12 oz bottle @ Hellbenders. Pours a dark balck with a decent tan head. Aroma is a nice caramel and chocolate malt spruce hops and a slight smoke. Taste is nice and smooth with a slightly smoky flavor. Finish is a bit dry but still easy to drink.

Acknud (1072) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Nice and dark. Creamy in texture. There is a distinct oyster aroma that might turn some people off. Taste is full bodied with roasted malt and little hops.

Arayaga2 (1754) - portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Dark brown with a tiny skim of off-white head. Aroma is caramel with some minerality and roast. Taste is the same, with more coffee notes, and dry, without being acrid, or unmalty. $1/12oz

mjakopa (176) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - OCT 24, 2012
Pours a dark colour with little head. Smells of a stronger coffee and toffee aromas with some chocolate. Taste is slighty hoppy with hints of citrus and malts. Not quite sure where to put this one, thereís a strange aftertaste that I could only describe as somewhat salty... In general a good stout, but a little on the thin side.

dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - OCT 21, 2012
poured into snifter, dark black but some light still shining through and one finger brown head. moderate lacing down the glass. the aroma is heavily roasted, strong coffee and some chocolate present but mostly strong coffee bean aroma. the taste i would say is more subdued than the aroma iím picking up a lot of coffee and roasted notes but the body is pretty thin and heavily carbonated. this is my introduction to an oyster stout and iím not noticing any significant difference from any other style of stout, i have read in some reviews of other oyster stout there is a brininess or saltiness to the beer and iím not picking up any of that here. over all though this is a well rounded stout with great roasted character.

The beer has a very unique palate, which I enjoyed quite a bit. This brew is a must try for any stout lover. Dark, easy drinking, big flavor.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2012
Dark dark brown, with a medium offwhite head. Aroma of malts, and not much else, for me atleast. Taste is pretty bland, but sweet. I guess itís okay, for the low abv.

Flavorful, creamy, dry palate. Well balanced with the malt and hops. A safe stout, but it is a dry stout after all.
