Bottle from Frederick wine house. Pours black with a thin khaki head which doesnít leave a lot of lacing. Has some solid cocoa notes on the nose. Fairly dry on the tongue with some solid roasted flavor. Finishes clean. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, purchased today from Perfect Pour. Use by: 01-09-15. Black color. Thin ring of khaki head. Dots and bits of lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. A bit thin for a 7.5% stout. Nice light chewiness to it, though. Some dark chocolate, roast, light coffee aroma. Donít get much of the oyster. Maybe a hint of brine? Not much though, relative to other oyster stouts Iíve tried. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Decent oyster stout. While a bit thin, itís pretty easy drinking. Very nice to enjoy with a seafood dinner. Good bit of chewiness after awhile, after it warms up. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle pours with a nice dark body thatís nearly black and supporting a mocha colored head. The aroma offers up chocolate, mineral water, spicy hops, earthy chocolate and then a light mix of molasses and dark roasted malts. The taste begins with an influx of chocolaty goodness as well as slivers of molasses and dark roasted malts. It gets a bit earthy and spicy hops to midway and then a mild sense of spicy black licorice amid the chocolate and dark roastiness is noticed. Very nice easy going stout.

Pours a dark black with mocha colored head. Chocolate, molasses on the nose. Slightly creamy mouthfeel, bitter roasted malts, hints of vanilla and licorice, sour malty taste at the back of the tongue, somewhat sticky. It?s a decent oyster stout; nothing too interesting.

Bottle from James, thanks! Thick dark black pour with nice chocolate mocha head. Aroma is dark coffee roast, mild hop presence, and molasses. Taste is mild bitter roast up front, medium mouthfeel, a touch of dark fruit sweetness with a bitter roast aftertaste. Nice stout, extremely quaffable for a dark beer.
