Aroma is Barley, salt, kale. Dark color, thin looking. Small white head. Taste is toasted barley, coffee, vinegar. Thin feel, more like a porter than a stout. Appropriately, this is probably a good beach stout due to the thin texture, but a bit weak on flavor.

A light dark is how I can best describe this stout. The palate holds the malty flavours. Mine was served out of the fridge but I expect the licorice and milk chocolates hues to develop as it warms.

Black pour. Small tan head that sticks around for a little while. Lacing left behind. A chocolate and slight roast aroma. Not much else. Taste is a roasty bite. A little carbonic. Dry. Not bad, but there are definitely better out there.

The oyster shell is tastable and really interesting but ultimately body is a little too thin.... Coffee, slight cacao nibs, oyster shells. The thin body does make it more drinkable..glad I had it but probably won’t have again

Full black with nice brown head. Aroma of caramel and chocolate. The taste is dark chocolate. It’s a slightly creamy, easy drinking light stout.

(Bottle): Pours a jet black with a medium tan head. Not much aroma but some coffee and liquorice comes through. Taste is some roasted malts with very faint hints of coffee and chocolate. Has quite a metallic aftertaste and watery mouthfeel. It’s acceptable but barely.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2013 Head: coffee, medium-sized, fluffy, fast diminishing. Colour: black (technically really dark red). Aroma: wine, vinegar. Carbonation almost flat. Taste: sweetish, roasted bread, slightly acidic with a faint bitter/roasted finish. Body is thin. Does not feel dry as a dry stout is supposed to be.
UPDATE: Oops. The low abv made me think it’s a dry stout, when it’s not.
