1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Appearance: jet black, absolutely opaque, small tan head with a little lacing
Aroma: chocolate, coffee
Taste: rich chocolate, coffee
Palate: thicker, leaves a chocolate aftertaste
Overall: I'm still perplexed at how these chocolate beers score so well, perhaps it's my palate, I just taste chocolate and coffe, they say its boiled with oysters but its not prevalent in the flavor

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Square Pub. Pours near black with tan head. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, and roasted malts. Flavors of nicely roasted malts and is rounded out with some chocolate, caramel, and light hop bitterness. Little bit of salt in finish but did not pick up any type of oyster flavor. Not a bad stout and by far the best I have had from Abita.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Chimes East in Baton Rouge, as well as Whole Foods on Park Lane in Dallas.
Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma has some nice chocolate and roasted malt notes. The flavor is very similar. I get a lot of chocolate and roasted malt, as well as some light smoke and a slight brininess. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark with a small mocha head and plenty of lacing. Mild aroma of roast, grass, and chocolate. Taste is roasty, a touch sweet, and a touch bitter. Medium-full bodied and creamy. No oyster... Bummer. Oh well, this is a really good abita, though its not that good of a stout.

Tap @ Nobi .. deep brown .. mild foam .. simple stout, hardly imperial but still a nice beer, the abv is very well done but the palate is a bit weak .. .. ..
The other children they were very nasty to me about that.
They said bad, hurtful things to me.
They called me Tasty-Cakes and they would beat me and stick pine cones in my ass.
Those were very bad times.
