martin00sr (1248) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2015
Black with frothy tan head. Light malty, soy sauce aroma. Light flavour, roasted notes, fruity, some chocolate perhaps. A bit watery but certainly drinkable.

DavoleBomb (1487) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Poured into a perfect pint. 3.25 A: Black color. One and a half fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is below average and a short ring of lacing is left. 2.75 S: Not a lot going on here, which is really disappointing. Whatís worse is there isnít a lot of "oyster" in this. Light roastiness, a touch of mineral, and thatís about it. 3.25 T: Taste is also pretty underwhelming, but itís way better than the nose. Mild roastiness with an almost fruity earthiness going on. Itís hard to put into words, but it is enjoyable. I can only assume itís partially the oyster shells. A bit buttery as well. Itís not bad, but not what I wanted either. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Slippery mouthfeel. 3.0 D: Itís okay, but nothing to write home about and not much of what youíd want in an oyster stout. DavoleBomb, Jun 05, 2013

Low medium brown head, black-brown-black body. Roasted malts, floral hops in a tart cream way, hints of chocolate, coffee and iron to the nose. Roasted malts, sweet-salty liquorice, coffee notes, grassy hops, dry black chocolate to the tongue. Palate; slightly dry n creamy, moreish, smooth carbonation, good. Aftertaste with dry dark chocolate and roasted malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Almost black color with fluffy fast-disappearing head. Aroma of milk chocolate and fruits. Taste is light sweet, light sour and a little bit bitter. Watery, not rich as it said on the bottle. Aftertaste with some bitterness, but expected more. OK beer.

Vells (885) - Riga, LATVIA - NOV 15, 2014
Smooth Ė yes, rich Ė no way. Light roasted malt background, some choco. Feels bit too thin. Quite sweet with very light bitterness. Decent drinkable dark brew, but nothing to remember

Not so bad, expectations over-exceeded by 1cm :D Typical stout with bit oyster (I suppose) aroma, very weak. Decent stout and malt flavor. drinkable
