3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ooh, actually includes oysters? Bottle by 02.05.13. Nose is that of an inky stout with roast and a little cowshed. Ruby body is essentially all-black, with a light-brown, rocky head. Watery-light body with gentle roast and light chocolate, relatively dry with a hint of fruit way in the bg, but there are some nice faint ashy and burnt notes in front of it. Enjoyed.

Bottle, deep dark brown color. Café au lait in the malty aroma. Full bodied. Cappucino flavor. Malty sweetish. Smooth. Hint of roast in the aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from BrewTopia. Pours opaque black with thin tan head. Aroma is malty, roasted malt, chocolate and saltiness. Flavor is burnt malt, a little brine, mild salt with coffee hints. The finish is bittersweet chocolate and indeed dry. Average carbonation. The only downfall is the thin body, I guess it does work for a dry stout. Overall not a bad drink.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Meridian Pint. Nitro pour. Thick nitro lace. Deep blacker color with cola highlights. Apple nose with some thick toffee. Taste is lactic, watery, earthy, bitter, waxy chocolate. Headache inducing. Mealy apple character with no body. Lots of bitter dirt. Not a fan. Also, the inappropriate, degrading towards women beer names are getting old and childish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mild roasted aroma, pours an opaque black with a light tan head. Light body, with roasted notes, and an off flavor that I assume is the oysters. The only reason this beer is in my possession is that the Flying Dog mixed pack had this in it instead of the Robust porter. It’s drinkable, but not anywhere near my liking.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Clear darkest brown colour with small to average, minimally lacing, beige head. Roasty dark malty aroma, decent bitter hoppy overtones. Taste is roasty dark malty with intensening, minimally salty, ham touch. Dry finish with hop and malt components, a bit monotonous overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at BD Camden. Pours a black with a tan head. Aroma is lighter, a bit salty, with chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. I get more vanilla in the taste, with coffee, some nuttiness also, with chocolate being a more minor flavor. Still, the taste is still lacking, but the aftertaste is more available than I expected. That is vanilla and nutty. Smooth and dry, while a bit lighter in body.
