Dark brown color, with average head and body. Modest roast aroma and flavor. I love oysters---but couldn’t catch their influence.

keanex (1560) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Best before February 22, 2013.
Appearance: The beer pours a dark brown but is pitch black in my glass, only a thin tan head with poor retention, leaves a thin coating and a messy ring.
Aroma: Roasted malts and cocoa, make up the aroma, there’s a slight brine, though it could be me adding it mentally due to the style of the beer.
Taste: Roasted malts and cocoa are on the intro with a light smoke, there’s a light brine here that shows up a bit on the finish. The finish is rather dry and leaves a light smoke lingering.
Palate: Medium body, oily texture, and a fair amount of lightly fizzy, lightly sparkling carbonation.
Overall: I like this except on the finish, the finish has this dry light brine and smoke combination that lingers. This is decent, but it’s just the finish I don’t like, it detracts from the overall experience for me.

Bottled. Pours a deep dark brown/ruby with a finger thick, neverending creamy beige head on its top. The aroma brings caramel, vanilla, earth and mild roasted malt along. Slick, somewhat creamy texture. Sweetbitter and tannic finish with coffee malts. Enjoyable one.

Bottle. Pitch black beer with a strong head. The aroma is very reasonably roasted and the flavour is roasted and malty with a good amount of bitterness. Overall a reasonable stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Temptation (244) - - NOV 21, 2012
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
