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.

12oz bottle (this is the only time I’ve ever gotten a pearl necklace) - pours really dark brown with tan head and thin lacing. Nose is roasted malts. Flavor adds bitter coffee notes. Dry as the style suggests. Medium bodied. A decent brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
dark pour with a very thin head that quickly disappeared and left minimal ring of lacing. Aroma is the usual - chocolate, coffee, caramel. Taste is the same, with a decent bitterness. Dry aftertaste. Decent but nothing special.

Very mediocre stout. No smell and light taste of what expected, no head but nice body. Good for sessions.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark beer with a thin beige head. Roasty malt nose with some coffee notes. Flavors of coffee, molasses, burnt toast, dark roast grains and something salty that I will credit to the oysters I guess. Caramel sweetness and a coffee bitterness in the finish.
