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.

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 (428) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, 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.

nuplastikk (5068) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Cask at Birreria Paradison. Brown-black, massive beige head. Cellar temp, mellow carbonation, pretty much spot on for a firkin. Mild chocolate tones, very true to style. Mellow, doughy, not so far removed from a Porter. Touch of roast and amber malt. Pretty solid.

vipinvelp (2826) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2013
Pretty dark brown with fluffy light brown foam head. Aroma is weak, coffee and caramel. Taste is a little dissapointing, weak bitter, small coffee, had more anticipation. Aftertaste is dry, short lasting. (Velp 201303)

MrHangover (3211) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown, almost black color with a medium sized, tanned head. Aroma has little roast, definitely some oyster detected. Flavor is medium bitter, some molasses. The oysters do not return in flavor. Decent beer.

Art (2232) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Little to no head in the pour. Pours a deep dark brown. Boy do I love a good dry stout and this is no exception. This is well done with that crisp dry finish and malty aroma.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours black with a small tan head. The nose is heavy with roasted malt, minerals, and a slight earthy note. The flavor brings a little coffee to the party and some dark chocolate notes emerge as it warms. It still leans heavily on the roasted malt flavors and the mineral quality makes me think of oysters. Medium to full body with a dry finish. Solid.
