On tap at pangaea for beer week with oysters! Aroma is very English, like a English stout or brown. Nice thick head, nice lacing. Flavor is light, there is a nice bitterness to it. Some roasted flavor. Palate is thin. Overall not bad

Mild aroma, a hint of licorice and maybe vanilla. Gently roasted taste and some chocolate as well. Decent market beer.

Copenhagen 15/9 2014. 50 cl can from Fakta. Pours very dark brown - almost black with dark brown head. Sour dense aroma with chocolate notes. Tingly mouthfeel. Taste suprisingly light. Chocolate and coffee but almost without aftertaste. Cheap but decent stout.

mikkopen (934) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2015
500 ml bottle. Black, with a creamy tan head. Sweetish roasted malty aroma with fruity and chocolate notes. The flavour is roasted malty, with notes of chocolate and caramel. A little thin on the palate, but otherwise not bad at all.

Sample from a bottle. Dark brown, near-black color. Thin khaki head, loose bits of lace. Clear red around the edges. Milk chocolate, dark fruit, nice mild oyster brininess. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of slick lighter carbonation. Kind of chewier body for the lighter ABV. A satisfying english-style oyster stout. Good toastiness to it. Would be nice with food, I think.

500 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma has sweet malts typical of British beers, chocolate, some briny character. The flavor follows suit with a weird finish.

martin00sr (1586) - Haderslev, 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.

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. What’s worse is there isn’t a lot of "oyster" in this. Light roastiness, a touch of mineral, and that’s about it. 3.25 T: Taste is also pretty underwhelming, but it’s way better than the nose. Mild roastiness with an almost fruity earthiness going on. It’s hard to put into words, but it is enjoyable. I can only assume it’s partially the oyster shells. A bit buttery as well. It’s not bad, but not what I wanted either. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Slippery mouthfeel. 3.0 D: It’s okay, but nothing to write home about and not much of what you’d want in an oyster stout. DavoleBomb, Jun 05, 2013
