JMerritt (1921) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Bottled. Black with a thin, bright white head. Nose is of very light dark chocolate, mild brine and smoke - quite interesting. Chocolate malts are much more prominent in the flavor, with mild, meaty and salty undertones. Finish has a bit more smoke and light coffee. Quite an eclectic mix of flavors.

scotchzombie (510) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Pours nearly black with a tan head that disappears to a rim. Aroma is cocoa and roasted malt with a hint of coffee. Taste is more coffee and oatmeal than chocolate. Roasted malt backbone. I want or taste oysters on the half shell in there, but I'm not sure. A bit shallow. Decent but not too memorable.

martpez (93) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2015
Decent enough stout. On the sharper side with the malts taking a back drop to the taste of alcohol. Its ok but I was left disappointed expecting something better.

lokis333 (278) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - OCT 8, 2015
Very dark brown color with brown foam. Aromas of oatmeal and roasted malts, but on the weak side. Palate was smooth with some body to it, not the heaviest beer though, somewhere in the middle. Tasted mainly of roasted malt with lovely dark aftertaste. Over all quite nice beer to try.
