4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Very dark brown, nearly black, pour with a short khaki head. Rich aroma of smoky malts and milk chocolate. The taste is of bitter cacao and espresso beans with very faint floral hops. The finish offers some lingering smokiness but nothing too overwhelming. A great stout.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black and vanishing tan legs on the glass. The smell is of dark cacao, tree bark and roasted malts. Thin body and lasting palate. Slightly chewy texture. The main component is dark chocolate bar but it is balanced nicely by the roast.

4/5/14 $3.29 bottle bought at CBO. Drank at home after eating at Isabelbyob.
Not a great stout but not bad. Overall, a pretty average beer that could benefit from "something"

Pours dark dark brown with a foamy, lumpy mocha head that darker at bottom than top. Aroma is aroma is roasted malt with a touch of chocolate. Taste is sweet chocolate malt, slightly roasted. There is a bitter coffee earthy oysterish flavor on the back end. This beer has a great smooooorh mouthfeel. Not salty; not fishy. Good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into snifter. Nice head that disappears quick and khaki-colored. All black. Smells like the typical stout. Chocolate, roast malt, caramel. Tastes basically the same as the smell. Hardly any oyster brininess. The palate is lightly medium and sort of oily on my tongue. Pretty good, wish I had some oysters right now!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smooth, but not extremely thick or creamy. Deep roasty malt, hints of coffee, and a long finish. Just a little sweetness at first, then a full body that trails off slowly. Probably the best oyster stout I have tried.
