andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, - JAN 28, 2013
Im quite sure this belongs under sweet stout. Pours an opaque black colour with big brown head that slowly turns into a thick ring around the glass leaving little lace. Light aroma consisting of mild roasted grain, faint coffee and sweetness. Flavours are bready, sweet, roasted malts, mild bitterness, a bit watery, mild coffee notes

Pite na wyjeździe z butelki. W zapachu czekolada i paloność. W smaku łagodne, dominują nuty czekoladowe, w tle śliwki i owocowa kwaśność, goryczka jest minimalna, palona.

martjoobolut (1708) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2015
From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Not a real oyster stout, just random stout without any real character.

Paladares (102) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 20, 2015
Botella. Negra opaca con mucha espuma cremosa color caramelo. Aroma no muy marcado a café y tabaco. En boca es una stout muy agradable y bebible. Caramelo, café, chocolate... Te podrías tomar 5 o 6 pintas como si nada y eso ya dice mucho de ella...

Swaroga (1813) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2015
Award winning beer but nothing extraordinary. It’s my first beer in this day so my taste buds are sharp still I don’t get much oysters in there. Roasted malts are very delicate still it is quite dark in color with a beautiful brown head. Easy to drink with a chocolate background. Aftertaste is a bit ash. Still it isn’t an intensively flavored beer ; mellow and dull.

emandkey (28) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 31, 2015
Bottled. Apprearance: Dark brown/ black color beer with stiff, long lasting creamy brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, plum, notes of raisins. Taste is light sweet in the beging and medium bitter in the end. Body is light to medium, slick texture, soft cabonation. Quite nice beer, but i would like more lasting taste.

austejaph (23) - LITHUANIA - JUL 31, 2015
Bottled. Visible fizz, thick head of the color light brown. Aroma: medium sweet, reminds dark fruits. Taste is medium sweet at first, later there comes the bitterness. Palate feels tickling on the tongue and on the roof of the mouth. Bitter comes from the throat to the roof of the mouth, it is felt for quite long time.
