maxwelldeux (3496) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a very small tan head on there, that disappears almost immediately. Nose is fairly roasty, with just a hint of some oystery sweetness coming through. Taste is very light and easy to drink, slightly sweet, and with a bit of roasting. All in all it’s drinkable, but nothing terribly exciting.

mzaar (1525) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2014
Burk. Svart med moccafärgat skum. Jisses, vilken trist stout. Närmast doftlös, aningen av rostad malt och kaffe som bäst. Tunn kropp, närmast vattnig. Kaffe och rostad malt även här. Minimal beska, lätt sötma. Sa jag trist?

Iznogud (618) - CROATIA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle 500 ml from Vrutak, Zagreb. Pours dark brown with beige head. Light body, roasted malts, sweetish, some coffee. Too watery and lacks flavor.

ejr (77) - Sarpsborg, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
Mørk, mørk brun med et off white skum, skummet var tykt og holdt bra. Maltete aroma med innslag av karamell, mørk frukt og sjokolade. Smaken følger aroma med røstet malt, karamell, mørk frukt og hint av sjokolade. Litt tynn munnfølelse.

Light brown headed dark brown beer with a a coffee aroma. Tastes sweet with a hint of bitterness. Texture is oily with a medium body and an avarage carbonation. I definitely like it.

Ottimo esempio di stout, anzi, di oyster stout. Non è stata fatta con l’utilizza di vere ostriche, ma sono riusciti a riprodurre le caratteristiche organolettiche di un’autentica oyster stout, e a produrre così un ottimo risultato. Percepibile quindi anche un po’ di salato che, abbinato alle classiche note di tostato, caffè e cioccolato, la rendono una splendida stout che trova il suo coronamento ovviamente se degustata insieme a delle ostriche.

LasseVPedersen (216) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2014
Can, 50cl. Pours deep brownish black colour with a stable, creamy one-finger beige head. Aroma is Coffee-like, roasted malt along some fruity notes and chocolate. Flavour is very alike, mostly dark roasted malt, medium sweetness, slight burnt, decent bitter chocolate aftertaste. Very smooth palate, light-medium body and soft carbonation. Quite good, bit too light bodied to be really good though.

aleksander9 (369) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2014
Black with creamy yellow head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, syrup and cappuccino. Smooth and creamy palate. Aftertaste is round, roasted, some burnt notes and floral. Overall: nice. Maybe a little weak in aroma and aftertaste.

MrHangover (2452) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2014
Can 500ml. Pours a black beer with a medium sized beige creamy head on top. Aroma is milky, salty, coffee and some roast. Flavor is medium sweet, some coffee and caramel with a medium salty touch in the back. Big, rich malty tones overall. Quite OK beer, nothing too impressive.
