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.

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 (8389) - 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

sic1314 (3045) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2012
Pours dark with a tan frothy head. Aroma of heavy coffee malt with a chocolate hint. Flavour of coffee and roasted malt with some liquorice, medium bodied for the style, with a dry finish. Not sure where the oysters come in, no real indication of them.

Jabic (403) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Ar: Deep coffee, chocolate and caramel. Ap: Deep brown, almost opaque, but when held up to the light a transparent chestnut - small light mocha head with poor retention and a thin film of lacing. T: Deep cocoa and charcoal up front, moderately smoky - light sweetness with a chalky and minerally flavor - dark caramel - a medium bitterness on the finish with lingering ashy notes. P: Medium body with medium-high carbonation - finish is dry. O: This stout has great depth of flavor - very roasty without becoming acrid, and filled with chocolate, charcoal, and dark caramel - very good!

EHopper (619) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Love oysters, wish I tasted some, maybe a hint of sea. Nice coffee ground, bitter chocolate, and dark, roasted malt. A bit of dryness at end. Nice.

bottle from TWM Fredericksburg - I was rather disappointed in this one. It’s not a bad stout, but the oysters seemed wasted and the balance was off. They could have just added salt and gotten the same effect.
