Rich, sweet dark fruits on the nose, slight hint of citrus hops.
Complex and flavourful - coffee and bitter dark chocolate. A little smokey too. Interesting subtle tang to the finish, possibly the oysters.
Overall rich and full bodied.

330ml Bottle from Coppers, Gosforth.
Black pour with a thin, tan head. The nose is sweet, with loads of toffee and molasses. The flavour is equally sweet and rich, with lots of coffee, caramel and toffee notes, as well as large oat character which gets a little sugary as the glass goes down. Classy tasting beer.

Poured from a 33cl bottle. Mahogany going on black, with a beige head. Aromas of malted hops. Taste is rich with plenty of roasted notes, including roasted oats. There is a rich, complex taste with flavours of coffee and chocolate. Not really any hint of saltiness from the real oysters, but there is a very full, slightly oily, mouthfeel. Complex and interesting. Highly drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
September 8, 2014 - on handpull at Craft Clapham. Ruby black (mostly just black) with a small lasting frothy tan head (4-). Oily and fairly bitter deep roast aroma - coffee? - not much expected saltiness, minimal alcohol presence. Taste follows - quite herbal, with some molasses sticky sweetness - again, not much alcohol, and finally, in the taste, the saltiness - if restrained - emerges. Fairly decent body, slick and slippery, only mild carbonation, but acceptable for the style on cask (I find more than a little carbonation interferes with my enjoyment of most stouts and porters), with a medium treacle/herbal sweet/bitter finish - solid.

[cask, at the Great British Beer Festival 2015] - Hammerton Pentonville Oyster Stout, 5.3%. Dark brown, almost black. Big (!) fluffy beige head. Slightly sour coffee malts, very much of the roasted kind, on the nose. Hints of vanilla. Sour and salty at the start, lots of roasted coffee, some vanilla. Sweet malts in the middle, more cocoa. Mild coffee finish, leading into a more bitter coffee aftertaste. Not bad.
