3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; poured a dark cola brown with a khaki colored head. Aroma was light, with caramel, cocoa and roasted; maybe some minerals. Flavor was better; good sweetness with very light cocoa and roasted notes. Fairly straightforward, and didnít pick up many qualities of the oysters.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very dark brown with amber highlights. Roasted malt and coffee aromas. I donít really taste any oysters, but it has a nice balance of flavors. I find it light for a stout, but I enjoyed this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle from Brewdog.com (£3.49):
Black with amedium brown head that halves in size and stays as a thin, very slightly patchy one.
Light, sweet chocolate and some roasted malts with a hint of coffee. I could detect some cocoa and a definite hint of smoke.
Sweet malts and a lot of chocolate with a hint of coffee again. The taste is pretty basic with some sugar and a few earthy notes.
Light medium and smooth with a slightly creamy feel. There is a definite dry texture to the beer and some sweetness as well.
Pretty disappointing to be honest and not a beer I would recommend, not because it was a bad stout but because it was so basic throughout. Whilst drinkable this one was just a little too bland to really enjoy.
