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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not impressive as a stout. Tastes like they’re using shucked smoked oyster shells. That what a garbage can of those MFer’s smells like anyway. This isn’t a beer for anyone in food service, too close to bad kitchen oder. Bitter for the claimed IBU. Just a weird beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nice appearance, clear, reddish, decent head + lacing. Nose is grainy, a bit of chocolate. Palate is dry, a bit smoky, not a lot going on here, but it is a good session stout and a good dry stout.
