2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draft at Stogies and Stouts 2016. Pours a cocoa brown with a tan head. Nose is huge herbs, bay, lobster seasoning, and some brine with cocoa and chocolate. Flavor is similar with a hint of mole, old bay spices, some cocoa, and hints of brine and seafood. A weird beer. Medium in body and lingering brine into the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at York River Landing, Maine. This is one wacky beer -- itís not every day that Iím left struggling to tell if the basil or the lobster comes through more! I love the creativity that led them to even come up with this idea, let alone make it. The end product is (unsurprisingly) pretty crazy. Itís got some of that oily, meaty taste Iíve had from oyster stouts and the two or three beers Iíve had brewed with meat, and itís got an herbal quality from the basil. Moderately thin. OK, but all over the place; one heck of a creative beer.

Dark black in color... Aroma of sea water, maybe some lobster notes... Hint of cocoa, basil on the nose... Flavor is fairly salty, gentle chocolate notes, ocean water... Hint of lobster on the palate... Interesting

Pours a black brown color with a foamy light brown head. Nose dark chocolate and roasted malt with a decent dash of basil and some brine. Would be great with oysters.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
10/21/15. Growler shared by Carl. Thanks, I guess. Dark brown pour with a small tan head. Nasty shellfish aroma, like cheap chowder, mixed with herbs and mild chocolate and coffee. Why on earth would anyone do this? The flavor isnít as bad, the shellfish is milder, chocolate and herbs pop subtly. Glad to have tried, donít need any more.

Black thick pour from draft at Birreria in Eataly. Off white foamy head. Sweet cocoa aroma. Taste is sweet, chocolate, has a carbonation kick. Not getting any lobster taste, maybe a tad of the basil. Pleasant beer overall

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smell is mostly basil with a faint bit of chocolate and lobster. Taste is basil, chocolate, and lobster. Very weird, but not terrible due to the decent amount of cocoa flavor in it. Medium body, low carbonation, and a bit of creamy foam.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at World of Beer Sugarland. Pours black with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is roast and earth. Thin mouth, chocolate, roast, shellfish coming out in the finish, odd.
