A light dark is how I can best describe this stout. The palate holds the malty flavours. Mine was served out of the fridge but I expect the licorice and milk chocolates hues to develop as it warms. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (7223) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2015
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 (968) - SÝnderborg, 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.

DavoleBomb (1487) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2015
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. Whatís worse is there isnít a lot of "oyster" in this. Light roastiness, a touch of mineral, and thatís about it. 3.25 T: Taste is also pretty underwhelming, but itís way better than the nose. Mild roastiness with an almost fruity earthiness going on. Itís hard to put into words, but it is enjoyable. I can only assume itís partially the oyster shells. A bit buttery as well. Itís not bad, but not what I wanted either. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Slippery mouthfeel. 3.0 D: Itís okay, but nothing to write home about and not much of what youíd want in an oyster stout. DavoleBomb, Jun 05, 2013

Low medium brown head, black-brown-black body. Roasted malts, floral hops in a tart cream way, hints of chocolate, coffee and iron to the nose. Roasted malts, sweet-salty liquorice, coffee notes, grassy hops, dry black chocolate to the tongue. Palate; slightly dry n creamy, moreish, smooth carbonation, good. Aftertaste with dry dark chocolate and roasted malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
