Kobal (64) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 14, 2012
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.

From Hipercor, last units. In Duvel glass. At dinner, with artisan pizza. The stout ive liked most. Im not a fan of the style, but ive enjoyed this one. Soft and easy drinking, without the typical coffee flavors I dislike and tasty and easy drinking

Bottle to snifter. No detailed notes - entering from older tasting. Slightly sweeter than expected for an oyster stout, with some red berry taste coming through.

Bottle. Roast, chocolate, some metallic notes and a light milky mouthfeel. Light bitter, rather light bodied, toned down. Ok.

Pours black with pleasing tan brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, mild chocolate and coffee and slightly waxy in a nice way. Taste is medium bitter and sweet, nicely balanced. Smooth and easy drinking, a nice stout!

Bottle at the Black horse Pub -- Really good stout, on the sweeter side. Unknown after reading the bottle, if this was actually an Oyster Stout with real oysters.

jamaty (1240) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Negra, espuma rojiza. Aroma a chocolate, con algo de frutas. Y sabor también, más complejo (tostado, chocolate, fruta roja) de predominio dulce pero con amargor final típico de las stout. Buena de principio a fin. Redonda en boca. Y sobre todo super bebible ya que es muy ligera y en este caso es una virtud.
