12oz bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black with a light tan head. Imagined that I was tasting oysters but not sure I really was. More noticeable were the coffee notes and nutty roasted malt flavors. Went well with the crab cakes we had for dinner tonight.

JMerritt (1931) - 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 (519) - 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.
