3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham. Dark brown pour, light tan head. Nose is roasty, grainy and hints at the brininess in the taste. A bit chalky and the palate is a bit prickly, but pleasantly dry.

Poured black with a slightly reddish tint. Small light-tan head. Aroma is milky with chocolate and some nuts. A tad bit of vanilla too. Taste has lots of coffee with some more milk. Good malty flavors too. Finish has some nutty notes with bitterness. Overall tasty!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2012 Aroma is a mild coffee and chocolate smell. It poured a silky black color with a long lasting light tan head. Taste is very interesting. Kind of like chicory coffee and an ever so slight creamy and briny aftertaste. Feels of very full body in your mouth with a creamy texture.

Bottle. Black with a small light tan head. Nose of milk chocolate, roast, light brine, light smoke. Flavor is pretty nice, roasty, light brine, very dry. A bit of coffee and shell in the finish. Nice stuff.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice sweet and toasty aroma. Dark brown with bronze tint. Quickly receding lacing. A tad watery for a stout, but common for cask stouts. Toastiness married with sour-bitter taste and pretty bitter long term. Cask version.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2012 Wow this is delicious. Or maybe i’m just particularly in the mood. Pours a clear dark brown with ring of tan head and chestnuts highlights. Sweet leathery nose with hints of dark chocolate and toasted marshmellow. Flavor is tobacco and roasted malts and earthy leather. Not sure what the oysters are adding here, but I like the finished product quite a good deal! And seriously, what a fantastic name. Bet they won’t get away with that one very long...
The more and more i drink this beer, the more I like it. value for the price and quality if phenominal. That makes 2 allstar beers from these guys imho...

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Roasted malty aroma, with toffee and minerals. The flavor has roasted malts, a light caramel sweetness, and light mineral/brininess. Pretty good.

I am not generally a fan of this type of stout, however, it surprised me. Body was light, flavor was rich and deep. Beer was dry throughout, which I believe is a result of the sea salt which is included in the mix. Even though this beer is full of flavor, the light body makes this a possible session beer.
