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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured black with about a finger and a half of creamy light brown head. Roasted malts are predominant on the nose, some chocolate and some coffee in there too. Taste is of roasted malts, caramel some saltiness that I would assume is from the oysters; sticky dry finish. Overall a very nice beer, quite enjoyable.

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.
