2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Balsamy blackish with tan brown top it pours, on nose - like nothing with very far hints of roasted malts. Taste is no sweet not bitter, nor sour- weird middle. Tastes like poor dunkel, a bit yeasy-fruity esters. Hops flavor- almost absent. Medium to light bodied, min dry, floury finish. Even oysters wonít like it.

Bottle. Near black with a beige head. Aromas are earthy coal with raisins and cola. Some funky lemony notes with light coffee. Dark chocolate with dusty yeast. Flavours are cola with earthy coffee and metallic notes. Raisins with nutty cocoa and woody aspects. Some lemon, quite plummy. Not bad.

Black with a abeige bubbly head. Aromas are light, sweet roast coffee. Flavours are thin roast malts with some sweetness. Soda water on the palate with a Perrier type aftertaste. Its OK, but ultimately thin. And it doesnít contain any oyster so it isnít an "Oyster Stout".

On keg at the Craft Beer Rising event at the Drygate brewery. Itís almost black in colour with a nice fawn head. Thereís plenty of chocolate biscuit going on but I really have to search for that savoury/salty note that Iím expecting from the oysters. Itís debatable whether itís there at all. The taste repeats the nose and thereís a creamy textured medium bodied structure to it. The finish is also agreeable.

Normales Stout ohne grosse Hoehepunkte. Leicht im Kaffee, etwas Malz, ein paar Nuesse vielleicht. Kaum Saure zum Schluss - langweilig.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Went down very well. Easy drinkable but a bit watery with an easy chocolate aroma. Nothing special but not bad at all.

Bottle from Morrisons in Newport. The beer pours out in a deep black colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of roasted malt and torf. Taste of malt, roast, leaves, wood, torf and dark chocolate. Earthy. Not a bad beer, yet nothing special.

Bottle bought in last UK holiday and shared with MichaelBruch. Aroma of sweet coffee, rich and creamy texture with a very dark body and white head. Taste of sweetened espresso combined with bittersweet chocolate. Nice one, but not outstanding.

Bottle from Morrisons. Black with a fine tan crema. Plum, cocoa and ash on the nose. Dry, creamy, old leather, burnt-bitter and bitter-sweet. More ash and dry plum on the finish, reminiscent of a heavy and dry Schwarzbier.

50cl bottle pours near-black with a deep beige head, burnt malt on the nose along with roast coffee and a little burnt caramel. A little over-carbonated, but eventually the roast malt breaks through onto the palate along with notes of dark fruitcake. More burnt, bitter and coffee flavours in the aftertaste. Good, but too much fizz and not enough body.
