The legendary skipjack Rosie Parks once dredged for oysters on the Chesapeake Bay. Once the fastest of the fleet and a beauty to behold, she is now undergoing restoration at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. In honor of Rosie’s history, this 5.2% ALC. BY VOL. stout contains Chesapeake Bay oyster shells.

Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee and caramel. Taste is sweet with a hint of brine, however this may just be my imagination after reading the label. Medium bodied with a slick texture, almost creamy but not quite. Decent.

Appearance: on the lighter side for a stout; almost a water pour, clear dark brown with amber/red highlights, a short, slight, creamy light tan head quickly shrinking to a collar. Aroma: cocoa powder, brine, sawgrass, cold coffee. Taste: semisweet and dry chocolate, slightly roasty with coffee, hint of sour cream, and a good undertone of briny bitterness. Finish: smooth, dry, bittersweet and light. Notes: Could almost be categorized as a dry stout, but not quite roasty enough for that appellation. Liked the very subtle saltwater note. Although oysters repulse me, this beer most certainly did not. On draught into a growler at Roots Market in Rockville, Maryland.

Bottle. Chocolate malt and light salt aroma. Dark chestnut with small head. Sweet-lightly salty chocolate and roasted barley malt flavor. Body a bit light. Pleasant tasting.

Patrickctenchi (4090) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle: Clear, red-lit black with a small tan head. Ashy chocolate, salt aroma. Taste is dry chocolate, a little bitter coffee, a bit of sea salt. A slight overcooked coffee bitter. Light, but pretty solid.

MrHangover (2763) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Pours a headless brownish almost black beer with a small tanned head on top. Aroma of light roast and coffee. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, nice touch of coffee again. Thin mouthfeel, slightly watery, decent enough.

Quite un-stouty for a stout. Rather fizzy, and without much head, though it was from a bottle. Not a bad beer, but nothing to shoot about.

Bork (334) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Unique and different brew with a salty liquorice tone taking center stage. Some roasted notes but generally low on aromas and flavor.

Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Bottle from trade with Scopey, thanks! Dark brown to black color, small tan head. Aroma is malts, lightly liquorice, lightly roast. Taste malts, lightly roasted malts, quite some liquorice, sweetness. Maybe a bit thin texture, but for 5.2% ABV it’s fine, soft carbonation. Not bad at all.
