$6.99 bomber from Wine Warehouse. Dark brown with a large light brown head. Smells of coffee, chocolates, and a hint of the sea. Taste is bitter, coppery, light chocolate candy.

obguthr (4076) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Walnut and seaweed aroma, charcoal accent. Black, medium tan head. Tangy, odd for a stout. Charcoal flavor. Rather sweet on the back of the palate. Light body, astringent. This didnít work for me at all.

TheBeerGod (5336) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Draft at Mariners Museum Beer Festival. Dark brown to near black pour with a short tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and dark chocolate with light salty notes and some coffee. Taste is big roasted malt notes, coffee, dark chocolate, light salty notes and soft cocoa. Body is medium with a dense, creamy carbonation. Ends with more roasted malt, salty and sweet caramel, dark chocolate, coffee and light cocoa.

4/20/2014. 22 oz. bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Coffee flavors mostly, medium to high carbonation and seem a bit diluted. Good but not great.

I never get that excited about oyster stouts - great idea, but typically the execution turns out results that are frankly gross. But this wasnít bad. Pours black with brown at edges, decent but slightly fizzy head. Aroma was chocolate and coffee, roast malt focused. Flavor matched. Hint of brine, probably because I was looking for it. A bit thin bodied, but not overly so. All in all, a respectable beer. Delighted that Legend continues to branch out a bit. A bit better than the score here I think.

Butters (3848) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Honestly, this is one of the best oyster stouts iíve had. Slightly sweet roasty aroma with a hint of marshmallows. Reminiscent of Creme Brule. Flavor follows quite nicely, with cocoa and toasted graham crackers. Silky smooth and velvety on the tongue. Roasty finish. Very solid.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Bomber from Whole Foods Charlottesville. Pours dark brown with a medium sized frothy brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of big chocolate notes, mineral notes and a bit of roast. The taste is dark fruits, roast, big chocolate, earthy and mineral notes from the oyster. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Solid stout. Iím glad that Legend is continuing itís recent streak of great new beers.
