Bottle, courtesy of yespr. Pours nearly black with airy chocolatelike head. Inviting aroma of roasty malt. Taste of smoked malt and roasted nuts. Pleasant, not excessively dry aftertaste. Very decent stuff. Bonus point for relatively low amount of alcohol.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. It’s a very dark brown beer, topped by a minimal-sized tan head. A bit boring aroma, but far from bad, with coffee and roasted malts doing most of the work. Cold coffee, burnt malts, some prunes and licorice in the flavor. It’s thin and dry on the palate, a bit too thin I think, but at 3.7% ABV it’s not bad. Dry and roasted finish. Overall, a tasteful and quenching beers, but I think it could use a more generous shot of hops. 120511

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 3.7%. Roasted aroma, subtle yeast note. Black colour. Small unstable dark brown head. The flavour is also roasted, ashy, mild, but flavourful. Not a powerful beer, but good considering the ABV. Does not taste much of oysters, but there is a little salt in there, no more than many non-oyster stouts, though. Hint of grassy hop in the aftertaste. Not a sipping beer, but works nicely as a quaffing beer.
