4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Situation: Fat Tuesday refreshment before forty days of self-imposed prohibition…
Glassware: “Lovely day for a GUINNESS” pint…
Appearance: dark opaque body with a thick, marshy brown head…
Aroma: a nice pitch of roasted malts and salty seas—that’s not a real description, but it works…
Palate: slick, swift, almost oily texture waxes the tongue…a coating, steadfast aftertaste…
Taste: caramel and brown sugar—a strong combination that sweetens an already thick malty stout…
Overall: the experience is pleasant, smooth, and sweet; I paired it with nothing, so I cannot extol its virtues with said oysters…

This brew got my attention - as I do like oysters. However it was pretty damn good, lots of smooth malts and hints of brown sugar. Maybe it was in my head, but I even tasted a bit of oysters (though I don’t know how you put that in a beer). Not that bad, and for a dark beer, VERY drinkable.

Bottle thanks to jcwattsrugger: Poured a black with red edges, there was very little to no head. Aroma was very woodsy from barrel some spice and malt. Taste is sweet with a roasted barely and malt flavor.

This fascinating beer was courtesy of Strykzone. Thanks Dave. Poured black with a huge foamy tan head and glue like lacing rings. Nose of burnt malts. The body is medium and the mouthfeel silky smooth. The flavor is roasted malts with and coffee, Don’t taste oysters, but get brine and some bitterness that shows up all the way to the smooth finish. Very enjoyable brew.

22 ounce bottle. The aroma is filled with roasted malts and chocolate. What a great session stout. The flavors of chocolate and roasted malts dominate, but there was a soft mineral note as well. Everything was balanced well, a great beer.
