying brown sugar. Overall, not too bad, but slightly disappointing and not worth the money.

12oz can from Thome50! Thanks!.. this is the last of the beer he sent me, and it took some serious cajones to drink, I donít like oysters, I donít like seafood so this is a tough beer to stomach.. Pour is a thinly bodied beer with nose of roast and some slight hop bitterness. taste is dominated by crystal malt and some funky salt water/oxidation taste that is very slight, but noticeable. Iím calling this a gimmick beer and scrolling past.

Opaque super dark brown color with a decent mocha head.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
