Bottle: Dark brown pour with a thin brown head. Roasty nose with light bitters. Tastes true to style with plenty of dry roast. A little cocoa and light bitters. Not picking up any oysters, but hey thats ok - it’s good and I usually don’t really dig the dry stout style.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ooh, actually includes oysters? Bottle by 02.05.13. Nose is that of an inky stout with roast and a little cowshed. Ruby body is essentially all-black, with a light-brown, rocky head. Watery-light body with gentle roast and light chocolate, relatively dry with a hint of fruit way in the bg, but there are some nice faint ashy and burnt notes in front of it. Enjoyed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from BrewTopia. Pours opaque black with thin tan head. Aroma is malty, roasted malt, chocolate and saltiness. Flavor is burnt malt, a little brine, mild salt with coffee hints. The finish is bittersweet chocolate and indeed dry. Average carbonation. The only downfall is the thin body, I guess it does work for a dry stout. Overall not a bad drink.
