2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bb06/2016, Maruhn. An oyster stout with no indicated use of oysters (nor their shells for filtering), pasteurised to accompany rather than contain seafood. Overall watery, sessionable and probably quite historical approximation of the style, offering some toffee (thin, sulphurs), coffee roast and gentle ("Burton"ised?) mineral brine for a dry, "smooth, easy" if somewhat spineless tipple.

Excellent light yet complex stout. I donít normally go for stout on the case on its richness and decadence which is only suitable on certain occasions (Iíd rather a good Landbier on a Friday night!). However this was purchased for me from craftbeer.de.
Nose is of coffee mixed with just over toasted bread. The pour isnít as exciting as a nitrogen infused can, and settles with a small off white head but with good lacing.
Taste is rich, pleasing coffee and toffee...not too bitter not too sweet. Also a nice pleasant liquorice sourness which I enjoy to counteract the maltiness without reverting to hops. This all leaves a satisfying, warm rich dark taste in the mouth which is excellently balanced. All tastebuds are tingling in equal measure.
As the bottle states: this is smooth, easy drinking. But also incredibly satisfying. Would love to try it draft!

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2015 This beer is phenomenal. To me this taste like a more refined stout. Not as creamy as I would have liked due to the lack of the nitrogen as I was expecting. But still, this beer is great. Rich taste with hints of woodiness and coffee. On the back end you get a richness and a type of bready, caramel taste. A very pleasant beer. Iíd imagine this would go well with lots of foods. I drank this by itself as it was my first time trying it. And was not disappointed. At $4.70 a bottle on base. Itís not a bad beer to grab a couple of for a night in. Apv is not super high by any means but seems to be just right for the thick mouth feel and aromas youíll get drinking this brew. A great beer.

Some toast. Fairly smooth. Not as aggressive as some other ones iíve had but hey that also isnít a bad thing.

Disappointing pour. Dark -- with red hints if you hold it up to the light like some kind of moustachioed hipster -- but with a one finger cap of foam that collapses to nothingness. Itís the soda pop version of a stout: watery, oddly fizzy, thin, & forgettable. Thereís so many more interesting stouts out there that I cannot imagine I will ever have this again.

Praticamente nera con ampia schiuma di un colore marroncino compatta. Aroma di malto tostato. Non male al palato con malto tostato, note di cioccolato, avvolgente e delicata,ovviamente dolce. Carbonazione medio bassa nello stile. Non eccezionale ma ben fatta.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 0.50l. Pours almost black color with medium creamy light brown head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of roasted malt, leather, rubber and grass. Taste starts with mild sweet roasted malt, follows by licorice and chocolate with grassy note, while finish is mild bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Nice and smooth everyday stout...
