3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of roast and chocolate. Tastes roasty and slightly bitter. Not a very stout-like mouthfeel at all; pretty light bodied and thin. It’s ok.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Here?s a go at my first oyster stout. Nice dark body. Thick tan foam. So far good. Very chocolaty smell. Some smoked aromas. Glad it doesn?t smell like the sea. Wow, what a bitter taste. Dark chocolate flavors, coffee, toffee. Little mineral flavor. Again, glad it doesn?t have a fishy taste. Its a little too bitter for my stout looking, but much better than I thought it would be. ADDITIONAL INFO: Well, but the end of the glass, it got kind of oystery. A little to powerful for me. I enjoyed the first half, not the second.

Bottle @ Ministerstwo Browaru Pub, Poznań. Pours cloudy very dark brown with small light tan head. Clear aroma of malt, dark chocolate and coffee beans. Roasty, bitter flavour, with notes of malt, coffee beans and cocoa. Bitter finish. Well-balanced and nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I was a bit sceptical about this one...
Pours a completely black color with an average slightly off color head.
The aroma is surprisingly gentle, just some roasted malts present.
The taste is very nice - some roasted malts, slight bitterness. Very drinkable, definitely nothing bad about it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pen & Paper Log (Dec 2013)
Aroma - nice roast in the nose with some espresso/coffee notes.
Appearance - a very dark brown body, with a small tan head.
Taste - a lot of complexity and enjoyment in the taste - there is a sort of salt roast quality, coffee, and some dark chocolate.
Palate - body is medium-to-full, the texture is slick, the texture soft, and the finish is a roasty bitterness, but unique - almost campfire in nature.
Flying Dog always impresses, just another great beer.

Great Brew. Taste is sweet maybe of caramel and the oyster must make it nice sweet and smooth. Great pour, luck, overall amazing brew. Would def recommend as a starter stout for a friend.

Black with small, tan head. aroma of coffee and roasted malts with hints of chocolate. Light sourness from dark malts. Medium bitterness in the finish along with nice roastiness. Light fruitness. Something like a mineral note. Creamy on palate. Good, though i expected more.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 Roasted coffee and tobacco comes through on both the nose and the palate, working together to create a stout that starts with a malty sweetness and finishes with an earthy dryness, light bitterness, and moderately roasted notes. Not a complex stout but a nice showing of the style. No salty, briny or oyster flavors at all.
