kapusil (514) - HUNGARY - DEC 11, 2012
0.33l bottle. Aroma of some chocolate, coffee and cherries. Tastes like cherry, grapes, chocolate and some floral hoppyness and maybe a hint of saltyness. I haven’t really noticed the presence of the oysters. Nice dry finish. Good one.

Pitch black body. Light brown hesd. Aroma has rich and acidic roasted malt aromas. Bit salt. Very foamy palate, bit liqourice on top. Ash, burned candy, salty coffee. Bit watery, but not too much. Light and tasty.

Nice stout with coffee and roasted aromas; it is well balanced; perhaps some mild salty brininess but this is pretty distant.

ogreface (1331) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 7, 2012
csakajosor.hu Teljesen sötétbarna, szinte fekete színe van, habja tömör, krémes, közepes méretű, tejeskávé barna és kitartó, mint egy maratoni futó. Illata édeskés, vaníliás, kakaós, tejcukros, kávés, zabkekszes és benne egy cseppnyi kagylóvíz is. Íze egészen lágyan kezdődik, tejeskávésan, pörkölt magvasan, vaníliásan, kis karamellával, aztán jön egy kávés, dohányfüstös, fakormos, kesernyés folytatás, ami igen szárazzá teszi. Közepesen testes és szénsavas. Utóíze kesernyés és igen száraz. Jó fajta, férfias stout.

glennmastrange (2145) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle. Moderaate toasted and strong coffee notes for the malt, light herbs and earth for the hops and yeast with a hint of paper in the background. Head is small, fizzy/frothy, light brown with a few spots of slippery lacing, and is fully diminishing. Color is dark brown. Flavor starts moderately acidic, and finishes moderately to heavily bitter and a little salty. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation and a dry finish. An okay drinker, just a little flat in the flavor, typical for a Dry Stout I guess.

guzzler67 (1484) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Thick beige head and nice lacing sit atop the dark body. Roasted malts suggest coffee and chicory in the aroma. Decently carbonated, medium-to-full bodied mouthfeel. Despite some sweetness, the taste remains solidly roasted malts, with the edge that the oyster shells contribute. Lingering finish; enjoyed on a chilly evening.
