From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Not a real oyster stout, just random stout without any real character.

Paladares (180) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 20, 2015
Botella. Negra opaca con mucha espuma cremosa color caramelo. Aroma no muy marcado a café y tabaco. En boca es una stout muy agradable y bebible. Caramelo, café, chocolate... Te podrías tomar 5 o 6 pintas como si nada y eso ya dice mucho de ella...

Swaroga (1954) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2015
Award winning beer but nothing extraordinary. It’s my first beer in this day so my taste buds are sharp still I don’t get much oysters in there. Roasted malts are very delicate still it is quite dark in color with a beautiful brown head. Easy to drink with a chocolate background. Aftertaste is a bit ash. Still it isn’t an intensively flavored beer ; mellow and dull.
