3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yeasty with a little coffee aroma. Black as my heart with a dark tan head. Tastes zingy citrus at first then a nice palate covering coffee cream. Great stout. Not much hint of oysters but then again i can’t remember the last time I had one.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours ebony black with medium sized tan head. Nose is dark malt and coffee. Nice and creamy on the palate, with flavors of dark roasted malt, slightly burnt coffee and a hint of hops on the finish. Could not detect any oyster flavors. A good, though, not great, stout.Stands up well to a loaded pastrami and cheese sandwich on pumpernickel with a huge dill pickle.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz served in a snifter.
A - Pours very dark brown almost black with a thin tan head that forms a seal aroung the edges of the glass. Specks of lacing left around the glass.
S - Roasted chocolate malts, anise, molasses, caramel, smoked nuts.
T - Roasted/smoked malts, hints of cocoa, some raisin and molasses sweetness, overall very dry though. Suggestions of smoked oysters. Finishes with a clean saltiness and a smoky cacao aftertaste.
M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, chunky feel.
This was my first oyster stout and it was quite good. The oysters were subtle but really added to a solid English stout. This would pair well with food or by itself.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle from drinkstore, enjoyed at home. Pours (with quite a fizz) a very dark brown, bordering on black, with a thick tan foam that quickly dissipates. No lacing. Aroma is a complex blend of herbs, chocolate, molasses and nuts. Taste is equally complex, with a slightly astringent metallic start opening up to release a delicious blend of slight chocolatey sweetness, barley bitterness and a slight herby edge from the oysters. Finish is quite lively for a stout, but nice and dry, leaving a level herby aftertaste. Only my second of the style, but quite delicous, I have to say.
