Looks the part, but doesn’t deliver. Watery and bland flavour. Disappointing.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with tupalev at Chester’s Beers of the World in Hamilton. Pours black with a small light brown head. Aroma was practically non-existant, a very faint oyster stout smell and chocolate lurking somewhere in there. But it looked great at least. As far as oyster stouts go this was enjoyable but ultimately dissapointing as it was very mild and watery -- it needs more oomph. I’d drink it again but would choose many oyster stouts over it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2007 Tried another bottle thanks to my friend big red. Best before Jan 07. Much better aroma- nice dry malt, a little syrupy sweet. Taste better too - really nice dru uk style stout with hint of syrup in end. Much better. Original 4/4/5/2/12
Bottle, Chester’s Hamilton. Dark black pour. Creamy brown head - looked lovely. Hardly any aroma at all. Medium creamy mouthfeel. Roasted creamy taste - not much flavour really and certainly nothing off or offensive, but nothing to really recommend either. Just a well made solid session stout that didn’t impress of piss me off. Certainly none of the dessert like qualities I have found in other oyster stouts. Shared a bottle with blankboy.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2005 Pours nice and dark with an off-off-white head. Nice lacing. A milder beer than I expected (beacuse of the name) with notes of chocolate an fudge. Feels nice and creamy in the mouth and has a bitter and "fudgy" finish.

Una cerveza negra como otra cualquiera. Tiene un fuerte aroma y sabor a regaliz. No es la peor que he probado pero ni mucho menos la mejor

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep amber black with a mocha colored head. Clean nose with some molasses. Light in the mouth with out a lot to it, and a dry finish. Light roasted flavors with some tootsie roll and faint molasses. Not much too it, but a decent enough quaffer.
