Coffee and yeast. Good mouthfeel, with a nice balance of hops and roasted malts. However, the development is a little bit short and flat, but is nice beer anyway.

12oz bottle from Kalamazoo megabev. Pitch Black pour with a few inches of offwhite head that settled to be fairly dense. Smells a lot like root beer - vanilla and a bit of licorice, sweet aquatic scents are evident but just slightly. Lots of carbonation. Sweet and savory Carmel taste, toasty and good. Finish is a bit salty and predominantly dry. This is a good savory solid stout with not too heavy of a body.

355 mL bottle into a long glass at the York Tap. Black with plentiful light brown foamy head. Chocolate roast, dry, bitter, plenty of body and strangely refreshing. Has some candy sugar to it as well. Sweet aroma with some roast to it. Fair, as the novelty wears off after a few sips.

Stagshead tasting. Pours dark brown with very thin dissipating head. Nose of cocoa and the sea. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, oyster brine, vanilla, earth, and toast. Easy drinking and creamy.

Dry coffee aroma on the pour as the finger or so of foam drains down. Some toasted wheat bread in the nose as well. It hints at chocolate but doesn’t really follow through as much as I was hoping. The relatively thin body drinks easily. Nice carbonation. Sweet. Nice backbone of dark malts that skirts the typical acrid notes rather well. The smoke comes through nicely and is well-rounded by the lactic sweetness and the muted coffee and dark chocolate. In the aftertaste, some weak and entirely unoffensive iodine-like notes that remind me of raw PEI oysters. Not bad, overall.
