33cl bottle @ home. Opaque almost black color, medium sized light brown head that diminishes fairly quickly. Smell malts, light roastyness, earth, cereal, coffee. Taste malts, lightly roasty, coffee, lightly earthy, bitter. Medium body, medium carbonation. Better than expected.

DutchDrebus (3967) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2012
Bottle @ home. Not entirely black, but pretty much so. Lasting small off-white head. Smells some chocolate, a bit roasty but all not too shocking. Tastes definitly more roasty then expected, a bit sweet and thats pretty much it, but it’s enough. The roastyness is very nice. Medium body, but the texture isn’t thick or silky. Quite a lot of carbo for this type of beer.

JK (4401) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Black with low carbonation. Good aroma of roasted grain and some coffee. Good palate, somewhat thick. Heavily roasted quality. I can’t say I taste any oyster. Dry grain finish. This is a good dry stout.

Jriggz7 (117) - Indiana, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Black body with antique white head. Smokey, roasted notes and slight chocolate undertone aroma. Taste very complex roasted and smoke with slight oyster finish. Medium body with lively carbonation that makes it Very refreshing for a stout.

RedCloud (129) - Rhode Island, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Pours a dark chestnutty black with about a finger of white head. The head leaves a lot of lacing. The smell is of creamy coffee, with some peppery notes in there as well. Not very strong smelling. Taste starts off smooth, sweet, and roasty, with very slight notes of steak. Finishes fairly dry, but without the usual bitterness of a dry stout. Has a light to medium body, with a medium level of carbonation. Personally didn’t really get the oyster, but maybe that’s where the slight saltiness came from.

DSG (5731) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks Yoav. Very dark brown to black color with a beige head. Aroma of milk chocolate. Sweetish flavor of chocolate and light saltiness. Finishes dry and more roasty. Medium-bodied.

MoritzF (8464) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2012
(bottle, 35.5cl) Almost black coloured hue with a brownish mid-sized foamy head. Aroma of dark berries and mildly roasted malt with notes of caramel and a whiff of mocha. Moderately roasty bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Roasty malt-character with subtle berry-fruity notes, dark chocolate, liquorice; dry roasty bitter and mildly earthy finish. Easy-going Dry Stout. 31.VIII.12
