Bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours a very dark brown colour with a thick light tan head that dies down fairly early. A salty, oyster aroma with roasty malt, chocolate and caramel notes. Similar flavours with salty liquorice and oysters again in the linger. Moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours very dark brown with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, a little chocolate and caramel, light hops, and a hint of seafood. Flavor the same, something weird about the finish, probably from the oysters. Average to smooth texture. A decent beer.

On tap at In de Wildeman. Clear dark reddish brown colour, light beige head. Aroma of liquorice, quite sweet, caramel, coffee. Flavour is medium sweet, caramel, some roasted malts, nice coffee and moccha finish that saves the beer for me. Light bodied, a bit thin, but ok/nice nevertheless.
