3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black pour with a billowing brown head. Aroma holds chocolate, roasted malt, salt, and a touch of dark fruit. Flavor is quite fruity, almost like a Belgian style stout, with lots of chocolate, roast, and saltiness. Palate is quite dry, with well balanced carbonation and a medium body; glides across the tongue quite nicely. Unique, and a tasty stout overall.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours and motor oil black with a rich expresso foam dark brown head. It has a earthy taste with roasted malt, chocolate and toffee flavors. There is also a slight salty mineral background to it too. A good stout but nothing to set it apart from many others.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; poured a pretty thick and dark brownish color. Aroma of cocoa, roasted, minerals, caramel, and meat. Flavor was really dry, minerals, roasted malt, cocoa and caramel. Very dry and roasted, nothing really unusual, but solid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Big, burnt aroma, a pinch of salt, full but one-dimensional. Nice, rich body. Pretty dry, lightly minerally, pleasant but uncomplex.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle sampled on 12/13/09: Pours a mostly opaque oily black with a spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet doughy dark caramel malts and some light fruity notes and a hint of soy sauce. Starts with decent fullness and some molasses and light fruity complexity before a semi-dry toasty finish.

Tried from a large bottle at Woodshop 5.0. Bland. Black color. Small head. I don’t think there is anymore t o say. It is really brewed with oysters? Can’t tell, though I think calcium carbonate from the oyster shells would be appropriate to lower the mash pH from dark grains.
