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.

Bottled, 355ml from S.H Jones, Banbury. Black with light brown head. Sweet and fairly thick on the palate, there is a fruity tone to it, plummy and sweet strawberry perhaps. Reasonable depth, some roasty notes, a hint of tar. It’s ok.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a very deep red color, almost black. Aromas of liquorice and cacao suggest a strong, deep taste. Taste is bitter with roasted tones and something a littlebit salty. Carbonation is a little bit too high, which gives a light tingling soury taste. Could have done with less carbonation. Dry mouthfeel. Compared to other Flying Dogs this one disappoints me a little.

Impressive really, a bit maltier than others I’ve had. Still with a nice minerality but rich with milk chocolate overtones and a nice roast. Good stuff.

Flaske fra polets nettbutikk, delt med Ovesen: en tørr og fin stout med diskret aroma, balansert smak og en slank kropp som gjør den elegant og lettdrikkelig.

Interesting beer on the palate. Flavor notes change between a chocolate, roasted flavor, coffee, etc. Seems to come off a bit flat.

Great flavor! Palate is smooth and a nice chocolate and burnt grain aftertaste that lingers. Pour is pitch black.
