Quite a roasted flavor on this. Maybe a dark unsweetened coffee. It’s good, but not a great stout.

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2012 Jet black but not much head. Smells of dry chocoltate malt. Tastes like it smell, but with a bit of something... saltwater? Quite bitter... not great. Palate puts me off very quickly.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Mr Bunce. It pours very dark brown, with a medium beige head. The nose is roasted malt, charcoal, salt, subtle tanginess and some treacle sweetness. The taste is roasted malt, charcoal, cocoa powder, ashy and light saltiness, with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and well balanced.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Delicious stout. First time trying an "oyster" stout. Aroma was of dark chocolate and coffee. Very rich. Looked dark and opaque. Very small and brief head that dissipates quick. The flavors burst out on this one. Deep, dark, rich chocolate malt and coffee. Very dry and tasty. I would drink this one on a regular basis.

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.
