On draft at York River Landing, Maine. Light saltiness at the very beginning, before ending with raisins, plums, and a bit of bitterness. The oyster taste is really faint, but that might be for the best!

Nera con schiuma poco persistente color marrone. Aroma di malto tostato intenso, si ripropone al palato con una media frizzantezza e una leggera salinità. Buona.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2016 Nera con una lieve schiuma beige molto persistente. Al naso i tipici sentori di una stout: caffè, cacao. In bocca ripropone quello già sentito al naso, al palato è morbido con una bassa carbonazione. Esprime un finale secco e salmastro dato dai molluschi.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dec ’14. A 0.33 l bottle courtesy of Marko, great thanks for sharing! It poured hazy dark brown body with a smaller head. Heavily roasted malt aroma, touched with the citrus hop. Non-proportionally weak flavor, a bit sweet fruity and more so roasty, being lightly bitter. Lightly milky besides the other dominating, typical palette of roasted malt flavors. Thinner to medium bodied with moderately long finish that mostly followed the flavor, didn’t leave some striking impression on me. Oysters?

Sampler dark brown with mocha head. Thinner body than expected aroma of medium roasted malts sea water/fishy only because of the oysters and clams nice flavor though easy to drink with lots of flavor.

Cask (Craft Clerkenwell, London)
Black, large tight persistent head. Kalamata olives with lightly-salted brine in the aroma. Full, smooth palate. Same in the taste too, less salty. And odd one. In fact it’s a bit messed up.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice aromas of chocolate,roasted coffee, some fruit to boot. Usual black body. the head is thin and tan but leaves some spotty lace. Flavor is about the same as the aroma with the roasted, almost burnt coffee notes being most dominant. Nice finish, but wheres the salt and oysters?? Overall its a nice mellow stout, but rather pricey.
