jzzbassman (1467) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Bottled. Pours a thin ruby brown without much head. Sweet salted caramel aroma, and roasted beans. Flavor is roasted coffee, light to medium body, easy to drink if underwhelming.

theoncle (57) - Barcelona, SPAIN - DEC 24, 2012
D’ampolla. Color marró fosc a negre, fins i tot l’escuma. L’aroma és torrat i cafè, toc de llúpol i llevat. El sabor és torrat, llúpolós i tabacós. Amargor persistent en el retrogust i lleugerament saladeta.

johnnnniee (2139) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Pours a solid dark brown with the faintest of garnet highlights when held to light and a huge tan head that persists. The aroma is quite earthy and roasty with hints of coffee and caramel. The flavor follows the aroma. Nice roasty chocolate and coffee with a caramel and brown sugary sweetness that is cut down by an earthy almost briny flavor. Hints of dark tart fruits round out the flavor nicely. Light earthy hop bitterness linger long into the finish of every sip. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet tart and chewy mouthfeel. Not a bad stout but like other oyster stouts I’ve tried I have to ask, Why?

cbfobes (2267) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a very dark brown almost black with a tan head, aroma has a little bit of chocolate and not a whole lot else, the flavor has some chocolate on the front end with a sweet finish of malt, really nothing stands out in this brew, not bad I suppose.

Bottle from Whole Food Market, NYC 120907. Dark brown, almost black beer with a big beige head. Coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla aroma. Smiliar flavour with all nice stout tastes :-)
