Bottle 500ml. Very nice stout, well balanced. Aromas of coffee, dark fruit, and caramel. Taste starts sweet, and has light bitterness throughout. Palate is silky, and medium bodied. Black, with a thin head.

Poured a pitch black with a salty and dry aroma. Kinda reminds me of the ocean but that’s probably in part because of the oyster thing. The mouthfeel was smooth and roasty but not overly dry; there were notes of chocolate and cookies kicking around. Very drinkable for a stout.

Very subtle taste that works its way long after you took a sip. Hints of fruits and coffe, with a medium bitterness, a hazy, black, slick feel, soft carbonation and a long finish.

Really good, one of the best stouts around. Best Stout you can get in the midlands

Burnt chocolate, malty aroma. Beautiful pour - blackish-brown with a ruby tinge of color coming through the bottom of the glass. Taste is same burnt chocolate with malt. The texture is very syrupy with little to no carbonation coming through, and it’s a bit strange on the palate because of the thickness. I may re-rate this after I try it again. Overall a very pleasant drinking experience.

Good rich dark stout. Nothing fancy. Smooth. Not sure why oyster in name. @independent

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep and rich smelling, though it doesn’t actually smell like oysters like I thought it might. I know, I know, that sounds silly, but you never know. Heavy malts and just a hind of alcohol, though at 4.5% that seems off a bit. Great head on pour, well laced galss of malt oil. Perfect, I’ll probly remember I had a stout tomorrow sometime... Taste is very smooth, starts slowly and builds to a head just as the bubbles are nicely warming the tounge. end and aftertaste are dull after the initial flavour. Definately some burntness in the smell after a few more sips. Its a bit watery for a stout but I can see how that would lend it to matching shellfish. Too bad I don’t have any :(
