austejaph (17) - 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.

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 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.
