3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask in the Wildeman. Poured deep black with very little head. Aroma of very dark chocolate and some roast malt. Quite weak bodied, but the flavour of chocolate, coffee and roast malt with a hint of liquorice more than compensate.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask @ Rushden Historical Transport Society. Impenetrable black witha beige head. Beech smoke and seawater dominate the aroma. The taste is nothing short of incredible: sweet/salty with a meaty umami finish and aftertaste. Full creamy palette. This is a perfect oyster stout, the stuff that dreams are made of.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thx! for the sample. 33 cl. bottle sampled during Zwanze Day shenanigans. Dark brown, blackish with a tanned head. Smell is liquorish, touch dark berries jam, some roast and faint chocolate. Taste is that of sweet liquorish, dark berries, big sugar, some herbs and lighter roast, light coffee, touch chocolate. Touch less carb. med. body for a lower ABV. Stout, not special or anything but pretty satisfactory. Not getting any associations with oyster, taste-wise, I have had oysters only once in my life.
