Pours black with little head; head doesn’t linger or cling. Nose is umami and slightly salty. Body is somewhat light for the style. Taste is mild roasted nuttiness, a touch of umami saltiness with underlying notes of chocolate and a hint of banana.

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.

Black pour. Small tan head that sticks around for a little while. Lacing left behind. A chocolate and slight roast aroma. Not much else. Taste is a roasty bite. A little carbonic. Dry. Not bad, but there are definitely better out there.

The oyster shell is tastable and really interesting but ultimately body is a little too thin.... Coffee, slight cacao nibs, oyster shells. The thin body does make it more drinkable..glad I had it but probably won’t have again

Full black with nice brown head. Aroma of caramel and chocolate. The taste is dark chocolate. It’s a slightly creamy, easy drinking light stout.

(Bottle): Pours a jet black with a medium tan head. Not much aroma but some coffee and liquorice comes through. Taste is some roasted malts with very faint hints of coffee and chocolate. Has quite a metallic aftertaste and watery mouthfeel. It’s acceptable but barely.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2013 Head: coffee, medium-sized, fluffy, fast diminishing. Colour: black (technically really dark red). Aroma: wine, vinegar. Carbonation almost flat. Taste: sweetish, roasted bread, slightly acidic with a faint bitter/roasted finish. Body is thin. Does not feel dry as a dry stout is supposed to be.
UPDATE: Oops. The low abv made me think it’s a dry stout, when it’s not.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Has more of a Black Ale thing going on. Smooth watery black malt body. Sublime and straightforward, probably would be good with some shellfish. Mellow, molasses. Could have used some hops, some bite, some boom!, but the the mellowness suits it after awhile. Sandy dry notes actually come out after awhile, I suppose this one should be served warmer than refrigerator temp. Pretty decent, better than some of my local Stouts.
