guzzler67 (1537) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Thick beige head and nice lacing sit atop the dark body. Roasted malts suggest coffee and chicory in the aroma. Decently carbonated, medium-to-full bodied mouthfeel. Despite some sweetness, the taste remains solidly roasted malts, with the edge that the oyster shells contribute. Lingering finish; enjoyed on a chilly evening.

BierMeHoos (210) - Maryland, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Black pour with a 1/2 finger tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and some chocolate. Flavor has a bitter coffee and roasted malts. Palate is slightly watery and thin. Overall is not too noteworthy. It is a decent stout. Not as good as their other beers.

hohops (420) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2015
Appearance is jet black, a half-finger beige bubbly head which hangs around. Aroma- very chocolatey, fudge, coffee, molasses hints, treacle, fruitcake, marzipan. Taste- coffee, espresso, chocolate fudge cake, hop bitterness, caramel shortbread, toffee, hints of vanilla ice cream, dry roasty finish. Very good stout.

Garrold (2015) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle. Clear, dark ruby red. Halo of tan bubbles. Aroma has soft, dark fruit. Woody liquorice. Some treacle toffee. Chocolate malts. Hint of green hop. Taste is light sweet. Turns woody dry. Bit of a saline thing going on, as you might expect. Palate is fairly full, although this is a bit over carbonated. Finishes fairly long, roasty bitter. Ok for the ABV.

EcnarM (111) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Pours a deep brown with very little head. Coffee aroma with a little smoky hint. Coffee and faint salt on the flavor with the oyster/salt left behind. Not bad at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells like a stout But a little different like oatmeal? Very dark black appearance...smooth malty roasted taste off the bat...more bitter on finish...too hoppy a finish for me
