3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a solid dark brown with the faintest of garnet highlights when held to light and a huge tan head that persists. The aroma is quite earthy and roasty with hints of coffee and caramel. The flavor follows the aroma. Nice roasty chocolate and coffee with a caramel and brown sugary sweetness that is cut down by an earthy almost briny flavor. Hints of dark tart fruits round out the flavor nicely. Light earthy hop bitterness linger long into the finish of every sip. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet tart and chewy mouthfeel. Not a bad stout but like other oyster stouts I’ve tried I have to ask, Why?

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a very dark brown almost black with a tan head, aroma has a little bit of chocolate and not a whole lot else, the flavor has some chocolate on the front end with a sweet finish of malt, really nothing stands out in this brew, not bad I suppose.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark, shiny, reflective black with a thin, light tan head. This has a thick aroma of the seaside. This is a "chewy" beer, ripe with raisin, carob and a bit of salt. Enjoyable. (#4856, 12/14/2012)

Mineral, salt, tannic notes, metallic, light bitter chocolate on the tongue. Delicious dryness without being cloying. A great sessionable stout.
