dogbomb (969) - ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2013
Bottle. Almost jet black with rouge hints. Dark tan head which fades. Chocolate and light licorice on the nose with some coffee and saltiness. Quite mild and light in the mouth, a little light chocolate and maltiness with some saltiness and bread. Really pleasant oyster stout with plenty of taste but nothing overpowering.

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2013
The Rake, Borough 4 Nov 12. Dyp amber. Et ok, litt farget skum. God, litt røstet aroma. Mye kullsyre. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken litt røyk & røstet malt. Svakt syrlig ettersmak.

Brueryguy (1) - - JAN 2, 2013 does not count
Popped this one open at room temperature out of laziness then cooled a little. Huge, fluffy dirty white head. Nose did not show what I thought it would, only a slight salty brine and burnt toast. Tastes very roasty and bone dry finished by a quick hop bitterness. Overall tasty but not as unique as I thought it would be.

radioseer (299) - Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2013
(12 ounce bottle - shaker glass) Opaque black appearance with a roasted chocolate malt flavor. Taste is similar. Mouthfeel is like drinking a coca-cola. This beer would pair pefectly with oysters.

Pours dark brown. Aroma is mostly coffee and chocolate. Taste reveals some earthiness from the shells. Very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nsanders (571) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Dark brown with a nearly white head. Aroma is chocolatey malt, earthy hop, dirty water and oysters. Flavor is sweet, but finishes with a dry bitterness. The body is more watery, with large bubbles.

AWISLguy (1423) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle from Brennan’s. Pours a very dark brown with garnet highlights. Almost no head and almost no lacing. Gotta enjoy that reddish tint in the color though. Aroma has roasted malts, cocoa powder and some earthiness. Taste is of sweet caramel, dark fruit, some chocolate, faint coffee and a dry saltiness that I would say is oyster. Finishes sweet and somewhat short and dry. Hmmm. I would say the "best" oyster stout I have had, somewhat damning with faint praise.

Last beer of a long night-a-drinkin’. Pours slightly opaque black with small tan head. Aroma is roastyness and light chocolate. Flavor is lightly sweet and ashy with very slight brineyness. I dig it.
