wyzzywyz22 (1885) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2013
Bottle, Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Soy smoke. Poured a deep dark brown colour with a small tan head. Sweetish charred malt nose with hints of smoke and soy. Flavour was quite sweet, with further roasted malts and notes of choc and coffee. Didn’t really pick up on the oyster aspect especially. Solid, if unspectacular offering.

chinchill (1378) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 17, 2013
12 oz bottle poured clear, dark mahogany in color, but looks nearly black in the glass. It has a modest size tan foam cover. The head reduces rather quickly, leaving a durable ring but little lacing. Aroma: dark roasted malts with a hint of briny oyster. Taste: Toasty, salty and smokey with just a touch of briny oyster in the surprisingly smokey finish. Sweet/bitter more-or-less in balance. Mouthfeel: medium-full body; medium carbonation; less dry than expected. Overall: A nice stout with plenty of rich, dark roasted malt flavor.

Swaroga (1108) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 17, 2013
33cl bottle. Dark brown, almost black, small brown/grey head. Nose : smoked and roasted aromas, black chocolate, cheese, oyster souse. Sip : Thick and oily. Low carbonation. Sweet , black chocolate cake like flavour . Roasted and smoky notes develop sour and bitter end. Overall the beer malt aromas are a bit too cloying for me. Not easy to drink but tasty.

Not my favorite stout representation but not a bad beer. Slightly weird sweet start with a roasted bitter finish.

Bottle. Thanks to Alvaro from petroleos blog. Pours black with beige head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, with some saltiness. Same for taste, with some sweetness too. Nice beer.

HenryXXX (201) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2013
The nose is oatmeal, salty/brininess oysters and subtle fruitcake. it is really quite light on the mouth feel. The taste is fruitcake, oatmeal, and finishes with a bitterness.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - MAR 12, 2013
It pours very dark and foamy. A medium dark beige foam head does not last very much. Nose is not intense, aromas of moka and cocoa plus roasted cereals, built on a bready, roasted backbone with coffee notes and cereals. Mouth is very very smooth, not sweet at all, just smooth. A very light smoky flavour comes in aftertaste along with the bitterness. Finish is dry as expected. Sticks to the style but not my style.

Doofgoblin (267) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 11, 2013
A dry stout. Aroma is roasty with malt characteristics and a faint saltiness. Pours black with a light tan head, not super foamy. Malt sweetness is promenent, but it fades to a bitterness--and strangely salt? Finishes exceptionally dry with hardly any lingering mouth feel. If you’re looking for a dry stout; this one’s for you.
