Scipio (812) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2013
Pours a very deep brown, perhaps its black, with a thin tan head. Aroma doesn’t really jump out at you. I get toffee, a little coffee, a little bit of licorice, and raisin. The taste at first impression really has a metallic quality to it. Moving on, it has a roasted maltiness overall, bready, mild toffee, and slight qualities of licorice. Aftertaste is very bready. Light in body, with a very thin texture, and lacking in carbonation. I am not a fan of this one.

Gehbe (44) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUN 17, 2016
Medium brown head, some lacing. Aroma is rather weak, some dried fruit, caramel, some herbal/spicy/fruity hop character and a hint of coffee. Taste is minerally, slight roasty sourness, light bitter finish. Very smooth on the palate, highly drinkable. Overal smooth and drinkable, but nothing outstanding.

UXO (1348) - CANADA - MAR 19, 2016
Appearance: near opaque black with brown highlights, one finger of light beige head settling fairly rapidly to a thin cap, minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: coffee, toasted bready malt, caramel. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-high carbonation, off-dry light bitter finish. (3/5) Fairly light, somewhat sweet, and easy-drinking. Pretty simple and straightforward, albeit with a somewhat higher than normal carbonation for the style. As far as I can tell, it’s not actually an “oyster stout” (in the sense that it contains oysters or shells), but is intended to accompany oysters? Personally, I prefer a nice IPA with oysters, but hey, whatever floats your (oyster) boat… (12/20)
