On the tap. Velvety taste, soft and perfumed foam, not perceived as much alcoholic despite the %

Silky smooth and creamy. Salt and liquorice from the malt. Not particularly exciting but s olid oyster stout.

jjsint (627) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014
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.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein schwarzes Bier mit schöner bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, Schokolade. Geschmack sehr röstmalzig, angenehm cremig, schokoladig, erdig.

On gravity at the Tewkesbury winter beer festival, 7/2/2014. Black, with a slight, off-white head. Plenty of chocolate, a hint of the sea, some roasted malts and a dryish finish. Good.

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.

C’est bien brun. Le nez tend sur des saveur toreffiées et fumées avec un tres leger ton caramel. En bouche on retrouve le café du stout avec une très légère note iodée. Ca tappe pas trop en alcool. Du coup ca donne une amertume joliment rapeuse et persistante en fin de bouche. avec une très petite astrigeance en debut de bouche qui donne une belle attaque rafraichissante. Joli stout
