4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours ebony black with medium sized tan head. Nose is dark malt and coffee. Nice and creamy on the palate, with flavors of dark roasted malt, slightly burnt coffee and a hint of hops on the finish. Could not detect any oyster flavors. A good, though, not great, stout.Stands up well to a loaded pastrami and cheese sandwich on pumpernickel with a huge dill pickle.

Deep black with a very thin fizzy head. Aroma is sweet chocolate and roasted malt with a slight salty tang. Toasty, bitter malt and chocolate flavors up front then fading to a slight toffee sweetness. A dry toasty bitter finish rounds it out quite nicely

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown with a thin fizzy head. Aroma is malty caramel and chocolate. Flavors of fig, soy sauce, old leather and cellar. No oyster prominence at all, which is perhaps for the best. Very smooth and a bit on the thin side. Overall not bad, but not one I’ll likely seek out again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from favourite beer. Deep black colour, with thin tan head. Surprisingly fizzy. The aroma doesn’t give away the oyster in the stout, but has chocolate and roasted malt. Taste has the same, and again not much oyster. Not as good as I had hoped, a touch disappointing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours very deep brown color with just a hint of light seen shinning trough. Upon pouring there is a one finger of fizzy tan colored head that fades very rapidly to leave just a tiny trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is rather big of a roasted malt and coffee smell mixed with some very light dark chocolate notes. As may be expected form an oyster stout, there is also some salty sea like aromas mixed in there as well with just a hint of a charcoal and toast smell as well.
Taste – The taste begins with a heavy roasted malt flavor with a little bit of a toffee sweetness upfront. The toffee quickly fades giving a very dry and roasty flavor. Along with the nice roasty flavors of the brew, are some faint hints of seawater mixed with a touch of a charcoal and toast taste. While a bit of sea is present on the taste it is very light overall, leaving a mainly drier roasted dark malt flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium to slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. A bit of a thicker body would have suited the darker flavors much better, with a slightly lower carbonation level doing the same for the dry and roasted taste.
Overall – Not really much oyster going on in this one. Besides the nose, which gives a decent level of saltiness, overall the brew is really just a drier and roastier stout. OK, but nothing exceptional.
