pours dark brown with a tan head. nose packs a punch of roasted malts, with smoke and maybe sweet vanilla in the background. taste is more roast and malts, along with coffee and earth - also some stong mineral/salty notes that i havenít typically encountered in a stout. dry, with very mild bitterness and light to medium mouthfeel.

Bottle. Very dark brown. Sweet, salty, minerals. Complex and very impressive, yet highly drinkable.

bubbleflubber (1873) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Pours the deepest prune into the glass, with a fizzy tan head that reduces to nothing, including lace. The nose is of lightly roasted grains and some toasted malt. Flavors are of roasted malt, light smoke, burnt spent grain hulls, toasted bread and (just) an effervescent hint of sea salt. The bitters balance nicely, leaving a dry finish. The body is medium, flowing smoothly down the palate, providing an easy quaff. Very nice offering for a dry stout.

From notes. Bottle to shaker. Roasty toasty malt. A little chocolate and a little smoke. Somewhat salty also. Different, but pretty good too.

Bottle from the Microbar, Manchester. Dark brown pour with a beige head. Raisin and chocolate aroma. Dark fruit and chocolate flavour. Not bad.

12 oz bottle from Dís in Pittsburgh. Perfect color, but off a bit on aroma. Thin for a stout with very little taste of oyster. Could have been much better.

RedSox2004 (1351) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Poured deep black, completely opaque, with minimal head and lacing. Roasted coffee aromas up front, with hints of chocolate, and oysters, but only because I was looking for them. Espresso/coffee flavors with a slight hops bitterness sneaking in. Silky smooth mouthfeel, medium to full bodied, and a rich malty aftertaste that lingers. Points off for being gimmicky. Címon, oysters?

Goodgrief (1819) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Dark pour, tan head. Dry flavor with a slight sweet twang. Roast and a touch of lactic chocolate. A bit thin on the tongue. Just okay.

Purchased at Breeze Thru Liquors in Wauwatosa, WI; enjoyed on a Friday prior to my new bandís first show. Appearance is a cola like dark dark brown with a small white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is of chocolate, smoke, a bit of coffee bitterness as well. Taste goes down pretty nice and smooth with a mild bitterness and a pleasant chocolate flavor. This is my first oyster stout, and Iím not getting much of a fish flavor, canít complain.
