Draught. Creamy off-white good mostly lasting head. Black colour. Moderate malty and hopy aroma. Moderate buitter flavor. Roast and licorice notes. Not very oyster like. Average moderate bitter finish. Creamy palate.

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

Bricks (594) - Delaware, USA - SEP 29, 2012
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.

Black color with a small head. Roasted barley aroma. Roasty flavor with some light "sea-ish" character (iodine? salt?).

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2012
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.

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.

Benzai (8212) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2012
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.

Pours pure black with a thin whispy head. Aroma and flavor are pretty mild but enjoyable.
